Rated 5 out of 5 by Fiona29 I just tried this mat today and I love it!! I have been using the original thin purple mat, have tried a few others and never found one that would make me retire my trusty purple mat. Until this one that is!!!
Thickness was awesome and grip was wonderful.
Will use this one from now on!

Rated 5 out of 5 A couple of mm's make all the difference.
At 61, I am reasonably healthy and fit, and up till now have been riding a bike for exercise. This past June I had a crippling bout with vertigo. I was diagnosed with labyrinthitis, a viral inner ear infection. I was told there was nothing to do to treat it and I could expect other episodes. (I had three more.) This was not an option. I had to give up bike riding, because of dizziness. I wondered what to do to solve this problem and thought of yoga. (I'm not the most coordinated person in the world.) I've been practicing this art every day, twice a day, since June 30. It has changed my life. Because I didn't know if I'd continue, I bought the least expensive mat I could find--3 mm--gray. I treated myself to the Gaiam mat once I knew I was "hooked." The 5mm thickness has made all the difference in the world and the design helps me space my feet wide enough and gauge the correct position for standing poses. Besides all that, I love the soothing color. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JC2014 Nice quality and stylish mat
This mat meets my requirements of quality and style. I have a 5mm Gaiam mat from long time ago it still lasts. For a change and convenience I decide to get a new one. As good as I expected. Thanks. I wish there is an option to get a bit longer one. I am not a very tall person. But many times still the mat is a little too short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alora Great yoga mat
My old yoga mat (from Gaiam) is still quite functional, but as I have aged, my knees need more cushion especially on hardwood floors. So, of course I went to Gaiam.com to find a thicker mat. I've used it twice now, and it does indeed cushion my knees making my kundalini yoga sessions perfection once again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yogi1 I just love my new yoga mat. Perfect amount of stickiness to help me stay balanced in my yoga practice! The added thickeness is great on my knees without being overly bulky. I also love the design and color which adds to the calmness and essence of my yoga practice. I did not find any offensive plastic smell in the materials used.
