All yoga mats are not created equal. Sure, they all provide a little extra cushion, lessen the impact of hard floors on knees, palms and other sensitive body parts. But there's nothing more frustrating than a slick mat when you're trying to hold grip-intensive asanas. So get this professional mat with no-slip ridges and never slide out of your downward dog again.
This mat is 3/8" (8mm) thick, right at the sweet spot. Providing more cushion than 1/4" mats, but more compact and easily transported than bulky 1/2" (or thicker!) mats, if you're a yogi on the go looking for a quality, no-hassle mat, look no further. It's the standard 72" long, 24" high-density foam mat, but the real difference is its low profile and remarkably light weight when rolled up in its included shoulder sling. Not only does this mat roll up thinner, but it's a remarkably light 1.5 pounds, which means carrying it is near effortless.
Grippy and skidless, easy to clean and durable, lightweight and portable--that's the professional advantage.
