Angelbeeds gave it a 5 star rating on March 22, 2016 and stated, “ I purchased the 85 inch in black sage. The color was so green it was almost black. More like a forest green. I really do not care for that color, but perfect for my husband. I ended up getting the color sensation as pink is my favorite color. I adore the color! I am five foot eight so it was not completely necessary for me to have the longer length, but I really love having the extra length to stretch out on and not have my head or feet on the floor ever. I chose the pro because of the cushioning and the lifetime warranty. It is not as squishy at all just dense and having hardwood floors, the cushioning is amazing. Yes it is heavy to lug around, but I do not mind because I drive to class. The mat still looks brand new even after scrubbing.

Jennifer Beard who only gave it one star because it was so slippery on Dec 7, 2017 stated: I love the color of this mat but despite having it for eleven months and using it one or two times a week, I am slipping all over the place during my practice. I tried the salt; I tried vinegar. But nothing helps. The tiny slips are injury- inducing me and keeping me feeling a low-grade amount of anxiety while I try to ease into my zen place. I am frustrated because the price of this mat was steep and the other reviews I read were so positive. I kept thinking it would get better over time but it hasn’t.

HSB gave it a five star rating on March 22, 2018 and stated: OMG it was a seemingly long journey to my loving this mat because of its slippery nature at first. Now its my main mat and I adore it. At first, I could not break this mat satisfactorily for the first three months and spent a lot of time amazed that the company gets away with selling one of the most expensive mats-on the market—given the lack of grip when you start using it. I had to have faith that I could do away with the slick outside layer as I followed all instructions—salt, sunning the mat, and putting it in a pool a few times. I even put it in my gigantic clothes washer on cold, which was a potentially stupid thing to do both to the washer and the mat, but I was desperate to break up that layer. I stomped on it with shoes on and I beat it with sticks to break up or abrade its surface a bit.

I also cleaned it religiously every day after yoga class to try and get rid of the film or whatever it is that is slick on top of the mat.
I frankly don’t know which of these measures helped but now it is the best mat ever because it is not slippery or slick during yoga in any way and it looks great because it obviously very tough and will last forever. My other grippier mats came out of the box now look terrible while the Manduka pro still looks good.

Stephanie G. rated it 5 out of 5 on June 2, 2017 and stated: Love this yoga mat! I do hot yoga and it works great. No slipping at all. Worked well dry and stayed great. I sweat easily and a lot!! Beautiful design too. Will report back on how durable it is with time.

Devon Frala rated it 1 star out of 5 Jan. 12, 2018 and stated: I didn’t realize this mat can ONLY be used for hot yoga. If you are not dripping wet with sweat, you just slide over the surface. Unfortunately I did not keep the box, so now I have a yoga mat I can’t use. Its really to bad because I love the design and its well made.

KShin rated it 4 out of 5 stars on Feb. 2, 2018 and stated: Love, love, love this mat…Its beautiful and allows me to ditch the hot towel for the bikram yoga classes I take. You do have to put a small amount of water down for inversions if you are not sweating yet. It makes it stickier. I just need to figure out how often to wash it and with what but that is ok!

Tommy Griffin rated it 5 out of 5 Dec. 26, 2017 and stated: Bought this mat to do high intensity cardio workouts. I have used it for a month now and I am super impressed with it. It has a nice feel to it and a good amount of give, but you don’t feel the floor underneath you.

KAnders rated it 5 out of 5 starts on Dec. 8, 2017 and stated: Bought it to use in an at home workout area. It was perfect-covered large area of the cement floor, two grown men could workout side by side, has a great non-slip surface. Would definitely recommend buying this mat.

Eric rated it 4 out of 5 stars on June 21, 2018 and stated: The quality of the mat seems to be pretty good, size is exactly what I needed and its going to be the right mat for the new workout space. The only nit
I have to pick was there was some tape on the back side of the mat, maybe left over from packing or something-when I started to pull it off, it began to tear it off it tore a chunk out of the back of the mat.

Miss Aimez rated the yoga mat 5 out of 5 stars on May 18, 2016 and stated: Awesome yoga mats. The colors I ordered were orange and maroon. The
maroon was a little on the red side. But they work well for what we are using them for. As for the smell, I can hardly notice it.

Kilgore gave the mat 5 stars out of 5 on May 18, 2017 and stated: I had this mat now for 3 yrs now and it has held up extremely well. I use it in my yoga class 2 to 3 times a week for an hour. The thickness of the mat has a lot of advantages. Warning on cleaning this mat is a big sponge when wet. To wash it put it in the fresh water first and let it soak before applying the soap.

Amazon Customer gave a rating of 3 stars out of 5
on Aug 29, 2017 and stated: This mat is nice but the front balls of my feet would slip and it felt like some residue was on the mat so what I did I washed it and scrubbed it with water and laundry soap. After it dried I took rubbing alcohol and paper towel and wiped it down. That help a lot and I don’t slip anymore.

JJ Marquis rated the mat 5 out of 5 starts and stated: Still using the yoga mat 4 yrs later. Its thick enough that doing yoga on hardwood floors isn’t a problem and it also helps to insulate if the floor is cold. It does tear during use eventually, but only the small tears of age and wear. Only drawback is that it doesn’t stay in place on hard floors.

Lindsey M gave the mat 5 out of 5 stars on March 14, 2017. And stated: This mat is awesome. It is so squishy and very well made.
