I love being active, and more recently, yoga has been a part of my routine. One of the essential things for yoga is a good yoga mat, to help provide some cushioning and provide a good non-slip surface to allow for good stability.
I have been using my Yoga Design Lab Premium Yoga Mat for hot yoga, in a studio that is heated to 90 to 95 degrees with 40% to 60% humidity.
I am 5’7″ and the yoga mat provided more than enough space to get into various positions. The Premium Yoga Design Mat measures 72 x 24″, which is plenty of room for me, and it is definitely nice and long.
My yoga studio has a padded floor which nicely complements this mat. Before I got this mat I was using a very basic mat that I got from a local discount retailer. I find that the Yoga Design Lab mat does provide extra cushioning which is very nice on my joints. The mat is constructed with a material that is like a memory foam, and makes it very comfortable for doing yoga or stretching even on hard floors.
My previous mat had a bit of a chemical smell to it, and I I find that this Yoga Design Lab mat has no odor, as the product description promises. I like that this mat is free of harmful toxins and is eco-friendly and safe – no Phthalates, no latex, no metals, no harmful toxins – and it is SGS Approved.
This mat is supposed to be non-slip, and does have a grippy surface. However it does get a bit slippery when used during hot yoga sessions, due to heavy sweating.
I find it very handy that this yoga mat comes with a shoulder strap. At the end of my class I simply roll up my mat and put the strap on, making it very user friendly. The strap is an easy way to carry the mat to and from yoga class.
This mat is easy to wash by simply wiping it down, rinsing it, and allowing it to air-dry.
There is a 100% money-back guarantee if you are not happy with your yoga mat. I will definitely be using mine for many yoga and stretching sessions to come!
