Your yoga mat is the foundation of your practice. It grounds you in the present moment and supports your movement as you transition from one pose to the next.
The only problem is that you don’t have a dedicated place to store it when your practice comes to an end. Instead, you roll it up and prop it against a wall or lean it in the corner of the room. Not only does your partner/roommate trip over it, but your pets may tear it up with their claws, and it also clutters your space, pulling your attention away from your practice.
So what is the solution?

The Benefits of Having a Dedicated Yoga Mat Storage Solution
Efficient equipment organization is essential for any yogi, especially for those practicing in a place with limited square footage. Smaller spaces like one-bedroom apartments and tiny studios are prone to clutter, which disrupts your environment and distracts from your practice.
Yoga mat storage gives you a dedicated place to put your equipment. It allows you to organize your gear and keep your practice space clean, orderly, and clutter-free. It protects your mat from wear and tear, scratch marks and dirty shoe prints. But, perhaps most importantly, the most effective yoga mat storage inspires you to practice more often.
Types of Yoga Mat Storage
There is a range of yoga mat storage solutions available, and it is essential to pick one that aligns with your storage needs, the design of your space, and your yoga practice goals.
Let’s take a look at some of your yoga storage options!
Yoga Mat Storage Tubes
Finding a yoga mat storage solution that fits in your space is paramount when square footage is at a premium. Your equipment must be organized and accessible, conducive to your practice while maintaining the function and style of the room.
Many people opt for single-mat storage solutions if they’re short on space or only use one mat during their practice. If this resonates with you, consider investing in a yoga mat storage tube like the Homi Yoga Mat Tube. This totally tubular design takes up minimal space without sacrificing function, making it the perfect option if you practice from home or a small studio space. Additionally, these tubes come in various colors and patterns, so you can pick one that matches your style and existing decor.
No longer will you have to worry about any complaints from anyone who is dissatisfied with your clunky yoga mat leaning in a corner, standing out like a sore thumb. With this elegant and simple storage solution, your trusty mat will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your space.
Free-Standing Yoga Mat Storage
A free-standing yoga prop storage solution like the Yoke Floor Stand is an excellent choice for folks with multiple types of yoga equipment they use throughout their practice. This stand fastens to the Homi Tube and stores yoga blocks, books, and straps in one designated place.
You won't have to cram your equipment in a closet after practice or toss it in a bin to gather dust. With this beautiful free-standing solution, you can keep your equipment on the floor next to your media stand or tucked beside your favorite houseplant, ready to go for practice whenever you need it.
Wall-Mounted Yoga Mat Storage
When you are working with a minimal amount of space, and that space serves multiple functions, the last thing you want to do is fill up the floor space with unnecessary items. All that will do is make the environment feel smaller and give you more clutter to trip over.
Enter wall-mounted yoga prop storage.
Another excellent option for Yogis with limited square footage, yoga brackets mount directly to walls and are multi-purpose, capable of accommodating various types of yoga equipment from yoga mat tubes and straps to blocks and books.
Mache’s Yoke Yoga Bracket is available in sleek black or stark white, so you can select the finish that pairs perfectly with your Homi Yoga Mat Tube. Made from cold-rolled steel and finished with a powder coat for durability, this storage solution is ideal for those looking for longevity. With a Yoke Yoga Bracket, you can practice with peace of mind that your storage solution looks great and is built to last.
How to Choose the Right Yoga Mat Storage
From yoga mat tubes, free-standing prop holders, and wall-mounted racks, there is a wide variety of yoga mat storage solutions available on the market, each serving a unique purpose for your practice.
While your choice will ultimately come down to your yoga needs and practice preferences, there are some key elements to keep in mind when you’re making your selection.
