Basic buying guidelines: If you’re allergic to latex, avoid yoga mats made of natural rubber. If you want to stick with the tried and true sticky mat, choose a yoga mat made out of TPE, which can endure your use and abuse for more than a decade.

Beyond these fundamentals, read on and let your other priorities — texture, stickiness, and eco-friendliness — be your guides of yoga mat.
