Can you do more with yoga mats other than just yoga? Is yoga considered an exercise to help lose weight?

Yes, yoga is good for your mind and body. It helps build lean muscle when practiced 3 or more times a week, helps relieve stress, and gives you relaxation and breathing techniques to use in your daily life. If you're not sure about whether or not you're ready to buy an expensive mat, I would recommend getting one @ Walmart (they sell them for as low as $5). When and if you are ready for a good quality mat that will last forever, check out Manduka. I've had a pro for years and it is the best.

I use yoga mats for floor exercises in pilates and fitness and I use it when i go camping or hiking, too. And yoga, in fact is a really good way to lose weight thank to the breathing technique you learn.

Yoga helps control your breathing. It helps you learn how to control and learn your own body. It helped me feel confident in my body. It also definitely gives you strength. After 2 weeks I was already getting muscles from it. Idk if that helps any.

You can certainly use it for other physical activities such ad push ups, crunches etc. i've even taken them to music festivals before for extra cushion under my bed. Depending on the type of yoga it can lead to weight loss. It certainly offers strength training tho.
