  • 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 - Sage

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 Perfect cushion and grip! I love my mat!! I have the pro lite mat, and my hands slip on it. But I don’t slip on this one at all! It is now my favorite mat by far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great traction. You feel stable. The material feels very rich- it's quite on the heavy side but I don't mind as it provides very good traction. Makes me look forward to my daily yoga practice :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mat! I've used this mat about 10 times now and I absolutely love it. It seemed a tiny bit slippery at first when I would work really hard and get sweaty but I think after breaking it in a little it's really performed well. It definitely had a very strong rubber smell when I first got it, so you will want to air it out for a while. The smell faded after a few days. I absolutely love the material and it's much sturdier than any other mat I've owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent mat for yoga and pilates Purchased this mat for myself for yoga and pilates. It's thick enough for the pilates classes and grippy enough for the yoga as well. It's hard to find a mat suitable for both practices but this one does the trick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was hoping it would be I need a mat I can bring on a plane - so something lightweight and foldable is ideal. It still has a nice grip and feels durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mat! I'm very happy with this mat. I bought it because I tend to slip with my hands and feet and it has been working well for that. It has a little cush to it and it's very solidly built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well buuuuut I bought the extra long version of the eKO and it works great! My only regret is that I didn't look at the larger pro-series mats with a lifetime guarantee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great traction! I’ve really enjoyed this new mat. It has great traction and yet allows me to move purposefully Through my practice without getting stuck. The only downside is the rubber smell. I’ve aired it out plenty so you don’t smell it immediately, but it gets in my hands after practicing. It’s also pretty heavy compared to my ProLite mat. Still, it’s thickness, design, and traction are huge wins for me. Mandukas are always my favorite mats!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beat mat I’ve ever owned! I bought this mat a few weeks ago and I LOVE it! This is my third Manduka mat. I have an EkoLite and a ProLite. Both are excellent mats and hold up very well, but this one is perfect! Had I known I was going to enjoy this mat so much, I would have bought one years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Taking my yoga to the next level! I bought this mat on a recommendation from a friend b/c my old one was pretty slippery, even if I wasn't sweating much. This new mat has minimal slippage and is saving my knees as well. I liked thinner mats before bc it's useful for balance (squishy mats are so hard to balance on) but this is firm enough for that to not be an issue and also keep my knees from digging into the ground (esp on camel pose - my least fave b/c of the knee thing). The only downside (other than it being a bit on the expensive side) was the strong smell it had the first few weeks, but that has also subsided. I expect this may be the last mat I have to purchase for 10 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome yoga mat! I’ve been using this mat for a little over a month and it’s worth every penny. I sweat when working out and my hands and feet tend to slip. This mat has made such a difference in yoga. I feel secure and the mat never moves. Cons : it has a strong rubber smell and it’s on the heavy side. Wish it was a bit lighter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! Worth the money spent. Before switching over to Manduka, we tried almost 3 different brands. None of them come even close to what Manduka offers! Very happy with the purchase. Thanks! :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Mat I bought this mat a few months ago for yoga teacher training and it has been amazing. I feel like I can bend farther, hold poses longer and breath deeper with the support and beauty of my mat. I picked this one because it makes me think of the ocean which eases my mind and allows me to sink into my practice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! This is my first Manduka mat and I am loving the overall texture and density. My only issue has been the rubbery smell and I slipped a little, however that was prior to cleaning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thick supportive no-slip mat I love this mat! Had Ecolite before, which I also loved, but for my regular home practice this thicker, longer, wider mat is perfect. Also really appreciate the free mat recycling program, thank you Manduka!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I needed a new mat and I do a lot of hot yoga and found myself sliding lately. I did some research on the best hot yoga versatile mat and found this one. It’s life changing, lol! It’s cushioned but so grippy. I absolutely love it! It does smell pretty strong but it’s only been used once.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing mat Amazing mat. It's super sticky- my hands no longer slip or slide. I bought this to bring to the studio with me (I walk to and from) and I will say it is a bit heavy for transporting. If you drive to your studio this shouldn't be a problem, but if you live in a city and walk you might want to consider the Lite version

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EKO superb yoga mat, great deal. I am enrolled in a yoga teacher training (YTT) course and wanted to expand my practice by investing in a higher quality yoga mat. I was willing to spare no expense (within reason), but at the same time did not want to 'overspend'. While searching purveyors of yoga mats and reading reviews I came across The 'green' features of the EKO line were attractive, and at the time a couple of styles were marked down 50% ($48), presumably due to being discontinued. One of these was the EKO plume agate mat. Encouraged by a comment it was 'masculine looking' (I'm a guy), I ended up purchasing the mat (hesitating due to a comment regarding a 'strong odor'). Long story short - I love this mat! There was indeed a fairly strong rubber-like odor upon unpacking that some may find off-putting. However, it did not bother me much, and over time it does dissipate. After 3-4 weeks of use and cleaning it was virtually unnoticeable. The support is excellent, I would describe it as firm and dense but giving. The mat was designed with horizontal micro-ridges that enhance grip, even once the sweat gets going. Weighing in at around 7 lbs. be informed this is not a lightweight mat. I like to fold my mat in half before rolling (keeping clean side clean) and initially this was a bit of a challenge, but it eventually 'broke in' and is no longer an issue. Folded this way it is about 16" circumference. A fellow student tried my mat, liked it, and ordered an EKO Lite which I tried and also liked. I am actually considering keeping mine at home and getting a Lite to lug to classes. All in all I am extremely satisfied with the Manduka EKO mat, and would feel the same even if I had paid full price. At half-off - deal of the decade! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and so grippy! I bought this mat about a month ago now. There were no reviews of it at the time but I liked the way it looked as well as needed something a little lighter than my full size eko mat. I’ll be traveling to Nepal for a TTC so the size and weight ended up being perfect. On top of that, it is super grippy! It’s a bit shorter and not as wide as my other mat but that’s fine for what I need. Overall I think this mat is absolutely lovely aesthetically and functionally and I would definitely recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bettering my practice! After much careful review & consideration, I bought this mat about a month ago as a reward to myself. I use it in both hot power yoga class as well as in standard temp studio classes and it does the job equally well. I can finally deepen my poses and try more inversions without the fear of falling. My hands and feet stay in place in even the 90 degree class. I also use it at home. I love the swirled colors; they cool my spirit and calm my mind. The only cons are the rubber smell when my face is near the mat, but that is fading with each use, and the weight, but they offer lightweight versions if you are carrying it further than I do. I am noticing some loose threads on the edges, but maybe that is normal wear and tear? I bought a matching hand towel and place it at the top for power yoga, but I use it more to dab sweat than I do for support as the mat feels secure. I really love the quality of every Manduka product I've purchased so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Sticky & Flat This mat has been great in my hot yoga classes. I also bought a YogaToes and it sticks perfectly to this. I love that the mat lays flat and has great grip through my excessive sweating. My only complaint is that it doesn't like to roll back up after class. Also I purchased it on sale so overall I'd say it was great value for the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much improved grip This is my second eko after my first got lost in a move. After a month of use, I'm very happy. I'm not sure what changes Manduka made, but the grip is much improved over my previous eko. I do not slip. Aside from that, it's got a decent amount of thickness while still feeling firm and is a good length for average height folks (I'm 5'9" and have plenty of room).
