Best grip yoga mat?

In light of the pandemic, I have been working out at home a lot and am so frustrated. If you have any experience with slippery yoga mats, you feel my pain. I'm in the market for a soft yoga/workout mat that has a no-slip grip!

Do you work out on your mat barefoot or shoes? I love my Gaiam yoga mat. I haven't had any issues with slipping and I work out in both my tennis shoes and bare feet. Check Marshall's, TJ Maxx, Target, etc before you use the Gaiam website. You'll save some money!

I have one of the Lululemon reversible mats (I think the 3mm thickness but not 100% sure) and it's much less slippery than the other mats I've owned. I would recommend!

Zoe, I LOVE LOVE LOVE my chakra mat from ALO YOGA. I bought it a year ago because I was going through mats like crazy, at least 3 a year. This one has lasted me and I love it. Its so wonderful because if you are using it for yoga, it has the markers to help you maintain consistency in your practice.

My husband and I decided to each invest in different highly recommended mats. I got the Jade Yoga mat. It's great for no-slip. I have a thinner one, so I'd recommend their Fusion. My only complaint is that it does have a slight rubbery smell, which I don't love. It's worth noting that they're eco-friendly, so it's not a hazardous smell. It's also not awful, but for the first 5 min it bugs me. My husband has the Lululemon XL mat. He's quick to perspire, and the mat has served him well. During hot Yoga or extreme sessions, he has a hot yoga towel that goes over the mat that helps with moisture and slippage.

My favorite is the Manduka. I've had it for years and it looks new. Very cushioned, two sides depending on floor you're on.
