Yogasleep, a company with more than 50 years of experience, began with the Marpac Dohm sound machine. The company has since expanded its product line to include diffusers, sleep accessories, bedding, and mattresses. It offers two mattress models: the Yogabed mattress and the Unplug mattress.
The Yogabed mattress, which we focus on in this comprehensive review, has a unique multi-layer foam construction that responds to pressure and isolates motion. The mattress utilizes Instant Response YogaFoam in its comfort system. This proprietary foam blend has a conforming feel like memory foam, but it is more buoyant and breathable. The mattress has a zip-off cover that is easy to clean.
We’ll cover the construction, pricing, and performance of the Yogabed mattress. We’ll also break down verified customer feedback, and make recommendations for sleepers based on sleeping position and body type.
The Yogabed mattress has an all-foam construction with layers of polyfoam and memory foam. The foams allow for even weight distribution and pressure relief. The mattress has a zipper cover.
The Yogabed mattress cover is made of Thermocool high-performance fabric, which incorporates smart fiber cross sections to help regulate temperature. The cover resists allergens, including dust mites. The top of the cover can be removed and machine washed.
Beneath the cover is a one-inch comfort layer of Instant Response YogaFoam that is ventilated to promote airflow. This layer is responsive and cushions pressure points. It also absorbs movement and prevents sleep disturbances for those who share the bed.
The second layer of the Yogabed mattress is two inches of ventilated gel-infused memory foam. The conductive gel in this layer draws heat away from the body. This layer offers deep compression support and prevents sinking into the mattress too deeply.
The support core of the Yogabed mattress includes five inches of YogaCore foam and two inches of support foam. The YogaCore base is more breathable than traditional polyfoam. The support foam increases the durability of the mattress and reinforces the layers above.
The Yogabed mattress has a medium firm (6) rating on the 1-10 firmness scale. It balances the softness of memory foam with firm support. The mattress conforms to the shape of the body to cushion pressure points while keeping the spine aligned. This firmness is beneficial for a range of sleeping positions and body types.
The Yogabed mattress has four layers of foam with a washable cover.
Thermocool high-performance fabric
Memory foam (gel-infused)
The Yogabed mattress is competitively priced. Yogasleep offers the mattress exclusively online, which keeps the price affordable. The mattress is made with high-quality foam. Generally, foam mattresses last six to seven years, and we expect the Yogabed mattress to have an average lifespan.
The Yogabed mattress is available in standard sizes twin through California king. Customers can choose to purchase the Yogabed mattress with two Yogasleep pillows, which adds $50 to the purchase price.

Motion isolation is a standout quality of the Yogabed mattress and foam mattresses in general. The all-foam construction of the Yogabed mattress includes responsive polyfoam and memory foam.
The memory foam in the comfort system absorbs movement easily and prevents it from transferring across the bed. This is beneficial for those who share the bed. Couples should not feel their partner change positions throughout the night.
Larger movements, like getting in and out of the bed, may be felt to a certain extent. This is due to the resilient polyfoam in the top layer and the medium firm rating. These contribute to ease of movement, but do not isolate movement as well as memory foam does.
The foam comfort system of the Yogabed mattress conforms to the shape of the body. These layers relieve pressure on the shoulders, back, and hips.
The top layer is a responsive polyfoam that relieves pressure for most. The second layer of memory foam provides deep compression support. It cushions areas that press into the mattress and prevents pressure points from developing. The support layers below keep sleepers from sinking into the mattress.
Since the Yogabed mattress is medium firm, it offers less pressure relief for side sleepers. People who sleep on their side typically benefit from a softer foam mattress, especially if they weigh less than 130 pounds.
Foam has a tendency to retain heat, so it is common for all-foam mattresses to have a lower rating in this category. This is true for the Yogabed mattress. Foam conforms closely to the body, responding to heat and pressure. This can restrict airflow and lead to sleeping hot. However, the Yogabed mattress is constructed to offset heat retention to a certain extent.
The cover of the Yogabed mattress incorporates Thermocool fibers, which help regulate temperature. The comfort layers of foam are ventilated so that air can circulate throughout the top of the mattress and dissipate heat. The memory foam layer is infused with gel, a highly conductive material that draws heat away from the body. These factors give the Yogabed mattress more of a temperature neutral feel.
While the Yogabed mattress may retain less heat than some memory foam mattresses, it may not be the best choice for hot sleepers.
The Yogabed mattress has an all-foam construction with a ten-inch profile. The mattress lacks a reinforced perimeter, and the foam comfort layers compress easily. Most foam mattresses lack edge support, and we consider the Yogabed mattress to be average in this category.
The medium firm rating and foam support core of the mattress help sleepers feel supported even when sleeping near the edge of the bed. Those who weigh less than 230 pounds find that they can comfortably sleep near the edge without feeling like they may roll off the bed. Those who weigh more than 230 pounds may feel less supported.
The lack of edge support is most noticeable when sitting on the edge of the bed. This is not ideal for those who need a supportive edge for getting in and out of bed. The foam sinks in near the edges and could sag over time.
Foam can inhibit movement, and the Yogabed mattress has an all-foam construction that responds to pressure. The Instant Response YogaFoam and memory foam in the comfort system conform to the shape of the body.
These foam layers return to their original shape faster than softer memory foam would, but still have minimal bounce. Sleepers who weigh more than 130 pounds will sink more deeply into the mattress and may feel restricted when changing positions.
Those who prioritize ease of movement, namely combination sleepers and couples, may benefit more from a latex or hybrid mattress.
The Yogabed mattress does not have much bounce, so some may find it more difficult to change positions during sex. This is a common drawback to foam mattresses, as the foam responds to pressure and returns to its original shape slowly.
The Instant Response YogaFoam is more resilient than traditional memory foam, but there is still memory foam in the second layer of the mattress. While memory foam can provide traction, it can also inhibit movement.
Additionally, the Yogabed mattress does not have as much edge support as a hybrid mattress would. As a result, couples may not feel comfortable using the entire surface area of the mattress.
One benefit of the Yogabed mattress is that it is completely silent when bearing weight. This makes it discreet during intimate activity.
There is an initial odor when the Yogabed mattress is unboxed. This is to be expected for any foam mattress, especially when it is compressed and vacuum-sealed.
Off-gassing is caused by a release of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This is most noticeable when the mattress is new. The Yogabed mattress is CertiPUR-US certified and low in VOCs.
The initial smell of the Yogabed mattress should dissipate within 24 to 48 hours. Keeping the room well-ventilated will help.
Side Sleepers: Side sleepers need a mattress that cushions the shoulders and hips. This reduces the likelihood of pressure points developing. It also keeps the spine aligned. The Yogabed mattress has a medium firm rating, which makes it less than ideal for most side sleepers.
Most side sleepers who weigh less than 230 pounds will experience great conforming on the Yogabed mattress, but there is still a chance pressure could build at the shoulders and hips. Sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds especially tend to need a softer mattress in order to experience a conforming feel and pressure relief
Those who weigh more than 230 pounds may find they sink into the mattress too deeply. This prevents the spine from being properly aligned. Many sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds prefer a firm mattress.
Back Sleepers: Back sleepers maintain a neutral posture as they sleep, but benefit from a conforming mattress. This fills the gap beneath their lower back and supports the lumbar region. The Yogabed mattress is best for back sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds. The mattress conforms enough to support the lower back and keep the spine aligned. The supportive foam core prevents sinking in too deeply.
Those who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds will likely benefit from the conforming comfort system of the Yogabed. The medium firm rating and responsive foam layers provide fair support for back sleepers in this weight category.
Back sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds may need more support than the Yogabed provides. There is the possibility that they will sink into the mattress too deeply, which can lead to spinal misalignment.
Stomach Sleepers: Stomach sleepers need a mattress that is firm enough to keep their hips from sinking in. This reduces pressure on the lower back and keeps the spine aligned. The Yogabed mattress is beneficial for stomach sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds. The responsive foam cushions the chest and shoulders while supporting the hips.
The Yogabed mattress offers fair support for stomach sleepers who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds. There is the possibility of the hips pressing in too much, but the mattress offers comfort for the shoulders and chest.
Stomach sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds will also find the Yogabed mattress offers fair support. Most prefer a firm mattress instead, as this keeps the hips and abdomen lifted.

The majority of Marpac Yogabed reviews are positive, with plenty of four- and five-star ratings. Several reviews mention improved sleep quality and feeling more rested in the morning. The foam hugs the body and cushions pressure points. Purchasers praise the mattress for its quality construction and affordable price point, making it a valuable investment.
The cover of the mattress is easy to clean, and reviewers appreciate that it zips on and off. Some customers note that the mattress has a temperature neutral feel that prevents sleeping hot. Positive reviews also mention that the mattress arrived quickly and was easy to set up.
Lower ratings of the Yogabed mattress mention that the mattress was not the right firmness for them. Side sleepers found it too firm, while some back and stomach sleepers found it to be too soft. Several reviews mention the initial odor of the mattress, though any off-gassing dissipated within a few days. Some hot sleepers found that the mattress retained heat. Purchasers who interacted with Yogasleep customer service note a positive experience, even if they were initiating a return.
