Product Review – Manduka Pro Yoga Mat

When it comes to product reviews, we don’t mess around. All of the items we review are put through the ringer of everyday use. You can trust that our reviews are non-biased and completely honest. Let’s get started.

I have been using the Manduka Black Mat PRO for four months now, and during that time I have fallen in love over and over again. There were so many positive attributes to this mat – quality, thickness and eco-friendly construction – that I knew it was well worth the investment of $108.

I must warn you that if you are looking for a light travel mat, this might not be the mat for you as it is heavy. The mat weighs a whopping 8.5 pounds, which doesn’t bother me because I know that I’m carrying this mat gives me a good core and upper body workout before I step foot in the studio. 🙂

Here are three things I love about this mat:

1. The 6” mm thick mat provides enough cushion to ease pressure on my wrist, which is weakened from a past injury. Just because it is cushioned does not mean that you will wobble around on this mat. It is sturdy enough to allow me to maintain my balance and feel grounded during my practice.

2. The mat is truly non slip. I have never, not once slipped on this mat. I love the suction-cup like dots on the bottom of the mat that keeps it in place, even on hard wood floors or carpeting.

3. This mat comes with a lifetime guarantee. Um, hello, how could I pass that up? I know that I can truly stand behind a company and trust that their products are meant to last when they offer a lifetime guarantee on their products (from normal wear).

If you are looking for a yoga mat that is thick, durable and will last you for many years to come, this mat is for you.
