After teaching Pilates for over a decade and trying to find a mat that ticks all the boxes I was looking for and also heard about their struggle, I took matters into my own hands and set about creating the best Pilates mat for every exercise and every body.

Although my criteria are simple, it turned out that it is not easy to create a carpet that is not only of high quality, but also durable, environmentally friendly and free of toxins such as PVC, phthalates and chloride.

You’ve been hearing me say this for years, but there’s a big difference between Pilates mats and yoga mats, and for good reason. Pilates mats should be thicker to sufficiently cushion your spine and joints during rolling exercises (i.e. rolling like a ball, an open leg flip-flop, rolling) and for your bone landmarks during exercises such as afteral leg lifting (think hip bones) or swimming (think pubes). Therefore, while it is important to be grounded as much as possible in Yoga, yoga mats are very thin with very little padding.

Many of you have been asking me for carpet recommendations for years and I have never found the perfect carpet that I could recommend. With the help of my awesome team here at Lindywell, we have created for you the best Pilates mat on the market.

My top 5 criteria for a quality pilates mat:

  • Non-toxic and environmentally friendly
  • Enough support for rolling exercises, but stable enough for balance exercises
  • Easy maintenance
  • Beautiful and something you want to keep curled up in the corner of your room
  • Lightweight and easy to carry

It was not an easy task, my friends. I can see why companies are cutting corners. We had to work hard to find a partner to work with us in order to create a carpet that meets all these criteria, especially since some materials are difficult to find at the moment.

We sorted sample by sample, referring to several customer reviews, testimonials, matter studies and reports to find the best feeling and the balance between support and stability that we could find.

We have undergone many rounds of revisions to ensure that the quality and beauty meet our standards.

I kept an eye on her and her needs every step of the way. I now know why there are such differences in price and quality in carpets on the market (and I understand what this means behind the scenes). To produce responsible, high-quality and environmentally friendly products, the manufacturing costs and obstacles are higher. We’ve done our best to make sure our prices are competitive with other high-end rugs on the market, and we really want this to be a product that will support you (pun intended) for years to come. (And Lindywell members-get 20% off!)

I look forward to showing you the carpet very soon. In the meantime, here is a short behind-the-scenes video that gives an overview of the journey to bring this rug to life.
