I’m looking for a yoga mat that will have the best grip when sweaty. What are the features I should look for in a yoga mat?

I need to mention that the mat will be a gift for my boyfriend who is sweating like crazy when exercising. I would like to find something that will not make him slip while exercising so he could have a nice, calm practice.

  • Hey Aleksandra, welcome to Fitness.SE. Purchase recommendations are off-topic but I've tried editing your question to ask about the properties of yoga mats, instead.

For the kind of "Yoga" where you are sweating, you often put a "Yoga Towel" on top of the mat. If you look on Amazon, some have keywords like "grip", "sticky", "Non Slip". I think they often have knots or small areas with rubber.

I am not aware of Yoga Mats performing better than others when sweaty, but I can imagine a slightly rough surface does this. (I see some announced as "Sweat-Grip")
