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.
