” If you’re in the market for a thicc mat, consider this 6.5-mm cork design. It offers plenty of a padding, and the material is naturally antimicrobial, making it ideal for park workouts. Cork is also super-absorbent (bring it on, Bikram) and gets even grippier over time.”- Glamour

Elite Daily called our mat the best cork mat overall.

“A great choice for everyone from beginners to professionals, this thick yoga mat is made from premium Portuguese cork with a natural rubber base layer. The extra-thick design measures 6.5 millimeters, which provides ample padding for everything from child’s pose to headstands, and the longer length provides over 6.5 feet of space for stretches and shavasana.”- Elite Daily

“What makes this mat stand out from the rest is the fact that it is made from Portuguese cork. You may have heard of cork mat sin the past, but Body By Yoga has upped the ante.” – Gear We Are

“Cork is one of the best choices for a non-slip yoga mat — it never gets greasy and is unrivaled in its grip — even during a Bikram session where you’re completely soaked. Still, tough as it is, it has a luxuriously soft surface. Another perk of the environmentally-friendly material is that it’s suitable for sensitive skin and never curls up, unlike rubber and other materials. This extra-thick Body By Yoga cork mat has built-on pose alignment lines and is suitable for tall yogis.” – Spy

“First, Body By Yoga’s mats are made with Portuguese cork and come packed with cushioned support so that you not only feel stable while in your poses but aren’t hurting your knees and elbows while doing so. Next, the look and feel of these mats really stand out. We love that you can essentially keep these out in plain sight in the house and they’ll go nicely with any type of décor.” – JustLuxe

I like to have room to move around and this mat definitely provides that. It’s 80”x26” which means you’ll have to reposition a lot less as you move from pose to pose. The cushion is also fantastic. It’s 6.5mm thick which is ideal for those who practice on tile or hardwood floors. If you have joint pain then this would also be a good choice. Furthermore, the thickness isn’t so much that it affects your balance.” – Yoga With Landon

“The mat has approximately six times more cork than an average cork yoga mat making it as supportive as it is comfortable. Speaking of comfort, Body By Yoga’s mats are some of the larger mats on the market (80-by-26 inches) so you have plenty of room to flow during your practice.” – Oola

“Does your sensitive skin break out with the slightest provocation? As a natural material, cork triggers fewer allergic reactions. It’s also naturally sweat-resistant. This model is also longer, wider, and thicker than most cork mats.” – Greatist

“Body By Yoga’s Luxury Cork Mat was created by yoga instructors based on feedback from their own students. Between its premium Portuguese cork and ample cushioning, this upscale mat lives up to its name. Not only does this eco yoga mat feature a non-toxic rubber base, it’s also at least partially manufactured using recycled materials. If this mat looks thicker than your average cork mat, that’s because it’s made with six times the average amount of cork. Instead of bringing another minimally padded mat to the market, the instructors created a mat with plenty of cushioning and support for a variety of yoga moves.” – Heavy

Please consult your physician, assess your fitness level, and follow all safety instructions before beginning any exercise program, nutrition plan, and/or using any equipment.

Body By Yoga provides a variety of exercise programs, some of which are physically demanding and high-intensity in nature. For this reason, you must listen to your body, use common sense, take breaks, and hydrate as needed to avoid injury. If at any time you feel any discomfort, pain, dizziness, light-headedness, shortness of breath, or nausea, stop exercising immediately and consult your physician. Incorrect or excessive training can result in serious injury or death.

When doing any outdoor workouts or activities, be aware of your surroundings and avoid anything that could hurt you or disrupt your exercise, especially when walking or running in public areas such as sidewalks and streets.

If you have any unique or special medical conditions, such as if you’re pregnant, have diabetes or asthma, or if you have a history of knee, ankle, hip, shoulder or spinal (back or neck) problems, you must consult your physician to understand all potential risks and complications of using our exercise programs, nutrition plans, and/or equipment, and receive approval from them to proceed before beginning. Failure to do so could result in significant injury to you and others (including, if applicable, your unborn child). By engaging in any exercise program, nutrition plan, and/or using any equipment, you assume all dangers, hazards and risks of injury or death.



Certain programs may utilize equipment, such as yoga mats, yoga blocks, yoga straps, chairs, foam rollers, and other equipment which, if not used correctly, could lead to serious injury or death. Carefully review all safety, care and use instructions and manuals prior to beginning.

For your safety, you must:

Use any equipment shown in the workouts only as demonstrated, using proper form.
Inspect any equipment for wear or damage prior to each use and refrain from using any equipment that appears damaged, worn or defective.
Keep children, pets and any other obstacles away from equipment and exercise area at all times.
Always use a secure, proper, and stable anchor for any equipment that requires hanging or attaching.
Always exercise caution during use of any equipment to make sure you do not lose your grip or control, such as making sure your hands are not wet or sweaty.
Ensure exercise bands are firmly secure and assembled to prevent slipping, snapping, recoiling and injury to yourself or anyone else.
Ensure your workout bench and pull up bar is stable, strong enough to hold your weight and does not move during use. If you do not think you can safely perform exercises with your bench or pull up bar, or you do not have the proper equipment, you should do the modifier exercises instead.
