  • 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

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.

eKO® Yoga Mat 5mm - Thunder is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large, Durable, and Soft I'm a tall yogi, so the extra length is very noticeable. This mat is also thick, so the extra padding is awesome! This is basically twice as nice as my old rubber mat. Thanks for the upgrade!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stick no slip I have a 2mm regular length eKO that I have used for about a year. I decided to the thicker mat to get padding for my knees so I don’t need to grab a blanket every time I am doing cat/cow. This mat has the perfect padding for my knees and everywhere else. I also like the extra length so I can stretch out during my practice. The additional plus is I do not slip during hot classes. This mat is perfect for me. Thanks Manduka!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mat I love my new eKO mat. The grip is fantastic. I previously used a Pro lite. It was a bit slippery but the eKO has a great grip, No Slipping, it does smell a bit like rubber but it’s no a very slight small. It’s my perfect Matt I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy I bought this mat! As an incredibly environmentally conscious consumer, looking into buying a new yoga mat that respects the environment was important to me. Not only does this mat check all those boxes, but from the first time I practiced with it I was hooked. It has a really amazing texture and it’s super grippy. It also has a lot of cushioning without being really thick which is an amazing feat in and of itself. This mat is amazing and I’m so happy with my decision!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great grip I really love this mat for vinyasa flow. I hate using towels when moving a lot because they get bunched and this mat alleviates the need. I’m tall and it’s really nice to have the longer option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy but great yoga platform Requires some airing out when received. Mat has good grip even with sweat. Good cushioning, but not soft/unstable. Very pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy! Can a yoga mat be "comfy"? This one is. I have both the Pro and the eKO lite and this eKO is always the one I grab for class. It's light enough to not be a bother on my walk to the studio and thick enough to help support my joints when paired with a harsh wood floor.
