First, when I went to unroll the matt, it wouldn't unroll very well, and kept curling back up. As soon as I was on the mat, I could that all cushioning was gone, and that I might as well have sat on the floor. As soon as class started, and I was in downward dog, my hands and feet started sliding. This was happening in every pose, and I had to stop and get a matt provided by the class.
I wasn't expecting much for the price, but this was a horrible purchase. As other reviewers have alluded, this is better suited for a slip-n-slide. I cleaned it and cut it into pieces to use as lining for my closests.
I bought this mat to use with my P90X workout. After about one week the mat was already coming apart. It rips VERY easy.
I bought this mat because I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a mat, but regretted it the first time I used it. There is no padding the protect my wrists or knees on hardwood flooring, and as soon as I dropped into plank my feet slipped out from under me. Just about every position my hands and feet would slip. I have learned my lesson and will invest in a better mat even if it is more expensive.
I baught this yoga mat for my room because my sister and I turned our room into a "gym". Im not that into yoga and I dont have alot of knowledge about yoga but the basic moves that i do on it works great. I also use it for when i run in place and jump, because my room has wood floors and they make a crack noise when I jump on the wood, but with the mat it makes no noise, so thats a plus to!
I've had the green version of this mat for over a year. It has had a lot of use and has been such a great value. I've never had a problem with slipping unless I've been in a vigorous sweat inducing class & for those I started putting a towel over it to soak up the sweat & its fine. Its never ripped and it when I unroll it I put the outside face up, so it doesn't roll up (this is common sense). Yeah it doesn't have tons of padding, but if you need that then I think the smart thing to do would be to buy a thicker mat. I've only experienced discomfort in my palms when I'm holding down dog for ages, that's going to happen on any mat. If you don't want to spend a lot of money on a mat this is a great deal for the quality. If you're worried about sensitive knees or joints get something thicker.
The Danskin Now yoga mat is far from being a quality product. I purchased it for yoga class which I attend 1 -2 times a week. Several months after purchasing the mat, I started noticing small pieces of the mat pulling away from the surface. This progressively got worse and after only a few months was ready to be replaced. I returned the mat to the store where I had purchased it and purchased a different brand name yoga mat of better quality. Because of the poor durability of the Danskin Now yoga mat I would not recommend this product.
