Thick yoga mat

Any idea where I can get one in Ireland?
Most are too thin and too flimsy.
Thanks all.

You could just use 2 yoga mats together - I see quite a few people doing this.

If that doesn't suit your needs, then most Yoga Studios sell mats - best to ring around as one persons thin is another persons thick
If you want to go thicker again then look at Pilates mats, as these tend to be quite a lot thicker...these mats might stretch though and may not work for yoga, not sure on this

Some other options here https://www.mad-hq.com/thick-or-wide-yoga-mats but I doubt it will be cost effective to ship a single mat from them.

These guys as well https://www.mcsport.ie/c/yoga-_-pilates/9

Your username is so apt
I thought about 2 mats together but they'd bunch up.
Thank you for your other suggestions, I will look into these.

I got a pretty thick mat in TK Maxx. Worth a look.

Would a camping mat that goes under a sleeping bag be suitable they are about 10-12mm?

I use two mats together, never had them bunch up in Bikram, Ashtanga or any other yoga.

But how about this? https://www.amazon.co.uk/UMI-Blue-Pi...dDbGljaz10cnVl
