When I do Yoga.. Yeah, the best way to describe me is Chet from Weird Science when he was turned into the Pile of Chet. We look the same, I bet we even smell the same and I too feel like I am squirting out fluids from every pore on my body.
I like the mat, I am also using one of the Manduka towels on top of it. That does seem to help with giving me better stability on the mat with my excretions that are pouring off me. I tried the mat without the towel and I kinda felt like I was turning it into a slip and slide from my dripping funk.
What I did enjoy.. Others have the same mat in class. Though, I do get the same look as in the movie, when people see Chet in his Pile of Chet state for the first time. I am like,, " Hey, dudes!!" . Them.. " Is he really talking to us? Eww."
I am glad I can be cool just like all the cool people in class. You want to look the part, you have to dress the part . This mat is just the first step in being accepted as one of their own, The Yoga teacher told me I had nothing to be ashamed of with farting, or swearing in class. As she said.. " It is perfectly normal". Even as I am trying to nail child pose.
You might not be cool, collected, agile, flexible, poised, or have any clue where you may have left your Chi, or if you have ever had one, but your mat can let everyone know that you too can be just like them.
