I was disappointed when I unrolled it and the colors are not what it looks like on the website. Online it looks like bright turquoise, hot pink/coral, and bright blue. It’s more of a dark turquoise, dark red, navy, and gray. I was excited to find one so cheerful and colorful and it wasn’t what I expected, so I’m actually pretty disappointed. It seems like a good thickness and quality otherwise.Preferred Type of Yoga Practice VinyasaLevel of Yoga Expertise BeginnerFrequency (a week) 2-4Perspiration Level ModerateDurability Star RatingRated 4.0 on a scale of 1 to 5
