Who in here doesn’t have the greatest yoga mats, I have been looking for one. There are so many different mats out there , and what makes this one so much different. Gaiam was created as a lifestyle company with the vision that, given a choice, people would choose a lifestyle that is healthy and life enhancing, for themselves, their families and the Earth. The Gaiam lifestyle is a vote for individual health as well as the future sustainability of the Earth’s resources. Gaiam strives to provide customers with alternatives to traditional products by offering natural, or healthy versions that compare with the style, quality and price of conventional products.
Not only is this one so much thicker it also is a non slip one, meaning your working out and sweating you will not fall and slip. How awesome is that. Thick enough to provide comfort. Durable, definitely long-lasting. It is fairly thick but not very dense and compresses easily which is tough on the knees.
Love the mats and love the yoga towels also.
Towels can be folded or rolled into your carry-on so you’re ready for yoga wherever you land. The surface is a comfortable and slightly sticky blend of microfiber and natural rubber. Layer over your regular mat for yoga practice; absorbs sweat and gives you increased grip. Flip over for a slightly sticky surface that adds instant grip for more challenging poses
There is high quality rubber on the back to prevent it from slipping and it is great for high intensity power classes.Just plop the rubber side down on top of the communal mat, and you’re good to go with your own sanitized layer of moisture. It’s machine washable, and dries fast. I just hang it over the shower curtain rod and it’s dry in a couple of hours
