The Mat

why we made this

We're dedicated to a regular practice, so we designed this ultra-absorbent mat to help us kick some serious asana day after day. It's designed to soak up sweat and wick away moisture – so no matter how sweaty we get, we can always get a grip. We even used an antimicrobial additive to help prevent bacteria and mold from taking hold of our mat.

fabric + features

  • thin polyurethane top layer wicks away sweat and absorbs moisture to help you get a grip
  • thick base layer cushions your hands and feet
  • antimicrobial additive helps prevent mold, bacteria and fungi from taking over your mat
  • natural rubber has a slight smell, but don't worry, it fades over time (we suggest you roll it out to air it out between practices)
  • wipe your mat down with warm, soapy water or soak it after a super sweaty class
  • imported

The Mat 3.8 5 923 927
Why is everyone hating? I hesitated on getting this mat for the longest time. I read the many bad reviews and thought it was not worth the money. I got it as a gift about 2 months ago and I am in love! its cushiony and thick so my knees don't hurt. I practice bikram, so there is tons of sweat, this mat is amazing at wicking the sweat away that I don't even use a towel any more! which is absolutely amazing because that means one less thing to carry. One question lulu...how do i wash/take care of my mat? I want it to last forever. DEFINITELY BUY!! don't listen to the bad reviews, i feel like this mat is getting such a bad rep! April 23, 2015
Great so far! I bought this mat about a month ago and I am impressed with it so far! The rubber smell was overwhelming when I first unrolled it but I let it air out on my deck for two full days prior to my first use. This helped and the smell is almost completely gone now. I clean my mat after every use with warm soapy water. Sweat stains are difficult to wash and I have noticed that it marks up easily. There are a few scratches from where my toe nails have gripped and a few other marks that won't come off. I expected this though and it doesn't bother me too much. I am able to hold poses such as downward dog and warrior II without slipping at all! I also used to get very sore wrists while practicing on my previous mat and I have noticed a huge improvement with this mat. It is soft and cushiony. I haven't tested this mat with an extremely sweaty session yet as I am just getting back into my practice so I hope that it holds up! April 22, 2015
surface material melted and glued together... I heard lots of good things about this mat but for some reason, the one I got wasn't that "nice" at all. The rubber surface melted and glued together after ONE hot yoga class. I had to tear them apart and you can imagine what does it look like. I'm very disappointed. April 21, 2015
Best mat I've ever had April 21, 2015
Love The Mat at first... It took me a couple months to finally buy The Mat. I have been using the Manduka Black Mat Pro for two years and loved it but hated having to use towels during my hot yoga classes. After purchasing The Mat I finally understood what all the rave was about. The grip was amazing and allowed you to really focus on the asanas instead of constantly adjusting as you slide. The Mat absorbed any sweat and actually helped with the grip as it got wetter. However, I've been noticing that the mat is stretching out and sliding all over the floor in the studio, not only sliding up and bunching as I move, but also moving around on the floor. I adjust the mat at least 5 times throughout the class because my mat ends up slanted diagonally and bumping into my neighbors mat. I made sure to ask all the questions and get detailed care instructions when I purchased it and followed them diligently because I had such high hopes for this mat. Lululemon has never steered my wrong with their products, I've always found the quality was worth the price. I've had The Mat maybe 3 months and don't think I can safely practice on it anymore. I'm very bummed out. Maybe this is just a defect, because the reviews are overwhelmingly positive. Not quite sure what to do about this. April 20, 2015
Indecisive of my feelings. I've used the best and the worst of yoga mats. From natural rubber, to plastic and to strange foamy plastics. This falls in the middle. My personal preference is the natural rubber mat. If you're doing hot yoga you'll need a towel if you're a sweater. It's super hard to clean the sweat stains off of. It's heavy and bulky. But it's also cushiony and really grippy. The verdict is that it's a good mat, but i've replaced it many times. April 20, 2015
Great Mat, but now I'm slipping! I've had the mat for a year and a half, it was fabulous for the first year grippy and very cushiony on my knees. In the last six months I started to slip in Downdog, which is why I switched to this mat. Slipping is the worst feeling especially when you begin practice, I have to focus on my grip and not the asana. I've washed it as directed many times hoping to reclaim the grip. Is there a life span on these mats? Is it time for me to replace the mat? I was hoping for a few years out of this mat. Looking forward to your reply. April 20, 2015
The mat I loved my mat from day one. I loved that it had a strong grip and created a steady foundation for arm balancing. My issue is that the grip has diminished. And now, especially since I started practicing hot yoga, I slip so often. I have a weak left shoulder and rotator cuff which makes using the Mat difficult and sometimes even uncomfortable as I tend to slip so much. I have been considering splurging on a Manduka since they have a lifetime warranty and I've only heard good things. I still prefer the new feel of The Mat over anything any day. So here I find myself in a pickle. April 19, 2015
Disappointed I loved this mat and used it a ton when it was gifted to me for my birthday. I even learned to look past the embarrassing body outline stain I left from my sweaty Bikram classes and the slickness that often causes me to slide into SUPER wide warrior poses. But more recently the thick bottom layer started coming off onto the smooth side when I unroll it. It's like it's disintegrating? Don't know if there's something I can do to reverse this. Considering the cost of the mat I guess I expected more. April 17, 2015
Love... but slipping... I LOVE THIS MAT. I recently decided to try out this mat after using a manduka mat for the last 2 years, and was super excited because I didn't need a towel when I practiced. I was absolutely in love until I started to slip in class. I purchased this mat in January, and now it's starting to loose it's grip. I am slipping in poses like down dog and warrior 2. I used water to clean and hung it over my shower rod to dry, but that didn't seem to help. Not sure if I'll buy another one or just go back to manduka and just use a towel. April 16, 2015
