Top Yoga mat carrying bags

If you have ever traveled or had to carry a yoga mat from place to place, you have probably experienced the frustration lugging a yoga mat around that insists on unrolling at the worst possible times!

If you ask me, I think EVERYONE that has a yoga mat, should have a yoga mat bag.

Even if you only practice yoga at home, at the very least a yoga mat bag will protect your mat and keep it clean.

If you travel often, have to commute to a yoga class, or just like to practice yoga outdoors, a yoga mat bag is essential!

Just like choosing the right yoga mat, choosing the right yoga mat bag can be tough!

After all, there are soooooo many options! Not just design options but also functional features that you might not be sure you need.

Many mat bags are just big enough to carry a mat but others have room for other yoga accessories.

Choosing the right yoga bag depends on your budget, taste, and practice.

Well, regardless of your budget, here are some of the best yoga mat bags to help you and your yoga mat get from A to B without losing your calm!
