A Lightweight Travel Yoga Mat That’s Perfect For Taking On Trips

I have my preference when it comes to yoga mats, they have to be sticky and immovable. The Jade Yoga mat is my favourite when it comes to yoga and any kind of floor work, but it’s too bulky to tote on a plane. Technically you could bring it with you as a carry-on, but when you’re traveling with three children, an extra carry-on is out of the question.

Last year I invested in Manduka’s eKO SuperLite Travel Yoga Mat. It’s foldable, provides a sticky surface and can be tucked into our luggage without taking up much room. It also weighs less than 2 lbs so I don’t have to worry about going over my weight allowance. The only real con to the mat is that it lacks any sort of cushioning. Since I use it in my hotel room on carpeted flooring, this isn’t a big problem. If you’re worried about toting the “dickies” home from your hotel, you’ll be happy to hear that the eKO SuperLite has a closed cell design so it won’t absorb any bacteria.

Audrey and I are in the midst of doing the Little Black Dress fitness challenge, so this mat will certainly come in handy during our trip to Disneyland!
