Premium performance.

Designed with love in Austin, TX, this beautiful mat was engineered with premium Portuguese cork. After years of teaching experience, we knew exactly what our students wanted in the perfect yoga mat: Non-slip. Just the right amount of cushion. Minimal cleaning required.

Thick is better.

We use six times more cork than your standard cork mat. That means more support during strenuous poses and more comfort doing restorative postures. It’s a smooth surface that you’ll want to lay on over and over.

Non-slip.

Go ahead and sweat buckets. Our mat gets even grippier with sweat. No yoga towel needed!

Naturally antimicrobial.

Easy to keep clean. Simply wipe down at the end of your session.Eco-friendly. Made with sustainable cork and natural rubber sourced from Gum Trees.

Non-toxic.

We use natural rubber instead of lightweight TPE, a chemically derived material found in large department stores. Performance wise, this means our mat is firmer and heavier, without the sponginess that makes it hard to balance.

Extra-large.

Our mats are longer and wider than anything else in the market. You’ll never go back to a smaller mat again.

Instantly flat.

Unrolls to a perfectly flat yoga mat every time thanks to the durable natural rubber bottom. No break-in period necessary!

Made for all practices.

Created for men and women of all experience levels and fitness background from beginners to athletes. Suitable for all styles of yoga and fitness, including hot yoga, Bikram, pilates, abs, and aerobics.

    This may is perfect for my practice. I have bought them all and this is the only one I don’t slip on in down dog during a 90 minute hot yoga session. Not spongy at all but perfect for my knees. I don’t even use a blanket for lizard or dragon anymore. Drenched in sweat it performs like a champ. It’s long enough and assists with posture and alignment using the lines. I think I’ll get a second one in case my first one ever wears out!

    It’s a great yoga mat. It’s soft and smells nice. Considering how many yoga mat reviews I’ve seen about yoga mats being smelly that is especially nice. The yoga mat does a great job of absorbing sweat so you don’t slip around when working out. It’s also super pretty 🙂 and inspires me to get onto my mat and do yoga. That to me is the best thing I can ask for from a mat. It gets me to do yoga and feel great while doing it.

    I just got it today and used it during outside yoga 93 degrees in the shade. I started with dry hands and did not slip through my entire practice. I was to the point of sweat burning they eyes but not dripping per say on the mat. I didn’t feel one bit of instability in down dog or warriors. I was surprised by the amount of “cushion”. My knees were fine in all my poses and felt really stable in balance poses. Best balance I’ve had in a while. The only downfall is that it is heavy. But that’s why I bought it. My other mats would flip around in the wind. This would have to be used for home practice. It’s kind of heavy to be lugging around to the gym. I did not notice a smell when I took out of the box but when in practice when your nose is on it or close to mat, I smelt a woodsy, earth, or leather like smell. Not offensive at all and will probably fad with use. Love the longer length too.

    I love this yoga mat!! I suppose, all other yoga mats have a weird, chemical, artificial smell due to the materials that they are made out of. THIS yoga mat doesn’t smell like anything to me which is fantastic for all forehead/face-down poses. It is also the cleanest feeling mat I’ve used. The only downside is that it is very heavy! I would not recommend this mat for taking to and from classes. If you do yoga from your home like me, I say it is definitely worth the money.

    I’ve never splurged on a mat and after ordering I had a bit of buyers remorse. “Did I really just spend $90 on a yoga mat?” and I actually was considering returning it before I even opened it, but I took it out of the box and unrolled it and WOW! You could use this thing as a bed! Obviously I’ll have to see how it holds up over the years in terms of durability, but there is no way I’m returning this thing. Has tons of cushion, but firm. Lots of grip as it is, but then I misted water on it to see how that affected it and I’m pretty much glued to the it. Great mat and super happy with my purchase

    I’ve had this mat for 4 mos. This is definitely not a travel mat. It also won’t be sticky until wet/sweaty. Still, 5 stars! Even with the above-mentioned faults, I would buy again. The cork is an excellent material to practice on and the placement lines are a welcome assist.

    I’ve been looking for a cork yoga mat for a while. I recently signed up for hot yoga and sweat like someone is pouring water on me…. This mat is perfect! It absorbs the sweat, leaves it sticky, not slippery. AND it’s large – big plus! I hated not being able to fit my whole body on a mat during certain poses. I’m so in love with this mat and you should get one!

    I highly recommend a cork mat over a rubber mat for the following reason…you cannot adjust your laying or sitting poses with a rubber mat (too much grip). You must literally pick up your leg and move it. Not ideal when you are trying to play with adjusting or strengthening your pose. The cork mat has good grip but you can also still adjust poses without rubbing the hair off your leg. If I am sweating, regular vinyasa flow or especially hot yoga, this mat is the perfect blend of comfort and non-slip. If I’m not sweating, I still prefer a regular yoga mat over either cork or rubber.

    I do like the mat. The problems are it’s pretty hard and heavy. But my hands aren’t sliding like they were and I love the design printed on it. Being fairly new to yoga, I want to have proper placement for my poses. I use it 3 times a week for about a month and it shows no wear. I do wish it was a little softer and a little lighter but it seems like it’ll last forever.

    My knees and ankles and tops of my feet are VERY sensitive and I can never do many yoga poses without a blanket underneath them for support, which is really annoying and cumbersome when trying to do moves quickly and efficiently. But this mat provides the right amount of cushioning for me, so it’s freed up my movements dramatically…the cork is very soft. I love love LOVE the lines so I can always find proper alignment, and as a guy who is 6 feet tall, I love the extra length…even when stretched over my head, my hands never fall off the mat! It’s also easy to roll up and doesn’t take up more space than a regular mat. Can’t recommend it enough!

    This is the only yoga mat I have truly loved. As a 6’3″ dude, who gets sweaty so easily, I need an absorbent mat, and also one that is long enough for my height. This mat by FAR exceeds both of those needs, and also is very aesthetically pleasing. I left it at my friend’s place by accident when I moved across country, and had to buy another one immediately. Both times that I got it, I let it sit outside for a couple days to air out the smell. I read some reviews of people saying to do that, and I would totally recommend that as well.

    This Mat is not comfortable at all. It hurts my knees very much. I flip it over and use the back of it, which is softer but also put another yoga Mat over it because it would ruin the back of the mat. Both the yoga Matt’s are from Amazon and neither are great on the knees if you have sensitive knees like myself. Also it’s not not a non slip top. You will need yoga gloves.

    Very stable mat. Very little, if any slippage during downward facing dog, an asana which I find difficult to prevent slipping in. Thus, this mat works great. Enough cushioning to be comfortable, but not so much so that you don’t feel the ground underneath you, or feel like you’re on a wrestling mat. I highly recommend.

    My last mat was 76 inches. As a 6’1 person I like the added two inches. Like the thickness. Not so certain it’s sweat proof. That is to say, I slipped once, but only once, so I cannot say for sure. I used this for a slow yoga day and a Ashtanga primary series day, and I like the lines. If you have adhd or a similar disorder involving executive function disorder, the lines help

    I recently set up a home gym with a dedicated spot for yoga/stretching. Decided to get a yoga mat that would stay put and was a bit thicker/sturdier than the ones I already had. I also needed something that would grip well and not slide around on my wood floors (which the others both have a tendency to do). This mat exceeded my expectations in every regard. It’s very well built, thick and comfortable (I have bad knees and it’s significantly easier on my joints than the previous mats), and grips very well even on slick floors. Lastly it just looks great, and is a very nice addition to the space.My one word of caution is that it’s heavier than a normal yoga mat and does not roll up as small. So maybe not the best choice for hauling back and forth to the yoga studio, but since mine stays put it’s no problem.

    This mat provides stability and grip and prevents my sweaty hands and feet from sliding. My husband bought it for me for Christmas. Since then I rarely use any of my others mats. But, I’m so fond of this one I don’t want to take it to the park for my outdoor practice:):):)

    Loves: Love the heavy weight & thickness, excellent pose lines (!), width, length, it does not smell, it lays flat from the get go, it will not slide on wood floor. Dislikes: In my low humidity environment it is slick and I have to stop and spray with water. It is winter here, so perhaps in the spring it will get better. I also could not do some stretches poses where the bones in the top of my feet were digging into the cork – I had to pad my feet (tops and ankle bones) which I did not have to do with my cheaper, thinner, non cork covered mat. I think this is a great mat overall – especially if you are not in a low humidity environment. I was shocked so many people said it had great grip, so it must be a humidity issue… Very well built. It is a pleasure use!

    My new cork mat is superb for doing yoga at home. I use it on the wooden floor. The bottom side is rubbery and stays put on the surface. The top cork side has a pleasant dry feel and provides strong grip even when I’m sweeting. The mat is thick and supports men’s weight nicely.It is not $ cheep and on a heavy side that could be an issue if you need to carry it with you to yoga studio. We are still in the midst of COVID and my mat is not going anywhere…By the way, the company behind the mat is about yoga for men. They focus on strength, focus, and mobility (male flexibility ;). I’ve been doing it for a couple of weeks now and starting to see results. Their yoga is less stretchy (than typical female ones) and causes no lingering hip and join pains (I used to have).

    I purchased this for my mother for Christmas. She’s a huge yogi & her old Mat was ragged & ugly. I read reviews and was excited to get her one she truly deserves. She loved unboxing it, but after a few sessions of yoga, she was not happy with the results. She claimed to be slipping & I didn’t believe her, but she showed me & her bare foot was sliding as she posed. It’s pretty unfortunate, but I will be returning

    Excellent mat!
    I was quite dubious about buying this mat at first. It’s quite a thick mat but being 6 foot 3 I couldn’t find many mats that I could actually fit on. But with the 9 month satisfaction guarantee I thought I would give this a go.

    Yes it is a little bit heavier than your usual yoga mat but this product is amazing. The grip underneath is immense and it’s cushions you comfortably without you feeling like you have sunk into it. Will definitely be telling my friends about this.

    The free videos that you get access to are really helpful and insightful. Do not regret this purchase at all. It’s the best mat I’ve ever used!

    Outstanding mat
    Bought this to replace an old cork yoga mat that I bought years ago from a different company as I liked the non-stretch, non-slip nature of cork matting. The BBY Cork mat is definitely way better and takes cork yoga mats to another level. It is wider, longer and has more cushioning (see photos). The slightly textured surface gives a better grip than smooth cork and is easy to clean if you follow the instructions.nullnull

    Fun yoga & results = a long, firm, thick and slick free MFY mat!
    I am one of the Dean mat’s biggest fans Having taken yoga classes in the past in a studio and more recently, at home via Dean’s courses during the pandemic, I realized that a mat makes a difference! The MFY mat’s length accommodated my 6’2” physique easily for certain full body length postions (e.g. cobra, locust, pigeon or dolphin). I had never thought about it before, but the markings on the MFY mat ensured that my foot/feet position(s) was correct for various movements, which I realized matter for good technique and injury prevention . The stability and thickness of the mat was also impressive. It was not until I got the MFY mat that I realized that I did not have to slide on the mat when I started to sweat, nor did I need a towel for my knees, because the mat was firm and comfortable. It took me a bit to purchase, because I thought I was “all set”;with my current mats; however, theMFY mat has made doing classes even more enjoyable and I glad I made the decision to purchase!

    I’ve had my mat for almost a year now-replacing a rubber mat which was too slippery-it has been an excellent purchase. It is long enough for me at 6’4″ and wide enough for all the yoga requirements. It is attractive with nice designs which help with positioning and angles that are important for proper posture during yoga sessions. The work is nice to the touch and it prevents slipping. Would very much recommend this product.

    Quality is exceptional
    I purchased this mat from Dean and could not be more pleased. The quality of the mat is exceptional. The markings on the mat are extremely useful during routines, especially to a newcomer like myself. Previous to buying this mat I had been using a foam mat which was too small and stuck to the bottom of my feet. This mat is so large and so thick. It has improved the effectiveness of my workouts. I can not recommend it enthusiastically enough.

    I have hardwood floors at my apartment and they’ve been refinished SEVERAL times aka theyre old and very slippery/worn with use. My old mat was A) too short and B) would slide all over the floor like you wouldn’t believe. Being 6′ tall, and with this mat being 84″ long, I can lie down comfortably without being off either end and still have room to work. The rubber base (?) is beyond comfortable and doesn’t slip all over the place! I was a little skeptical honestly considering the price tag but if you practice yoga at all regularly it’s definitely worth the investment!! I use it practically every day!

    This matt is great because it is so easy to clean! I swear a lot when I am doing yoga and other mats just start to get funky quick. I have had this mat for about two months and it is so easy to clean and dries really quick. I have bad knees and it is thick/comfortable enough for most asanas. Only downsides are that it is pretty heavy, so it works for my at home practice but I kept my old smelly one for going out. It also smells like rubber at first but that goes away quickly after leaving it laid out for a few days.

    slippery after perlonged use
    Initially I loved this mat. I’ve used it almost every day for the last nine to ten months. After six months of wear it has become a bit slippy under my feet. This is not good for practice.

    This mat has a good grip (I get sweaty doing yoga and on some mats slip) and a perfect compromise of being solid and cushioned. Being a touch thicker it doesn’t roll as well as some, so isn’t my first choice for taking to a yoga class, but it is my first choice for using at home.

    Great mat- comfort and beauty all in one!
    Loving my new cork yoga mat! The design is beautiful and the guide lines are actually very helpful. The cork surface is both comfortably cushiony to practice on and grippy enough that I feel secure. I have only been using it for a couple of months, so time will tell how it wears. So far well worth the money!!

    This is by far the best cork mat I’ve used!1) The thick natural rubber offers great support for my knees. Support is the keyword. If you are looking for a very cushiony mat for your knees to sink into, this is not the mat for you.2) The cork layer feels much thicker and more durable than any other cork mat I’ve used. It creates a very stable surface. For me, this mat has the perfect balance between knee support and stability for standing balances.3) THE GRIP! I feel this mat truly provides a perfect grip. I say perfect because I experience no sliding but also never feel like I’m sticking either. I find that this mat provides great grip even when my hands/feet are completely dry.4) The mat has no smell.5) The length of this mat is great for taller yogis. I’m 5’11” and love that I can do nearly every yoga pose without my arms or legs stretching beyond the length of the mat.6) I love that this mat is 100% eco-friendly!The one issue I had with this mat is that the ends curled a bit and didn’t lay completely flat upon opening. This issue did correct itself and the mat now lays completely flat after about a month of daily use and rolling up the mat inside out. I’m assuming this was just due to the mat being rolled up tightly in the amazon warehouse for awhile. Still give the mat 5 stars since this was only a temporary issue.

    I spent more on this than I ever expected to spend on a yoga mat, but I have to say, it’s worth it. It’s longer than it needs to be (at least for me – I’m 5’8″, but I appreciate not having to consciously “work within the mat”) and it’s also thick and seems durable. It’s also thick and comfortable underfoot, for the balancing poses.

    All-around, ankle-saving exercise mat
    I work out at home almost exclusively these days, and my years-old yoga mat was garbage at providing cushion for high-impact activity. This mat was given to me as a birthday gift. HIIT, strength training, yoga, pilates, core work–you name it, this thing will support you and cushion your impact. I don’t even work out in shoes anymore, the stability is so good. No rolled ankles here! And the extra-large size means I can stretch out without getting sweat all over the floor. I love that its made with environmentally-conscious products. Honestly, I can’t think of a better mat. Very satisfied customer. 🙂

    This mat looks great at first sight, but after using I’ve noticed its not slip resistant. My hands are slipping in a down dog without even sweating. It is also not very comfortable unless I use it on carpet. It hurts my spine and hips during poses like “happy baby” and “reclined twists”. I was very disappointed since it was nearly $100.

    So far so good. I have not had any issues with this mat. I’m tall so it works well in that area and the lines help me to position myself correctly. My wrists are also much happier during planks and downward dog and other poses. I have not received anything that I didn’t like from Body By Yoga thus far.

    The length of the mat
    I’ve only used the mat for 6 days but I enjoy the fact that it is 80 inches in length and it’s 2 inches wider than my old yoga mat. I’m 6’3″ tall the mat being 80 inches in length is a big plus for me. The mat has more cushioning than my old mat helps cushion my knees and the cork covering so far have had no issues with slipping. I will order another one when this one wears out.

    Great cork mat for traction, and knee cusion.
    For a cork mat, it allows great grip even when dry. Love the extra length. The main reason I got it wasI was having a lot of knee discomfort on my previous mat, the added thickness that is just form yet just soft enough is perfect for when doing poses where a lot of pressure is put on my knees. The mat is rather heavy, but not prohibitively so.

    Solid investment, great gift, comfortable design
    The decision to purchase this mat was an easy one given the others I’ve had over the years tend to cause slipping and distraction during my practice. A great piece of advice, if you plan to use anything regularly don’t go cheap or inexpensive. First day on the mat was amazing! After dripping sweat everywhere I had no issue with slipping during long poses or with grip. Another favorite is the markings throughout as they help me correct my form and make sure there is balance to each side. The bottom feels like a durable mouse pad which won’t move anywhere. The thickness is helpful for when my knees can’t handle the ground below me. Don’t forget to look at the cleaning and care tips from the company website as it’ll help it last much longer!

    Rare size. Non slip. Dense heavy luxury feel.
    There are only two cork mats large enough for a tall person and this is one of them. I gifted one a few months ago, tried it, couldn’t stop borrowing it, and have been waiting impatiently ever since for it to be in stock again so I can get one for myself. It doesn’t slip at all when I’m in a spread leg stance of any kind. It’s super dense thick and heavy and rare in this size. Love it.

    I’ve purchased many yoga mats over the years, and I love this Luxury Cork Yoga Mat the most! I was particularly tired of my mat stretching/moving underneath of me in many poses, and I desperately wanted to find a mat that I could hold Down-Dog on without sliding forward. After many hours of research, I came across this mat and compared it with highly rated options from many different sites and articles. I chose the Luxury Cork Yoga Mat for many reasons, but here are the things I like most about it:1) It is naturally antimicrobial and does not have a “smell” like other mats do.2) It has great grip and doesn’t slide on carpet, hardwood, grass…you name it…it stays put.3) The thickness of the mat supports me during balancing poses and supine positions. Aka some thicker mats allow too much “give” and can make it difficult to balance, but the cork is sturdy yet forgiving when I’m laying down. It’s supportive and comfortable.4) I DON’T SLIP IN DOWN-DOG. My palms and feet naturally sweat, and even on days when they don’t, I’m still able to press into this mat without sliding forward. If you have “drier” skin and find that you slip, you simply just spray the mat with a little bit of water. The cork absorbs the water and becomes easier to grip.5) The mat rolls up and out with ease.Downsides:1) This mat is on the heavier end. While this doesn’t bother me at all, it could be a factor for others.2) I really wish it came with a carrying strap, especially because it is heavier than other mats.Overall, I would highly recommend the mat!

    No more pain!
    I was using a cheap yoga mat and my knees and toes always hurt and would always have to adjust some position if I didn’t start the move in the right place of the mat but all of that is now gone. The extra length gives me enough room to never “run out of mat” and the pain in my knees is gone (the toes are still week LOL) as the padding makes it feel like you are in memory foam compared to the other one.
    A bit on the expensive side but worth every penny!!!

    This is one of the only mats I could find that was extra long/wide, made with cork, and had alignment lines. I have been using the mat daily for the past couple of weeks and really like using it for my practice. I have heard that people thought the mat had slip issues but if you properly wet the mat beforehand (or are super sweaty like me) it’s not an issue at all. Even though the mat is thicker than most, the thicker layer or cork helps it feel more form and stable while not crushing your hands and knees. The mat is very heavy compared to other mats So just don’t plan on taking this thing on a hike with you or anything.A few knocks I have against the mat a) for the price, I felt that it should have at least come with a cheap strap b) although the thicker cork makes the user experience much nicer, I have noticed that the edges can chip kind of easily if you aren’t careful unrolling the mat (which can be difficult due to the weight of the mat). So i am curious how it will hold up over the long run C) I am not a huge fan of the image in the center of the mat and wish they offered other design options for the full alignment mat.Overall— if you are looking for a good quality, larger cork yoga mat, I don’t think you can go wrong with this product. It also comes with some additional discounts on some of their other products. I have yet to purchase any but I am a big fan of Dean’s free videos on YouTube (definitely should check them out)

    Pros: super long for tall people. Cork feels great on my feet. My feet are normally moist, and I hate feeling them get sticky on a foam mat. That being said I rarely notice any slippage on this mat.Cons: As thick as this is, it could be just a bit softer. As long as it is, it could be just a bit wider.Smell: I seriously hate chemical odors, but this mat does not really trigger that feeling. It does have a slight odor from the rubber, but it is not that offensive for exercise use. Maybe it is a more natural formulation of rubber? The cork has a bit of odor, but I actually like it. Probably because of the natural material. I tend to like “wood based” essential oils too.

    Very heavy mat. Also not for hot yoga. Very slippery. Slipping when I do down dog and warrior 2. you definitely need yoga mat towel for this but then what’s the purpose of buying this with ’Built-in Pose Alignment lines’ if I need a none slip towel over it?

    My wife loves it. Yes this mat is big. My wife is tiny and it still works perfect with the lines.Yes this mat will slip the first few times and you’ll need to lightly spray with water. After you break it in, it won’t slip. So far it’s been durable after a couple weeks of daily use.

    This is a Fantastic yoga mat! It lives up to it’s name as a Luxury Cork Yoga Mat. This mat is much thicker than any yoga mat i have ever used before. The mat is not squishy, but solid and firm with a great deal of cushioning. I did not have to use a towel under my knee! The mat has a great grip to the floor, It does not move once you put the Mat down. I love the length and width of the mat. If you are looking to invest into your over all good health, I would highly recommend this Mat! Treat yourself! You are worth it!

    I’m new to this whole yoga thing. The mat is really comfortable for me, at least so far. I practice on a tile floor that’s not super even, and this mat does a great job of cushioning and making the imperfections of the floor not especially apparent. The rubber and cork both feel really durable and high quality. I also really like the larger size of it — it fits me pretty well! While it seemed like a bit of a splurge, it’s the kind of thing that I’m sure will prove to be totally worth it down the road.

    A lot of students at the yoga studio asked me about this mat. Since it’s 4 months I bought this, durability is yet to be known. It’s almost as thick as Manduka mat. As the grip is firm, I like the convenience of not using another layer of cloth. Since I use it for hot yoga, I let it dry after each class. Cleaning is still an unknown, I have used dish soap water once, but no visible difference. This is an expensive mat and I expect to keep it for a while. I appreciate if the manufacturer can provide some guidance on cleaning.

    The plug and play of yoga mats

    Having brought standard foam mats up to now this mat was a revelation. The sturdy cork and rubber based mat is very comfortable to use and be on. The extra size really helps you stay fully on the mat and the cork provides a firm nonslip surface. But it’s the markings which will take your poses to a new level. On normal mats you can do warrior pose and think you are ok but having the markings to guide positions and help line up meant I really felt the full benefit. There is online links from the supplier to videos to help show how to use the markings to help you maintain the correct position. If you have attended yoga class you will know the difference when a teacher has corrected a position. This mat and it’s built in guidance gives that discipline to my training at home and I know I get far more out of the routine I do at home than I ever did using a foam mat. It’s also very comfortable just to lie on after and relax. Recommended

    Love this mat, have been using it for a month and can tell a difference in my poses due to it not slipping. The lines are really helpful too. My only complaint, which is minor, is that the logo is super ugly! Did not notice it in the pictures, but it’s BIG and on both sides of the mat.

    If you have bad knees, this is a life saver! As far as for yoga it’s a nice cushion for your hands and wrists specially as a beginner when you’re still trying to get that alignment correctly. Amazing texture, love the cork. Lots of grip. And it’s really long for those that are taller.Just FYI it’s really heavy. Like REALLY heavy lol I guess it doesn’t matter if you keep it at home but it’s definitely not a travel mat. Also the extra thickness does affect balance a bit but you can always step off the mat for some balancing poses.

    How do I get to the free classes?
    I received this mat for Christmas, brought it to my yoga class and loved it! My yoga instructor even stopped by to see what type of mat I was using. The only problem I seem to be having is when I try to find the “free” Classes and sign up for my 1- year warranty. The email address on the packaging brings me to Amazon, but I see no links. I read all the reviews and no one mentions anything about the classes or posture tutorials. If someone can help me I would greatly appreciate it.

    I got this mat because of the size. It’s perfect size for me. But that’s it.It’s expensive.It is a heavy mat, not something to carry around.It’s thick but not soft, I still have to use blanket for my knees or when doing vertical exercises. My bony figure needs softer cushioning.Grip? Hmmm my hands are slipping and sliding for down dog, so I am not too happy about that. But it has a great grip on the floor, it would not move ones you put it down. I can’t just pull on one side and adjust it, I have to lift the mat of the floor to position it.I was told it may get softer with use over the years so I am looking forward to using it for many years and hoping it will have a long lifespan.Would I recommend it? I don’t know, depends of your priorities.

    Highly recommend it if you are doing hot yoga! Its been a week I am using it and hope the mat stay the same over time. Let’s see!

    Best Yoga Mat
    Purchased this and within two sessions noticed a big difference in how the grip and lines, provided on the mat, have helped me to develop better poses. Yoga programmes, that I have previously done, I have found that with the new mat have improved my participation and I am getting more from them as a result. Certainly worth the additional cost in comparison to cheaper substandard mats. Would definitely recommend to anyone serious about yoga.

    Wish I’d bought it sooner
    I hesitated paying this much for a yoga mat, but the moment I took it out of the box, I could tell it was worth every penny. This is not a yoga mat, it is a yoga yacht. Nice heft (this isn’t a travel mat), probably best for home use, though you could lug it to class. Generous proportions, it helped me redefine my yoga space. Firm but cushioned, very stable and comfortable whether you’re balancing on one leg or laying across your knee. The lines make transitions a breeze and inspire you to go deeper and rediscover the poses. The right balance of grip and slip, no need to manage messy towels regardless the temperature and humidity level. Smells good too. After a long period of sloth, I’m motivated to recommit to my practice simply by wanting to spend time on this mat.

    I really wish I didn’t have to return this mat. It’s got great support, the non slip is amazing (I’m definitely getting another cork may after this), and the alignment marks are wonderful. But if you are short like me, go with another mat. In DownDog I can barely reach the inner most alignment marks. So I have to return it.

    I no longer have to put a towel down when doing yoga, I love that. I was slipping on the regular rubber mats whenever sweat got on them, but this doesn’t do that. It’s more supportive under my wrists too, they don’t hurt when doing more difficult poses. It’s heavy tho, it’s not something I would carry around, I just use it at home but I am very happy with it.

    Excellent mat
    This is the best yoga mat I’ve used. It is thick enough to be comfortable for almost any pose. The claim that it’s no-slip is accurate. Finally, the lined cork surface is great for proper alignment. If you’re into yoga, this mat is for you. Just beware, the solid construction makes it heavier than most mats. Small price to pay.

    I purchased this mat for so many reasons- like I’m a 6 foot tall woman- and I’m 93% happy I did. I’ve used it every day for the last month and I’m keeping it. The materials are environmentally friendly, but it’s also made outside the USA so… almost there. I do love the alignment lines! I’m still wobbly in hardcore balancing poses – possibly the extra height from the rubber? But woohoo the extra padding has solved the constant bruises on my knees from my old crappy mat. And learning how to keep the mat properly wet during a class is not easy. I use a spray bottle of water but you can easily spray too much and then it’s hard to balance on. Work in progress. It is, however, super awesome in that it absorbs all of my sweat. I still slip on it a little here and there, but I think that’s because I’ve added too much water and then added a ton of sweat. It is heavy, but I’m taking it to exercise…? Overall a solid mat, would definitely recommend!

    This is quite simply the best yoga mat that I’ve ever laid my creaky knees on. OK, it’s a bit more expensive than some other options, but considering the amount of time you could be rolling around on this then it seems a reasonable price to pay. It’s firm, but soft, long and wide, and reassuring thick. Yes, I’m still talking about the Yoga mat. Very happy with this purchase.

    I’m 6’4”, and it’s hard to find a good yoga mat that isn’t 150 bucks. this mat is amazing. it’s 80 inches long and 26 wide, that’s better than most all other manufacturers. unless you get into the highest end mats around 150-200 dollars, you won’t find any other this size. and the quality is amazing. the cushion is excellent, and i’m a bony dude without any cushion of my own. the grip is great, although using any cork mat in a cold dry environment will cause grip issues. if you do hot yoga, or you sweat profusely doing minimal exertion like me, then this mat will be perfect. otherwise, in downward dog, if you’re slipping, breathe hot air on your hands, you won’t slip anymore. also, use more lotion, if you’re slipping on this mat you’ve probably got really dry hands.Seriously, BUY THIS MAT YOU WONT REGRET IT!!!

    It seems to be worth the money.
    I’ve had the mat for just over a month now and have been using it every day. Wanted to give it a bit of use before leaving a review. Intial impressions are great. It’s nicely packaged. Unsurprisingly, it smells strongly of cork but this smell has since faded. I’m new to yoga and my initial mat was bought from TK Maxx. No frills. I’m 6 foot and 14 stone and the extra size offered by this mat was what interested me. The posture alignment lines are handy enough and there are materials made available by the manufacturer to help get the best out of these. You can see from the pictures just how much thicker and longer this mat is compared to my old one. This is why I bought the mat. Cleaning and care instructions are offered by the manufacturer and I’m hopeful that this mat will prove a worthwhile investment.

    This is my second cork mat. The first was a 24″x72″ 5mm thick matt that I have used for the last year and a half plus. It has been a great mat and is the reason I decided to purchase another cork mat.After researching new matts and seeing all the great reviews of this one I made my choice. The Body by Yoga matt is exceeding my expectations. The noticeably thicker and higher quality cork surface is smooth and has excellent grip. I do a lot of hot yoga and the matt can get quite wet. No problem with this matt, the damper it gets the more it grips.The extra thickness is really nice. Most thick matts are spongy and just don’t feel stable. This is the exception. The base is firm yet gives extra padding and support in poses on the knees or poses where the ankles take some pressure like frog. No spongy give when in balance poses like tree or warrior III.The extra inches are great as well. I was constantly having to readjust even on my old 72″ matt as my feet or head were just at the edge of the matt. This has cured that issue.The rubber backing rolls out flat as advertised. No curling or rolling up when you head into practice. The NEW odor of the matt was gone in about a day so no breathing of synthetic rubber chemicals for days after purchase.Overall this is a great matt. Highly recommended for anyone, especially those who prefer cork and are looking for a new and better matt. The full 1 year warranty when registering is a great comfort. I don’t anticipate any durability issues with this matt as my old lower quality cork matt held up for a long time but it’s great to know that these people have my back if I have any issues with the matt.At $90 it’s not cheap but if it lasts twice a long and is safer, more comfortable and helps to improve your practice how can you argue with paying a bit more? It’s a no brainer in my opinion.

    Best. Mat. EVER.
    This. Is. The. Best. Yoga. Mat. Ever. EVER. I have been through at least 10 mats trying to find one that is non slip (not just non slip for a few practices.) I practice Baptiste Power yoga every day for at least an 75 minutes. This mat has seriously blown me away. I do not slip in a single pose. I actually feel like I can trust my mat. I feel secure and able to completely focus on what I am supposed to be doing… not constantly adjusting myself because of how I am slipping. Thank you SO MUCH for creating this yoga mat…. It has taken my practice to a level I never knew I could go. Thank you!!!!

    I have started back to Yoga and was finding that the mat that I had was too short and my feet or head was at one time or the other on the floor. I looked for or a longer mat to correct this problem. I came across the present mat and found that it would be long enough…However, I was not to sure on the “Cork” part. I did some reading on the cork and from what I could see it was suppose to work well. I also noticed that the company that was making this mat related that they stood behind the mat with a money back guarantee!! Sooooo I took a chance and it has really paid off. The mat is very grippy and stable. I do sweat and I have not “slid” as of yet. The only thing is that it is HEAVY!! I guees in life you cannot have everything!! The heavy part is not really a problem with me, and as far as I am concerned it is a small price to pay to keep my feet and face off the floor!! I also like the lines so that I know where I am at. I would definitely give this Mat a 5 out of 5. I have also had several people ask me where I gotten it from…

    Best Yoga Mat Ever Created!
    Best yoga mat ever purchased! It is truly anti-slip, as I don’t even need a towel any longer to absorb any sweat. And, I no longer need blocks under my knees during lizard stretch, runner’s lunge, or half splits. It is super comfortable and the size is perfect for a 6’1 guy where I am no longer hanging off the mat during floor poses and stretches. Thanks for making such a wonderful product. My yoga class was intrigued by my cork mat and all wanted to test it out. I gave them all instructions on how to order them online on Amazon.

    Not for everyone
    Body by Yoga’s may be too thick if with a yoga towel.

    It’s xl which I was not expecting but I also didn’t read it clearly. This mat is the best though. Super grippy. VERY HEAVY though. Walking up three flights to my studio with it is a workout of its own but would def recommend. Shows all of your sweat but it’s a work out class so no big deal.

    So far I LOVE IT!!Only downside so far is that it’s extremely heavy.. but I was prepared for this because I read other reviews.still breaking it in, so I will add more as I have used it more. 😁

    There is no unpleasant smell in this mat. I bought the one that came with markings for alignment which is extremely useful. Not slippery.It is not completely cork though. The top layer(thinner) is cork and bottom layer(thicker) is rubber.

    I like the length, provides space for those crowded classes. But the cork gets really dirty quickly, I have been using it 3 times a week in heated sweaty classes for less than 2 months and it already has significant grey-black areas at both ends of the mat. It’s not as grippy as I hoped, I’ve used jade and lulu lemon in the past, it has slightly better grip than jade for heated classes( but jade isn’t made for heated yoga) but not as good as lulu lemon. And for non heated classes it’s not very good grip. I wouldn’t buy it again, and am already looking for a new mat. I will steer away from cork in the future. But the padding is substantial, although not that comfortable. This may be an awesome mat for those who like cork mats, but if you like natural rubber or the grippy surface of lifeforme or lulu , look else where

    Expensive, but if you like this sort of thing, it delivers.I’ve used for about 20 sessions and it is not showing any wear.

    You get what you pay for and this is proof of that fact. I’m new to yoga so it may have seemed silly to splurge on such a high quality, top end item, but being a 6’4”, 200 lb man I wanted to ensure maximum comfort through my learning curve. This yoga mat surely does not disappoint, it’s remarkably comfortable, aesthetically pleasing, and it gives me ample room to maneuver around whilst always staying firmly planted on the mat. You’ve made this beginner very happy, and now I look forward to my daily routine every morning, thank you for making such a quality product!

    I am super excited to get on this mat every day! It doesn’t get slippery when I’m dripping sweat all over it, it has an excellent firm cushion for my hands, knees, and feet, and the price is better than many other cork mats. The extra length is an Awesome bonus too! I highly recommend this mat to anyone that wants to up their yoga practice! you won’t have to worry about slippin’ and losing your balance going from posture to posture any more!

    This is close to the perfect mat. It’s longer than any may I’ve had. It’s thick so my knees never hurt. It will never slide. I love it! The reason I gave four stars: 1. The top side grip is not as ironclad as I would like, and 2. it’s heavy when you’re carrying other stuff. I have kids and when I’m carrying them and the mat it gets to be too much. That being said, everybody else in class wants one now and it is PERFECT for home use.

    Loved the size. I’m 6’2” and most mats have me hanging off the ends, so this is perfect. The cushioning, sweat absorption, and overall product design is the best out of any yoga mat out there. A MUST have for your fitness and yoga needs!

    Still new to the mat, but the cushion and real estate is incredible. The surface is a little slick with dry hands, But that ceases once they get a little sweaty.

    I’m very happy with my mat so far! I purchased a few other bands of mats and had to return because of smell issues or to thin. No smell issues with this one and the thickness is good. A little more then what I wanted to pay for a mat but worth it!

    I slipped and slipped and slipped. Defective mat don’t waste your time buying, and I spent extra time & gas driving it back to the UPS store for a refund.

    I was looking for a cork mat that would not slip. First couple times it was nice and sticky but after that I had lots of slippage

    This mat is just what I was looking for. I’ve had many of the mandukas, a Jade mat, lululemon mats and many others. So far this is my favorite straight out of the box…very its very long, thick but not insanely so, very supportive, smell free and the alignment markers are nice. The cork is attractive and so far no slipping! I still need to try it out in a heated class, but for my in-home morning practice its been a dream.

    I wondered if this mat was really worth the price. It is! It’s a thick mat yet I always feel stable in any pose.It rolls up easily but lies flat when rolled out. There are pose lines printed on it to help line up feet and hands.It’s very well made and I think it will last a long time.

    I ordered the regular length mat to try it out. What arrived is a size for a giant human.
