How To Fold Your Yoga Mat

One of the best advantages of Packmat is its dimensions and the fact that it is easy to carry and travel around with.

Our yoga mats are extra large, made purposefully for those who like to have space and the freedom to move around without limitations during their yoga practice.

The dimensions of  the Packmat yoga mat are 1850mm x 680mm and 2mm thickness.

The thickness of Packmat is minimal, providing the best support for balancing postures and also allowing you to fold your mat with ease.

Done are the days of carrying around a big heavy tube under your arm! 

Our yoga mats are easily foldable and light, weighing only 1.8kg and fit perfectly into their custom zip up pouch, each equipped with a little carry handle making them the most convenient travel yoga mats on the market.

Easy to fold... here's how:


Firstly, make sure that you clean your mat after your practice, especially if you've been sweating a lot.

Once the mat is fully dry, find a clean and flat surface to lay your mat on.

Turn the mat upside down so the black side is facing up and the suede top is facing down.

Then fold one of the long sides of the mat in towards 2/3 of the width of the mat as depicted belowhow to fold a yoga mat


Fold the other long side of the mat over the first side, ending up with a third of the width of the mat, as shown on the picture below

Next, fold the length of the mat in two

Finally, fold the half length of the mat into 3 parts as shown in the pictures below:

And there you go! Just remember to fold in thirds, then in half and then thirds again. Or you can remember to fold twice, then once, then twice again. Whatever is easiest for you.

The mat should now fit perfectly into its custom pouch. Sometimes the folding brings a lot of air in between the folds.

In that case just squeeze out the air to keep the mat a little flatter so that it fits into your pouch easier.

I hope you enjoy the convenience and comfort of practicing with Packmat.
