How do I choose a Yoga Mat?

I am new to yoga and am studying the various yoga mats out there. There seem to be a wide range of options at different prices.


What are important characteristics to think about in choosing a mat?

Thanks so much!

That its Long enough for you to practice on and does not slip when holding a pose thru sweat also it needs to be durable dont pay a fortune for a mat they should be cheap
