$85 for a yoga mat? Like most of you, I had the same reaction, but it is one of the best investments I’ve ever made. Yeah, it’s a lot of money, but the best always is — and this mat is clearly the best. That’s why your instructor uses one. You won’t believe how much better your poses and jump-backs will be until you try it on this extremely supportive surface. It’s well padded, but firm — never squishy — so your stability is excellent; and its surface relies on texture, not stickiness, to ensure superb grip, even when sweaty.
This is a beautiful mat, great quality and one that I know I will be using for many years to come.

I have owned a Manduka Pro Mat for many years and I love -yes it is big and heavy, but the result is great quality that lasts and lasts. However, it is time to replace it as it is finally starting to develop some “bubbles” due to extensive use, hot yoga classes and cleaning so when I saw this design, I knew I had to have it.
Take the time to break in this mat and you will LOVE it.

I purchased the 85 inch in Black Sage. The color was so green it was almost black. More like a forest green. I really did not care for the color, but perfect for my husband. I ended up getting the color Sensation as pink is my favorite color. I adore the color! I am 5’8 so it was not completely necessary for me to have the longer length, but…I REALLY LOVE having the extra length to stretch out on and not have my head or feet on the floor ever! I chose the pro because of the cushioning and the lifetime warranty. It is not squishy at all just dense and having hardwood floors, the cushioning is just amazing. Yes it is heavy to lug around, but I do not mind because I drive to class. Getting the mat into a regular mat bag quickly after a class is not a fun task so I found a cute canvas tote bag from target that it is super easy to slip into to and from class and does not have to be perfectly rolled to fit. I read a ton of reviews on people having slipping problems on the mat. I did purchase some coarse sea salt and scrubbed my mat after it arrived and the difference was immediate. I scrubbed it first with the sea salt and a washcloth then went over it with a stiff brush, then wiped it down with clean water. I took my time and did it outside in the sun as the salt is very messy. I live in WI so sun is rare this time of year… I let it dry in the sun for about an hour and it definitely made a immediately noticeable difference on the grip. The next day I went over it again with a scotch brite scrub pad (green pad), and apple cider vinegar mixed with water 50/50. The mat still looks absolutely brand new even after the scrubbing. Yes it was a pain to do this, but it was worth it. (consider it a bonus arm workout because it really is you will sweat.)

This is one heavy-duty solid mat. It looks tough. It feels tough. It is tough. The mat is dense and feels extremely firm
Don’t wait. It’s worth the expense!

First off, I’ve been practicing ashtanga/power yoga for about a year and a half now. I’m not an expert, but I know what works for me. My hands and feet sweat a lot during class. Most mats I’ve tried turn into a slip-and-slide after the first 5 minutes. From day one I’ve had to use a towel under my hands at the front of the mat to keep from collapsing in down dog. I’ve tried them all, your standard “sticky” mat, a mysore rug, etc. The sticky mat gripped until I got sweaty then it was worthless. The mysore rug needed to be so wet to grip that I ended up sitting on wet spots (not fun). The Black Mat is the only one that works. It grips perfectly and I don’t even need the towel under my hands. I also love that it is so thick and dense. It doesn’t “follow” me when I jump through, provides plenty of padding for my knees/arms, and is very stable for balancing poses. I even like that it’s heavy…it helps tone my arms!
The texture did improve and it works fine. Key here is that it must be broken …

I was concerned about the comments about it being slippery. I followed the salt scrub directions, set it out in the sun and took it one step further and also used a water/vinegar solution and cleaned a couple of times. The texture did improve and it works fine. Key here is that it must be broken in if you don’t mind that phase – it does get better with a little time and use. The great thing is you’ll have it for so long you will actually get to enjoy using it when it gets to it’s seasoned stage. It’s stable, durable, and very well made.
Love my mat!

I waited for years to invest in Manduka, and when I finally decided to do so I realized I wanted something other than the Black Pro Mat. I was thrilled to find the Vasuda and while I was hesitant about how the color might appear IRL, I couldn’t be happier with the hue. It’s dark and rich and beautiful! I didn’t have any problems breaking in the mat. It’s gloriously sticky and the rubber smell is barely detectable. I highly recommend this product!
Works well for non-hot yoga classes (low sweating level); great combination of support and firmness
Great to have for balance and to support your knees

Great to have for balance and to support your knees. I was using a thicker more like Pilates mat because I was trying to protect my knees, but it just was difficult to balance on and really didn’t help much. I moved then to a couple thinner yoga mats and would fold a towel in the center for my knees and that is just a hassle really and a bit distracting. This yoga mat is worth the money. It is heavy, but gentle on the knees and excellent for balancing.

I have been doing yoga and pilates now for almost 2 years and decided I deserved a new and better mat– better than the cheap ones at the gym and better than the $12 one I got at TJ Maxx when I first started. I looked at many different mats and read lots of reviews plus, I talked to the yoga and pilates instructors about the best mats for their classes. The Manduka name came up many times and, though the cost seemed a bit high, I decided that it might be worth a try. I am so glad I got this mat. I can now do all my exercises on it whereas previously, I had to do some of the balance poses off the mat and on the floor since the other mats were too “squishy.” I am 5″6′ tall but I even opted for the longer matt– another thing I’m glad about since I can move around on it and not worry if my next down dog is going to be half off the shorter mat. I bring it home after class and wipe it down with a mat preserver spray, then let it dry before I roll it up and put it away for its next use. So far it gives great support for my bony feet even when, in the past, I’d had to accordian a mat to protect my feet in a cross-legged position. I’m very happy with this mat and feel it was well worth the seemingly high price.
