But before you get ready to master the downward dog, the yoga mat you use can truly determine what type of yoga experience you'll have. The thickness, material, length, and even cell type of a yoga mat are all factors to consider when you're on the hunt for your perfect yoga accessory.

Whether you plan on taking a yoga class on the beach during a girls' trip or want to indulge in hot yoga to sweat off the stress, there's a mat for that -- you just have to select the right one.
