It’s no secret that at Yoga Journal, we love Manduka’s Pro Yoga Mat. The ideal combination of cushion and stickiness, we turn to this mat again and again. However, the ($129) price for this mat can be a little steep, especially for a new practitioner. When there are $25 mats everywhere, you want to be sure you’re investing in a good, high-quality mat that will last you a lifetime. We get it. But if you’ve been looking for your sign to consider pulling the trigger on the Manduka Pro Yoga Mat (or to stock up on a few to gift to friends and family), this is it. For Amazon Prime Day, on July 12 and 13, the Manduka Pro Yoga Mat is on sale for 15 percent off. Instead of the usual $129, you can snag this mat for $109.65.

Why we love the Manduka Pro Yoga Mat
Named one of our best yoga mats of 2021, the Manduka Pro Yoga Mat checks a lot of key boxes when it comes to your practice surface. Made through sustainable processes that don’t release any toxic emissions, this mat is constructed from PVC that doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals. Additionally, the closed-cell design ensures it can hold up against wear and tear. And at six millimeters thick, this yoga mat offers cushion for your joints, without slipping and sliding all over the studio floor.
With almost 6,000 global reviews (and almost 5,000 five-star reviews), this yoga mat is a favorite of yogis shopping on Amazon. While multiple reviews note the break-in time for this mat (it can be a labor of love, after all), its long-lasting abilities are clear. “This mat has great cushion, but is also dense enough to make even the most difficult balancing poses a breeze over more squishy mats,” says one reviewer. “I have fallen in love with this mat and if you are a dedicated yogi, it is absolutely worth a try. Just be ready for a tough road at first that pays off tremendously at the end. There is a reason this is called the ‘pro’ mat.”
Other Manduka products to consider on Amazon Prime Day
If you already have Manduka’s Pro Yoga Mat, there are other great Manduka products on sale for Amazon Prime Day. Manduka’s eKO Superlite Yoga Mat, typically listed at $49, is marked down to $41.65 for Prime Day, a 15 percent reduction. Travis Eliot, who frequently travels around the world for yoga classes and retreats, previous told Yoga Journal this mat was his go-to choice. Since six millimeters can be a bit thick for travel, this 1.5-millimeter lightweight version makes for easy transport.
Instead of letting sweat drip all over your mat (and having to clean it off later), you may want to add Manduka’s eQua Yoga Mat Towel to your Amazon cart. (Especially if you’re craving some additional grip on your mat.) This towel is currently on sale for $34, a 15 percent discount from its typical price point.
