I like the feel of the mat. It is a little heavy and everything sticks to it- which I guess is the point- but my hair when I am lying down and anything on the floor. I will be using it at home for sure, but probably not taking it to the studio.
This mat has changed my practice! I love that I can more easily plant my hands and feet into the mat, plus my knees no longer ache in tough positions. The most surprising thing to me is that I can't cheat and drag my feet across my mat anymore. It forces me to pick up my limps and more them properly. I live my mat and already purchased one for my best friend too!
Love my mat! I am a Lincensed massage Therapist, and highly recommend lying supine on the mat for at least 20 minutes after a day of massaging or a vigorous exercise session.
This mat is exquisite, strong with wonderful acupressure bumps that really stimulate blood flow all over the body. It is a beautiful bright purple and feels clean and soft to the skin. It has a very nice quality weight and sturdiness. I now have the best mat ever. Thank you, Beth
I have practiced with the mat for 5 days. I am giving it a week for benefits of acupressure to effect my body. I do enjoy this mat, however it is not for all practices. Headstand.. no. Too thin. Great for yin and my roots class. It does feel amazing. My instructor said I sounded like an commercial talking about the benefits of this mat. Super fast shipping and, I do love what this mat has to offer.
I have two Grippz mats. The first one I brought though Amazon. I take two yoga classes a week. When I'm in class, I don't slip which big for me. The down side on most yoga mats including grippz, is that they are not thick enough for the floor. But, I solved that problem, by putting two regular matts under the grippz mat. I no longer have this fear of slipping, which is great. :) I can hold my yoga posses longer, thank you. My yoga class mates, tried my grippz, they too like grippz. I bought my second grippz mat thought your on line store. I use my second mat at home. I'm more stable in my home & class practice. Again I no fear of slipping or falling when I'm on grippz. This great mat. Namaste, Dorie
Really like the mat for its massaging effect. Helps ease stiff fascia. However, I don't like the material it is made of. Hands slide--a lot--in downdog. I thought the little spikes would prevent that. But the material is so smooth and slippery it almost makes it worse.

Feels like getting a massage while I practice.
I find that, if I don't put a yoga towel down over the mat, I start to slide around on it when my feet start to get sweaty at all. Are they meant to be used with / without a towel?
This has become my favorite mat to use during practice!! This mat is stimulating while maintaining a good level of comfort. I am very happy with it!!
love the mat! It's better than a regular mat because of the acupressure. Only drawback is walking out of yoga with the depression of them all over my body. lol.
Very stimulating mat. I love the way it feels. And it is basically non-skid! My only criticism is that it is kind of sticky and all kinds of hair and floor niblets stick to it. Not sure how to clean it - haven't tried yet, but probably will require dunking in a tub. I'd originally thought I'd use this mat outdoors on my stone patio, but decided against that because it's not as thick as I thought it was going to be plus the sticky factor.
Just received my kickstarter order today and used it immediately to teach a class. I Love the vibrant purple color and the nubs felt really great against my feet and hands. Only problem is the marks left for awhile on my exposed shins but when I cover my legs that will be fine. It's a really unique product!
I love the way it feels under my feet and against my skin. My only complaint is that it is slippery! I have to put a practice towel over it to keep from sliding and I'd rather be able to feel the sensation more intensely without the barrier.
I like the feel of the mat and that my hands and feet don't slip during poses.
I would like to know how I should clean it and what materials are used to make it.
It's much heavier than most mats. That surprised me.
The silicone material is super grippy! The mat really sticks to the floor. The pressure on your hands, feet etc is just right. The love the weight of the mat! Great product!
When I get time I will do a more thorough review for social media but all I can say it is immediately one of my favorite new items and will definitely get daily use!
I do like the mat very much, the only time I find it uncomfortable is when lying on my stomach with my head facing left or right in a resting pose. The little nodules are uncomfortable poking into my face.
I wanted to let you know that I received my Grippz Mat and I love it! I love the acupressure aspect and have really felt better and rejuvenating having used my Grippz Mat for my morning stretch/yoga/meditation the past few days.
It was a wonderful experience because I could be sure with the new yoga mat to improve my poses and progressively but quickly build my strength, flexibility, and confidence that I didn't have before. It really helps me more to create the right mood and space for a practice. In addition, this Grippz mat has another good and pleasant matter: it makes the mat a very nonslip mat and it really benefits my whole body of acupressure and a massage which relieve tension and treats some of my illness and tension while I'm doing my yoga practice. I thank-you very much of this Grippz mat which I couldn't find here in Australia.
Love the technology of this mat as well as the quality.
Would like to see a thicker version one day.
