I have been using a yoga pad for years, but my bones are getting old and tired, so I decided to try this mat because it had some thickness to it...and it does!! It has just enough padding so that I don't feel as if I'm on the bare floor but not too much that I slip around when sweaty. I use it on my area rug, and it does not move at all. It is a thin, oriental rug, so that may make the difference. But I did read at least one review that said it slipped on her rug - that was NOT my experience. I highly recommend this exercise mat to anyone who does pilates, yoga, stretching...I even stand on it when doing resistance training! I'm putting it through its paces and its standing up well.
I've have my Pilates reformer for over 15 years and it wasn't as tough as it used to be. I ordered the "heavier" cords and it really amped out my workout!
The Stamina Pilates Magic Circle is an excellent workout addition to anyone who does pilates or yoga. It is easy to use and the price @ Overstock.com is hard to beat. I was able to get it on sale and really am grateful that I was able to. I am sure it is much more expensive elsewhere. The Magic Circle is made of quality materials and appears quite sturdy. I have also found the Workout DVD very useful. I highly recommend this product.
