I could not be more excited about this Manduka yoga mat that I got at my studio last night. It's biodegradable, costs just $36, weighs less than 2 lbs., and folded to fit inside my purse. Best of all - it is super sticky. I didn't slide ANYWHERE - even when breaking a sweat.
Although it is really thin - I think it will be perfect to put on top of my fatter yoga mat during my practice - which is starting to flake in places.
The thicker yoga mats are much too cumbersome to take with you on vacation if you like to pack light - so I am loving the idea of being a fully prepared nomadic yogi. And this is small enough that it will be easy to wash.
