Part of practicing yoga safely means having the right, durable yoga mat to assist you in yoga poses. This mat is cushioned, and has a light-tack non-slip surface with just the right cushioning for your bones and joints. Spot clean with Gaiam’s Mat Cleaner or a damp cloth with cold water and mild detergent. Dry flat. The mat may fade and become brittle and unusable if exposed to the sun for extended periods of time. We recommend storing your mat in a mat bag when not in use.
