Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 54 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tool for beginners I purchased this kit 2 weeks ago.  The DVD instruction is helpful.  I've been doing yoga daily since my purchase.  Wonderful tool for people beginning and not able to attend a class regularly. May 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 Nice, comprehensive beginner's kit This kit is great- it has all you need to hit the ground running as a beginner yogi! And the turquoise color is pretty too! The only think I don't like is that the buckle on the strap is metal (some are plastic) and so when the metal hits the ground or another object it is louder and harder than if the buckle were plastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this beginner's kit! I've been wanting to get back into yoga ever since I took a class at school. I figured that I'd get a beginner's kit, since I thought I may be a little bit rusty. I love every item in the kit - especially the mat (of course)! The DVD is also very helpful for beginners, even though I didn't really need the prop intro. Many of the reviewers complained about the daily yoga stretch being too fast, but I always make it a point to watch a workout DVD BEFORE I use it in a workout, so that I know what to expect. Anyway, love it love it love it! August 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Must for beginners I have absolutely no experience with yoga and on suggestion from a friend came to Gaiam. This kit has everything you need to begin your path to wellness. The block and strap are almost essential for a first timer, they helped me understand the stability of each pose. One of the Dvd's shows you how to use them and WHY. Important for some. Very helpful for first timers. Rodney Yee has a very calming and clear voice. His instruction is simple and concise. For those beginning or those unable to find good beginner classes near by, this is an excellent start kit. The price can NOT be beat. December 29, 2009
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

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!
