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 surface of 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. Grey is the obvious choice for your understated types 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: Approx 2.5 kg (5.5 lbs)

Liforme Evolve Mat

Liforme Evolve Mat:

Same dimensions, weight, and practising surface as our original 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 by giving you the width-ways alignment on the mat 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. True minimalists may go for grey but it also comes in pink, blue, and green.

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 classic Liforme Yoga Mat and the full AlignForMe guidelines, but in a significantly lighter weight and with slighter smaller dimensions. The compact travel version of our mat comes in at around 1.6 kg (3.5 pounds (shaving a good two pounds off the weight of the original), making it perfect for the international traveler, 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 basic cushioning, making our travel mat a very well balanced choice! Because it is thinner, you can layer it over a studio mat to get that optimal Liforme practising surface experience at your studio without having to carry around the heavier original Liforme Yoga Mat. Same colour range as our original Mat (grey, pink, blue, and green). 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 bundle 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 plus makes this mat the perfect gift for your tree-hugging pals and those purple people (you know who you are).

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 practising surface as all our larger mats. We’re seeing lots of people coming up with their own interesting uses (and names!) for this cute little mini-mat (several have dubbed it ‘the handstand mat’). The Liforme Yoga Pad comes in our Purple Earth colour, meaning that we’re donating 5% of sales of this product from to Friends of the Earth as well.

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

Special Edition Mats:

We have several special edition mats available. Supplies of these mats are limited from time to time, so get in quick if you like the look of one of these.

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)

Year of the Dog Mat

Year of the Dog Mat:

Specially designed to celebrate the lunar Year of the Dog, 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, the deal is sweetened by the donation of 5% of website sales to the incredible RSPCA, the original animal welfare charity that has been helping animals the World over for more than 200 years.

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

Whichever you choose, know that your new mat is designed to provide the ultimate surface for asana practice while being made by a company (that’s us!) who you can truly believe in, and who have gone to great lengths to ensure a truly ethical supply chain and finished product, and who give back significantly through our charity partnerships.
