To determine which apparel sizes will suit you best, please visit our fit guide.
We choose fabrics that are kind on the earth, soft on the skin and designed specifically for yoga. For more information, please visit our fabric guide.
For women, we've developed countoured fits and flexible seams to move with you in your practice - distraction free. Longer silhouettes and high waistbands keep you covered, while natural materials allow your body to breathe.
For men, subtley tapered waists and bottoms keep your shirt and shorts from rising up during downward dogs and inversions. Our performance fabrics conceal sweat and allow you to transition easily from the mat to the rest of your day.
Please see our fit guide to learn more.
We recommend caring for your garments by washing and drying in low temperatures as much as possible in order to prolong their useful life and also conserve the earth’s energy. Always avoid using fabric softeners – they can inhibit wicking and breathability in performance fabrics. We never recommend dry cleaning.
PRO® Series Lifetime Guarantee
Manduka guarantees the Black Mat PRO®, Manduka PRO® and PROlite® yoga mats to be free of manufacturer defects and to last a lifetime, if used and cared for properly. Since the The PRO Extra Large is a multi-purpose mat, it is not included under the Lifetime Guarantee. Should a PRO mat not meet Manduka's standard of quality at the time it is received, we will replace the product, regardless of where it was purchased. If the product wears out from regular use, under normal conditions, we will replace the product, regardless of where it was purchased. Damage resulting from improper handling or care, post-purchase modifications, alterations, negligence, and use for a purpose other than for which it was designed, are not covered by the Manduka Guarantee.
If you would like to request a replacement mat, please fill out a contact form. Manduka will review the submission, determine if the PRO Series mat falls under our Lifetime Guarantee program criteria, and provide further instruction. You will receive a response to your inquiry within two business days.
The following conditions are covered under our Lifetime Guarantee for Manduka PRO and PROlite mats:
• Surface imperfections, such as gouges, slices and divots found at the time of purchase before use.
• Worn or peeling top or bottom surface from regular use.
• Undefined surface pattern.
• PRO mats purchased after September 1st, 2008
Examples of criteria not covered under our lifetime gurantee for Manduka PRO and PROlite mats include:
- Any in-studio use mats or rental mats
- The PRO Extra Large, as it is a multi-purpose mat.
- Creases/Folds/Discoloration from improper handling and/or storing. (It is best to laythe mat flat or keep it rolled up.)
- Uneven color patterns or discoloration at the time of purchase, or due to use.
- Damage from excessive amounts of water or other liquids (i.e. submerging the mat under water).
- Improper cleaning (i.e. harsh chemicals, damage from a washing machine,
vacuum cleaner, etc.)
- Damage from use other than yoga or similar fitness activities.
- Damage from outside elements/factors that puncture the mat.
- Mats purchased before September 1st, 2008.
PRO® Yoga Mats
Yes, Manduka is proud to currently offer the PRO® mat in distinct sizes:
These mats are actually more similar than they are different! Both the Manduka PRO® and PROlite® feature the same performance surface, dense support, and a lifetime guarantee. They have been Manduka’s top-selling mats for 10+ years! So what sets them apart? The differences are found in their weight, thickness and color. The PROlite was designed for yogis who want the look and feel of the Manduka PRO, but prefer a lighter version. Available in several passion-inspiring colors, the PROlite offers superior quality and comfort, just like big brother Manduka PRO, but weighs in at just 4 lbs.
We consider a PRO® purchase an environmentally conscious choice. In general, PVC is not environmentally friendly, as it seeps toxins into landfills and toxins are often released during the manufacturing process. However, we are happy to report that that our PRO mats are free of toxins (specifically phthalate free) and that the PRO manufacturing process is certified emissions free. Additionally, OEKO-TEX, a European association for textile industries, certifies the Manduka PRO Series mats are safe and free of harmful substances.
Eco-responsibility starts by reducing consumption. The product’s durability will drastically reduce the amount of yoga mats bought and thrown out into landfills. It also allows people to donate the mats when they are ready for something new to people who may not be able to afford a new yoga mat.
All of our mats have been designed by yoga teachers for function, comfort and longevity. The PRO® line is made from eco-certified safe PVC.
No. Manduka PRO® Series mats are 100% latex-free!
Lightly scrub the mat with a soft brush, cloth or sponge using Manduka’s All Purpose Mat Wash. Please avoid using vinegar based cleaning solutions as they will dull any metallic and opalescent properties. Wipe clean with water and air dry in the sunshine.
We do not recommend cleaning your mat with a garden hose, putting it in the bathtub, shower, washing machine, or using a vacuum cleaner – any of the following will likely damage the mat and void the Lifetime Guarantee.
Much like a baseball glove, there is a break-in period for all PRO® Series mats. The more the mat is used, the softer and grippier the material becomes!
The break-in period varies from mat to mat since it is a textile and also because each yogi’s practice varies quite a bit. Typically, it takes about three months of daily practice and a bit of slipping during that time so that the friction of feet and hands break-in the mat.
(To speed up the process see our answer to "How do I break in my new PRO Series mat?")
If you're concerned about slippage, we recommend pairing your PRO mat with a performance yoga towel. Whether your mat is brand new or decades old, a towel adds an absorbant and hygienic layer to a sweaty practice.
Just like your favorite pair of jeans or a well-worn baseball glove, the PRO® requires a break-in process, or PROcess as we like to call it, which is really more like a ritual. As you practice, the top surface will naturally wear in, transforming it into one that’s uniquely yours. The more you stretch, twist, sweat and breathe together, the better it gets—just like your practice.
Designed to last a lifetime (with a guarantee to back it up), you’ll never wear your PRO mat out, you’ll just wear it in. In fact, some of our very first (and now legendary) Black Mat PROs are still being used today—that’s nearly 20 years of practice and still flowing strong. Regardless of which break-in method you use, it’s really all about making the mat yours.
The best way to break in your mat is practice, practice, practice, but if you want to speed things up a little, try the salt method below or view our break-in video:
The top of the mat has a frog logo in the top right-hand corner. The bottom has a dot pattern texture, which prevents the mat from sliding on the floor.
If you store your mat rolled up, try rolling it so the top surface is facing outwards. This keeps the corners of the mat flat when practicing.
Manduka X Yoga Mats
The Manduka X Mat is great for athletes and people with active lifestyles who are looking for a yoga mat to complement their workout routine.
The Manduka X Mat is currently available in one size – 71” x 24” x 5mm, and it weighs 3.7 lbs.
The Manduka X Mat is made of Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) and is 6P free.
As the Lifetime Guarantee only covers PRO Series mats, the Manduka X Mat is not covered under the Lifetime Guarantee.
No. Manduka X Mats are 100% latex-free!
The Manduka X Mat is made of the same durable material on the top and bottom, so you are welcome to use either side!
eKO® Yoga Mats
Our PRO® Series has been known as the Taj Mahal of yoga mats for 10+ years. Backed by a Lifetime Guarantee, the closed-cell construction provides dense support while the performance surface allows optimal movement between poses. Designed to last a lifetime (or two), Manduka PRO series yoga mats curb the amount of PVC that enter landfills each year and reduces overall mat consumption.
The eKO® Series, made of all natural non-Amazon harvested tree rubber, is the next generation of eco-friendly yoga mats. Developed over four years of research, the sealed-cell surface provides a stable practice with wet-grip. We are proud to say that Manduka’s eKO mat is manufactured without any toxic glues or foaming agents and is more durable than other natural rubber mats found in the marketplace.
Wondering why we keep mentioning cells? A closed-cell or sealed-cell surface means your mat will not absorb sweat and moisture, where other mats might. If you sweat regularly in your practice, consider pairing any of our mats with a yoga towel to keep your mat dry, and your practice in place.
Both the eKO® Series and the PRO® Series have been designed and engineered by yoga teachers to provide the ultimate surface to practice yoga. However, due to the different properties of the materials, they offer a differe
