What is a Liforme Yoga Mat?
Liforme mats were designed so that you can properly align yourself in yoga poses. The lines printed on the mat have been specially placed to guide you to evenly and correctly during asana.
It is such an innovative idea that Liforme has seen a lot of attention by the press. They have been featured in countless magazines, including Vogue, Glamour, Health and Fitness Magazine, Om Yoga, and Yoga Journal. Everyone loves this mat!

Why is it a good option?
Properly alignment is crucial during a yoga practice. If you have poor alignment you are putting yourself at a huge risk for injury. Injuries from poor alignment can happen suddenly from a fall or over time from constantly putting uneven stress on your muscles or joints.
As a yoga teacher, I can say that a good majority of yoga students have poor alignment. The nice thing that this mat is that not only can the student more easily place themselves, but teachers can spot misalignment much quicker and help guide the student to proper alignment.
Not only is this mat amazing for alignment, but it is also extremely sticky. I do not slip or slide on this mat at all. Which makes it a great choice for people who have sweaty hands and feet like myself.

Where to Find a Liforme Yoga Mat
You can purchase Liforme on their site for $149.95 ($140+$9.95 shipping and receive your mat in 3-7 business days. You can also buy on Amazon for $150 and receive your mat in 1-2 days with free shipping (if you are a Prime Member).
Can’t spend that kind of money? Amazon has some “copycats” that are much cheaper. I can’t speak to their quality or stickiness, but they do have good reviews!
I recently wrote the post The Stickiest Yoga Mat: Yoga Teacher Recommended. The Liforme mat was one of the mats that I highlighted. There are two other mats that I recommend in this post as well. You’ll want to check it out if you are on the hunt for a mat.
I hope you find your perfect yoga mat!
