- Why unheated yoga? Tomuno is just trying to sell yoga mats the way yoga teachers recommend. We started out as a yoga studio brand. Certain kinds of mats are good for hot yoga, others for unheated yoga…
- For HOT YOGA: Yoga teachers say you need a hot yoga towel and a cheap 'smooth' PVC mat so your towel does not bunch up. Why buy a nice mat if it is hidden under a towel? In addition, the salt from sweat and abrasive yoga towels grind through yoga mats in hot yoga. Why not save your money?
- For UNHEATED YOGA: A towel would feel weird and they don't work (they need to be wet). For unheated yoga, you want a 'nice' mat that is very grippy. We feel Tomuno is the best mat on the market.
- There are 3 major yoga mat raw materials: PVC, TPE, and Rubber Tree Sap. Rubber is the most expensive raw material but in our opinion it is the grippiest. This is why it dominates the top of the yoga mat category and why it commands such a price premium over plastic mats. Tomuno is made of natural rubber.

Why else might I not like Tomuno?
1) Our mats smell of rubber at first. This smell fades but never completely.
2) Rubber wears down over time unlike some plastics.
3) Rubber is heavy.
Will I slip when I sweat?
We definitely cannot solve all slipperiness challenges? But we do feel that rubber provides the best grip of all raw materials currently available. This is why rubber has been used for centuries in things like shoe heels and why it dominates the premium yoga mat category.
The most common causes of slipperiness are: 1) yogis find our mats to be slippery BUT also slip on every other type of mat, 2) unusual amounts of lotions before yoga, e.g., massage therapists.
If you look online, all rubber mat brands see some slipperiness reports?
Scared to buy online?
We have a "No Questions Asked" return policy and free shipping both ways :).
Designed for Special Joint Issues:
Tomuno mats are 5% thicker than 3/16 inch mats providing unusual cushioning for knees and wrists.
How long does it take for the mat to 'break-in'?
Please allow a few weeks to achieve full grip.
How do I care for my mat?
1) Please do not store in direct sunlight, do not use body lotions/massage oils prior to practicing yoga.
How do I clean my mat?
1) Please do not clean with any natural oils, in a washing machine, or use harsh chemical cleaners/abrasives.
Tomuno is an eco-friendly, Ohio-based, small business.

I can say after reading so many reviews, this one by far had the best reviews. I always read the bad reviews to see if the negatives would bother me. The bad reviews on this mat were about how it wasn't good for hot yoga, but this is already mentioned on the item description and I wasnt going to use it for that purpose anyway unless i had a towel. Someone complained about the smell, but then many more reviews commented on how the smell on this mat wasnt noticeable. I agree, it has a faint smell of rubber, definitely not a nasty smell like other mats.
Do not buy this mat if you are going to do hot yoga without the towel. I don't practice hot yoga and hence this is the best yoga mat for me out there. When I do venture into the hot yoga world, I will buy a towel that works well with my beautiful mat. It keeps me from slipping, it gives good enough cushion for my practice and it works well with my wooded floors. 5 stars hands down.
I hemmed and hawed because of the price. I'll admit it. The past couple times I started back up with yoga, I didn't find the right studio and my interest waned a few months in. Exercising at home with a video didn't seem to happen on a regular basis either. I couldn't justify spending so much on a mat if I wasn't sure I would use it for an extended period so I started out with a cheap mat. Needless to say, that didn't last long because I quickly realized I didn't have a 20 year old body any more and wanted a bit more cushioning. I then got a thicker 'premium' PVC mat advertised for being 'slip resistant' and 'sticky'. I stubbornly stayed with that one for 4 months because I paid good money for it and it was fairly comfortable even though my hands did keep sliding. Yoga can get really sweaty even if you aren't practicing hot yoga and the 'sticky' claims didn't hold true. That mat also started to fall apart at 3 months in and was annoying me to distraction by 4. Little flakes of PVC sticking to your hands and clothes does not bring on a zen-like calm. That was when I had my a-ha moment and decided to just get this mat already.
I did my research. I liked what I read about rubber mats. I really liked what I read about this company. I took the plunge. I placed my order late one Saturday evening in December. By the time I got home from work on Tuesday, my new mat had arrived.
I started taking it to class and felt the difference in my practice immediately. First off, I didn't slip... at all! Not even the first day I was using it. The studio I go to is small and usually crowded. There is a lot of body heat and more than a little sweat. I have never had a mat that I didn't slide on. It would usually be my hands starting to inch away from where they started in downward dog. This annoyance is completely gone now. My hands stay put. Without the fear (or reality) of sliding, I am able to hold the poses longer in better form. A difference noticeable to the point that my instructor actually commented on it...
The other vast improvement over my old thick mat is the density of this one. My old mat was thick because that company pretty much pumped the material full of air. That made it thick but squishy. If you've ever tried balancing on one leg on a thick squishy mat, you know how well that works. Unless you have really strong ankles, it doesn't work at all. This mat is 5mm thick (which makes it nice for my knees and wrists) but dense enough that I don't have any issue doing balance poses on it. Yes the density and material make the mat about 3 times heavier than my old one but I'm considering that a fair trade off. I joke that I get a little extra workout carrying the mat to my studio.
Thank you Rob - I know you're reading this :) The letter you sent with tips on washing the mat etc was highly appreciated. Best wishes for your company.
