I have a nice plush carpet that I do exercises and stretches on, but I wanted to find something to use on top of it so I don’t get it gross with my sweat or get me gross since I walk on it (without shoes). This yoga mat was just what I wanted, it’s washable, stays in place on the carpet, and is more grippy than my carpet so I don’t slip. I also like that my bare feet don’t stick to it when I’m jumping around like they do on a regular yoga mat. It would be nice if it was a bit wider, but I’m still very happy with it. It’s a bit longer than my regular yoga mat and the same width.If you use this mat on a wood or tile floor you would definitely need a rubber mat under it to keep it from sliding. Even a regular yoga mat would work and give it more cushIf I decide to do yoga poses where I would need a good grippy mat so I don’t slip and hurt myself, I will use my rubber yoga mat and save this one for stretches and other exercises. It is cotton
Got this mat to use both alone and as a topper for my rubber mat. It did take a while to ship, but was worth the wait for the price ($21). I recommend washing the mat a couple of times (I hung it to dry and did not use a dryer) because it comes quite stiff. After about a month of regular use it has worn in wonderfully and I love using it to practice yoga. It does slide around on a hardwood or smooth floor, but it's a cotton mat, so expect to need a rubber mat under it, particularly for poses done on your knees. Alone, I love to use it outside, directly on the ground -- it can't slide around there, it's easy to wash after, and feels more meditative and closer to the earth than a standard mat.
I've been using the mat when sleeping on the floor. I find the typical mattress to be too soft and the bare floor too hard; but this mat provides the right balance. It has adequate thickness and a natural material; not too hard, not too soft, and is much more comfortable when lying down. I feel well-grounded and well-circulated, which makes getting up a lot easier after hours of sleep.
I put it in the bathroom as a floor covering. It is perfect for the purpose - doesn't slip, provides some cushioning, and is washable. I ordered Green, but what I received is Teal (and labeled as such) so the listed colors are not accurate. But that being said, the Teal is beautiful and works as well as Green for the feng shui color scheme in my bathroom. So I'm happy.
I use it almost every day and love it. Great quality.
