I've tried a few yoga mats in my short time being a yogi & I have to say that I'm pretty impressed by this Premium Yoga Mat from Yoga Design Lab. Not to mention that I'm in love with the no fuss strap!
From looks alone, this looks like your standard sleek Jet Black yoga mat (72x24), with a simple Yoga Design Lab logo. But I assure you, it's not.
Made with 5mm of premium memory foam, this mat provides an insane amount of cushion compared to other mats. Usually I can only hold Bitilasana & Marjaryasana for a few minutes each before I start to feel it in my knees. But with this mat, I can hold them for well over five minutes with no problems.
The only issue I have with this mat, is when my palms start getting sweaty, I have a hard time holding my grip. But I'm not balancing on just my hands very often, so it's nothing that would deter me from using it often.
Always remember to wash your yoga mat prior to using it. Use a gentle soap & a wet hand towel, rinse & hang dry. (Or you can use your favorite yoga mat spray & allow it to air dry.) At first you'll notice some small dents in your mat after practicing, but it's just from the memory foam & they'll appear less often over time.
Yoga Design Lab provides eco-friendly products & this mat just so happens to be free of phthalates, latex, metals & harmful toxins. Even better, $1 from every purchase goes to support Urban Youth Yoga Programs in need, because "giving back is awesome".
The Premium Yoga Mat with Strap is available on Amazon ($35 with PRIME shipping) & has a money back guarantee.
