Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great grip - don't need a towel! I bought this as a gift for my mom and now am buying one for myself! I hate using a towel on top of my mat in hot yoga, and with this mat you don't need one! Great grip, even when sweaty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Broza yoga Matt Purchased 2x Broza print matts for my wife and now she is a yoga goddess!!! Can’t say enough how cool they are and how good she looks on them. Yoga pants and Yoga Matt’s.... good combo. Thanks Brent and Manduka for hooking us up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practice Changing Going to my hot classes and then usually to work or meeting some friends after means that lugging around a mat, towel, and shower towel is unrealistic. This mat has changed it all! It's beautiful, light, and rolls up small, perfect for commuting between my hot classes and work. Plus, the design is absolutely stunning - an added bonus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and functional Great for people with sweaty palms and feet in any flow class, not just hot. Beautiful design! Wish it came in a longer length of course!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grip city love it ! I think there on to something . Soft to touch and plenty of cushion for a machine washable item. I sweat a lot ,No slip at all and i didn't wet it before. I would love it longer (couple inch`s 78 is to long) maybe little wider . I'm a 5`11 man .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and functional! This mat is not only beautiful, it also offers the best grip during a hot yoga class of any mat I have used in my 19+ years of yoga practice—hands down! Easy to wash in the washer and dries relatively quickly. I can’t speak to long term quality, since I’ve only had it about a month, but I’m so happy with this purchase.

My habit is to do the flow portion and THEN put a Yogitoes towel down for the seated/core portion of class. But I can't do a down dog on my towel without my hands slipping forward! Will I have the same problem with this style of mat?

Asked by: catyoga
You would, but I got a tip from my teacher to just sprinkle a little from your water bottle in the area that your hands typically go and rub that into the mat a bit. The traction is there right away. I love this mat and get a lot of compliments. Buy!

Do you offer a lifetime guarantee with this model?  It's not explicitly listed as it is in the Pro etc.  I'm just nervous with the gripping issues stated by some practitioners on this review.  Thank you.

Asked by: Amy13
This mat doesn't have a lifetime guarantee, I believe it's only the PRO and PROlite that Manduka offers that on. In terms of the grip, its been one of the better hot yoga mats in my experience. In order to ensure you have the best grip from the start, I like to start my class by lightly spraying down the mat with the spray bottle in my studio. It activates the grip much quicker!!

Has anyone who practices the ashtanga method tried this mat? I am wondering how it would be during the first surya namaskaras before I get sweaty? Thanks!

Asked by: marthaynes
Yes, I have used this mat several times now, and I have not slipped at any point during my practice - I typically start with sun salutations and don’t start sweating until a few minutes in!

How often should this mat be washed? After every use like a yogitoes towel? How does it hold up after multiple machine washes?

Asked by: SweatyBetty
If you have a balcony or a place to hang this mat, you're golden. Don't leave it wrapped up. Here's what I do after practice: 1. Fold the rubber sides against each other to touch so these don't get wet 2. Roll the folded mat and transport it home 3. Soak a wash cloth in warm, soapy water 4. Wipe down the mat 5. Hang it on your balcony or bathroom towel rack I usually can do about 3-4 practices before needing to wash it. Quick way: throw it in the washing machine (cold) with some detergent and try not to add a bunch of other stuff to the wash. The less stuff, the less likely something will damage the mat Correct way: put it in your shower or tub, run water over it and scrub it with a sponge, light bristle brush or hand with light soap. Ring it out and get as much water out of it (this will allow it to dry faster). Takes usually a full day to be fully dry or put it out in the sun to speed things up. Hope this helps

How is the grip if it isn’t wet? I am a yoga instructor and teach vinyasa but I’m not always sweating a lot. I no longer use my last manduka pro mat because it never broke in even after months of use and 2 salt treatments. Not sure I’d I should risk it.

Asked by: Kristin J
I think the grip is good even in slower flow and restore classes, though it seems others have had problems. Once my body is just a little warm, it’s just like using a towel on top of any other mat.

I just received this mat in the mail. I'm thinking of returning it. I immediately tried Downward dog and slid right off. Is this normal? I'm so disappointed.

Asked by: AleciaAnn
I had this problem. I agree with ayogi's tip. But if your main practice isn't hot yoga, I suggest returning it and swapping it out for something like the eKo (I called their customer service and they gave me a coupon code since I bought my mat during cyber monday discount).

Is this a mat or a towel? I'm confused. But I LOVE the artists' designs!!

Asked by: hopeforsun
It’s both! Imagine a towel seamlessly glued on top of your regular mat. I just got mine today and I’m impressed so far!
