First time you can hardly see the mat so had to do it again. One thing I really wanted to include was Krishnamachrya's ekapada sirsasana, where the arms are folded rather than palms together in front of the chest.
My past Manduka mat reviews are HERE love my black mat pro at home but for traveling, Prolite every time.

OK , seriously... actually I am being serious I almost do prefer it to the blackmat. It's thinner but still has that support and cushioning without being squishy that characterises the blackmat. If anything being thinner I feel a little more grounded, more in contact with the floor, makes the black mat seem almost like overkill.
