Great mat
I work out 5-6 days a week doing both Piyo and Pilates and I love this mat. I read some reviews saying it was too sticky, I have had no problems with that. Piyo requires you go from standing, jumping and down to burpies with no feet sticking to the mat or hands sliding on the mat and believe me I do a lot of sweating. The cushion is just right for Pilates when your are on your hands and knees. I would definitely recommend this product.

I chose the wrong mat
I purchased the 68" Tapas Original Yoga Mat in Gray. This was the first mat I've ever purchased (because the cheap Target one that stretches when I move doesn't count) and I did a lot of research and tried out several of my friends' mats before making my purchase, but I still think I made the wrong decision.

I've only had the mat about two weeks and used the mat a handful of times so far, so I can't comment on long-term quality. But initial quality seems good. It had a bit of a smell when I got it, but I washed it with a dish soap solution and laid it out for a few days. I can still kind of smell it when my nose is right next to it, but it's fading fast. I don't have a problem with slipping on the mat (as long as I use the right side - when I first laid it out I was slipping all over the place before I realized my mistake).

I wish, however, that I would have bought a longer and thicker mat. I'm only 5'4", so I thought the standard length would be fine, but my toes or nose are often hanging over the ends b/c I must move a lot between my poses. The thickness is okay until I'm doing a lot of poses on my knees. In hindsight, I wish I would have gotten a thicker mat. For now, I'll just throw down and extra towel or blanket or roll over the mat.

Economical Solution for My Clients
I ordered two Tapas mats for several of my private clients and they have liked these mats for their Egoscue work. The tackiness is nice – no sliding around on the mat and the size of the mat is suitable. My one concern is that these are pretty thin (as advertised) but clients haven't been bothered by that. I use a thicker Hugger Mugger mat in my yoga practice and prefer it, but for studio use, these mats are fine.

Beautiful mat, amazing price
Love the thin profile, it's got a surprisingly cushy feel to it. I sweat quite a bit so I slipped a little in certain postures, so I bought the Hugger Mugger yoga towel to go with it. For the price this mat is a no brainer. And if you're not a sweater then get this mat now! I did end up scrubbing it down with sea salt and that helped a lot with the slipping issue.

Love This Mat
I have a collection of different mats and this one is excellent as an old favorite. What I like most is that I don't slip on it, at all. Really sticky, even when palms or feet are moist/sweaty. Would buy this again.

It's okay
When I first put my mat down, I feel like a tree frog. My feet really stick to the mat. But as I get into practice, and as my hands and feet get sweaty, I start sliding. This is not okay. This might be a good beginner mat, or a mat for a non-vigorous/non sweaty practice, but if you sweat, it's not the right mat.

Great yoga mat, very well made
I have had this mat for 10 years. I recently bought another one because I wanted a new color. Some days (when I need more cushion) I even put them together. I think this is a great buy!
