4 Wholesale Yoga Mat Options + Buying Tips

bunch of mats

Wholesale yoga mats can be quite a bargain. Any yoga instructor who teaches 10 or more students will provide great service by having additional yoga mats on hand. A wholesale purchase helps you keep your operating costs low.

What to Look for in a Mat

Often, the type of mat used for practice depends not only on the individual, but the style of yoga. Someone who enjoys the vigorous practice of Ashtanga Yoga might need a durable, absorbent mat. A yogi with knee or wrist issues may choose a mat with greater thickness for extra cushioning. Another person may want some versatility, making a combination rubber/fabric mat a good option.

For wholesale yoga mat purchases, opt for longer length mats. That way, you'll always have the right size for any practitioner. No yogi has ever complained about having too much mat! Also, make sure the mats are easy to clean and quick to dry.

Wholesale Yoga Mats Online

The Internet is a terrific resource for finding wholesale yoga mats. The average price range for a single mat is $15-$100. Many wholesalers offer mat purchases in bulk; for example, $13 apiece for an order of six mats. So, it's important to shop around and strike up a relationship with suppliers. After all, you'll probably need blocks and straps and other yoga equipment, too.
