Sarah Chambers is the founder of Hugger Mugger™. She was an accomplished woodworker when she discovered Yoga. The sport's tremendous impact of her health made Yoga a way of life for Sarah. She began developing wooden and fabric tools to help with her practice in 1986.
She began developing products for fellow yogis, including the company's namesake, Hugger Muggers. She developed apparel meant to conceal and comfort. Since the word "hugger-mugger" means "to conceal" the catchy name, Hugger Mugger fit.
Among Hugger Mugger's most notable designs is the Tapas Sticky Mat. Predecessor mats were not designed specifically for Yoga and would deteriorate quickly with use. The Tapas Sticky Mat was the first long-term performance yoga mat and continues to set the standards for the industry. For more than 25 years, Hugger Mugger has been known as an innovator of technically advanced yoga products serving yoga teachers and students throughout the world. For every online sale, Hugger Mugger gives back by donating a percentage of the profit to a different organization each quarter.

I am 5’ 8”. My new mat is long enough that I can go through class without repositioning on the mat - just what I was looking for. I’m not sure why it is called “ultra thick”. It isn’t particularly thick at all.Preferred Type of Yoga Practice VinyasaLevel of Yoga Expertise BeginnerFrequency (a week) 5-7Perspiration Level LightDurability Star RatingRated 5.0 on a scale of 1 to 5

at first I was excited about how sticky this mat is. Unfortunately it picks up every piece of dirt, lint, hair within a 50 mile radius. Since i do yoga at a gym this is not a good thing. the cushioning seemed nonexistant. I have inflammatory arthritis and my cheap old mat has way more cushion so I am not happy with this purchase.
