If you're a larger than life kind of person, chances are you will need a high quality plus size yoga mat to cater to the extra body weight. If you buy a yoga mat that is too spongy or too thin, chances are you will not find it comfortable to perform yoga poses on.
Most plus-size people prefer their mats to be a little thicker than a regular mat, ideally between 1/4" to 3/4" depending on how heavy you are.
With this Amity Plus plus size mat, you get a supportive 0.59" thickness (15mm), which makes it one of the thickest yoga mats on the market. A valuable solution for the heavy person trying to find comfort while performing yoga.
At over 1/2 an inch in thickness, you can rest assured knowing that your body weight won't be too much for this mat. It has the thickness and durability to cater to plus-size yoga enthusiasts.
When it comes to choosing a yoga mat one of the more important factors to consider is moisture resistance. This is because, on those hot summer days, you can build up a sweat just thinking about performing poses.
Sweating on your yoga mat not only makes it smell bad, but it also creates a potentially dangerous environment. Bacteria is prone to thrive in a sweaty yoga mat.
With this Amity Plus yoga mat, you don't need to worry about spoiling the material as a result of sweating, this is because it is made from NBR foam.
The main advantage this mat has for the plus-size person, other than being extra thick is that it is made from high-quality Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR). This is a closed-cell material meaning moisture/sweat can't penetrate into the mat allowing bacteria to thrive.
Cleaning sweat off is as easy as wiping it away with a sponge or antibacterial wipe. In terms of working out on an NBR mat like this one, the main benefit is that due to the thermal resistance and closed-cell technology, the mat is rather supportive, yet soft on your skin.
So you get the support a bigger person needs from the NBR foam, the extra thickness to counter-balance extra body weight, and the ability to easily clean the yoga mat.
