Liforme Yoga Mat Review
The Liforme Yoga Mat (Amazon link) is a high end yoga mat. It measures about 73 inches by 27 inches, which is slightly longer and wider than normal, and comes in at fairly normal 4mm thick. So what exactly do you get for the $100+ you pay?
A unique feature of Liforme yoga mats are the alignment lines. These lines help you get proper positioning while you’re practicing. By having proper alignment, you’re able to get the full benefits of your yoga practice because you’ll be able to deepen into each pose confidently. This yoga mat makes it easier to learn yoga on your own because the mat can teach you how to align yourself. It provides you with the opportunity to make your feet and hands equal to each other while practicing, and you can automatically correct yourself if you’re not doing it correctly. The line markers show you exactly how wide you’re supposed to extend your foot, and how far to separate your legs in positions like Warrior I and II.
What else do you get for the price? It’s undisputable that the Liforme yoga mats are very sticky, even under quite wet or sweaty conditions. The grip is top-notch, but you have to clean the mat carefully and take care of it. Otherwise, your very expensive sticky mat will no longer be sticky. The Liforme yoga mat is finicky and has low durability if not cared for properly. We’ve covered this before in our review of expensive yoga mats.
For the environmentally concious, be relieved that LiForMe’s yoga mat uses natural sustainable rubber and is free of harmful phthalates. LiForMe also uses an innovative heating processes which eliminate the need for toxic glues when combining the top and bottom layers of the yoga mat.
