Currently in stock: (3) Black mats; (1) Ember mat; (1) Sage mats; (1) Magic mat. Towels in every color. Did we mention that these make great gifts? Well, they do.

The Black Mat® PRO is awesome. It’s like the ultimate black dress. You never have to worry that it might ride up or bunch up on you. You don’t have to think about it. To me, the Black Mat® PRO is an affordable luxury. I’ve had other yoga mats, but I tell everyone I know to try the Black Mat® PRO. It puts other mats to shame. – K Flynn


The PRO Black Black. The mat Beerasana loves.

Backed by a Lifetime Guarantee, these babies weigh in at a hefty 7.0 lbs. They’re 71″ long (5’11”); 26″ wide; and1/4″ thick. (That’s thick).  By the way, the line is all called “Black” even if they’re not black in color. Ok? I know, it’s weird.

“The legendary Black Mat PRO is celebrating 15 years as the world’s finest yoga mat. There is a reason the Black Mat PRO inspires such passion in its users – this denser, thick yoga mat has unparalleled comfort and cushioning. With the superior non-slip fabric-like finish you expect from high-performance yoga mats, and simple, elegant design, the Black Mat PRO will revolutionize your practice. When you want the very best yoga mat, the mat chosen first by yoga teachers throughout the world, there really is only one choice – the Manduka Black Mat PRO, for your practice and for our world.”

Sage! For when you need to cleanse your practice.


Same mat, but in non-black colors. Here’s their green pitch: “Manduka PRO series yoga mats, designed to last a lifetime (or two), curb the amount of PVC mats that enter landfills every year and reduces overall mat consumption.

“Also, during the manufacturing of most PVC products, toxic emissions may be released into the air.

There’s also purple, or as they call it, MAGIC.

“However, PRO series mats are manufactured through a process that ensures no toxic emissions are released into the atmosphere. The Black Mat¨ PRO is certified safe for human contact by OEKO-TEX, an environmental certification agency in Europe for the textile industry.”

There is no substitution. As far as i’m concerned, no other mat can ever take it’s place. I’ve had mine for 15 years. It’s been all over India, Bali, Japan, Thailand, Australia & the US. It’s well worth carrying it everywhere. I tried the purple travel mat once & left it behind in India. It’s just not the same. – bindifry

The Pro Black EMBER. The mat we’d buy if ours would ever die, which they won’t.

eQua MAT TOWELS: $45

We know, $45 seems expensive for a towel. But if you’ve ever had to use a beach or bath towel in class, you know it’s less than ideal (though definitely better than nothing). Simple fact is, we sweat a lot in class, and a wet mat is a sad mat. These towels don’t bunch up like regular towels do, and they’re nice looking.

Take your pick. Or buy one for every day of the week.

“Super-absorbent, non-slip and quick drying, the eQua Mat Towel spreads over the yoga mat to provide a slip-resistant, hygienic surface. Designed for mats up to 71” long. Works great for all types of yoga including hot yoga and Vinyasa Flow Yoga.

“Manduka eQua – a towel for life – is the ‘next generation’ in multi-purpose towels. Extremely lightweight, yet plush, durable, super-absorbent, non-slip and quick drying, the eQua microfiber towel outperforms ordinary cotton or polyester towels – on the mat, at the gym, on a mountain, or on the road.

“Now thicker and plusher for better absorbency and slip-resistance, the new & improved eQua towel is the perfect companion to all Manduka high performance yoga mats. The eQua Mat Towel spreads over any yoga mat to add traction to sweaty palms and feet. The versatile eQua doubles as a germ-free gym towel to absorb perspiration, as a meditation shawl so you can stay warm during cool sitting sessions, or as a highly absorbent travel or hiking towel which takes up a minimum amount of packing space. Slip-resistant, when moist, this super-soft microfiber towel provides extra grip for sweaty hands and feet.”
