If you're actively attending yoga retreats all around the world, you know that the standard roll up yoga mat is simply not practical for travel. I love these fold out yoga mats because they fit neatly into your luggage or even into your purse or carry on.

One thing to note is that travel yoga mats tend to be less thick as compared to standard yoga mats so you might have to use a towel with your mat. This is never a problem since I can always grab a towel from my hotel room.

​I've already shared my favorite fleece lined leggings, perfect for yoga in colder weather environments,  yoga shorts, favorite meditation benches and chairs. Read on below for my top 10 favorite foldable yoga mats for travel!

THE BEST FOLDABLE YOGA MATS FOR TRAVEL

Manduka - eKO Superlight Travel Yoga & Pilates Mat

24" x 68" unfolded

10" x 12"

2.22 pounds

1.5 mm thick

Manduka's eKO Superlight Travel Yoga mat is made from biodegradable Tree rubber and is 99% latex free. The mat is made entirely from post industrial scrap so that the whole production process is waste free. It's our #1 pick as the best travel yoga mat because its the most durable natural rubber yoga mat available. Its ideal for travel, folds up nicely and you could easily stick it into your purse if needed.

The surface grips exceptionally, even if you sweat.  The mat resists damage and bacteria with its tightly woven scrim and closed cell design. This line of mats is Manduka's eKO line which is eco-friendly. Its approximately 1.5mm thick, weighs 2.22 pounds and measures 68 inches by 24 inches.

I love this mat because it is gripper than your average yoga mat. As the material is made out of rubber, it has a distinct smell when you take it out of the packaging. Just follow the included instructions and air that baby out.  Ultimately it's my favorite foldable yoga mat for travel!​

Khataland - YoFoMat - Best Travel Yoga Mat

24" x 68" unfolded

12" x 10" x 3" folded

2 pounds

Khataland's YoFoMat is exact long, coming in at 72 inches. It features folding lines throughout and is super easy to transport. The material is high density and the material is non-skid and grippy. It also comes with a cute little travel case and a yoga pose chart.

This is a popular yoga mat that has been featured in REAL SIMPLE. The Today Show and many other yoga magazines. The mat is patented and measures 12" x 10" x 3" when folded, about the size of a thick book. If you have more than one Khataland mat, you can easily stack the mats and store them. The touch-felt folding lines all the length of the mat help with your body alignment.

You can easily clean this mat using a damp cloth with water and a cleaning agent. Just allow it to air dry. The mat weighs about 2 lbs. This is great mat that lats flat and doesn't do that annoying curl up that rolled up yoga mats do. Love the Khataland line of yoga mats!

24" x 68" unfolded

12" folded

I just love the look of YOGO's Ultralight yoga mat and the fact that it comes with straps and a handle. When all rolled up it measures no more than 12 inches and weighs just a hair over 2.5 pounds. You can toss it into your backpack or carryon easily.

The straps also make it convenient for you to hang the mat for drying after washing. This mat features a high performance rubber made of natural materials. Most importantly one tree is planted in Africa every time a mat is purchased! I love that the map folds up to the size of a newspaper. When unfolded it measures 24" x 68".

The mat material is award winning and is super sticky so you don't have to worry about slipping around while practicing your poses. The mat's thickness is 1/16", This mat is the new and improved 2.0 version, the previous model did not feature handles.

This mat is super easy to clean and because of the creases and its folded design, the used side of your mat never touches the unsues, clean side.
