  • 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.

eKO® Yoga Mat 5mm - Thunder is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highest quality and feel This mat has a different and much better feel from any mat I've used. It is firm and sticky offering just the right amount of cushion and grip. I was concerned that the odor might be strong but it went away completely about 15 minutes after opening. I highly recommend investing in this quality mat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than I expected I have only used the mat twice so far BUT it has been more than I expected based on the reviews I read: 1. The rubber smell is NOT that bad and it did not stick on my clothing. 2. The mat is sticky. I could not believe how well I was able to hold on to downward dog and really bend into it. I used my cheap yoga mat for 2 years and never thought I was able to hold DD that well. 3. It is heavy but not something that bothers me. I don't walk with it around town so I don't even use a strap for it. I definitely would get a strap or bag if that was the case. 4. The length is perfect for me (6'0")! 5. I should have done this 2 years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOME PRACTICE HURRAH! Purchased this to replace cheaper brand that was worn out. This Manduka eKO Mat 5mm is a godsend and has helped me to initiate and remain faithful to my home yoga practice. Get the long, 79 inches...a great investment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Supportive and spacious This is my 3rd EcoMat, 1st one in the long length. The cushion is superior. The stickiness is great. The length is perfect for a stretched out sleeping swan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I dig it! I’m a newbie and been practicing on this mat a few weeks. I was using a standard sporting goods variety mat before but as the level of yoga started wringing sweat out of my body, I new my old mat wasn’t going to work. I’m 6’1” 200ish pounds and felt cramped on a standard size mat. I dig this mat. I sweat a lot in a regular flow and don’t slip on this mat. I think the grip improves when I sweat on it. Some reviews on here say it’s slick ... I can only speculate that there is maybe some soap residue from their cleaning or de-rubber-smelling attempts. In my experience, the scent is there but it’s going away. I don’t notice it much anymore and I’ve used it 3-5 times a week for the last 3-4 weeks. I’m not too fussy about such things though - new stuff doesn’t smell new forever. It’s substantial and has some weight to it. Get a strap ... no big deal... but I’m not fussy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a mat that’s long enough! I got this mat a month ago and I am loving it. It is so long, I am 6’1” and can lay down with space on each end. Nice and thick. I love the material, no slipping! There was a bit of a rubbery smell which is normal, and most of it has faded. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great support and the length is perfect Received this as a birthday gift and it is better than imagined. The thickness is great for supper and this is the first mat I have owned I can fit my entire body on.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Practice Mat! I purchased the identical standard length mat for my previous teacher training. I loved it so for the next level I decided to get the extra length mat. Great decision...stocked my studio with them too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful mat for daily practice. This mat provides great cushioning and a perfect non-slip surface even when there is sweat. The weight of the mat is worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything a tall, sweaty guy needs! I was struggling to find a mat that was non slip, durable, and long. This mat is perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mats! My old eKO mat was starting to pucker. I am very happy with my new mat. My feet really like the feel of this mat. The length is the same but this mat is 2" wider than my previous one so it is a bit heavier. I also bought the travel mat. It is great because of the size and it is light. Easy for me to take anywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best yoga mat I have ever purchased As a long-time yogi, I've been through quite a few mats, but was appalled when I learned what a negative impact they have on our environment. I opted to try a eco-friendly and durable mat when I came across eKo. To my surprise the density and durability, grip pattern, and length made practice even more enjoyable for me! I absolutely love this mat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is MY MAT! Of all the mats in all the world ... the eKO is by FAR the best. Perfect texture, perfect grip - It's obviously been tried and tested and tried and tested because this mat is perfection. The rubber smell goes away if you lay it out - and I 100% recommend the mat wash that accompanies. I would buy this mat 100 times if I could. Best. Investment. Ever for my practice! PRACTICE ON MANDUKAAAA!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mat ... I think it is a good mat but I buy this to thick I lost my balance It is comfortable but heavy I think I need a thinner one The material the color is great not slippery

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eko mat 5mm I bought my new 3 new eko mats for my home yoga studio and as always all my students love them. They love the cushion and grip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for sweaty practitioners This mat holds up in any vinyasa class I have taken it to and helps me grip even when I am sweaty.
Date published: 2017-07-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great texture & size for sweaty, taller people After much research and trial and error, I bought the eKo 5mm mat for full price and I don't regret it one bit. The texture provides slip resistance even when wet with sweat (doubly so if you're using a towel), while the extra length and width keep me fully on the mat. Yes, the rubber smell lasts for a while, but it's not unnatural or particularly unpleasant. One note: I've found it cumbersome to get the mat in and out of mat bags without a zipper (e.g. those with a drawstring opening at one end), but tying the mat with a few Velcro straps beforehand solves that (I got them at REI for like $4).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good yoga Mat This eKO mat is a very good product, because it's comfortable to use and it has anti slipring. For people who sweat when doing yoga, will love this Mat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice mat I love this mat but don’t love the smell. It smells like a rubber tire. I’ve aired it outside as stated on the packaging. I’ve used it numerous times for hot yoga. I take it to the studio and bring it back home to give it a good cleaning. The next time I get in my car, my car smells like rubber. The smell in my car goes away after a few hours but I wish I didn’t have to deal with it. My hands slip on this mat during hot yoga. Thought that wasn’t supposed to happen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love the feel...hoping the smell fades... Why I love this mat: -great sturdy, cushion feel while not feeling flimsy/squishing underneath body weight -eco friendly material! -topical finish helps with hand/feet slipping (as long as youre dry!) What I'm less stoked about: -strong fishy/plastic smell...but I have read that fades, I'm only a month into my use and it's still pretty strong... -a bit heavy for toting back and forth to the studio -i don't normally do heated yoga so this hasn't been an issue, but I just took one class and the mat felt really slippery while my hands were sweaty

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Smells It's a great mat besides the rubbery smell. I thought it 's new- that's why it's smelling. But unfortunately/ it doesn't go away.
