great thin mat7/31/2012
I use this mat as a grippy towel on top of my regular yoga mat. It is super thin and has one latex side and one super grippy side. Mine is green and I use it with the super grippy side on top. On this page they advertise it as a travel mat because you don't neccesarily need a mat underneeth (although I always do, because the grippy mat is sooo thin you would feel the floor underneeth). I like it better than a grippy towel because it doesn't shrink down in the laundry (I put it in the dryer as well) and has one more BIG advantage: it doesn't move while you're doing your yoga. When I use a grippy towel, it always ends up ruffling all over the place, and the grippy mat stays perfectly in place.
Love this Mat7/12/2011
I love this mat - great for travel and for the club. So thin it keeps you in touch with the floor and great for balance. I like the discipline of keeping a tight core and light on my hands, knees and feet. I have washed it several times in my wash machine and hang it to dry. Warning... it needs more than 2 days to completely dry. I washed on a Saturday and used on Monday and it wouldn't stick to the floor. By Wednesday it was fine.
