  • 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 I love this mat I read tons of reviews and ended up getting the Eko lite mat, it does smell like rubber a little, but not nearly as much as people say and I’ve kinda come to like the smell. haha. My favorite thing about it is how grippy it is. Would totally recommend this mat and already did. A couple of my friends have gotten them and love them just like I do!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Happy with My Mat!! Works amazing in the heated vinyasa classes I take! I've had the Ekolite for almost 3 weeks now; the rubber smell no longer lingers like it initially did, and it's so easy to clean with the Manduka cleaning product (make sure you use the one that is made for this type of mat though!). So happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Yoga Mat EVER! I recently purchased this mat and brought it to a vinyasa class and I was impressed. The grip is strong! As I jumped back the mat held me in alignment- no slipping at all! I left it open and draped over a table in the garage for over a week and there was no smell. The bonus is how beautiful the colors are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Water pattern calms me The matt has a beautiful blue pattern that looks like waves. It calms me when I get on it for my practice. It's very durable although heavy so it works as a home mat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great yoga mat This is my first Manduka mat and I am SO impressed! It is super sticky and has allowed me to really focus on my practice, instead of worrying about slipping. The pattern is gorgeous, it looks even better in person. Like other reviews, it does have a strong smell, but I left it in the shade on my porch and it lessened greatly in a few days. The smell certainly would not keep me from ordering another one. The only con I would say is it would be a bit short if you are taller. I am 5'5 and definitely would not want it any shorter.
