The Best Grippy, Non-Slip Yoga Mats On the Market

Nobody wants a Slip’N Slide on the yoga mat. Some mats offer more traction and grip while others a bit more on the slippery side. No matter what discipline of yoga you practice, it’s important to have a non-slip yoga mat to keep your time on the mat safe and distraction free.
That’s why we handpicked, tested, and rated 14 of the best non-slip yoga mats on the market for all your different yoga and workout needs.
We rated each mat on the style of practice it is best used for so that you can, literally, get a grip in your practice and focus on your breath and alignment rather than the slip factor of your mat.
