Manduka® is more than eco-conscious yoga gear. Way more. We are joyology—a study in living. Our mission starts on the mat. Founded on the simple idea that a better yoga mat can make a world of difference, Manduka is the leader in yoga mats, towels, yoga props, and yoga mat carriers. A decade ago, Peter Sterios, an architect turned yogi, discovered a simple, elegantly designed black mat offering a unique combination of firm grip and unparalleled support that revolutionized his yoga practice. He sought to share this amazing product with others, and in the great yoga tradition, yoga teachers around the world shared with their students, and a true yoga company was born. yogitoes(r), a collection within Manduka®, created and is well known for the Skidless® yoga mat — an invention that solved the yogi’s dilemma of slipping on their mat while practicing yoga. The patented Skidless design is a super absorbent microfiber towel with “dots that grip so you don’t slip.” Since then, yogitoes has continued to create innovative products that have come from need and inspiration to help yoga practitioners of all levels and yoga styles grow their practice. Known for its legendary, best-selling Black Mat PRO, Manduka® mats and yoga accessories are unrivaled in the marketplace and used by yoga pros and yogis of all abilities in more than 35 countries worldwide. Manduka: for your practice and for our world. Namaste.
