Getting the right tool makes all the difference.
I am always looking for mats to recommend to my students. It’s an investment, but doing yoga on a mat where you slide is awful, in my opinion.
This Sol Sticky Grip Yoga mat has a nice thickness for the knees and both sides are functional. The side with the design is smooth and I’ve yet to slip on it. The other side is like a more traditional yoga mat.
The only downside is that due to the thickness, it is a bit heavy, but use the right mat bag and the weight really presents no problem.
I know we can buy mats almost anywhere today. I would not recommend a new student invest too much in a new mat but once you’re dedicated to your practice having the right tool makes all the difference.
I can recommend this mat as one worth buying if you’re looking for a mat with cushioning where you won’t slide. Gaiam boasts this mat has a coating that keeps out odors, moisture and bacteria with a polyurethane coating that keeps practitioners from slipping.
