Great Mat!
I love this mat! If you think you may want a little extra cushion for your wrists this is the perfect mat for you. So comfortable and very grippy :D

Good mat, but a bit slippery
I’ve been a long time fan of Hugger Mugger mats. I bought this one after I loved my last one (one of their tapas mats) to death. I like the size and the thickness of this mat, as well as the colors. My only issue is that my hands slip ): I have to use a yoga towel to do downward dog properly. One of the previous reviews said that she had a similar problem and that she assumed it would go away as she broke the mat in, so I waited for that to happen, but I’ve had it for about six months now and haven’t had any improvement. As a long time customer and fan, I am a tad disappointed. Besides the slipping, the mat is great.

Love this mat!
I've been looking for just this thickness of mat and am delighted to have been exposed to it by another student in my yoga classes. I've only had it about a week (3 classes or so) and my only initial concern was my hands slipping on the surface in down dog. But, I have cleaned it well after ever class and the finish that is causing the slippage seems to be wearing off just fine. I'll report back if I'm not completely satisfied with that feature. The student I learned about the mat from had actually stated she loved how it grabbed so I'm sure it will get there completely for me as well. The reason for my 4 stars on price is the shipping - really takes the price up a lot.

Eco friendly yet durable
I ordered this mat because my old one (same style) was about 10 years old and losing the grip. Because it served me so well, I ordered the same thing. I like the extra length and thickness. I plan to use the old mat under the dog in the car and in the garden under my knees.

This mat is amazing for many different reasons! It's lightweight, super soft to the touch, AND has superb surface grip. I feel like I am practicing on a cloud when I step onto this mat!

Perfect for Restorative Yoga
I will never use another mat for Restorative and Yin yoga! The Earth Elements' grippy, dry texture keeps me in place, while its soft cushioning is perfect for sensitive knees and wrists – especially when holding postures for longer periods of time. This mat does get slippery with sweat, but that's why I have my Para Rubber Mat for more active practices.

Fabulous mat for anyone with tender parts
I bought my first about 4 yrs ago, and have never regretted it. I have an old knee injury and it has made a huge difference for me. I use it for both yoga and pilates. It has lasted beautifully for 4+ yrs, but I never leave it in the car.

Great cushioning and nice and sticky
For past few years I've been using the Tapas Ultra Mat, but this time I wanted a mat with more cushioning but still nice and sticky. I found it in this beauty.

Soft but smelly
This mat is extremely soft but smells terrible. I have scrubbed, sprayed and showered, and the smell won't go away. It's the softest feeling. It slips a little but not too bad.

Buying a Second
I've had this mat for at least 5 years. It still looks great (no weird discoloration), doesn't smell funky, and provides the grip I need for intermediate yoga. My Husband has just started practicing and we're getting a second Earth Elements Mat for him.

Lasts a long time but not forever. That's a good thing.
I love the cushioning (no need to double up for the knees) and love, love, love the sticky dry feel. I've taken care of it - had it more than 5 years - but now it's starting to flake a bit. Time for a new one!

Great cusioning, no slip mat
I have had this mat for a couple of years now and LOVE it. What I love is that my feet don't slip, even when you start to get hot and sweaty and I love that it has extra cushion support so when you do poses with pressure on your knees/hips, your bones have enough cushion support that it doesn't get uncomfortable. I absolutely LOVE this mat and would highly recommend. I have had this mat for a couple of years and have had no problems.

Love this mat
Hi, I got this mat because I needed a non-rubber mat as I am allergic to those, and the PVC mats smell of chemicals as well. Not good when you're trying to breathe during practice! The material is also very cushiony and comfortable, and you won't slip during practice either. They don't last forever but I have no problem with that so long as HM keeps selling them. Recommend.

Beautiful biodegradable mat.
This is a great mat, especially if you're looking for an eco friendly one. Be aware, however, that it is biodegradable and must be taken care of. Do not leave it in hot cars or damp areas for too long... it will do what it is supposed to do and biodegrade. If you want something that will last longer, I would suggest one of Hugger Mugger's PVC mats.

Mat fabric crumbles where feet and hands naturally go.
I loved the look and feel of this mat, but it did not last very long as compared to other mats I've purchased for less money. I would not buy this mat again for that reason.
