- Use & Care
To Store: Roll Black Mat PRO 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 our Black Mat PRO mat 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 Mat Renew or any non-solvent household cleaner with a damp cloth or sponge. Hang to dry in the sunshine. DO NOT clean your mat with a garden hose, put in the bathtub or shower, put it in the washing machine, or use a vacuum cleaner - it may break the machine and ruin your mat! If you are ever unsure of a cleaning method, feel free to contact us for the best recommendations on mat care.

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 Black Mat PRO is certified safe for human contact by OEKO-TEX, an environmental certification agency in Europe for the textile industry.
This PRO mat has been a lifesaver and has made yoga much more enjoyable. I don't feel the floor coming through the mat into my joints anymore, inversions on hands and head feel great, and stances are awesome! I don't have to worry about what's under my feet and just concentrate on my practice.
I use my PRO mat at home and roll it up to take to class as well. Yea, it's a little heavy but to me it's worth it that I can be in class and enjoy myself so much more. I see classmates double or triple their mats..
Yes this isn't cheap. It's an investment. A lifetime investment. You get what you pay for. You won't be disappointed. By the way, I am 5'11 and bought the extra long black PRO version. Perfect! The regular one would have been okay but this length is awesome! Don't have to shift my body around to get mat coverage under me.
