Huge fan. I got this because my hands are always slipping and this mat is awesome for that! Also super ways to clean dust and dirt off and already smells better than other mats. Big fan - highly recommend
Biodegradable?! No harmful chemicals?! Oh my goodness! I've been searching for a new quality, eco friendly yoga mat for a while now and I am so thankful I came across BasicallyPerfect. I ordered through the BP website, and was able to get the tracking information. Did have a complication with the delivery through the carrier.. but Mika was extremely understanding and kind. She was honest, communicative, and took action immediately.
The beauty of this yoga mat is like no other, absolutely love the simplicity. As soon as I felt it, I knew I could trust the quality.
If you are looking for a perfect yoga mat, this is it! It's seriously the best yoga mat I have ever practiced on and I actually plan on getting more to be able to have them at all my upcoming retreats.
THANK YOU SO MUCH, Basically Perfect. I am beyond happy with my purchase! :)
Do not typically leave reviews, but felt compelled to with this mat. I've owned many yoga mats throughout the years and this one trumps them all. I practice mysore 6 times a week, there is absolutely no slipperyness what-so-ever, regardless of how sweaty. The earthy smell from the cork is a welcome addition to my practice. I've recommended this mat to many friends and will never go back to a rubber mat again. Looks, smells, and feels great. If you are comparing several mats, do yourself a favor and purchase this one, guaranteed improved practice. Could not be more pleased, perfect.
I've used a Manduka Pro for years - It's pretty much the gold standard when it comes to premium mats, but I sweat, and despite the breaking in with salt I've done to "season" it, it's never given me the grip I feel good about when I'm sweating. This "Basically Perfect" mat does it all. The grip is really good even as you sweat and it's been a game changer not needing a yoga towel on the mat. I also tried bending the mat to see if the cork may come out eventually - that was my only hesitation before purchasing this mat, but you'll see that even if you tried, the cork will just bounce right back into shape so no worries there. I'll bet you you'll start seeing a lot more of these cork yoga mats in your yoga classes. It's really much better than any mat I've tried. Big thumbs up!
This mat looks beautiful in my living room where I have hard wood floors. I can leave it out and it doesn't bother me - sort of blends in with my floor and decor. Love my new mat! This is not a cheap flimsy mat.Very nicely made.
My search is over. This mat does everything it says it will. Have really been enjoying this mat and I keep telling people about the benefits of cork. I love how well it grips and how fresh and clean it feels against my skin. This mat has a very luxurious feel - it's not cheap compared to some of the flimsy cheap mats out there but it's worth the price. Happy!
This is a great solid block with a nice earthy cork texture - very well made and high quality! Very happy with my purchase. Thank you!
I am a sweater and this mat really doesn't slide. Awesome traction and the rubber bottom grips to the floor as well with some heaviness to it. Highly recommend this mat.
Super happy with this purchase! This mat is super grippy and feels really grounding - I LOVE what it's done to my practice! You don't need a yoga towel. Plus it's really beautiful and I get many compliments at class with people asking me about it and I get to tell them about all of the benefits of cork. Non-toxic, eco etc.! Highly recommend it!
