Super smooth & nicely padded. Just what I needed!
It’s a nice mat but it’s super heavy.
I had understood that a cork mat would eliminate the slipping I experience on rubber yoga mats. The Imperial Eagle mat is even more slippery than my Manduka mat. I found I needed to repeated spray water at the top and bottom of my mat to prevent slipping while in down dog. This continually interrupts the flow of my practice. If you have advice for improving my yoga experience on this mat I'd appreciate it. Otherwise I am not sure I can continue to practice on this cork mat.
I’m going to reserve opinion a little bit longer. There is some thread fraying between the cork and the cushion. I’ve had trouble with the cushion side sliding around during certain movements. They are right about the cork and not slipping when wet. Cautiously optimistic 🤷🏼♂️
Love this mat! It’s seriously nonslip and I sweat like a beast! I’m currently also using it at home while I train with kettlebells. The length is perfect. I love that I’m practicing yoga with part of the earth. So beautiful! Highly recommend to anyone!
