I waited to write this review. I waited over a year, to see if the mat would finally be broken in. It is not broken in. It's just as slippery as when I first tried it. Yoga is hard enough that you shouldn't have to worrying about injuring yourself because of the mat. (Injure yourself because you did a position incorrectly like you're supposed to.) I was cheap mat guy for years. This was to be my first adult, "I can kinda do downward dog now"/not the sweatiest and most nervous guy in the room, mat. Now I often use one of my old cheap ones instead of this one. I kick myself for not getting a different, expensive mat. Guess I'll have to get a expensive mat (again).
I called Manduka when I first got it. They told me to check out the "salt" video (an athletic woman dumping coarse salt then sensually rubbing, coming back later and yoga-ing it all up). I did the coarse sea salt thing and the only result I got was my girlfriend suspiciously wondering (after she returned from a trip) why, for weeks, she kept stepping on sand or something in our apartment. The sea salt did nothing. Washing and scrubbing it in the tub--nothing. In the end, Manduka sent me a nice Manuka rag thing, for my hands to grip, and I have to use that when I do vinyasa. But I didn't want to pay that much for a rag: I wanted a reliable yoga mat.
Scrubbed it. Salted it. Let my cats bat at it. I sent all my energy and good vibes at it. Nothing. Based on other reviews, I'm not alone. It gets two stars because the customer service person at Manduka was super helpful. I'd give them another shot but not this particular product.
Manduka really needs to solve this issue prior to shipment. They shouldn't expect the consumer to toil with a mat for an excessive amount of time (a year?) in order to break in the mat enough for a comfortable AND SAFE yoga session. They use the simile of breaking in jeans but a yoga mat is NOT ANYTHING like breaking in jeans. You don't risk injury by wearing a stiff pair of jeans like you do when you step onto a slippery yoga mat. The only likeness these two experiences share are in the form of DISCOMFORT. They've also offered the advice of buying a yoga towel to cover the mat? If I had done that in the first place with my JADE yoga mat I wouldn't be stuck with their awful product.
Long story a little bit shorter--- I ordered myself a purple mat like the one I got my mom. It is exponentially less slippery than the thrive color.
All that being said, MAYBE it's a color issue? Or maybe it's just that this batch of purple was better than the batch of thrive. I'm not sure, but it may be worth trying different colors if the one you get is super slippery. Who knows!?
Mats I've owned in the past.
-basic box store mat. Died after 2 years of light use.
-Jade Harmony mat. Smelled like a tire. Sunlight destroyed it in 2 years. Sad.
-Yoga accessories mat 1/4". This was a great budget mat from Amazon that lasted almost 4 years with moderate use.
And now I've graduated to Manduka. Namaste.
