Liforme Mat Buyer’s Guide: Find the Right Yoga Mat

Wondering which Liforme yoga mat to choose for yourself or to give as a gift? Wonder no more because our buyer’s guide gives you the low down on each of our mats and recommends the perfect one for every yogi on your list. Of course, all of our mats are environmentally friendly, non-toxic, grippy, generously proportioned to fit people of all sizes, and feature a version of our unique and original alignment designs. And they all come with a complimentary handy mat bag as well!

Liforme Yoga Mat

Liforme Yoga Mat:

This is our original, classic design featuring the AlignForMe graphic on the dream practice surface, which took us 5 years of seriously hard work and in-depth research and development to create. The alignment guide etched right onto the mat makes it ideal for beginners. However, the AlignForMe system is intelligently designed to be flexible and to assist you as you grow in your practice, so these are very appropriate for advanced yogis as well. The absorbent, completely unique top layer provides our revolutionary Liforme grip, even when sweaty-wet. You can say goodbye to those fussy mat towels once you get onto your Liforme Yoga Mat. The Liforme Yoga Mat is available in our classic range of colours: grey, pink, blue, and green.

Dimensions: 185cm (72.8 inches) long x 68cm (26.8 inches) wide
Weight: Approx 2.5 kg (5.5 lbs)

Liforme Evolve Mat

Liforme Evolve Mat:

Same dimensions, weight, and practice surface as the Liforme Yoga Mat, with a pared-back version of the alignment guide for yogis who prefer a simpler visual. The strong Central Line, which provides the structure for so many postures remains, along with the very useful End-to-End lines, which offer reference points for length-ways alignment. Of course, you still get the amazing grippy surface that makes asana practice such a pleasure with Liforme mats. We made this mat for anyone who finds the original a bit too busy. Grey is the obvious choice for the true minimalists while our mainstay alternatives of pink, blue, and green liven things up with a nice touch of colour.

Dimensions: 185cm (72.8 inches) long x 68cm (26.8 inches) wide
Weight: 2.5 kg (5.5 lbs)

Liforme Travel Mat

Liforme Travel Mat:

This mat has the same surface and hence the same incredible grip as the Liforme Yoga Mat and the full AlignForMe guidelines, but in a significantly lighter weight and with slighter smaller dimensions. This compact version of our mat comes in at around 1.6 kg (3.5 pounds), shaving a good two pounds off of the original, making it perfect for the international traveller, commuter, or yogi on the go. However, unlike some travel mats which are so thin as to be almost non-existent, we’ve managed to pack in some light cushioning. Because it is thinner, you can layer it over a studio mat to get that optimal Liforme surface experience when you’re away from home. Liforme Travel Mats are available in all our Signature and Expressions Collection colours. If you can’t decide whether to choose the travel or full-sized mat, you can get the best of both worlds with our Yoga & Travel Mat Bundle. You’ll get one mat for home and one for excursions at a special price.

Dimensions: 180cm (70.8 inches) long x 66cm (25.6 inches) wide
Weight: Approx 1.6 kg (3.5 lbs)

Liforme Purple Earth Mat

Liforme Purple Earth Mat:

Our beautiful earthy deep purple mat is simply the latest colour-way for our original Liforme Yoga Mat and Liforme Travel Mat. We’ve separated them out because 5% of each sale of Purple Earth mats from our website is earmarked for our leading environmental charity partner, Friends of the Earth. This affirms our commitment to making sure that your yoga practice stays as eco-friendly as possible. This additional perk makes this mat the perfect gift for your tree-hugging pals and all the purple people in your life.

Dimensions: 185cm (72.8 inches) long x 68cm (26.8 inches) wide
Weight: Approx 2.5 kg (5.5 lbs)

Liforme Yoga Pad

Liforme Yoga Pad:

A mini version of our mat for anyone who wants a little extra padding under the knees or elbows. Its super-portable size means you can easily take it anywhere you might need a bit of cushioning or traction. It comes with the same totally unique, specially engineered Liforme practice surface as all our larger mats. We’re seeing lots of people coming up with their own fun uses (and names!) for this cute little mini-mat, including ‘the handstand mat’. The Liforme Yoga Pad comes in all our Signature and Expressions Collection colours.

Dimensions: 33cm (13 inches) long x 64cm (25 inches) wide
Weight: Approx 0.65 kg (1.4 lbs)

Expressions Collection Mats: 

These bright-coloured beauties elevate your practice and lift your mood. All are also available in Liforme Travel Mat and Liforme Yoga Pad sizes. Bundle for extra savings.

Love Mat

Love Mat:

This red mat is all about the heart-centre with a lovely twist on our central lotus motif and hearts in place of the usual Reverse Points. It’s a fantastic expression of your devotion for any loved one (including yourself!) and a reminder to us all that love wins.

Dimensions: 185cm (72.8 inches) long x 68cm (26.8 inches) wide
Weight: Approx 2.5 kg (5.5 lbs)

Gratitude Mat:

Our deep pink mat with its central prayer hands and lotus motif reminds us to always be thankful for the good things in our lives, including yoga. A regular gratitude practice reduces stress and improves your sense of well-being. Also comes in classic grey.

Dimensions: 185cm (72.8 inches) long x 68cm (26.8 inches) wide
Weight: Approx 2.5 kg (5.5 lbs)


Happiness Mat:

The Happiness Mat’s vibrant orange colour and radiant sunshine mandala assure us that every little thing is gonna be all right. You can’t help but feel a little lighter and brighter when you step onto this mood-elevating mat with its little birds of happiness at the Reverse Points.

Dimensions: 185cm (72.8 inches) long x 68cm (26.8 inches) wide
Weight: Approx 2.5 kg (5.5 lbs)

We donate 5% of the sales of each Zodiac Animal Mat to the incredible RSPCA, the original animal welfare charity that has been helping animals the world over for more than 200 years. Be on the lookout for a new animal design each January!

Year of the Dog Mat

Year of the Dog Mat: This red mat adapts our classic graphic with paw prints in place of the usual Reverse Points and an adorable pup in the centre. Perfect for any dog-lover!

Whichever mat you choose, know that it has been designed and produced with heartfelt intention to provide the ultimate asana experience by a company that prioritises environmental responsibility, an ethical supply chain, and giving back to our community through our charity partnerships. Welcome to the Liforme family! We’re so happy you’re here!
