Rated 5 out of 5 by Recommend? Heck, this was a gift!! Since I already own this, I also know that, this is the gift for anyone looking to begin practicing yoga.  Instead of trying to explain, you can just purchase this as a gift and have them "go at it".  They will be so pleased ad love you for your thoughtfulness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by great for the beginner This kit was what I needed to get started with yoga. It was so much easier than looking around for each item individually. The only drawback is that the mat was thinner than I would have liked. My next one will be thicker. It was still a great purchase. June 25, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value for beginner I've used the mat in both regular and hot yoga classes and it performs well.  I have yet to need/use the block, strap or DVD so I can't speak to the quality of those.  2 reasons for 4 stars: #1 - the mat is a bit thin and some poses are more painful on my knees than I would like.  I'm wondering if, as a beginner, I should've gone for a thicker mat and #2 - the mat tends to move around on the floor so I sometimes end up misaligned with the rest of the class which is distracting and annoying.  Perhaps this is partly me not being very fluid in the transitions between poses yet but also could be that the mat doesn't grip on the floor very well either. Overall, for the quality of the mat and everything that comes in the set, it's a very good value for someone who's starting out. April 20, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by This mat took me a week of use to FINALLY enjoy it At first I was really disappointed in the mat included in this kit. I read many of it's reviews and a number of people mentioned how slippery the mat was, I was sad to come to the same conclusion upon the first 2 days of using the mat & I was hoping to be proven wrong. I'm only a couple months into my yoga pratice, but I have about 10 years of pilates practice behind me. This kit fit my price range & I was excited to get a block & strap to better my tecnique & help my practice. { I don't intend on using the DVD, I attend a class & found online classes I love}, but a new basic mat was what I was really looking forward too. I had to do research online on how to properly & gently "break in" my new mat to make it less slippery & the two things that made a difference were 1. Cleaning it down with a gentle vinegar/water solution & 2. Drying in the sun.  After I made those two changes, the mat was everything I needed. I wished the kit came with those very suggestions. As a "beginner kit" I think newbies should be given sound advice in getting the best out of their equipment from the start. I've actually started included inversions  {bound headstands & the crow pose} after I washed & dried it and the mat it was perfect for the job. I'm so glad I didn't have to return this kit, the color is really lovely, the quality is pretty good so far & the ordering/shipping process was painless. I'd recomment this kit, only if you are willing to "break in" your mat first.  September 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great to be able to purchase a kit with the block and straps - including a DVD to show correct utilization of the props! April 9, 2014

Answer: 
3mm is a great basic yoga mat to get you started! If you have sensitive knees you may want to go with the 5mm mat for extra cushion. Otherwise, the 3mm Mat is perfect for a beginner!
