Manduka Mats

Long-lasting mat This mat has a lifetime guarantee, and so far after two years of using it for regular yoga practice and teaching, I still see not even the smallest sign of wear. Though this is a lighter version of their mat, it is still a relatively heavy mat compared to most. It is very stable and supportive, and also thick enough for cushioning. For non-heated yoga classes, it is plenty sticky. If your hands or feet tend to sweat or if you are taking heated yoga, you might need a towel to cover it to prevent slipping. As this is a zero-waste mat (you never throw it away because it is supposed to last a lifetime) it is very eco friendly! When you first buy it, there may be a slight coating on the mat (not visible) that makes it a bit slippery. Spray the mat with some yoga mat spray and wipe it down thoroughly to take the coating off. (do NOT use a soap-based mat spray!) Let it air dry.

does the job I like this bag, it is roomy with space for my bits and pieces. I like that it is water-resistant and RECYCLED!


eco mat! Love this, I have it in the green shade which lots of people were impressed with. I LOVE being eco too (it makes me feel really smug), so that is definately an added bonus!


Don't wait. It's worth the expense! First off, I've been practicing ashtanga/power yoga for about a year and a half now. I'm not an expert, but I know what works for me. My hands and feet sweat a lot during class. Most mats I've tried turn into a slip-and-slide after the first 5 minutes. From day one I've had to use a towel under my hands at the front of the mat to keep from collapsing in down dog. I've tried them all, your standard "sticky" mat, a mysore rug, etc. The sticky mat gripped until I got sweaty then it was worthless. The mysore rug needed to be so wet to grip that I ended up sitting on wet spots (not fun). The Black Mat is the only one that works. It grips perfectly and I don't even need the towel under my hands. I also love that it is so thick and dense. It doesn't "follow" me when I jump through, provides plenty of padding for my knees/arms, and is very stable for balancing poses. I even like that it's heavy... it helps tone my arms!

Manduka Mats

Manduka was founded on the simple idea that a better yoga mat can make a world of difference. Ten years ago Peter Sterios, an architect turned yogi, discovered a simple, elegantly designed black mat whose unique combination of firm grip and complete support revolutionized his yoga practice. In honor of the yoga masters who inspired him, he sought to share this amazing product with other teachers. And in the great yoga tradition, these teachers shared their mats with their students and a true yoga company was born. Today, the joy of Manduka is spoken in more than 30 countries across the world.

After a decade in the yoga community, we are still evolving, still introducing new products, and still celebrating the spirit and wisdom of the yoga teachers and yoga students who help make us the world’s most inspired yoga company.
