For a demanding power yoga session like Ashtanga, get some extra comfort and stability with the Gaiam® Premium Sticky Yoga Mat.
I wanted a mat specifically for hot yoga...there are plenty of reviews here saying this is great for it but guess what...that''s just not true. I used the mat about 5 times in class and found I could not fully express myself in posture bc I couldn''t ''t really relax my fingers and toes....about half way through a class I almost slipped a few times...needed to wipe my mat down constantly. My friends sister is a yoga instructor and she recommended Jade so I''m going to go there. I think for a gentle flow/ Pilates/restorative yoga this mat is perfectly fine but I think "sticky" is misleading
Bought for wife who enjoys Yoga.
Thick enough for Pilates (on a hardwood floor) & sticky enough for some sweaty yoga. The mats were packed well & arrived quickly with no problems or fuss.
This mat provides ample coushining. I love it! I do wish it was a bit longer though as I am moderately tall.
This is truly a great Yoga mat. Provides great grip. Highly recommended.
Very disappointed with this mat. Not sticky at all. Still slip when doing certain poses.
Great product and price
i think the service is A+
