Manduka yoga mats !

I was using my TJ Maxx/Marshalls, etc. Gift Card while shopping at my local stores today and they have TONS of yoga mats - including 2 black Manduka Pros for $49.99. That is a great price for a Manduka...I have two Pros already (one bought from Target for $60). I actually had it in my cart but thought why do I need another $$ Manduka? So I thought I'd take a gamble for $19.99 and buy a Gaiam Insta Grip mat (6 MM) that was more cushy, stickier, and prettier! It boasts of "instant traction in any pose". (I'm getting tired of black! My other Manduka is light blue which is pretty but I keep it upstairs and don't use it as often). It seems my black Manduka is losing its' stickiness. I'll report back how I like it....

Just thought I'd share if you're looking for a yoga mat....they also have lots of other workout related items.

So how do you like the Insta Grip? Inquiring minds want to know!

ETA: Oops, didn't notice you just posted that yesterday.

Vannie, I just used it once before I read that Cathe will be selling round yoga mats! I've always wanted a ROUND one, so probably will be returning it and buying one from Cathe, LOL!

In response to your Q, I guess it was ok...not much difference from the Manduka, IMHO. But, I'm not giving it much of a chance to like it one way or another....

AnMrsDe, thanks for the feedback. That's cool to know it compared well to the Manduka, at least in one use. I honestly don't even know why I asked since I certainly don't need a new yoga mat! I am rearranging my gym a bit so I actually have room again to roll out my 6' square mat that I love. When I got my rower and elliptical they sort of encroached on available floor space! Enjoy your round mat when you get it!

I had planned on going out to TJ Maxx today to check out the equipment but was knocked back by a killer migraine. Just woke up not too long ago. Hopefully there will still be some goodies there next weekend

Vannie, thanks! Enjoy your 6' square mat too! (PS I actually took back my yoga mat last weekend, haha!). Now I'm reading on another thread that a lot of other peeps are planning on buying a round mat too....I sure hope Cathe orders quite a few, LOL!!

Hey Bubbles, I hope you feel better today! If your TJ Maxx/Marshalls inventory is similar to mine, I'm sure there will be plenty mats there this weekend. Report back what you find!
