Absolutely recommend this mat unless you are doing yoga in a very hot room, and sweat a lot.
I'm very pleased with this yoga mat. i use it for when i practice bikram yoga (heated to 105 degrees f), and i should add that i do not sweat as much as the average person. if i produced much more sweat, i'll be honest, i am not sure that this mat would do the trick without an additional towel placed over the top of it. the point of choosing a mat like this is to have the towel completely integrated. so, if you are like me, and do not sweat much...or if you want to use this mat to practice yoga in a room that is much cooler, i would 100% recommend it. super good value for the price, and quality of material and stitching. bottom of the mat is sticky enough to grip the floor well, so i hardly ever encounter any bunching. definitely consider choosing this mat if you practice yoga.
