The 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.
