Great mats for relaxation practice and mattress topper
I bought about 8 of these to use in the natural childbirth classes I tought. The pregnant ladies really appreciated them versus laying on the hard floor. Since then, I have used one as a mattress topper, and it really makes a difference. I plan to order more as toppers for my other family members.
No smell or fragrance on the mats I received, though I order them years ago.
They are bulky but roll up nicely.

Love this mat!
This mat works perfectly for me as a pad for my (very firm) organic mattress. I also plan on using it on my camping cot. The best thing about it, aside from the fact that it is organic (which is a requirement for me) is its lack of odor: no chemical smell and especially, no perfume odor - a very rare occurrence in today's odoriferous world. Thank you, YA, for keeping your facility clean and fragrance-free!

A great mat!
Love this mat! Could use it as a sleeping pad...Japanese style! For home use, would be pretty bulky to carry around to class

Not portable or versatile at all
Be careful to lay out the measurements of this. Planned to take to yoga/meditation class and fold/roll it into zabuton, bolster, etc. Instead it's HUGE, too large to use as anything other than a flat mat, and taking it to class would be like lugging around an old-fashioned sleeping bag. My mat didn't have "attached ties for easy roll-up", and the carrying strap is pretty hard to get on and off the bag. Also, the removable cover only ties on instead of zippers.

be careful before you buy!!!
the green is a dark, dark hunter green -- not lighter at all. the cover material also feels rough. and ya will NOT exchange the cover only -- (after several unanswered emails, i finally had to call them today to discuss an exchange/return) against the grain of their mission, they prefer you instead to ship back a huge, bulky, heavy item and then will re-send a different color. talk about carbon footprint! disappointed with the product and the lack of customer service.

I was very pleased with this mat. It was everything I hoped and looks like it will last a good while. Has a nice bag and the color green was better than the sample on line. Get it and you won''t be disappointed.

This mat is very comfortable for restorative yoga. I really like it and the organic cotton is soft.

A Restorative Yoga Must Have
I don''t know how I did restorative yoga before I had this mat, but all I know is that I will never use anything else and neither should you.
