Worse than useless

Behind my non stick frying pan this is the second most slippery thing in my house If you desire this disconcerting feeling of your hands gently sliding away from you whilst in plank/down dog this is the product for you Somehow manages to be worse than the wipe clean children's play mat I was using before Tried giving it a gentle soap and water wash to get the mold release agent off of it and it doesn't really make a difference Really don't think this should be for sale, it would be easy to do permanent damage to your joints if a foot slid out at the wrong moment Also wanted to give this 0 stars but that wasn't an option, negative stars would be appropriate as it is worse than the floor it is being put on


Comfortable good price

Works well

Excellent thickness and weight

Slippery and easy to mark!

Had read reviews about this mat and decided to buy it because people said it wasn’t slippery.... how wrong they are! This mat looks and feels good to start with but as soon as you do stretches such as downward facing dog your hands slip away regardless of where you place them. It’s slippery! As soon as stores open I will be returning it because not only is it slippery but it marks with the slightest touch and I have the navy one! I can only imagine how bad the other bright colours get after just one use.

Super slippery, very disappointed

Upon first receiving this mat, I was quite happy with its length and lightness. However, I found it really slippery, particularly when doing downward dog, during which my hands just slowly slide away. I used it again a couple of times, but it is just really unpleasant. My husband used it as well, and agrees with me. A waste of money...

very oodm easy clean, non streatch, not slippery

Highly recommend this mat - i do Yoga and Pilates on it - ideal in Covid times. Also comes with a " a handle" for easy carrying to and from the gym

All it says it is.

Lovely mat with lines to keep feet in correct place. Also extra long compared to other mats. Great price too.

Good mat for exercise or beginner yogi

I used this mat a couple of times and it does the job. My main mat is the studio 5mm which is excellent and I use this mat as a travel mat when I practice outdoors or in the studio. Obviously the grip is not the same as the studio mat but for lower intensity classes or beginner yogi it's a good choice.

I purchased this mat in store after travelling some distance to the Decathlon store. I wish I had read reviews online before making the journey. I selected this mat out of the selection available in the Wednesbury store based upon it seeming to have a nice grippable surface. Price was not the issue, as none of the mats in store were priced at all. In fact it looked as though there was no order to the display at all. I class myself as practicing gentle yoga but I can't even stand on all fours without my hands slipping away which is very distracting. I am so disappointed as I was really looking forward to working out at home and I am left with a product that is not fit for purpose, or another hours journey back to store to return it. Wish I hadn't bothered!

Ok until you do any standing poses

The mat is fine for basics where you are lying on your back or sitting but as soon as you do any basic standing poses (including downward dog) you feel your hands and feet start to slip and start concentrating on them rather than the breathing or the poses themselves. I only do hatha yoga so this is not very good at all. I wish I had listened to the other similar reviews and bought a proper mat first time.

Dear Laurence, 

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us feedback.

I am sorry to hear that your experience with the mat hasn't been positive. Based on our customer reviews we have lowered the price and also added a line explaining that depending on the intensity level of the Yoga practice you may need a Mat with a better grip.

Our Yoga team is working on a new technology mat as we speak which will be available soon. 

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to contact me directly at

Kind Regards, 
Definitely not a good choice

I bought this mat and from the first use I totally regret it. So slippery that I cannot even do the exercises. At the beginning I thought it was my problem, but when a friend borrowed it to try she told me the same. During winter I used a towel on top of it, but now even the towel is slipping away! Worst mat I ever had!

Hi Erato,

Thank you so much for your feedback.

I have passed all your valuable comments to our Brand and they are working on improving this product.

I have also taken some local actions myself and have lowered the price permanently from £19.99 to £17.99 which will take effect tomorrow, 24/05/2018. 

This Yoga mat is designed for Gentle Yoga and it could be slippery depending on the intensity levels of your Yoga exercise. 

If you are not happy with your purchase, you have 365 days to change your mind and exchange or return the mat. 

If you need any further advice on choosing another mat or anything else, please don't hesitate to contact me directly at

So slippery

I paid a lot for this mat in comparison to others available locally, but I can't use it. Its so slippery, every time I've tried I've had problems. I can't return it because I live in Thailand where such concepts are alien regardless of whatever the head office says. Please don't buy this for yoga!

Hello Alexis,

First and foremost thank you for taking the time to write a review. 

I am really sorry to hear you didn't have a good experience with this mat. 

All of that feedback will be forwarded to our Yoga brand and they will take it into consideration developing and designing the product to replace this one. 

However, you should be able to return the mat no matter where are you in the world. 

Please send me an email directly at izabella.angelova@decathlon and I will try and do my best to resolve this issue for you.

Kind Regards,

Additional Product Information

Size and weight

Our mat is 72.8" long, 24" wide and 5 mm thick. It weighs 1.8 lbs.

Choosing your yoga mat

- Do you have a gentle yoga practice (hatha, restorative, prenatal, nidra, etc.)? Transitions are slower and poses are less physically intense. A mat between 5 and 8 mm thick will provide enough cushioning for your cervical spine and joints. - Do you do dynamic yoga (Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar, hot yoga, Bikram, etc.)? Transitions are fast and the intensity is high. A mat up to 5 mm thick will give you better grip and stability for balance.

Our product design process

There are 8 of us on our team: from beginner yogi to instructor. We all share this passion. Whether we do gentle yoga or have a more dynamic practice, we're all seeking balance. With our network of yogi ambassadors, we (e)co-design products to meet your needs and mindset. We are committed to making your yoga practice a positive, generous and eco-friendly experience.

Caring for your mat

After practicing, use our essential oil spray to freshen your mat. To clean your mat, wipe down with warm soapy water and allow to air-dry before rolling up.



Care instructions

Clean with a damp sponge, add a few drops of essential oils to water to deodorize and disinfect.
