Rated 5 out of 5 by jannasocrazy Best padded mat
I have not seen a mat with this much cushion anywhere else. As soon as I opened it from the box, I knew this mat was different than the others. You can see the thickness without touching it. I need the extra padding as it's hard to put weight on my knee or knees for floor exercises. This mat stays put and I don't slide when stretching or doing yoga poses. Now I can do floor exercises without pain and discomfort in my knees or my back. It's a great mat: sticky, padded and doesn't move while exercising.

This premium mat solves the ache and hurt of aging knees -- and the rest of the body, too! I'm spoiled forever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mojisha Love it!
This was a great purchase! I was using a much thinner mat before and I've really noticed the difference when I practice on this thicker mat. Even with shipping, the price was so much lower than what I was finding around the city. I love the Robin's Egg color and, best of all, there was not the harsh smell that some other new mat's have. I have already recommended this mat to other's in my yoga studio; it really stands up to my Bikram practice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shmars Not very sticky
Generally disappointed in this mat. I was looking for a cushioned mat that is sticky and contrary to it's name, it really isn't. I take regular Asana and Vinyasa classes (not bikram) and had trouble with slipping with both my hands and feet the first time I used it. There is something about the mat that has a slickness to it. I wanted a mat I didn't have to use a towel with. This is not it. It got slightly better after spraying it with a vinegar and water solution, but not enough to fix this problem. The cushion is nice but I regret this purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kelly39 Not Sticky
I ordered this Premium Sticky Yoga Mat - actually 3 (one for myself and 2 for my daughters who are both new to yoga). Our hands slide on the mat which makes it difficult to hold poses. I've used a thinner Gaiam mat which I purchased from Target over a year ago. It had a great stickiness to it but was time for a replacement. I do like to thicker mat however it is not sticky. I would not recommend this product for yoga practice (fine for floor exercises). Will continue to search for a sticky mat. P.S. Did try the mild dish soap wash mentioned in previous post and it did not help. Can you recommend a thicker mat that is sticky........anyone? Thanks!
