This yoga Mat is fantastic, but a little too nice for Yoga. I 'm going to use it in my basement but I wouldnt take it to a class because it just seems a little too nice... I'd be embatrased next to all the ecofriendlies on their Jute mats. For me though ... wow!... its cushy and soft and I'll enjoy it durring Yoga and camping. Well worth the money. If you are looking to pampery yourself or someone special get this mat!
