To Store: Roll your Manduka PRO - Limited Edition with the top side (fabric-like finish) facing outwards. This keeps the corners of the mat flat during practice.
To Break In: The surface texture of the Black Mat PRO improves with use. Our customers have found that the best way to “break in” their mat is to use it on a daily basis. Another trick is to sprinkle coarse sea salt over your mat, use just a spritz of water or dampen with a cloth, scrub it down with a stiff scrub brush, and air dry in the sunshine.
To Clean: We recommend using Manduka Mat Renew or any non-solvent household cleaner and a damp cloth or sponge. Hang to dry in the sunshine. DO NOT clean your mat with the garden hose, put in the bathtub or shower, or put it in the washing machine- it may break the machine and ruin your mat!
Manduka PRO series yoga mats, designed to last a lifetime (or two), curb the amount of PVC mats that enter landfills every year and reduces overall mat consumption. Also, during the manufacturing of most PVC products, toxic emissions may be released into the air. However, PRO series mats are manufactured through a process that ensures no toxic emissions are released into the atmosphere. The PRO series mats are certified safe for human contact by OEKO-TEX, an environmental certification agency in Europe for the textile industry.

I have this color and I love it!
If you are large, buy this mat. I am over six feet tall and press the scales at 225. Yes a regular guy. The 85 is perfect because I need the whole mat for my size and it holds my weight so my knees do not get bothered. Beware, I am also strong enough to carry it. It is heavy but the last mat you will every buy. Actually I also bought the 71 version because they did not have the longer version in a color I wanted. It works for home but the longer mat is much better for me.
I purchased my Manduka Pro Black Magic a year ago when it was first offered. It instantly became my soul mat. I love the comfort, support, and traction that it offers. I cannot even feel the hard floor beneath my mat- it's just me and my mat. Some complain about how heavy these mats are when transporting them, but to me it is worth it. There simply is no better mat. I've been using it frequently for a year now, and it doesn't show any signs of wear. My only disappointment when I purchased it was that it was not available in the 85" version. Needless to say, now that it is, I've ordered it and I cannot wait to begin practicing on it.
I am a fairly new practicioner. I actually took my first class years ago while struggling through a bad marraige. I wandered in with my "lovely" seafoam green mat purchased from Target. A lot has changed since then and I am now dedicated to my yoga practice which of course means I needed a good/great yoga mat. I found my soul mat! I puchased the 71" version which is perfect for me at 5'9". It is not that heavy really, I would take it to the studio..no problem. I LOVE my Manduka PRO Black Magic!
My Manduka Pro - Black Magic was just delivered to me last night; I haven't even officially practiced on it yet and I'm already in love with it. Absolutely my soul mat! I was just practicing a couple of poses on my living room floor last night and I cannot wait to start using it in class tonight. And I want to show it off too! Ha ha! I'm 5'10" and I went with the long length; a million times better for me than the standard length. No more shifting on my mat to make sure that my nose isn't touching the floor after releasing Chaturanga Very comfortable as I could already feel the benefits of the padding on my knees. It is a little bit heavy but that's not even remotely an issue; a great mat like this is going to have some weight to it. I've only been practicing yoga consistently for about six months now; I had no idea how much difference a mat could make. If you are dedicated to your practice and the advancement of it, I highly recommend spending the money and investing in this mat.

I absolutely adore this mat - its durable and grippy. I am 6'1 and 85" is perfect for me. love the color as well, amazing mat!
I bought a Lululemon version Purple color Manduka Pro about two years ago and fell in love with it right away. It is simply amazing - nice-locking, perfect gripping and durable! Then comes the Black Magic. I struggled for months and finally bought it for my basement practice room (good reason - one Manduka Pro for the main floor and one for the basement!). The color is so gorgeous! It's a bit pricey but I would recommend it to anyone!!!
I am newer to yoga (two months into it) and practice Power Vinyasa yoga. After a lot of research into just what kind of mat I should get I purchased this one and got the 71". I am so thrilled with this mat. It has just the right thickness, density and stickiness even in the 90 degree heat we practice in; I don't slip!!!
I agree with the other people that reviewed this mat; after using two other mats before this one this mat is truly my soul mat - love love LOVE it!!!!!
I was the lucky owner of a Black Mat Pro that I have used just about daily for the pat 4 years until about a month ago when my car was stolen, and since my mat virtually lives in the car, with it, went my mat.
Having to return to the cheap mat I own or gyms/studios provide has been awful! My practice is my own, and I can do it without a mat or wherever of course, but I am a larger person and have a lot of bone and joint problems and I wasn't aware of just how much my manduka affected my practice. I dont get nearly the amount of pain that I get using regular mats, and have a much more fluid and enjoyable practice. It is the most sound, comfortable mat on the planet.
I originally purchased it because of the reviews and lifetime guarantee when I started getting really serious about my practice, but realized Id never have to use that guarantee because the mat actually gets better with time. It was really starting to feel like home after 4 years. I have tried out other higher end mats that friends own, nothing is like the manduka. worth every penny. And now it the same mat comes in purple, so I am buying another one even though I cant afford it because its a necessity. I am going for the 85" this time, cant wait for it to arrive, my practice just hasnt been the same since mine was stolen...
I give this mat 10 stars!
This mat significantly improved my practice since the cushioning is far superior to anything else you will find and does not move from your set place. It does not show any wear and tear and is super easy to clean.
I recently purchased the Manduka Black Magic Pro and matching Practice Tote. I didn't mind spending a little extra for the color choice and extended lenght. The mat is by far the best out there to choose from and the bag is heavy canvas material-not the cheap flimsy nylon with mesh. Combined they are heavy for most yogis. The carry strap is wide and firm to distribute the weight of the mat evenly accross your shoulder. The zipper pulls could use a little more heft in their next desing update. I sweat alot during yoga and normaly use a towel, it's not necessary with the Pro. Once you break it in and clean a couple of times with sea salt and a damp towel the slippery coating goes away. Do yourself a favor and purchase this mat and bag. It's well worth the investment. NAMASTE
