    Ive only been using the mat for 2 weeks but I do not have any negative to say. Thickness is what I am used to, and I like, color is great, smell was minimal!  I am in my 60's, have been practicing yoga for 10+ years, and I currently practice 3-5 times per week - vinyasa!  Definitely recommend.

  • 12/26/2016 Great Mat

    5 Review Stars By Nia C.

    I love how grippy it is! I have it in Midnight and not only is the color absolutely stunning, but the texture is incredible. I was going to buy a Pro but decided not to because of how slippery it gets. I practice daily and get very sweaty (and even when I don't, I still need the extra stability) and don't need to spend days to break in a mat. I was also debating a Jade because of how grippy it is, but didn't like how they don't last or clean well. The Eko is the perfect balance. There was a bit of a smell when you unpackage, but if you're used to natural smells and products like I am they probably won't be a bother. The mat is a bit heavier than average, but if anything it makes it feel like your yoga mat is a home. You do, however, need a strap or carrier for this one at all time. It's not one of those mats where if you don't have a carrier or forget it at home, you can get away with just rolling it up and going about your day. It doesn't roll tight and due to it's size it doesn't stay rolled on its own AT ALL either so I'd purchase a carrier simultaneously as it will become a hassle in a studio. I've had no issues with slipping with this, and it's very firm and provides enough cushion. Truly transformative!

  • 1/4/2018 Grippy

    5 Review Stars By robassable

    OK been using this mat for about 3 months now and like it more and more. RE: the smell.  Yes it does have a rather prominent rubber smell at first (which I kind of like), but after some use and time the smell is barely there.  And the reviews saying it is slippery?  Uh...This is about as grippy as it gets, and I have used lots of different mats.  If anything, it can be almost to grippy when shifting out of positions and at times you almost feel stuck in place.  I got a Manduka Pro and liked it, but man I was slipping all over the place and am so glad I exchanged it for this one.  I even read a review about it being too heavy...C'mon! if you can hold a plank and a downward dog, carrying something that weighs less than 10 pounds should be a breeze!  My wife got the same mat in pink and she loves hers too.

  • 8/26/2017 Never again Manduka

    1 Review Stars By dt

    I have used and cared for my Manduka mat since I purchased it a few years ago.  I began to notice "shredding" along the edges of my mat and "worn" spots on my mat where my hands/feet are placed.  I contacted Manduka about it.  I didn't expect something like this to happen since I invested in this high priced mat.  It's not like I use my yoga mat every day.  A customer service rep that I spoke to was quite rude and would not budge on trying to accommodate or offer me advice on what I might do to get compensated for these flaws  from Manduka.  I have since gone with another yoga mat company and am very satisfied with the product.  I have several friends who have also switched from Manduka to another yoga mat company and are as pleased as I am with their mats.
    It's unfortunate that your company does not stand behind your product when a customer has a concern with their purchase.

  • 12/17/2017 Great for hot yoga but heavy

    5 Review Stars By Kim

    This mat is great for hot yoga; it's sturdy and I don't slip at all when I'm using it. There are two downsides: 1) it's heavy, 2) there is a strong rubber smell that takes a long time to go away.

  • 9/23/2017 Great for Non-Slip, Nice Cushion, & Good Quality

    5 Review Stars By Sun

    So far I love this yoga mat!  I have a Manduka ProLight which is excellent quality (I've had it for 3 years and it still looks brand new), but when my hands sweat I slip A LOT on this mat.  The Eko is a 100% improvement over the ProLight where slipping is concerned.  To be clear, I don't use it for hot yoga, so I can't comment on how it would be in an intensely sweaty heated class.  I do, however, have particularly sweaty hands, and I'm happy with how well they stick when wet in an intermediate non-heated yoga class.  I should note that the Eko is less sticky than the Jade Harmony.  In my opinion, Jade makes the most slip resistant mats on the market.  However, Jade mats don't last long, while Manduka is known for making long lasting mats.  It's a trade off that's worth it for me.

    I bought the color "Trogan" and it's much prettier in person than in the photo.  The yellow and white is more subdued and it's less contrast-y (in a way that is more pleasing to the eye than the photo).  It reminds me of gently flowing water.

    It does have a strong odor right out of the package that is exactly like a kids rubber ball- the kind you would use in dodge ball in elementary school.  I don't find the smell offensive (it just smells like rubber), and I have confidence it will fade.

  • 12/16/2017 My first “good” mat

    5 Review Stars By Jess

    I’ve always bought cheap mats. Did a bunch of research to select my first “good” mat. I wanted something grippy for hot yoga. Narrowed my choices down to this or Jade brand. Went with the Manduka eKo because it sounded easier to keep clean. It’s very grippy which I love! It’s pretty heavy, as described, but I wanted a sturdy mat. Very happy with the purchase!

  • 6/22/2017 Awesome mat!

    5 Review Stars By Yogaln

    I absolutely love this mat. It is everything I was looking for!

    Positives:

    1) grippy- I don't do hot yoga, but I have very very sweaty hands and feet. There is a medical term for the excessive amount my hands and feet sweat, but it escapes me right now. A regular yoga mat turns into a slip and slide with in 30 seconds for me. This one does not. I'm able to press into and hold the pose easily no matter how sweaty my dogs and mitts get.

    2) cushion - it is think and cushy. This is a plus because I'm kind of old now.

    3) attractive- I got "trogon". I love it because it reminds me of the ocean and that's just so relaxing.

    4) weight- relatively light weight considering the substance on the mat. I had read reviews complaining of the weight and I do not agree. It is only a few pounds, not a problem to carry.

    Negatives

    1) smell- indeed, smells like rubber... But not overwhelming even right out of the box. I think many other reviews are either exaggerating the smell or they were using the mat in a small space. I do my yoga in a fairly large space so I really only noticed the odor when my face is right in the mat.

    2) cleaning- have to be very careful what is used to clean this. I know that detergents and saponified oils are a no go because they will degrade the rubber over time. I need to figure this one out, right now I'm just using water. Certain natural oils will do the same. You won't see it right away, the mat will just break down more quickly over time so for those who say they use normal mat wash on this mat and it's fine, they are correct short term, but long term they are damaging the mat.

    3) flexibility- I can't leave it in my car due to sun and heat. It will break down. Again, this is the nature of a natural rubber mat and there's nothing to be done other than not leaving it in the car or sun.

    5 Review Stars By Annie

    Needed a new mat after I lost mine in Harvey but I didn't want to spend a ton. Thankfully, this one was on a great sale! I was skeptical about buying a mat for so much (original price) but after trying out the mat I would definitely pay it!

  • 1/24/2017 Amazing mat for yoga & HIIT

    5 Review Stars By Alisha

    I ordered this mat to use for not only yoga but for HIIT workouts as well. I'm so, so happy with it! It has great grip I do not slip at all in down dog and it holds me steady in other poses. I feel grounded and still comfortable with plenty of cushion for floor work but not so much that I lose stability. The quality is outstanding. I can tell this mat will last for years.

ABOUT THIS BRAND

Manduka

Founded at the turn of the millennium, Manduka® has always been a company that put its customers and the environment above all else. Peter Sterios, an architect turned yogi, stumbled upon a simple, yet elegantly created mat that completely revolutionized the way he practiced yoga. This revelation was the inspiration for the whole Manduka yoga line.

Sterios' creation would not have been possible without the help of his generous yoga teachers. As a form of appreciation he sent a mat to many of the yoga teachers he admired including Rod Stryker, Erich Schiffmann, Victor Van Kooten, Angela Farmer, Rodney Yee, and Shiva Rea. As a traditional practice in yoga, these teachers shared these mats with their students and from there the word spread.

Manduka, derived from the Hatha Yoga Pradipika pose, Mandukasana, is named as a tribute to Sterios' yoga mentor, Shandor Remete. The delight he took in hearing the word roll of his tongue helped him solidify the faith he had in his new company. From there the joy has spread to over 35 countries worldwide.

More than anything though, Manduka's commitment to quality and sustainability is unmatched in the yoga industry. Every detail and every decision is made with sustainability in mind. Manduka wants their customers to not only find peace with themselves, but their environment as well. Products like the Manduka eKO Lite Yoga mat, the eQua Hot Yoga Towel, demonstrate just how committed they are to sustainability.

Manduka understands that yogis of all levels come from diverse backgrounds, but they all share similar core values. Beyond just being eco-friendly, is the spirit and wisdom that yoga teachers and their students emanate. Yoga is more than just exercise on a mat, it's a way of life. Manduka embraces this idea and lets it shine through all their yoga products.
