  • Use & Care

    To Store: Roll Manduka PROlite mats with the top side (fabric-finish) facing outwards. This keeps the corners of the mat flat when practicing.

    To Break In: The surface texture of PROlite mats improves with use. Our customers have found that the best way to “break in” their mat is to use it on a daily basis. Another trick is to sprinkle coarse sea salt over your mat, use a light spritz of water, and scrub it down with a stiff brush before allowing to air dry in the sunshine.

    To Clean: We recommend using Manduka's All-Purpose Mat Wash. Spray the top surface with mat cleaner, wipe clean with a damp cloth and hang to dry in the sunshine. Do not soak or submerge PRO Series Mats in water as this will encourage the material to break down and void the lifetime guarantee.

  • Sustainability

    Designed to last a lifetime (or two), Manduka PRO series yoga mats curb the amount of PVC mats that enter landfills every year and reduces overall mat consumption. During the manufacturing of most PVC products, toxic emissions may be released into the air. However, PRO series mats are manufactured through a process that ensures no toxic emissions are released into the atmosphere. The PROlite is certified safe for human contact by OEKO-TEX, an environmental certification agency in Europe for the textile industry.
With over 2 million mats sold in over 100 countries to leading yoga instructors and practitioners, the Manduka PRO mat is universally acknowledged as the best mat in the industry.

Manduka® Prolite® Yoga Mat - Thunder - Thunder (Grey) - Standard - 71" is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 573.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the extra length and width I bought this new lighter and wider version to replace my original Manduka PRO extra long one, which got to be a challenge for me due the heaviness. This new light version is much easier for me to tote to and from my yoga classes. I look forward to using this for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mat! This mat dark green & gold striped mat was a “limited edition” which I was lucky enough to snag due to good timing! I really needed a new mat & of course it’s nice to have a unique mat and a beautiful one at that. I’ve never had so many compliments on a yoga mat over the 20 years I’ve practiced. What’s best for me however, are the line grooves in the surface which cause just the right amount of friction. So yeah, I’d recommend!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beauty and The Mat The Manduka Prolite is my favorite mat. I did not need another one, but could not resist this color combination. It is beautiful! More gold in real life than in the photo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great grip and long lasting I love this mat. As a yoga instructor, I need a reliable mat that I can carry easily. This is excellent. It takes a beating and lasts without showing any signs of wear. I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this mat! I have used this mat in hot, vinyasa and yin yoga. It is sticky - no slipping, and it provides really good cushion. I did not salt it and it was great from the first use. Paired it with a towel for hot yoga, which was perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome mat I bought this mat almost one month ago now and love it. Everything from the bright blue color, to the non slip surface and the overall high quality features of this mat. Couldn’t be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lite I previously used the heavy weight pro. Problem was it was heavy. I moved and purchased a cheap lightweight mat that shredded in 6 months. The lite weight pro fits the perfect mat for me. I can balance on the mat without slippage. The basil will not discolor and is a color as instead of always black

Rated 5 out of 5 by from marvelous mat, bad buyer Very happy with Manduka and my new mat. But I wish I wouldn't have sacrificed features to save the stupid 20 or 30 bucks. I should have taken the suggestions made by the websites "mat match". My bad! I hope other buyers learn from my mistake. When purchasing the last mat you will ever need to buy, get everything you think you might ever need or want cuz you probably will need or want it sooner or later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new mat My new Manduka mat is great! I laid it in salt as the instructions said and I practiced my daily Ashtanga practice. I broke it in and it’s great. Manduka is great and I’m so happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Treat yourself! I purchased a manduka pro-liter to replace my generic mat. It has been an incredible shift. The mat is thicker, durable, and perfectly grippy for the yoga I practice. Thanks for a great product and I encourage you to treat yourself and your practice to a Maduka mat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid all around mat This mat perfectly balances the need for grip with the need for padding. Sticky but plenty thick, I've been enjoying this mat in both heated and non heated yoga classes at my studio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE my mat! I bought this mat a month ago and I am so glad that I did! I have been doing a mat based class, twice a day for the last month, and this mat holds up wonderfully! Lightweight and easy to pack up and go, but feels thick enough while practicing. I use a towel in an hot class, but all other classes I do not, and I have no problems with slipping or sliding! I LOVE the coloring of this mat and get so many compliments on it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I love my prolite mat. It was great grip. It's compact enough for travel and provides a good amount of cushion for how thin it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE IT I was very concerned that this may would not live up to my favorite jade mat I’ve had but it has and is exceeding. It has as much cushion, length and has the warranty that lets me rest easy it won’t wear over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing material I’ve had this mat for about a month and I can’t believe I never purchased one before! The quality is amazing and it grips perfectly when I’m doing yoga or other workouts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort on my body The most thing I loved about this mat is the comfort I feel on my bones when on the mat. Especially on my knees. I can't stress it enough. I probably need more time to break it in, but nothing compared to other mats I have ever bought

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and all the features of my pro mat But this prolite is easier to take with me when I am on the go! I love Manduka’s pro line- it’s simply the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I bought this about a month ago and I love it! This mat was recommended to me by my yoga instructor. Other mats I have used would cause me to have pain in my knees when I kneeled on them but with this mat I have no issues at all. Would highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful mat- hot power vinyasa approved I typically practice heated power flow and with a yogitoe towel on top this mat is beyond perfect. The material is thick enough that I feel rooted and supported but thin enough that I feel close to the earth. I get compliments on the color almost every time I'm out with it. It is definitely on the heavier side but with the commuter strap I have no problem swinging it over my shoulder. I can also fit it pretty nicely into my backpack for work (it sticks out the top pretty high but does the trick). I don't really understand reviews complaining of slippage with sweat as I feel like that is hard to control. The towels are super thin and do not disrupt the connection in my opinion at all. I will absolutely be a prolite girl for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great quality I love my new mat. I have one from several years ago that is still great, but wanted an extra. One for home, one for studio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I have been practicing on this mat for 3 years. I had several mats before deciding to splurge on this one and it was worth it. Admittedly, it is a bit slippery to start with, but the salt scrub did the trick. It is lightweight but provides enough cushion with only minimal need for added padding. Great texture, color, easily cleaned, doesn't stretch out, mark or flake - looks as good today as when I first purchased it. This product lives up to the Manduka name.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily to take on trips! I borrowed my daughter's while on vacation and had to get one for myself. I love it as it takes no space hardly and weighs pretty much nothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mat I’ve ever owned!! This mat is awesome. I’ve had trouble with slipping before and also experiences some pain in my toes with other mats. The pro lite is a dream to use!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect and only mat I bought my first ProLite around 2011 and that original mat has made me a Manduka devotee. I am a yoga and Pilates teacher with several classes a week so my Mats gets frequent use and have to travel well. Over the years I’ve tried other mats but nothing else has the same qualities of the ProLite. The color Tasmania is gorgeous, vibrant and i would call if a cool turquoise. It doesn’t look cheap or mass produced, it looks special. This mat isn’t very heavy to carry around but it’s thick enough to create enough support no matter what floor you’re practicing on. The texture is the best, it’s not quite fabric like, but it prevents slipping and makes it sticky. For those of you who don’t think it is sticky enough, you need to give it time, break it in, give it the good salt scrub. This is my fourth ProLite and it’s the same great qaulity manduka has been making for years. Also- I do own the black Pro, and I like it but would never try to lug it around between classes though I imagine some people are fine with the weight of the Pro. But this one I can take everywhere. I’ve turned countless students and friends into this mat and everyone LOVES it. This is THE ONE. Also: If you’re wondering why your mat isn’t stick like mine, be sure not to use too much mat cleaning spray, be sure to wash it with hot water and salt and scrub it dry. This mat is your tool and an investment in your practice. You should take care of it like you’d care for a nice, expensive pair of yoga pants (don’t just throw them in the dryer!) same here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mat! This is my second Manduka mat. My first was the X, which I still have an love, but was looking for something with a bit more cushion. I was a little unsure of this mat when I first got it. It seemed more slippery than I expected even after the seasoning it. I have found that it gets more grippy with each use. I really like the thickness of the mat. Not too bulky, but still provides quite a bit of cushion for my wrists and knees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mat for hot yoga! I have been using the same regular Manduka Pro for about 6 years and wanted to get a new one with a fun pattern / color. I am a Manduka loyalist, but I did want to try something a little different that still had the cushion. However, I was actually hesitant to buy this mat because I read reviews that the sheen made it slippery in hot yoga which is primarily what I practice. I was blown away though with my first practice on it - not slippery at all! It's almost sticky, but in a great way! I actually feel more grounded and that my practice immediately leveled up with the use of this mat. Plus I think it is absolutely beautiful. The color says espresso, but it feels like a dark iridescent gold. I'm completely in love. Thanks Manduka for always making the best mats!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Walking on Cloud 9 I am a yoga teacher so my mat is critical to a good practice. The Manduka Pro Lite feels like I am standing on a cloud. It provides just enough support so I can do inversions and balances, and enough stickiness to help hit difficult poses. The Pacific Blue color reminds me of the ocean every time I practice. The only thing I didn't like was having to 'salt' it before I could practice, but now that it's done, it works perfectly. I love Manduka mats.
