Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 7
Rated 1 out of 5 by soph10 I have had this mat for almost an entire year now and it still has absolutely no grip. I tried to have hope that after using it almost everyday and cleaning it properly that I would "break into it" and finally have a solid grip so that I wouldn't be sliding off my mat in down dog. To this day, it has not got any better. It sure is a beautiful mat, but that does not make up for the awful grip resistance it has. Every time I go to yoga I hurt my palms from trying so hard to keep my hands down away from sliding off. It makes it harder for me to meditate and be present in my practice when I'm constantly slipping and sliding around.. I end up just pressing into the studio floor instead of mat sometimes so I have a better grip. I really tried to have hope that this gorgeous mat would work for me but its been too long and I need to enjoy my yoga practice fully so I finally went out and bought a new mat today that has a much better grip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ty14 This product is better than it's description
I was so excited to get my new yoga mat! The padding is just the right thickness as a standard yoga mat. The new mat smell wasn't even bad considering I didn't let it air out before my first class. It's a very pretty mat. Gets the job done, I'm in love.

Rated 4 out of 5 by zicbug1357 I got this mat for my birthday and I love it. The first few uses were REALLY slippery but after maybe 5 uses it started to loosen up. There are also a few spots where the pattern doesn't line up but its only noticeable very up close. From looking at it as a whole you can't tell. I get many compliments on it in class (:

Rated 2 out of 5 by samm910 Takes some breaking in
The mat was too slippery the first few uses. It wasn't until a hot yoga class (with a towel over it) that I felt like I really broke it in. I chose the design for a good focal point when working on balance, but the harder I stare at it the more I realize the design ins't fully symmetrical and the pattern doesn't line up completely parallel with mat. For some reason that bugs the OCD in me. For $20, it's fine.
