Is this an open-cell or closed-cell mat?
Our mats are made from PU and as such closed-cell - this means they are more hygienic as they don’t absorb bacteria as easily, maintain their grip, are not affected by sweat and tend to last longer for this reason.
How do I clean my Paws mat?
Use a DILUTED mixture of water and lemon juice then gently rub with a damp cloth. Leave out to dry away from direct sunlight.
Can I purchase a carry strap for my Paws mat?
Yes, our Yogi Bare Hug is the perfect, adjustable carry strap/holder to carry your mat with ease. With both a carrying handle on the sling and a strap to carry over your shoulder for maximum comfort.

I’ve owned some big name mats and to be honest, the yogi bare mat is even better at half the price. It’s light, the grip is amazing and the paw pattern is so stinking cute. It has lost a tiny bit of grip since I first bought it but that is to be expected. At some point we have to take responsibility in our practice and not solely rely on the mats grip.
I clean it once a week with lemon juice and luke warm water and It dries very quickly.
It doesn’t stretch like some other mat when I’m downdog or Warrior 2. It is seriously the best addition to any yoga practice.
I will not be buying any other mat, the price and quality are unbeatable.
This mat feels of great quality, I have never owned a mat like this. It is not thick like a pilates mat, so gives you more firmness, but it is quite cushin in a compact way.
The dow side, for those who walk to class, is that this is a quite heavy mat.
I couldn't be more happy with it for home yoga practice

Price - Its hard to part with large sums of money when so many mats are available for around ten pounds. A ten pound mat will get you started if you aren't committed yet. I was looking to spend between £30 and £50, I still cannot justify in my mind paying over £100 for a yoga mat. This mat appears to have all the premium features at a decent price.
Thickness - I've had thicker mats before and found them too cushioned. I'm not doing HIIT workouts on the mat and I don't suffer with knee pain or wrist pain, so I was looking for a thinner mat so I can feel the connection solidly with the ground. This is the perfect thickness for me without feeling too thin.
Non-slip - this is probably the NUMBER 1 concern. All my other mats have left my hands slipping in a good down dog. Every mat I read the reviews on had at least one person complaining about grip, so in the end I had to go with a mat that had a high number of positive reviews. So far I have only had a chance to lay the mat out and quickly test it, but I did this in socks and did not slip one tiny bit. The hands were solid. One of the reviews I read said that the grip wore out, so I will endeavour to update this review in a month and then after 6 months.
UPDATE: After a solid first use I am very pleased with the non-slip grip, my hands didn't move at all even when I pushed deeper into my down dog which puts a lot of horizontal force into the mat. The mat also very importantly did not stretch which is another issue I've had before.
Weight & portability - not a factor for me as its for home practice. This is a solid feeling mat though and not what I would call lightweight. It also does not come with a carry strap/bag so you would need to buy a strap or bag. It does however roll up very tight and doesn't try to spring open like other mats, so its easy to store and doesn't need straps to hold it in the rolled up position.
Size - I'm 6ft and this mat is perfect for me. No concerns here.
Extras - this mat has lines on it. This is a new thing for me and I'm not sure yet how useful it will be, but I'll update on how well they last. Worse case I'll get a sharpie out!
Eco! I prefer an eco option when available so another bonus for me.
Smell - some people have reported a strong smell. I have had no such issues at all.
TL;DR: Great mat, non-slip and well made. You won't regret this purchase
Updates after using for 2 weeks:
You know a mat is good when you don't think about it. The mat works so well that my practice just flows without interruption, at no point am I aware of the mat, I just feel solidly grounded in ways that no previous mat has done for me.
I have had a couple of outdoor sessions and it has rained on me - the mat does show up water and grease marks very strongly, but they seem to fade on their own accord after 24 to 48 hours. I'm yet to wash the mat and so far don't feel the need.
I have also travelled twice with the mat - it rolls up a lot tighter than a lot of mats which is great. It doesn't suffer from any memory effect after being rolled up and lies totally flat as soon as it is rolled out. At this point I can honestly say I don't think I will ever be considering another mat in the future, I am a converted long term customer!
The mat is as described. I have used it daily but as I have only had it several days cannot comment as to how long the lovely grippy surface with last. I do not practice hot yoga so can't comment on how it fairs in this form of yoga practice. I chose the black option as I thought the other colour-ways may show marks more easily. It is a fairy weighty mat but that is fine for me as I wanted this for my home practice. I like the print which does have the central line demarkation and pattern for assistance in asana placement. Found the size of the mat ok as well - I am 5ft 6ins and at 4mm thick is just what I wanted. I have added a second photo to show the reverse of the Yogi-Bare mat. I have only used the mat on a carpeted floor so far (largest space available to me!), and the back too is nice and 'grabby' to prevent a lot of movement. On carpet there is a bit of movement I have to say but this is minimal and I've not found it a problem at all. I suspect without carpet there would be no movement at all. I feel I should point out that just turning the corner of the mat over to show the difference in texture of the top and reverse of the mat, there was a small foldline in the rubber top afterwards though this disappeared after 2 days. It means however, that it needs to be rolled away carefully after use. I would imagine the mat would suffer if left for a few days with a fold in it. Rolling up the mat after using is easy though and once rolled, the mat holds this position well without a strap or bag, though as the mat doesn't come with either of these, you would have to purchase one if you did want to travel with it.
With only having the Yogi-Bare mat such a short time I have not needed to clean as yet of course but the reverse of the label tells how to do this with lemon juice (added image of the label's instructions on this review for reference).
I love my new Yogi-Bare Paws natural rubber yoga mat and hope that the wonderful grippy surface and indeed the mat itself. lasts me. Great mat, delivered very quickly and although it's not been in my possession long, would happily recommend it too.
The difference is so amazing. I can actually focus on different postures without having to keep re-adjusting and worrying that I'm going to slide out of them!
I spent SO long researching yoga mats. But having read lots of reviews and watched lots of videos I came to the decision to get a Yogi Bare because it's a UK based company and half the price of another highly rated mat (with probably no real difference, apart from design).
I'm thrilled. It's great. Sticky, great design, fantastic quality and makes a huge difference.
Far and away the best one I’ve owned and practised on to date. Having spent a stupid amount of money searching for my perfect practise partner, I’ve at last found it and it wasn’t even the most expensive.
For the record, I’ve owned a Liforme mat and a Manduka Pro. The YogiBare Paws mat for me is above those.
The grip is excellent. In Downward Facing Dog you are NOT MOVING. I don’t practise hot styles of yoga but my hands do sweat and on other mats I have slipped unless using a mat towel. On my Paws mat, no towel needed. So no fidgeting with a moving towel. I can simply be in the moment and really focus on my practise. I honestly didn’t realise how much I was fidgeting with a towel until I didn’t need one anymore.
The paws mat for me is a comfortable thickness. I practise Vinyasa, Hatha and Yin styles.
Rubber mats do show sweat marks but they fade and it’s not a big deal.
I clean mine once a week with the lemon juice/water recommendation that comes on the mats wrapping.
I’ve discovered that YogiBare are a company with ethics and great customer service. I’ll continue to support this brand.
