Extra thick for better support and comfort, the Gaiam® Ash Leaves Premium Yoga Mat ensures you have the non-slip surface you need to practice yoga safely and securely.
Great subtle design on one side. The mat is a good thickness and size for me as well, I''m 5''8". I have used it with the yogitoes skidless towel, the towel fits perfectly and sticks great to this mat. I did need to unroll and air it out for a couple days before bringing it into the yoga studio because it had a rather strong chemical smell.
Have looked at many places for a suitable but not too pricy mat for office fitness facility. Very true to thickness, which is thicker than what is offered in most of the shops (0.5cm). Great quality, color and print design.
I LOVE this new mat and want everyone who purchases it to know that you can start using it without having to worry about it being slippery. There is no "break-in" period that many mats require. By that I mean that you don''t have to use it for awhile before you stop slipping on the mat. It is nice and thick, it has no scent to it. The price is great You won''t get a better deal. Thank you Yoga Outlet. Will I buy from you again? ... Yes I will!
I went from a very thin mat to this one and love it. The color is very pretty and the extra thickness feels great during practice. My only complaint is the "new mat smell" was quite strong in the beginning and is still lingering after a few uses.
Very comfortable with extra thickness. Design is attractive. Arrived quickly.
I love the design and the thickness of this yoga mat. I always put 2 thinner mats together for a little extra padding. Some of the thicker mats are too soft and very difficult to balance on. This 5mm mat solves the problem.
I searched for a mat that was thick enough to cushion my hands and feet when in certain positions, yet thin enough to maintain my balance, even in the dancer''s pose. This mat has that perfect thickness. Beautifully crafted and designed. I tend to sprawl a bit, so my only suggestion would be to make it a few inches wider. Relaxing lavender color too!
