Manduka pro®, 66 x 180 cm - Standard
Manduka pro®, 66 x 180 cm - Standard
Offered by Yogamatters Ltd.
Price: £75.00

5.0 out of 5 stars So it was true: it is ideal!, 18 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not noticeably heavier than the so much thinner and so much less sturdier Tree Mat; definitely sturdy (doesn't bend or move when it's between you and the floor, so you never need to stop to flatten or rearrange it; doesn't stretch at all when you are in long low warrior poses, etc). It's not slippery!, the best mat I've tried for down dog...
So solid and reliable, but with great cushioning; extremely comfortable for the knees...
Ideal. Wouldn't want to use any other mat anymore.
It smells of something artificial, but it's not too strong. Easy to keep clean.
Extremely reliable for head and handstands (on other mats, these were scary!).
Nothing not to like in it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, 11 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not small or for children or skiny people at all...I'm actually a size 14 and I use it wearing a thick jacket and it's perfectly fine...
I like the way it looks and it's not big but enough for a day out, the gym, etc. Light, sturdy.

3.0 out of 5 stars It really is very big...and the map is cut by the spiral :(, 11 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very big, don't think it's feasible to take it anyway, actually, thus loosing its purpose, kind of...as when I'm at home, I have Google maps :oP Otherwise nice map...
I also found the street index in the end (occupying about one third of the whole book?) a little excessive...as you can check online where your destination is and I don't think you need an index anymore in the book itself nowadays, making it so much heavier and thicker...

Fitness Mad Tree Mat - Natural Rubber Mat Aubergine/Lavender

2.0 out of 5 stars After the third use, holes appear on the top layer!!, 11 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First impressions; I would have given it 4 stars...:
"It's heavy (2 kg) and when you are in warrior poses it does get stretched a bit worryingly (will it last?) ...however, it's good to stand and practise on, actually. Down dog, ah, is there a solution for down dog? Even with dry hands, first try, my hands are slipping away already...and it gets worse as I start sweating. What will it be like in a hot yoga room? :oP The only way to do it is keep hands and feet not as far apart as I would like.
I have my doubts about the mat's longevity, but that said, I wouldn't want to be without it now...I don't know if there are better options, though; I'm wondering if I should have bought a Manduka instead.
About the rubbery smell, not a problem...I don't smell of rubber, my hands don't smell after using it. You can smell it if you keep it spread...but not if it's rolled. I'm not aware of the smell while using the mat, it really isn't strong.
I don't find it abrasive either, in spite of having very sensitive-finicky skin, so that's also good...
Oh yes, it really is very thin, you probably don't want to stand on your knees on this one...I'm usually ok with thin mats with little cushioning, but I do find this one a bit extreme :oP You can always bend it, though".
BUT after the third use (1.5 to 2 hours each time; I am not heavy and I don't jump on it), I see several holes on the top layer of the mat (where my feet must have been often, I guess?); they are small, but on rubber, they are certainly going to grow (and multiply!). I'm sending it back (fortunately it happened within the first week of use!) and I'll buy a Manduka...double the price, but with a lifetime guarantee!, it should work out cheaper than this one...
Very strange, as the cheap mats in yoga studios, being old and used so often, seem to be in a better shape than this one which is almost new. The experience has prevented me from buying the Manduka Eko mat, which would have been my first preference; I'll go for the sturdier one...

2.0 out of 5 stars Mhm pff, 11 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't like it...I should have listened to the lady who wrote that his dog runs enthusiastically to the kitchen when he hears her open the can. It's exactly what it feels like to me: dog food. I love firm tofu...this isn't really firm tofu; it looks like long thin stripes of torn fabric pressed together...not the way it looks like in the photo on the can at all, actually. Won't buy again...

5.0 out of 5 stars It works!, 11 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I used to feel exhausted, dizzy, weak, and extremely sleepy after a couple of hours of hot yoga, for a few days!, in spite of all the litres of water before, during and after...
This powder seems to work, as I haven't had any more of those symptoms since the first time I started using it...
One more good thing is it's also easy to drink, it makes you want to keep drinking even if you aren't thirsty, for some reason.
The after taste, though, is a bit sweet...I find it nice (although the smell is not wonderful), but not for so long during exercise; I think I'll try the lime one the next time.

Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Works very well, 17 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for someone who had an issue with bad breath due to stuff building up on their tongue. The feedback is that it works very well - but that person did also state that they would prefer a brush as this tends to leave the stuff it pulls out on the tongue which needs to be rinsed while a brush obviously removes it completely. Still it reduced gagging due to its shape and does the job i.e. to remove bad breath!

Honestly very surprised at getting a set like this for the price - it is absolutely flat and adds no colouring to the mix - its perfect to review a studio mix. I use this along with a AKG K512 and Samson Resolv 40a flat to validate mixes
