This mat is perfect for beginners, and why not for more experienced yogis, as it helps to guide your hand and foot placement for the perfect alignment. The 6 mm thick mat provides enough padding under the knees and hands. Great for dynamic Astanga yoga, for example. The material does not contain any latex or harmful phthalates. The texture of the surface adds grip to the mat, so it doesn’t slip under your hands and feet.
Manufacturer's care Instructions: Yoga mats release a very strong but harmless odour when first unwrapped. Please unroll and air out your mat for 2-3 days before use. Spot clean with Gaiam Yoga Mat Wash or damp cloth with cold water and mild detergent. Dry flat. The mat may fade and become brittle and unusable if exposed to the sun for extended periods of time. We recommend storing your mat in a mat bag when not in use.
