Yoga Mats Are Not Created Equal

Yoga mats might seem like one of those dime a dozen products that you can pull of the shelf at any big box retailer, but if you’ve ever tried that before, you know there’s a little bit more to it than that. They get stinky after a few months of sweat, or they tear, or you slip on them, you name it. There’s a pretty surprising amount of stuff that can go wrong with a yoga mat, and with a practice like yoga, where concentration and control mean a lot, those are the sorts of things you really shouldn’t have to be dealing with when you’re trying to get stretchy, calm, and fit.

Fortunately, we’ve got the Manduka yoga mats at both entry-level and pro price points, so you can put those worries to bed. Their closed-cell design keeps them from absorbing the bacteria that create odor, and their eco-friendly construction actually gets better with wear, rather than worse, so they’ll last as long as you care to use them. They’re designed in thickness and in texture to have just the right amount of grip and give, and your yoga practice will thank you for it. There are few yoga mats on the market that can do as much for you as these.

Yoga is a highly personal practice, and we know one yoga mat doesn’t necessarily fit all, so check out the Manduka Pro and Manduka Pro Light mats and see if one of them is your perfect fit. We trust these designs for their durability and comfort, and believe there are few others that can compare. Yoga is one of those lifestyle things that if it’s with you, it sticks with you, and you shouldn’t compromise on the quality of the materials that help you practice. You could buy a generic mat and replace it every three months, or you could pick up a Manduka and let it get more and more comfortable as you get more and more comfortable in your yoga routine. They’re easy to clean, portable, and they’ll last you a lifetime.

If you’ve got any questions about picking out a yoga mat that’s right for you, don’t hesitate to contact us. Mats are kind of our thing, as you might have guessed, and we’ve got a lot of experience helping folks find the perfect fit for their budget, practice, and lifestyle.
