I Loved Yoga, Just Not My Mat
Yoga became my guiding light during a transformative journey, rescuing me from panic attacks.
It taught me presence and the art of silencing racing thoughts.
As my frustration grew with subpar yoga mats that faded, peeled, emitted odors, or caused slips, I embarked on a journey to create something truly exceptional...
I tried them all, Manduka, Lululemon, and Jade, I aimed to discover the perfect blend of quality and innovation.
Unsatisfied with the available options, I went even further, all the way to Germany, yip, Germany - collaborating with manufacturers specializing in products for the airline and space industries.
A mat designed to endure for a century with an unparalleled grip – a testament to my commitment to providing a mat that exceeds expectations.

it’s a Christmas gift so hasn’t been used yet
Used a few times now and I'm really happy with it. No smell of chemicals and made well
I've been using this mat for 5 consecutive days since I received it after I had to exchange the color. The customer service was excellent through the whole process of returning and re-shipping. They continously kept me posted about the current status until the final delivery. I love this mat. It was worth waiting. It is soft and sturdy with good grip, I feel safe when I use this mat knowing it is made of safe materials to touch with my bare hand and body compared to the ones that I had been using for several years without knowing how much they might have had ⁰been harmful. I totally recommend this mat to anyone who wants to feel being care for and safety for one's precious body.
I just received my mat. Shipping was fast and I love the heavy duty tube it comes in. Mat has a sticky texture even though it’s not the hot yoga grip version which is good since I sweat a lot. I teach several classes a week and so far so good! Easy to clean, thick and kind on joints, feels sturdy! I’m looking forward to not having to replace my mat as often. ❤️
How much difference could a premium yoga mat possibly make, right?? That's what I thought too, but I couldn't believe how pleasant it was to use this mat! I didn't slip all over the place and constantly have to move my mat, because this mat STICKS and stays FLAT no matter what. It was the perfect mix of firm and cushy. And my favorite part - all the cat hair my yoga buddy got on it wiped off in one effortless swipe!! And this is saying a lot because everything I own, including ME, is covered in cat hair at all times. I'm thoroughly impressed and I could never go back to those AWFUL Amazon mats!
I love the thickness of the mat, however I’m disappointed with the mat because I think I bought the wrong one. I teach and practice hot yoga every day and so far, I’ve been slipping during my practice. Wish I knew ahead of time that there was a different mat for hot yoga classes.
From grip to thickness to size this has been a perfect mat for my daily practice.
A very sturdy mat that I have now used almost daily for a couple of weeks. A slight plastic smell that seem to be abating. Firm enough for standing poses, soft enough for comfort. Alex, the owner was responsive and helpful with my questions. I look forward to years of regular use. 5 stars
I have used this mat for 3 consecutive hot yoga classes and this is the best mat I have used over my 15 years of practice. The thickness is perfect as well as the firmness. Lots of sweat already and this mat hasn't blinked. I couldn't recommend a mat more.
I love this mat. The grip is very strong and there is no sliding whatsoever. It is also lighter than I anticipated. As stated in their ad, there is no smell of rubber and there is no need to treat this mat to help the grip. It was ready to go, when I received it with no issues. It also arrived ahead of schedule.
I was so excited to receive my new yoga mat in the mail. I love the packaging, it comes in a beautiful quality circle box that makes the yoga mat easy to store and of course, I love my new mat! I used to use a lululemon yoga mat or a cheap one at the studio. Since I've been using the Rock Leopard yoga mat, the experience is one I haven't had before. The mat doesn't smell! Unlike lululemon or a cheap mat which smells of toxic fumes especially when I'm doing poses that require me to have my face on the mat. I find myself holding my breath so I don't have to inhale the toxic fumes on the other mats but with Rock Leopard I can fully breathe and inhale through my poses without worrying about toxic smelly fumes. My new yoga mat is also so COMFORTABLE! Like a dream to do yoga with. That 5.5mm ± 05mm has definitely been designed with comfort in mind, protecting the joints indeed. A different experience compared to the two other mats I've used before. The grip is also very good. What I really liked was that the mat fit my length. I am 5'7 tall and found I wasn't having to constantly adjust to stay on the mat, in fact I had plenty of yoga mat space which was really nice. Overall I am a very happy and satisfied customer with my new Rock Leopard yoga mat. I also have other yoga students inquiring about my new mat too. The only thing that may be a drawback is that I do not have a car and have to walk 20 minutes uphill to yoga sessions so it can be a bit heavy to carry, but if one has a car then it's no problem at all.
I shared my new yoga mat with my brother for him to try it out and this is what he had to say:
"So I have been using the rock leopard yoga mat for the last week and I have to say I am so excited that I have found a replacement to my old mat, from lululemon. I had the other mat since 2020 and one thing that always bothered me about it was how much it stank like chemicals. I loved everything else about it but I could never get over the smell of toxic fumes as I placed my face close to the mat. When I started using the rock leopard mat I was a bit sceptical as so many other mats I had used were often too slippery or felt cheap in comparison to the one from lululemon. I am happy to say that it has all the qualities I love about a good yoga mat without the chemical reeking right out of the box. In summary, good bye old mat, and your chemical fumes, and hello Rock Leopard. I am excited to see how much more I fall in love with this mat as time goes on."
If you are looking for a cushiony mat that it is easy to keep clean and maintain…this is the right choice for you!
This mat is super sticky and thick for comfort. It has been in 100 degree yoga room repeatedly and continues to be totally nonslip. I am super impressed!
Received my mat the next day. Have been using it for a while now and it has great grip. Love the color too 🥰 - Meg.
Received my mat within a day, which was a great start, first tick.
The packaging and design is really cool, not like any other workout mat that I have bought before, it definitely stands-out and looks and feels premium, second tick.
The thickness is good, I have sore knees due to years of sports and damage to ligaments, this is thick enough to provide the support I need and not too thick that I lose balance doing certain routines, third tick.
Can tell that this will last, the top layer has a diamond engraved layer, the bottom a checked design and can say I've not slipped in any position, fourth tick.
This was more expensive than other mats I've bought before but the only other one that was of interest and a similar price point was the Manduka Pro but read that you had to use salt rubs to get the surface to stick, this doesn't need that, fifth tick.
Could go on, it is a hit.
