I'm surprised round mats aren't more popular because they give you so much freedom in your practice to move any direction without thinking of the front or back. I love that this may is extra thick (I don't need a blanket under my knees any more) and that it is 6' in diameter instead of 5', which isn't quite big enough for floor practice. Price including shipping to Canada was cheaper than any other option online.

I use this on a hardwood floor at home for Tai Chi practice. It is large enough to accommodate all forms. It is well made, with just the right combination of grip and cushion.

Perfect size for yoga class on hard gym floor. No more turning around to stay on the mat. Thicker than standard mat which helps. To take to class I fold in 1/2 than 1/2 again to carry - just like it was in shipping box. Not as easy as rolled up small mat but so worth it during class. Only sorry I waited so long to order. Ordered dark blue. Go for it, you won't be sorry.

Great for Outdoor Yoga Practice
I've been taking my yoga practice outdoors onto a covered porch. This mat provides a working surface insulating me from direct contact with the porch floor. Especially nice for prone positions like twists or full body stretches where the arms extend beyond the standard mat. The mat is sometimes slippery, especially in wide-stanced poses, making it difficult to hold a pose. Placing my standard mat on top of the round one resolves the issue, as the regular mat still provides adequate traction.

I love my purple 6ft round mat!!!! I'm 5'8 and can stretch out fully during my Body Flow class. I completely recommend one of these wonderful mats to anyone!

Love the dimensions of the mat. It is too slippery for me. I have washed it with good soap and water then wiped it down with alcohol. But nothing changed. Any ideas on what else to use is welcomed because I love the mat. Also finding a carrying case or straps is hard..it is too big and clumsy without some way to carry it

I absolutely love this mat! It is durable and just the perfect size. I would definitely recommend this for anyone takeing or teaching classes :-). One thing though, the mat can be slightly slick the first go. One or two quick cleanings with the proper solution fixes this problem right up!

Makes a great gift
My husband and I were recently faced with finding a wedding gift for a couple who seemingly already had everything. Then we got the brilliant idea to send them a pair of round yoga mats in their two favorite colors. They were both a hit!
