I had been using a regular yoga mat for pilates. An instructor in a class used these special pilates mats and I decided to try one. Could be my imagination but doing pilates on this vs. my yoga mat is more fun and seems to go better. I like the extra cushioning, which seems to help me maintain core stability. Con: unlike my yoga mat, this sometimes gets a little sticky and rubs/pulls on any bare skin moving against it (such as calves), especially if itís warm and Iím outdoors.

Lightweight and thick
It is amazing how light this mat is and how easy it is to travel with because it is very thick and cushioned.

My own personal mat
I don''t like using mats that hundreds of other people have used so I set out to get my own. This one was so affordable and I can use it for not only pilates, but for yoga too. It is lightweight and easy to carry to and fro.
