Yoga mats are much thinner as compare with general purpose fitness mat.
Yes,it is made of rubber,provide a non-slip surface and easy to store.This mat give the yogi (The person who practice yoga.) a sense of the balance while the yogi is doing yoga.

They provide very little cushion because the main function is to provide a stable and non-slip surface for yoga poses.

Because most Pilates exercises are mostly done on the floor ,therefore the mat need to provide more cushion. And they are no need to feel center as with yoga poses.
4.Heavy Duty Exercise Mat.
This kind of mat is used mostly in school, gymnasium as well as some club. That requires the use of gymnastic mat.

They are more costly, bulky and they take up space and they cannot be folded.
And that does not mean you cant use it at home.
If you like a mat that last for a long time. And you exercise at home most of the time.
Here is a mat that I found. It is durable enough and provide more than enough cushion for hard floor. Best of all it is foldable. But it is still bulky.
SPRI Folding / Exercise Mats
This mat does all the things that I stated above.
If you need something long lasting.This is a mat worth checking.
5.Interlocking Puzzle Mat.
This type of exercise mat is good if you have dedicated place for your home gym.

They are easy to clean. But there are not easy to move around because they tend to stay on the floor.

Unless you chose to remove the puzzle mats and assemble it elsewhere.

Besides, that you have to measure the floor area first. Before, you buy it.


6.Mats for exercise equipment.
There is always a risk of exercise equipment damaging the floor.
Or leave a mark on the floor after many years. That is why having a mat underneath the exercise equipment can help protect the floor.

And they aren’t any standard size mat for exercise equipments.
