There are two sides to this and nearly all yoga mats. Look carefully at the 'bumps' on each side of the mat. On most mats, the larger bumps are designed to face upwards to cushion your hands, feet, and knees during poses while keeping your body from dangerously slipping out of alignment. The smaller bumps are designed to face downwards to grip the floor and keep the yoga mat from sliding. With this mat it's slightly different. Manduka's mats have a unique dotted bottom surface that holds the mat in place during your practice. It looks unlike any other mat you've ever seen.Read more ›
As far as the Manduka mat in general, I have used two other mats and this one provides a lot more support. I find it to be very dense and firm, with just enough tactile feeling. And, the mat does not move around on me. I really like that. My yoga teacher said this was the best mat around.I am glad I listened to her sage advice.

I also highly recommend the 85-inch length. I am not a tall person (at 5' 10", I am exactly average), but I love the extra length. I no longer ever find myself having to readjust a pose because I didn't start in exactly the right spot on the mat. It is a bit heavier (9 lbs.), but so what. It's exercise.
Now let me make a case for why this mat is actually a good value:
I have only been practicing yoga for a year (three 1-hour classes a week), and in that time I have purchased two mats for $30 each. One I've already worn out (material broke down from use) and the second one is on its way to wearing out. If I buy a third $30 mat I am now up to $90 in just over a year. The Manduka mat will last a lifetime and will make your practices better. And at $85, it's cheaper than any single club in my golf bag (and I carry 14 of those). So my opinion is: suck it up and spend the money. It only hurts for a minute and you'll forget all about it the first time you step onto this mat!

There aren't too many yoga mats designed for tall people. This one is extra thick and extra long. It's great because I'm not hanging over the ends of the mat like a normal 72... Read morePublished 3 days ago by ViolentMetaphor

Best yoga mat! My yoga teacher recommended it and he was right. Thick, professional grade, non slip. Cheap mats are not thick enough. Make an investment in your health.Published 6 days ago by A mom
I have been using it daily for almost a year---its still holding up.
It is super heavy though. I wish I would have bought the smaller one.
As many have stated, this is a very high quality mat. Luxuriously sized, I can do my full straddle stretches with no worry of my heels on either side exceeding the mat. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Navarre
