Some yoga mats come with a yoga mat bag, but some don't. But never fear, you can buy a yoga mat bag separately from the mat itself.
A yoga mat bag is not only useful for carrying your mat to and from classes, but a bag keeps the mat clean and protected between classes when it is sitting at home in your closet.
Because yoga mats are a fairly standard size, your mat bag doesn't have to be the same brand as your mat, and you can find yoga mat bags to accommodate your personal taste as well as your mat. Most yoga equipment makers offer bags in a variety colors made of nylon or cloth. The eco-conscious yogi practitioner can buy a yoga mat bag made of hemp canvas, but a hemp bag costs about three times as much as a nylon or cloth bag.
