In this product review video, we check out the Sticky Yoga Mat from 2nd Wind. We will also share the top things to look for if you’re on the market for a sticky mat.
2nd Wind Health offers a small collection of high quality yoga mats and yoga props. To us, this brand brings quality over quantity.
The Amethyst Sticky Yoga Mat is one of our personal faves from 2nd Wind’s yoga mat collection.
Sticky mats are one of the original – and most popular – styles of yoga mats. Why? Sticky mats gained so much popularity because of their great traction and grip. But not all sticky mats are created equal . . .
When you’re on the market for a sticky mat, you want to look for quality, eco-friendly materials, top-notch grip and traction, and a great value.

What Makes 2nd Wind’s Sticky Yoga Mat Unique?
The most striking feature of 2nd Wind’s Sticky Mat is the laser-engraved designs. These designs are unique, eye-catching and intricate, but they are also discreet alignment markers.
These lines are placed intentionally to help you find the proper hand and foot placement in any pose. There’s a center bar that goes down the entire length of the mat, along with a vertical line across the middle to help you find your alignment.
Another unique aspect of this Sticky Mat is the material itself.
Made from all eco-friendly and biodegradable materials, we give this mat a 10 out of 10 rating for its traction and grip. It’s as sticky on the top as it is on the bottom (which is made from natural rubber) so it won’t move around on any type of surface while you practice.
We tested this mat out in hot yoga as well as intense forms of Vinyasa and other non-heated, more gentle practices. It maintains its grip in any setting (and even as you sweat) which makes it great for any form of yoga.
