I use one for floor exercises, even though I have carpet, the mat makes it more comfortable. When I did pilates, I used a mat then too, just seems to cushion body parts better and make the exercising experience better.

I use my yoga mat when I do yoga because it helps me to not slip and to not hurt my feet.

It will get done. It will get done on time. It will be great.

I have one that I use under my wii board, I feel it helps with some of the moves that takes my feet off of the mat. But definitely don't need it.

One step at a time!

I actually have three, and I use them all--one for taking to yoga class, one underneath my gazelle to keep it from moving, and one on my hardwood floor where I exercise. I used to use one even on carpet because it kept my feet from sliding out from under me on my relatively slippery carpet,especially when I worked out in socks.

I wouldn't say that they're necessary, though. Just personal preference, to add padding or to reduce slippage.

I have never used a mat of any kind before. I usually just use the floor, but if I feel the need to use something I just use a really soft Eeyore throw that my wife has.

I have a mat that I use on top of the carpet for floor exercises; but, I don't use it for standing stuff. Mine isn't a true yoga mat. It's something thicker that my DH bought.

I don't have a yoga mat, though I do have a pilates one (different thicknesses.) However, I've got a carpet too, and I don't use my mat for anything except extended pilates workouts. Sorry!

I have carpet, so I never use the yoga mat. If I had hardwood floors, I might use a yoga mat. But with carpet, I never feel the need for my mat.

I bought one, but don't really like yoga, thought it might help with the board on my carpet, but it really doesn't. Does anyone find that they really need one or are they just not necessary.
