Which side of yoga mat goes down?
The smooth side down reduced slippage on smooth floors. The ribbed side up gives feet a better grip with more surface area. The manufacturer put their logo on the ribbed side for all to see. Or what ever side makes you the most comfortable.
Which Manduka mat is right for me?
So if you don’t have much requirements for your Manduka yoga mat other than durability, your best bets are the Black Mat Pro, ProLite, or the eKO. Manduka rates the Black Mat Pro and the ProLite as the most durable types of Manduka yoga mat, with the eKO SuperLite getting the lowest rating for longevity and durability.
Why do you salt a Manduka mat?
I’ve done a deep clean once or twice by unrolling my mat and placing it on a large beach towel. I put a generous amount of coarse sea salt on the top (side with the logo on it) and let it sit for 24 hours. I’ve found this method really helps get extra muck off of my mat that’s making me slip.
Is it bad to do yoga on carpet?
Practicing balance poses on a carpet is very hard and the lack of support under your feet or hands can be frustrating and possibly lead to injury. Moving through a series of yoga poses directly on a carpeted floor can cause friction burns, scratches and irritated skin.
How often should I clean my yoga mat?
Try to aim for at least once a month for general use, or once a week for regular use. The more you sweat the dirtier your yoga mat will become, and during the warmer weather sweating can be escalated. This may leave your mat feeling (and smelling) less than fresh.
Do I have to salt my Manduka mat?
To break in a Manduka PRO™ mat, we recommend a simple salt bath, as outlined in our how-to video below.
Are Manduka yoga mats worth it?
Buy it if you’re ready to work. The Manduka PRO Yoga Mat, like yoga itself, is an exercise in patience and a labor of love. It’s definitely not for everyone, but if you’re willing to put in the time and effort to break it in, the PRO may be the last yoga mat you ever buy—and that’s definitely worth a $120 price tag.
Which yoga mat is better jade or manduka?
The Manduka PRO has more padding than the Jade mat. It’s thicker by 1 mm. That said, the open-cell, springy texture of the Jade is soft on your knees in low lunges and in seated poses. In terms of cushioning, these mats feel equal. The Showdown: Jade Yoga vs. Manduka PRO.

What is the best color for a yoga mat?
Blue is very comforting, which is why it is a fabulous choice for a yoga mat. All shades of blue promote serenity and peace, as the color blue is very cooling and soothing for most people.
How long does it take to break in a Manduka mat?
There is a break -in period that everyone has to go through with a new mat before that thin film wears off and the slipping is almost completely eliminated. Typically, it takes about three months of daily practice and a “little” bit of slipping during that time so that the friction of feet and hands wears on the mat.
How long do Manduka mats last?
The lifetime of the mat is approximately 10 years of regular use when loved and cared for. Should a PRO™ mat wear out past its useful life from regular use under normal conditions, we will replace the product.
Are Manduka mats slippery?
Yes, it’s a little slippery, to begin with. This is because during the manufacturing process of Manduka PRO mats, a thin, protective layer of film is formed on the top surface.
