  • Use & Care

    To Clean: All eKO series mats can be cleaned by wiping down the mat with Manduka’s Mat Restore Spray (a vinegar based solution) or a 50/50 mixture of water and organic apple cider vinegar. It is recommended that you DO NOT put your eKO mat in the washing machine, as it will encourage the material to break down. DO NOT soak or submerge in water and DO NOT use any type of soap for cleaning, as it will compromise the performance and integrity of the mat.

    To Store: Do not leave the mat exposed to direct sunlight. If wet, allow the mat to dry before rolling up.

  • Sustainability

    The eKO Lite Mat is a natural yoga mat made from sustainably harvested tree rubber. Unlike other rubber mats available today, the foaming agents used to create the eKO Lite are non-toxic. What this means is that no toxic chemicals have gone into the manufacturing process to soften the rubber. Additionally, instead of using synthetic polyester for reinforcement, we have chosen to use a blend of polyester and natural cotton. According to both customer feedback and published yoga mat reviews, the eKO Lite Mat is a high performance mat that is also good for the environment.

eKO® Lite Yoga Mat 4mm

The eKO Mat represents a bright future for the eco-friendly yoga mat - it leaves behind no footprint in landfills, but will definitely make a lasting impression in the studio. These natural rubber mats use a toxic-free softening process and are completely free of harmful foaming agents and plasticizers found in other mats.

Tri-Layer Technology offers an optimal combination of grip, durability, comfort, and performance:

Top Layer: Natural sealed-cell surface keeps out moisture and sweat from seeping into the mat and breeding bacteria.
Center Layer: Stretch-resistant scrim binds the unique layers together using a heating process which eliminates the need for toxic glues.
Bottom Layer: Thicker, bottom layer provides lightweight cushion and excellent loft for your practice!

Discoloration can be a by-product of natural rubber products. To keep your mat in the best condition, visit the use & care section.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Great mat! Was putting off buying a new one because I didn't want to have to deal with breaking it in... but so glad I did! The mat is super sticky and didn't need any breaking in! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the mat from Target I've only been practicing yoga for just over a year, and I've been through three mats. My yoga teacher recommended Manduka as an especially high quality mat, so I shopped their website and decided to buy an eKO Lite that was on sale. It was three times the price of the yoga mats I'd bought at Target and TJMaxx, but I figured if it lasted longer, it would be worth it. Boy, howdy. Smelled like a tire factory when I unwrapped it, but after leaving it out on the deck to air in the shade for a couple of days, it was bearable. It's been fading, so it's not an issue a month out. It feels grippy, and it's more stable for balancing poses. I never slip, and it doesn't *follow* your toes up so it is less likely to catch on my toes as I jump back to downward dog, etc. It's pretty to look at as I use it too. Love the purple color. Very pleased with my Manduka mat, and I let other students try it out to see what a good mat feels like. :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I didn't have any problems with slipping and it was so comfortable to practice on. Did have strong rubber smell but I left it out in kitchen for a few days and it wasn't a problem after that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite mat This is my 2nd Manduka mat and I love it. It lays flat when unrolled, has the perfect amount of stick and is not slippery. I have been using it for almost a year and have no complaints. I recently bought a second one for my sister, since she has loved using this mat too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from truly no slip mat I've been practicing long enough that I've worn out several yoga mats. I really love the non-slip style of this mat. It's a bit shorter than my other mats and it isn't as "squishy" for my knees like my Prana mat, but overall I feel like it's been a major upgrade for my practice. It has a bit of new mat smell, but I dabbed some essential oils at each corner and that helped until the rubber smell evaporated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great grip and perfect cushion I've had the mat for over 6 months now and I still love it like I opened it yesterday. It's such a treat to get onto when I'm ready for my "me" time. The thick cushion to the mat is comfortable on my knees that can be sensitive sometimes and grip is great for those sweaty palms! I am officially a Manduka mat girl!
