The Consciously Cool Chick mat is incredible. Right out of the box the vibrant colors and positive message had me hooked. This mat looks like it belongs in a museum on display rather than on the floor.
Getting bendy the following morning at home was me leading children — so aka a half-session for me with intervals of helping posture on the girls. I have slipped more than once going from a position to another mat, so a mat that doesn’t slip or slide all over the floor is a big deal. I unrolled and nudged the mat with my toe to scoot it over — and nothing, she didn’t budge! Thirty minutes and four trips to other mats later I had not even had a hint of wiggle.

Two days later I got to do a solo session, and wanted to push myself and the mat a bit. I had a slight hand slip transitioning from 4 Limbed Staff to Upward Dog but after a very light spritz of water per the packing insert I didn’t slide again. Then I hauled to a studio and went to a class that moves a bit faster than I am used to — and nothing. 3 Leg Dog to Lizard, and not a wiggle. Half Moon to Sugar Cane and the dense foam kept me stable, as well as prevented my usual wrist discomfort. On the way out I got several compliments on the great design and softness of the facade. In fact, it took me twice as long to get to the car as usual!

This mat is five stars. Soft to the touch, beautiful, and completely slip resistant. The only issue I had was keeping other peoples’ hands off! I love it and my children love it — this is definitely something I would give as a gift or pick up for a family member.
