OK I was a good doobie and I even wiped my mat down with a washcloth today. I never noticed any real chemical smell to it but I imagine with my feet being all over it that keeping it clean will be important smile

It does seem nice and cushiony so I'm glad I went with the thick mat.

Mine is

72" x 24" x 1/4"

It looks like yours is

24 inches wide x 48 inches long

That can't be longer than your body?? Or is their Amazon page wrong?

That's really odd - maybe you should put a quick review up on the Amazon page to tell people that the measurement is wrong. I bet you'd get a ton of positive kudos for that!!

So how long is yours, can you tell? I'm just curious if mine is long enough or if I should get an even longer one.

oh, which Dan adds is 5'10.

I like it being long but maybe experienced yoga people can add if that is important?

Ok so yours is about the exact same size as mine. Mine has been good so far, so I think we're in good shape!

For the first time today my hands slipped a little during one of the poses, it was during the pose where you lay on your side, then push up with one arm and form a long triangle between your stretched out legs and your perpendicular arm. In any case my arm wasn't very good and was slipping on the mat. This was the last pose of the session (20 minutes) so maybe my hand was sweaty too. Maybe if my arm was stronger my hand wouldn't have slipped. But I can definitely see now why you want a non-slip surface in poses like that, and I'm going to have to see going forward if I continue to slip as I get better. But one would hope that a good mat would help beginners NOT slip ...
