I use it every day: I really like this mat. I had knee surgery this year, and the cushioning means a lot to me. I also like having a little extra length on my mat. It's quite heavy - almost 10lbs. It grips the mat well but is slippery up top. Probably will be better with moisture. I bought this mat a month ago and it is amazing. I am proud that I made the right choice by buying the mat.
Mat has just the right amount of cushion to support more difficult yoga poses but stable enough to move without worry.
I bought this mat as a fairly new student, on recommendation of my Hatha teacher. She told me her last eKo mat had lasted through 9 years of daily use. This was music to my ears, as I'd worn out my first cheap mat in about 2 months. I practice 3 to 5 days a week. My eKo has held up awesome for over 2 years now. I live in Texas and store it in the trunk of my car. I will never buy a different mat, so long as they keep making eKo.
It's cushy, smooth, yet grips well, preventing slippage. Definitely worth the money. By the way, you can help get rid of that recycled tire smell by hanging it outside in the sunshine a while. It dries surprisingly fast. I am thrilled with my Valor yoga towel. I absolutely love the way it feels and I am not sliding around on my mat anymore. The color and design is stunning and only helps with having a positive vibe and energy when I am using it. Size is perfect for face and hands.
It was too dark grey for me. Unfortunately, had to return. The yogatoe towel wont move around on you. That is good but it means i cant get sloppy on downward dog to high lunge.
Still need to wet down where my hands and feet align on towel to stop from sliding. This makes hot yoga less slippery, I can even wear shorts again.
I sit on it in the car after class too so I won't get the seat sweaty. I love the title "Clarity in Chaos" and the design fits that completely. Sign me up for Zappos Rewards! I agree to the terms and conditions. Gift cards and e-Gift cards sold on Zappos. Manduka View All Brands.
Designed to go with. Rated 5 out of 5 by msegloff from Love the new mat I bought this mat for my husband. He is loving it and practicing regularly. Rated 5 out of 5 by LauraKristin from Worth the investment! I bought my pro a month ago and I love it! I do not have to readjust constantly because my towel and mat are bunching up under me. I feel like I was driving an old jalopy and now I am in a luxury automobile. It is such a pleasure to use.
My mat hugs the ground and lies flat and it has just the right amount of grip and cushion. It was worth the investment. Perfect for practicing on hardwood floors like I do as it provides extra cushion.
It is heavy to carry around, but I still take it everywhere. The downside is that shipping is now rather expensive to Hawaii when it used to be free with minimum amount of purchase. Rated 5 out of 5 by Angie from Amazing Exactly what I needed! The curved blocks are a must have! Rated 5 out of 5 by astriddddd from Like clouds Feels great on the wrists and knees.
Any other mat I've tried I have had to put something extra under my needs in any sort of table top position, which is annoying and breaks the flow. This mat is nice and thick, but it doesn't making balancing any different which is great. Rated 5 out of 5 by Wes24 from Great investment!
So far, so good. Great investment to better my yoga practice Date published: Great all around yoga mat!
