Updated: 4/11/2020 | Alternatives to the Liforme Yoga Mat

The Liforme yoga mat quickly became one of the best yoga mats on the market. Instagram yogis and long-time practitioners alike were investing in Liforme yoga mats because of their ability to grip and absorb sweat as you flow.

We reviewed the Liforme yoga mat previously on Schimiggy Reviews and was totally in awe with the performance and quality of the mat. We love the quality, grip, natural rubber construction, eco-friendly qualities and the ability to choose from a variety of widths and colors.

While we do highly recommend Liforme, we realize that it’s a huge investment, especially if you’re not someone who practices yoga regularly or is beginning their practice.

If the $150 USD price tag is too hefty for you, we created a roundup of alternatives to the Liforme yoga mat.

Clever Yoga’s Liquid Balance mat comes in two types: 

Both styles come with carrying cases. I find that the Clever Yoga mat feels and performs EXACTLY like Liforme yoga mats. At this price point, you can’t not give it a try.

#4 lululemon The Mat

lululemon Le Tapis or The Mat Yoga Mat

lululemon makes three types of yoga mat variations and they’re all cheaper than Liforme.

The surface of lululemon’s mat is very grippy and instantly absorbs sweat just like the Liforme mat. The mat has a firmer feel than Liforme. It’s also half the price of a Liforme yoga mat.

You’ll want to air out your lululemon mats. It comes with a strong smell that eventually wears off.

#5 Manduka GRP Mat

Manduka‘s newly released GRP mat (2019) offers lots of grip and is made for sweaty hot yoga. The surface is absorbent and sits on top of the firm base that Manduka PRO and PRO Lite mats are known for.

The mat comes in 6mm ($128) and 4mm ($98) depths and different colors.

#6 ALO Yoga Mat

The ALO Yoga Mat ($100) is similar in construction to lululemon’s mats. It has a porous surface and is made of natural rubber. The only difference is that ALO Yoga only made this mat in black and white, while lululemon offers many different colors.

You can test out the ALO Yoga mat in-stores prior to buying. They stock their yoga classes with the ALO yoga mat. Personally, I love how this mat performs and how easy it is to care for.
