  8. Is it easy to carry?

1. Is it supportive?

Yes!

These professional mats are extra long and thick compared to standard mats. So, if you’re tall (or tend to move around a lot) this mat is perfect.

The base is thickly lined, and won’t slide around on the floor.

Mat size: 72" x 24" x 5mm thickness

2. Does it feel good?

Yes!

The texture of these mats are surreal. On first impression, it’s shocking how soft the microfiber surface is to touch. Caution - you might start to snuggling with your mat in class!

3. Is it sweat-proof?

Yes!

There’s no need to line these mats with a towel because your grip actually improves as you sweat.

The no-slip, ultra-absorbent surface is engineered to maximize traction, whether you’re practicing slow and steady or jamming with hot yoga.

4. Is it easy to clean?

Yes!

You might imagine my horror when I spilled a post-yoga smoothie all over my mat.

My brain yelled at me:

No!!! I’ll never get that out!

Surprisingly, simply wiping the mat down with a damp cloth and mild soap totally cleaned the mess. Not a stain was left!

7. Does it smell?

No!

Fresh from the package, the mat smelled minimally of the plastic liner. This smell went away within a couple of hours of being opened.

With long-term use, the mat stays fresh. You won’t hesitate to rest your face on this non-stinky (and very soft) yoga mat!

8. Is it easy to carry?

Yes!

Although these mats are very sturdy, they weigh just 5 pounds each.

They’re especially easy to carry in a great, 100% natural cotton canvas mat bag.

9. Is it artistic?

Yes!

All mats in the Yoga Mats for the Devoted collection are inspired by yogis and designed by independent artists.

With so many options and colors to choose from it’s possible to choose a unique mat that expresses your creative side.
