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!
All PRO Series mats have a closed-cell surface, which will never absorb moisture. Because of this, if you are warm/sweaty at all, the mat might feel slippery. If this happens we recommend pairing it with a hand towel to absorb moisture and provide extra traction. If you practice hot yoga, we recommend a mat towel for full mat coverage.
Manduka PRO "Almost Perfect" 6 mm is an ultra-dense and spacious performance yoga mat that has unmatched comfort, cushioning and durability.
The yoga mat is crafted in Germany from PVC. The PRO Series is certified STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®️ (12.HUS.17706 | Hohenstein HTTI) to keep you and your family safe from harmful substances.
To Store: Roll Manduka PRO 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 PRO 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 it 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 it 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 email@example.com - 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 PRO 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.
