Yoga Mats: Part 2: features

 There are a number of factors involved in selecting a yoga mat. The first is price. You can spend anything from about 20 dollars (actually I have seen economy mats where you can get to under 10 dollars a mat if you are buying a minimum number of mats) to over 100 dollars.
