A Better Way to Roll Your Yoga Mat

At the end of their yoga practice, people typically roll their mats by starting at one end and rolling to the other. This can create some annoying issues:

  • Rolling the floor-facing surface directly against the upward-facing practice surface deposits grit and grime directly where you least want it.
  • The initial horizontal crease in the foam gets tightly compressed in the middle of the rolled mat, causing that end to curl and spring back when unrolled, and preventing the mat from lying flat.
  • Wrestling a long mat through a dozen or more small rotations to roll it up fully is tedious — not an ideal way to wind up your peaceful practice.
