It will enhance your practice and protect our planet. Plus, the PROlite has something that no other lightweight yoga mat can offer: a Lifetime Guarantee.
LOVE IT!I absolutely love this yoga mat! I got it as a Christmas gift, and have been practicing with it almost daily since then. The mat did need to be broke in, but I found that with daily practice mine was good to go in about a week. The mat has a perfect stickiness to help you hold poses, like down dog, but also allows for ease in transitions between poses, like three-legged dog to lunge. Overall, I am in love in my PROlite mat.
Love this matI've had my Prolite for over five years and I still love it. It is tacky where it is supposed to be. It's heavier than it looks and I don't usually carry it in my suitcase but carry it in a mat bag with my strap. Its weight means it stays flat on hotel carpet. I don't like a squishy mat so it is enough for me on my wood floors at home, if you like more padding go for the pro rather than the prolite.
Like others have noted mine smelled a bit strong when I started using it, it went away after awhile, no biggie.
Perfect Grip Now!I love the PROlite mat. It's light weight and fits easily into my yoga mat bag, and it does not smell industrial. The mat was slippery the first few times I used it. I left it in the sun for a few hours, then scrubbed it with course salt. That helped only a little bit. I left it in the sun again, and then scrubbed it aggressively with a brush instead of the course salt. I did this a few times and now my mat has the perfect grip!
In LoveOne of the best recent purchases I've made. The mat is beautiful, sturdy, just thick enough, just light/heavy enough and has the best grip. After using both HuggerMugger and Jade mats this Manduka ProLite takes the win by a mile!!! I am in love.
The Rolls Royce of Yoga Mats!I use this Mat for myself everyday and for my clients. Everybody loves it. I have tried so many mats in the past, and this is definitely the Rolls Royce of Yoga mats!
