Cathe's Big Yoga Mat

Does anyone have this? If so, do you like it? I"m thinking of purchasing because when I stretch, I would love to have my body not touch the floor. The problem is I have a smallish workout area and cannot leave it out. I do cardio out in my main living because I have plenty of room but I could not leave it out there. In the extra bedroom (that has a bed), I do weight workouts, so I could not leave it out in there. It would probably be hard to continually drag out and roll up, yes?

I have a big circular Mandala mat and it would be a pain to have to drag out and roll up every time I use it.

I have Cathe's round yoga mat. I work out in my living room, and I roll the mat out when I want to use it and then roll it back up. It's not a big deal to move it here, there, and everywhere.

I must be lazy!

Are these 6 ft mats? I guess I just don't have anywhere to store mine.

I roll mine up and lay it across my weight bench when I'm not using it.

I have it I love it, too. I roll it up and put away with my other mats.

I guess I am so used to putting stuff away so it doesn't bother me.

I think if you're used to putting things away in your exercise set up then it won't bother you.

I have a round Mandala mat. I'm fortunate that I practice in my bedroom and just roll the mat up and shove it under the bed when I'm finished.

I think it doesn't seem like a big deal to me, as I schlepped heavy Manduka and Jade yoga mats to classes (10 pounds - and I walked to class) for years.

It is nice to not be hanging off on the floor, especially in the winter. I layer the Mandala and my big Jade mat for yin and restorative yoga.

My daughter just brought me one for Christmas. It arrived the other day and I am in LOVE! Itís very thick and high quality. A few years back I purchased a Mandala round mat and you can tell the difference immediately. With the 25% off for Black Friday Catheís mat is certainly worth the money.

I agree with you! I've purchased many Mandala mats over the years and they were my go-to, but Cathe's is thicker, and I'm so glad it's an option now that Mandala is no longer in business. I am purchasing another Cathe mat during her sale
