We would recommend these sticky mats as great starter mats for Ashtanga Practice. While normally one would think that a thicker mat is better than a thinner mat, in actuality it is not so! A thicker mat not only experiences uneven stretch (something that is irritating to the pose stability), but it is also easily torn apart OR causes unnatural surface depressions over time of a rigorous ashtanga practice. You should have a mat which is minimally thick to provide just the right level of cushioning for your joints without affecting your practice flow!
