  • Use & Care

    To Clean: All eKO series mats can be cleaned by wiping down the mat with Manduka’s Natural Rubber Mat Wash. 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.

    Please note - the salt method is not intended for eKO mats.

  • Sustainability

    The eKO 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 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 Mat is a high performance mat that is also good for the environment.

eKO® Yoga Mat 5mm - Thunder - Long Length

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grippy and cushy. I bought this mat for my boyfriend. He exercises at home, and this was a huge upgrade to his cheap and slippery mat. He's 6'2", so I bought the longer length. He told me this mat is grippy and supportive; the only thing he didn't love right away was the rubbery smell (but a little mat cleaner fixed that).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great grip makes huge difference I never imagined this mat would make the difference it has in my poses. I don’t slip, the grip is firm therefore my poses are solid, grounded, & better balanced. Totally recommend it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted! I always buy Manduka... I had a Manduka Pro for more than a decade and used it daily for ashtanga yoga. It was only recently that the surface became sticky and worn. I have an Eko travel mat (2, actually) but it is too thin for regular use. Living lightly on the earth is important to me (part of the yamas and niyamas), so the Eko is a great choice. The new one I got is just the right thickness for daily practice... 5 mm... but not too heavy to carry. I love it... Oh, and I really liked the ease of recycling my old friend the Manduka Pro that served me so faithfully all these years! Live on, old friend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid mat! As with all natural rubber mats, this needs to be aired out for a week or so before use for the smell to go down. First couple uses were a tad slippery, but after a little use and some wipe downs with mat sprays it’s perfect. I like the longer size even though I’m average height, I just like the extra space and to not be hanging off the end in certain poses. Nice cushion. I like knowing this is eco-friendly, it won’t last as long as the PRO, but then again it wasn’t made of plastic and won’t last forever in the landfill when it eventually makes its way there. Would purchase again when this eventually wears out, I’m sure I’ll get years of good use out of it by then:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Sliding on this Mat! I p..ed this mat looking for a longer mat but did not want to go to the 85 inch mats. This one was 79 inches (about 8 inches longer than my old Manduko mat) and slightly wider as well. The non-slip feature is phenomenal no matter how sweaty you may be. In fact I had to get used to it because if you are used to some slide with placing your feet, you won't get it with this mat. The 5mm. thickness also makes for a very comfortable mat. Very happy with all aspects of this mat. Only downside is you will need to condition the mat in some way to reduce the initial odor coming offo of the mat. I'm using a 20% vinegar-water solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent grip Best mat when things get sweaty / wet. As a dude who's prone to bizarrely heavy sweating in even the lightest yoga class, maintaining traction is a paramount concern. With the eko, I'm fine even in intense and crowded vinyasa classes. I'll eventually put a towel down to mop things up but not because I need added grip. The 5 mil is also a good thickness. Provides support and cushioning without losing your sense of contact with the floor. Having had this mat before, I've noticed it will start to erode over time. But it takes several years of almost daily practice to wear this thing down. And that's only if you drag your feet a lot in transitions. Wouldn't spend the money if you're just dabbling in yoga. Use a towel over a loaner mat for traction (and hygiene). But once you establish a regular practice, I think this mat is an excellent investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great company I had a discolored spot on my first one- without hassle they sent a new one. They contacted me promptly. The Mat a 5mm Eko gray is fabulous - I have no smell from it and I don't slip while using. This is a great company with a great product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just awesome I definitely have the best mat in the yoga room. It's a heavy mat, because it is dense. I like the gray mat because it had a pattern on the top that helps it be extra sticky. I got the extra length even though I am super short, because I want to have space around me. I would recommend it. I love mine
