For a wannabe (or authentic) yogi this is a fantastic mat. Its thick and comfy, and had a good grip. I have to admit though that this particular mat caught my eye and I couldn't look away. I think its beautiful, I love the colours and the style, so it looks good hanging out whether I'm using it or not.. my puppy Una thinks so too.
Here's the big selling point for me though, within the design there are strategic, hidden markers to help you with positioning and alignment. It removed a little bit of the 'where are my feet", ... "am I crooked?... I feel crooked" anxiety. I could glance down and see that yes, my feet are parallel.. and yes, my hands are where they should be.
The Dreamweaver Yoga Mat gave me the confidence I needed to get through my first couple of classes. I love it.. but they are just released some new designs.. I wonder if I need 2..
