Can you take a YOGA Mat on the Plane?

Updated: May 26

Me with my Yoga Mat

Are you a Yoga Enthusiast and want to know if you can take your Yoga mat on the plane?

I am a Yoga Teacher and for ages I have been wondering whether I could take my Mat on the plane and not have to pay for it. 

I searched the World Wide Web, Airline T & C’s and just couldn’t find anything, so here I am serving anyone who has the same question I did :)

Some Yoga Mats are expensive, as some of you may know, and the thought of your Mat being taken away from you is like someone stealing your Baby :P . Maybe a slight exaggeration but you get the drift. 

With getting no answers, I decided to take the plunge and take one of my Yoga mats on the plane. I travelled around Asia in Winter 2023 and I actually brought a Yoga mat in Thailand, which I was able to take on the planes across Asia. 

However as we all know, Europe can be difficult and awkward; often having silly ass rules. 

As I embark on my Ryanair Flight to Cyprus, I take my £7 Yoga mat with me, now I really did need the Mat as I was actually running a Health Retreat, but was willing to buy another out there if I needed. So I surrendered into trust.

Mum and I both with our bags and a Yoga mat each in tow, embarked on this plane ride with flow and ease. 

Returning from Cyprus I flew with Easy Jet, again being able to take my Mat onboard with no issues. I have recently flown with Wizzair and Ryanair a few more times, and this time now ( I am writing this on the plane) I actually brought a Manduka Yoga mat with me…. I know right :P Getting risky haha. 

So can you take a Yoga Mat on the plane without it getting taken away from you? 

From my experience YES, however I do not accept liability for your actions :P 

May our Yogi friends travel with their Mats freely <3 

If you would like to check out my Retreats you can see them here

Much love to you all <3
