Para Rubber Yoga Mat
- Product Review (submitted on June 27, 2016):
As a yoga teacher, long-time student, and former studio owner, I have tried many yoga mats. My favorites have always been wider than the average mat, but I wanted to try something with a but more cushion. When I excitedly rolled out my new Para Rubber Yoga Mat, I was disappointed by the comparative narrowness of the mat. Maybe I have been spoiled, but when I rolled up my mat and placed it upright next to three very well-rated mats from two different brands, this mat was clearly not as wide - not even close. I can't imagine someone with shoulders wider than mine being able to use this mat and optimal correct alignment.
Hugger Mugger, add at least an inch to each long edge, and you may be in the lineup for "favorite mat". The material is great (although I don't practice particularly "sweaty" yoga), and the cushion is wonderful if you need something a bit more than most mats offer. For me, though, the Para mat falls short.
