This yoga mat by BalanceFrom is made with premium quality foam, which, to me, is very important for an exercise mat. If you have purchased a cheap yoga mat, maybe twice as expensive as this one, you'll know what I'm talking about. I don't need to elaborate, you've had them, they just don't feel right.

The extra thickness and healthy amount of memory foam cushion this yoga mat from extra jarring movements which can shock your knees or elbows and really hammer your joints, especially when you're doing extreme poses or standing on one leg.
This mat is extra thick at 1/2inch and is breathable, which means it won't get soaked in sweat or cause an issue with feeling too clammy. There is a slight odor because of the natural fiber used but you'll get used to it quickly.

Other great features to note about this mat are the double-sided non-slip surface which prevents you from slipping, the simplistic strap system and the easy-clean material.

The carry strap is an added bonus you get with this purchase and you'll find a yoga mat bag to easily transport it with, which is great if you need to take your mat to a friend's house.

You can view the entire BalanceFrom range on the Amazon website.
