Manduka eKO Yoga Mat Review

Manduka eKO Yoga Mat Review

Image of Manduka eKO Yoga MatThe Manduka eKO Yoga Mat is the heaviest mat I have ever owned but also the most luxurious for the level of cushion it provides. It has a lovely texture and unrolled perfectly flat from the very first time I used it. The lime green is beautiful and I didnt notice any offensive smell as others have commented on ecological yoga mats.

I am not one for the ultra-soft squishy feel of some thicker yoga mats, and this yoga mat seems to have found the perfect balance. My shoulder stand was very comfortable unlike some of my other yoga mats when the floor feels a little to close to my bones. All of my floor poses were well supported while still feeling grounded and I wasn’t worried about slippage due to too much thickness.

All in all, I would recommend the Manduka eKO Yoga Mat. It is well worth the price and feels good to know you are thinking of Mother Earth at the same time. Overall, I rate it a 5 star yoga mat for home and local studio yoga practice.

  • Its as you read my head! You appear to know so much relating to this, like you composed the manual in it or something like that. I think you could use a few % to drive the material house a little bit, however as an alternative to that, this can be wonderful blog site. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.

    • Looks like you have most of your bases covered for your yoga class. Remember that yoga is normaly done barefoot, so shoes probably won’t be necessary. I would recommend bringing lots of water as well. You can get quite dehydrated, so make sure you drink plenty of water beforehand and take a water bottle with you. You might also want to take a hand towel, or a full size towel to put on top of your mat, in case you get sweaty. It also provides a sanitary layer between you and the borrowed yoga mat. Have fun in your first yoga class!!

  • Any large comfortable cushion to cushion your bones (ankle knees and elbows for various sash-ions or yogic positions is fine. you do not need any special mat. Most people can do it on the flour or on heavily carpeted flour. But in classes they may require a yoga mat so you do not leave dermis on their flouring and you do not pick up some one else’s dermis on you. At home a bed is as good as any other mat. Or a beach towel on a carpeted and padded flour.
