At 74 x 24 inches the YogaAccessories 1/4 inch mat is longer than your standard mat so if you're on the taller side, this should give you plenty of length. However, the mats only 24 inches wide meaning you won't have any extra real estate on the sides of you. If you're a taller person who's slightly larger, you may want to keep scrolling and check out the Manduka Pro and Heathyoga mats.
The thickness of this mat is decent and does a good job of minimizing the feeling of the floor underneath you.
Its made from a spongy foam that's medium density and free from latex, phthalates and heavy metals so its also body friendly. For most people it does a great job of providing comfort. However, if you're someone with sensitive joints, you may want to check out our review on the best mat's for sore knees for more specific options.
Some people have expressed slipping on this YogaAccessories mat but the overwhelming majority have had no problems. That being said, if you're doing hot yoga on a regular basis or you're a heavy sweater, you'll want a mat specifically for this purpose or you can get a yoga towel to go over the top.
I would consider this a budget friendly mat and as such, it provides adequate cushioning for beginning yogis. But as far as the durability goes, it ranks moderately low on the scale. It will likely tear if you begin taking yoga seriously so you'll definitely have to upgrade in the future.
Overall, this mats a good choice for beginning yogis since it offers lots of styles and a good balance of the most important qualities but if you think you'll stick with yoga, this might not be the best option.
