  • Use & Care

    To Store: Roll Manduka 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 Manduka PRO mats improves with use. The best way to break in your mat is practice, practice, practice, but if you want to speed things up a little, try the salt method

    To Clean: Keep your mat in the best condition by wiping it down after every practice with Manduka All-Purpose Mat Wash. It’s specially formulated to clean your mat without damaging the surface or causing slippage. DO NOT soak, shower or submerge your mat in water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like clouds Feels great on the wrists and knees. Any other mat I've tried I have had to put something extra under my needs in any sort of table top position, which is annoying and breaks the flow. This mat is nice and thick, but it doesn't making balancing any different which is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 years Great Condition I bought my extra long mat ten years ago. I was intimidated by the price but the amount of time i've spent on it is well worth it. I've only had the one mat. It's exceptionally durable, it survived 3 of the ten years in rocky Sub Saharan Africa with me. Great mat for tall people, mostly men as it is a little heavy. If you are serious about committing to Yoga you will not be disappointed in this mat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing mat!! I looove my manduka pro ! Excellent grip, no need for towel, good cushion but still firm. It's not a mat to carry around tough, it's super heavy. It's a mat for those who go to yoga by car or to leave it at home for self practice. It's also very durable, I have mine for 3 years now and I use it a lot, it still looks new (besides my cat's scratch). Couldn´t recommend more, love practicing on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 14years and counting = Amazing Mat! Bought my Manduka Pro in 2004 and it still looks flawless! Practicing a variety of class types indoors (and out) at least 3-4 times a week! It offers the most cushioning of any mat I've ever tried and lays firm and flat outside in the grass (no downdog hands sinking into the ground). It has been left in melting heat in my car for days yet never deforms. It’s definitely the heaviest mat out there and it’s not as environmentally clean as Manduka's Eko line but overall, it is truly amazeballs! Highly Recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love The best yoga mat I've ever owned. I expect it will last a lifetime. I'm also pretty pleased that it didn't smell at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps to improve my yoga In my yoga class I noticed one man using a larger mat so I asked him about it. It was from Manduka and he recommended it highly. I purchased the same mat and I am very, very satisfied. It is heavier than I expected but I really like the size - length and width dimensions and the thickness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mat there is I’ve been practicing yoga for 13 years and just bought this excellent mat to treat myself and give me a little extra motivation for the new year. The $30 to $40 mats I had been using previously might last me a year, maybe two if I slacked off a bit and switched to long walks or weight training for variety in my exercise regimen. This mat is nearing 5 months old and hasn’t broken down one bit yet (you know how your mat starts to shred and shed where you place your hands and feet usually a few months after purchasing it). I have had no problems with it being too slippery, but maybe my expectations are more realistic. A mat with a lifetime guarantee isn’t going to start breaking down easily, and I grip well with my hands and feet rather than do anything to break in the mat with salt. Every practice is comfortable for my very arthritic joints (especially on an uneven tile floor) and my mat never slides around on the floor. I also use it under a couple step stools from Ace hardware and do step ups without any sliding around. Just the most practical, comfortable and well made yoga mat I have ever had! I’m so glad I finally “invested” in this very economical addition to my yoga gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing comfort This is by far the best mat ever!!! No more sore joints and is so comfortable!!! I decided to go with the long mat vs the standard size and I’m so glad I did. I never have to worry if I’m going to be off of my mat. Concentration remains with every pose because of that. Starting yoga at 50 with an amazing mat will keep me practicing for the remaining of my life. Way to go Manduka!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from By far the best mat on the market I love my Manduka Pro mat. Takes a while to break in but that’s because of how well it’s made. My joints always feel comfortable on this mat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go to mat This is by far my favorite mat. As an instructor, I lead/take well over 10hours a week in classes. Having a great mat that protects my knees is super important. I pair this with a yogitoes towel to ensure no sliding around. Would definitely recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I am a beginner and bought this after a lot of you tube review videos and I am very happy with my purchase. Its expensive but I decidedto spend the money on my health and well-being and decided to purchase it because manduka backs their pro mats if anything happens to it due to regular wear and tear and proper usage of the mat. I recomend this mat because you won’t need to buy another one. Ever again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mat Very satisfied with this mat, looks pro! I still need to break it in more by exercising more, but so far everything is good. Only thing I'm not quite so sure is that it's slippery when I sweat a bit. When it's dry, perfect, but when it's wet, it's kinda tricky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra Long, Extra cushion, extra yoga love! I bought this for my yogi husband who is tall and likes a little extra padding. He loves this mat. Its not the best for travel because of the weight, but for practicing at home it is exactly what we needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome yoga mat and products I got this extra long mat for my husband for Valentine’s, he’s 6’5” and it’s perfect. He loves it, it’s supportive and stays on the floor without any movement. I also got an extra long strap and socks. They gave me a free gift and the products are amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mat but very slippery I love this mat, but it is definitely slippery. I have salted the mat, which helped a small amount. I would suggest having a microfiber cloth nearby or practicing on the underside of the mat if you are prone to sweaty palms or feet! Overall, this is a very good mat/ good purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Yoga Mat ever! Finally decided to invest in a proper yoga mat after trying out many, many, many ones over the years. I wish I had bought this one from the beginning, would have saved a ton of money instead of buying god knows how many 'cheap' ones. The bottom line is that the quality is amazing. Better grip than the lululemon mats, even in hot yoga. Doesn't have that 'yoga mat' smell you may find with lower quality ones. I have very bony knees and elbows, but this mat, even though pretty thin, it somehow manages to provide exceptional cushioning! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Met I've Ever Had I've tried many mats in my many years of practice. This is by far the best and the one that I will stick with. Nice grip, supportive, always feel grounded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this mat! ‘‘This Mat is truly amazing, after I primed it with the salt-truly NO slipping for me or the mat. It doesn’t shift around. NO smell to the material either. Very comfortable on the joints. So happy with my purchase. Will never buy another brand again. Manduka is it! If your on the fence about a purchase, just know they are definitely worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth The Investment! I purchased this mat a few weeks ago and have used it multiple times since. It has really helped my practice. My hands no longer slide in downward dog. The length & width is perfect, I am no longer stepping off of the mat. I have plenty of room & grip to practice! The price made me nervous at but I am so glad I bought this mat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mat for Life! I bought this mat for my husband, after owning the same for 4 years. This mat is solid, has just the right enough "stick" without getting sweaty. It handles every practice I throw its way, and I appreciate its eco-conscious manufacturing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband loves it! I've had a Pro mat for years and I love it. In the past few years, my husband has become more serious about his yoga practice. I told him he needed a better mat, but he is a tightwad and didn't want to spend the money on one. I bought this one for him for Christmas and he's in heaven.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting I bought this mat six years ago, and now I realize what “break in” means. Ive been practicing and teaching yoga for over 2500hours with this mat and it still feels good and grippy. I understand the slippery frustration when it’s new. Just keep practicing. It’ll get better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Length! I bought this mat for my husband (6 foot) and he loves that he is able to comfortably lay down fully for savasana.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mat! I purchased this mat for my husband. He loves it. The length is perfect for his height and the padding is great for his joints. He said he may try the sea salt treatment as recommended to see if it will improve the surface. Overall, a great product.
