The Almost Perfect mats may differ in appearance and dimensions from the Manduka's manufacturing specification in ways such as:
All the mats have been quality tested and have the same performance as the standard PRO-mats. While the Lifetime Guarantee doesn't apply to "Almost Perfect" PRO-mats, we know they will last (and you will love them) for many years to come!
Manduka PROlite® is a standard-sized, lighter version of the Manduka PRO yoga mat. The yoga mat is easy to transport, can be used outdoors and indoors, and its grip only improves in use. The surface fibre of the carpet is enclosed, i.e. it does not allow dirt or sweat to enter the carpet. Made in Germany from PVC.
A luxuriously dense, mid-size yoga mat for superior comfort and cushioning, the PROlite will never wear out, guaranteed.
To Store: Roll Manduka PROlite mats with the top side (fabric-finish) facing outwards. This keeps the corners of the mat flat when practising.
To Break In: The surface texture of PROlite mats improves with use. Manduka's customers have found that the best way to “break in” their mat is to use it on a daily basis. Another trick is to sprinkle coarse sea salt over your mat, use a light spritz of water, and scrub it down with a stiff brush before allowing to air dry in the sunshine.
To Clean: We recommend using Manduka Mat Renew or any non-solvent household cleaner with a damp cloth or sponge. Hang to dry in the sunshine. DO NOT clean your mat with a garden hose, put in the bathtub or shower, put it in the washing machine, or use a vacuum cleaner - it may break the machine and ruin your mat! If you are ever unsure of a cleaning method, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org - for the best recommendations on mat care.
Designed to last a lifetime (or two), Manduka PRO series yoga mats curb the number of PVC mats that enter landfills every year and reduces overall mat consumption. During the manufacturing of most PVC products, toxic emissions may be released into the air. However, PRO series mats are manufactured through a process that ensures no toxic emissions are released into the atmosphere. The PROlite is certified safe for human contact by OEKO-TEX, an environmental certification agency in Europe for the textile industry. Almost Perfect yoga mats are saved from the landfill, which adds to sustainability.
