The SukhaMat is a fully-padded yoga mat that can fit between the knees and a wall or against a wall during any normal yoga or pilates exercise routine. Made of 100% high-density NBR foam, the mat is lightweight and won't lose any of its inner comfort or flexibility through use. It meets the requirements of the Consumer Products Safety Commission and is also CPSC 2310 compliant.
The extra padding on the mat comes in handy no matter your age or physical condition. Whether you are just getting started or are a sports enthusiast, discomfort can drive some to quit. The mat makes such a huge difference in your ability to complete your exercise routine that it could be a challenge not to exercise more.
The padding on the mat has been very well designed with a curved shape that is offered from a width measurement of 19 inches, up to a distance of 24 inches. This allows you to get a little more padding at your full width at the floor level and the wall-length setting will give you a comfortable gap between you and the wall.
I spent a few minutes flipping the mat over and held it against the floor. I tried to get some sort of measurement and the best I could figure was that the mat was slightly over 8 inches deep. The length and width measurements were both larger than 19 inches, so I would place the mat's width somewhere between 22 and 24 inches.
The mat feels like it has a good weight to it, but not too much. Except for the use of 100% high density foam, the mat is lightweight. It has a rubbery texture that also makes the mat convenient to use and the rubber-like surface is soft to the touch.
The mat looks like it would definitely work with any yoga mat of varying thicknesses, so I'm not sure why it was designed specifically to match any skinny yoga mat.
For me, the mat's main form of use would be with my yoga practice. I found that it exceeded the pad of my knees by about 3 inches and they were very comfortable to lean against. I think I would really enjoy using the mat for pilates exercises, too. It just seemed too thick for my comfort to use on the wood floor.
The mat is definitely nice to use in a pinch, and I would be willing to make use of it if I need to.
