This is my first yoga mat, so I have nothing to compare it to. Read some mixed reviews before I bought it, but I have used it every day for over 2 weeks now and have nothing but good things to say about it. It lies flat and isn't slippy, but I'm doing stretching exercises rather than anything aerobic. I like the thickness and the quality of it. I'm expecting it to be the only yoga mat I need to buy.
Thank you Louise, great to hear that you are happy with your PRO 6mm yoga mat. Enjoy your practice.
I like the sponginess and length of the long mat, but even after doing the salt scrub the mat is so slippery I can't use it, and I don't sweat much.
Important to note that the 30 day satisfaction guarantee refund was only a fraction of the purchase price - less than a third back.
We are sorry to hear that you are finding your PRO mat too slippery, but please be advised that the grip develops over time and with use, but once released, it lasts for a lifetime.
How long will this take? Everybody's usage is different and hence the timeframe can vary tremendously from person to person, but 8 to 12 weeks would not be unusual if the mat is only used 2 or 3 times per week.
We note that at the time of writing you have only had your new mat for 10 days, and therefore it is unlikely to have reached the optimal, and desired, level of grip.
Perseverance is key to releasing the grip, but once releasd, you will never look back!
Regarding the 30 Satisfaction Guarantee Refund - unfortunatley you had not met the terms of this offer, and therefore had not qualified for a refund. However, as we try to be as accommodating as possible, we still offered you a partial refund in good faith.
We are sorry that you have been unable to become comfortable with using your new PRO mat to date, but are confident that by following the guidleines provided to break-in your mat you will overcome the initial discomfort, and the mat will provide optimum support and comfort.
I received my Manduka PRO 6mm just as the lockdown took effect. The customer service and communication from Eco Yoga Store regarding my order was exceptional. I am extremely pleased with the colour and thickness and have used this mat numerous times whilst in lockdown. The mat is a little slippery, but I am sure once it is 'broken in' that will approve. As the Alert Levels lift my mat and I will be wandering down to my local Yoga Studio - now I just have to order a bag to get it there!
Thank you Diana, and yes, you are absolutely right, once 'broken in' you will find the grip! You can speed up the process too, by using the PRO® Salt Scrub Method:
