I’m new to yoga and this was the first mat I purchased. It’s great! I use it at home for my daily morning yoga. I personally prefer a thicker mat for when I go to the studio, but this is great at home.Preferred Type of Yoga Practice VinyasaLevel of Yoga Expertise BeginnerFrequency (a week) 2-4Perspiration Level LightDurability Star RatingRated 5.0 on a scale of 1 to 5

- NickyVerified BuyerRated 4 out of 5 stars5 years agoReviewingGaiam Sage Vibe Printed Yoga Mat 68" 4mmAwesome but a little slippery
I love the pattern and the thickness. The first time I used it I was a little hot and sweaty and I kept slidding around on it. I think with use that will go away.

This mat looks gorgeous online, but in person it doesn't look quite the same. That's not my real problem with the mat though. The real issue is that the mat feels poorer quality than I think it should. It slips easily as well.
