This is a very well-made and absolutely gorgeous mat (Pond of Harmony design). It grips very well. I think this is an excellent mat overall and would recommend it to yoga practitioners looking for something solid with excellent grip that provides support and doesn't have much give.
However, as it turns out, this is not what I am looking for in a mat. The Unity mat is harder than I expected. When I ordered the samples, the surface of the Unity sample I got felt softer under hand; not as smooth and pliable as the surface of the Aura sample, but also not as hard as the full-size mat felt when it arrived. On my first use, the Unity mat was both hard and rough. It is entirely possible that my expectations were too high, but I felt let down the first time I used it, and I didn't use it again for two weeks. I tried it a second time and although it was still hard, the roughness was reduced. Perhaps after some breaking in it will feel more comfortable.
This mat also has a strong smell. It's not a bad smell, but it is distinct. Based on other reviewers' accounts, the smell will probably dissipate over time, but my mat is still going strong.
But, as I said in the beginning, this is a sturdy, beautiful, grippy mat, and it deserves 5 stars -- it's just not MY perfect match. I bought the Aura mat for my mother-in-law and she loves it, so I'm going to order an Aura for myself and probably return the Unity mat. Yoloha's customer-friendly policies, flexibility, earth friendliness, and excellent customer service make them a company I want to support, and also make me feel ok that I don't like the Unity mat like I thought I would.
Thanks so much for taking the time to share your experience and positive feedback, Joanna! The Unity is our only mat that has a blend of cork and recycled rubber, so it does have a more rugged texture than our other mats. It sounds like you may prefer one of our all cork mats like the Aura as you mentioned. Please email email@example.com if you would like to initiate your exchange. Thanks again!
The top is a mix of rubber and cork which makes it grip better. The Pond Scene is attractive. It's a bit thicker and heavier than previous mats I've owned, which works for me.
Thanks for the aweseome feedback, Gary!
I was so excited to get this mat-it’s my first Yoloha, and I am so happy I finally made the choice! The art is as magnificent in person as it is online, the mat is comfy, easy to clean, and doesn’t slip. I am an avid Ashtangi, so good traction is a must. The cork is fantastic for my knees too. Thank you Yoloha and Cezlie Campo!
Thank you for the wonderful review, Colleen!
