  • How Manduka Founder Peter Sterios Built The Best Mat in The World

     

    In 1997, the Internet was just getting started (less than 2% of the world’s population were users), the first social media platform was launched (but, let's be honest, no one knew what to do with it) and Amazon was only 4 years old, primarily selling books and DVDs.

     

    20 years later, all of those things are very alive and well...and so is Manduka’s signature yoga mat, the Black Mat PRO. In 1997, the yoga landscape was a very different place, where 60’s-era refugees and martial arts students gathered in small studios to practice on makeshift mats often made of cut-up pieces of carpet underlayment (true story).

  • We're in This Together

    Our beloved community of yogis goes beyond the studio – it spans the nation and the globe. Harvey and Irma's affect on our community has broken our hearts, which leads us to the question: What can we do to help?

     

    Manduka has committed to helping studios in need hit by the hurricane with replacement yoga mats for those that have become lost or damaged. We truly believe that the power of yoga provides a sense of self and strength, especially in times of uncertainty.

  • Slipping on your yoga mat?

     
    If you sweat during practice or find yourself slipping on your mat, we always recommend a towel to help absorb your sweat.

    Our yoga towels are sweat activated- the more you sweat, the more they grip. A yoga towel is the perfect accessory for any yogi or fitness guru.

  • Sore wrists while on your yoga mat?

     
    Try using the tips of your fingers as support, rather than the palms of your hand. Practicing on a dense yoga mat may help as well.

    We offer a range of mats with top-of-the-line cushioning and joint-protecting density. Manduka PRO is the thickest mat we make.
