Yoga and Pilates Mats

When taking a yoga or Pilates class, you might notice that the mats look similar. You can use the same mat in both types of classes, but there are some differences to consider based on your comfort level and needs. Mat thickness and texture make a difference when it comes to balance poses in yoga, whereas padding is more important in Pilates when you're rolling, lying on your side and putting more pressure on bony spots such as your spine.


In yoga, a standard sticky mat is typically 1/8- to 1/4-inch thick. A thin mat on a solid surface allows you to maintain a firm foundation and gives you stability in standing balance poses. While thicker mats can be used in yoga, you'll find it more difficult to maintain your balance if the mat has too much cushion or give to it.


In Pilates, you'll want a thicker mat that provides more cushioning and padding for rolling floor work and side-lying work -- these mats are typically 1/4- to 1/2-inch thick. Thinner mats, such as those used in yoga, can still be used in Pilates, but they are not as comfortable.
