The 6 mm thick yoga mat offers enough cushioning for calm exercises and support for dynamic ones. The 6 mm mat is also recommended for yogis who need more padding under their knees and wrists. Gaiam yoga mats are made of highly durable PVC and have a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer. The material does not contain any latex or harmful phthalates. The texture of the surface gives the yoga mat more grip, so it doesn't slip under your hands and feet.
Manufacturer's care Instructions: Printed 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.
