Dat Mat Yoga Mats and Pants


A study conducted by Yoga Journal and Yoga Alliance in 2016 found that over 36 million people in the United States practice yoga—up from 20.4 million in 2012. Those numbers are huge, and confirm that twisting into pretzels has become a truly popular trend (although one with serious, traditional roots). Like most trend-followers—and trend-setters, for that matter—American yogis are always on the lookout for fresh, innovative items to spice up the practice they love. Dat Mat will definitely liven up any yogis day, with its mats and pants covered in illustrations of French bulldogs, sushi, hot-pink flamingos, doughnuts with sprinkles, fat cats and more. Dat Mat calls its accessories "the dopest" around and although they aren't cheap—$49.99 a pop for mats, $79.99 ($54.99 on sale) for pants—successfully folding yourself into ustrasana or holding garudasana while standing on a bunch of smiling sushi is pretty dope.
