Manduka ProLite Mat: Loving It


Last week I took a yoga class from Rainbeau Mars at Sonya Dakar in Beverly Hills. The highlight: a pretty red Manduka PROlite mat that I got as a gift (goody bag perk).

Okay Yoga Geeks, we know we're all VERY particular about our mats. My purple Hugger Mugger jobber is over 10 years old and it was my mat of choice until...the Manduka eKO Mat came into my life. But that sucker weighs-in at 7 pounds so schlepping it to class is not an option. Subseqently, it's my home practice lover mat -- it's faithful, it's strong, it cushions me when I'm down and provides support when I need it the most. But the whole, I can't take it out in public thing is kind of a drag...

...until I hooked up with the PROlite. It's a real looker -- a take you out and show you off mat that only weighs four pounds. It has a lifetime guarantee, it's sleek, social and gives good grip.

Thanks Manduka.

  2. Good question. As we know the EKoMat does have that rubber stink, but the PROlite is completely fragrance-free. Yeah!

  3. Hi! So glad I saw this post. Can you recommend a yoga mat for me? I don't necessarily like big squishy mats, but the one I have (and I don't know who makes it) is too thin and I need more cushy love on the knees. Any recommendations? One that isn't too $$$? Thanks!

  4. Well I love this one but since it's four pounds and you're in NYC which involves the schlep of the mat, I would just go for a hugger mugger basic squishy purple one.I've had mine for over a decade and it's still swell.

  5. I love to practice exercise, i think this activity is the best option to keep our total welfare and it is very fun. When we exercise frequently we can notice a change not only in our shape but in our mood too. Actually we can improve our sexual performance. When some cases when the erectil dysfunction present like a problem to buy viagra is a great alternative, how ever you must to combine it with exercises and a good food.
