Manduka Yoga Mat Review
There are 2 sides with bumps on each side, on most mats the smaller bumps made to face downwards to grip the floor and prevent the mat form sliding and the bigger bumps made to face upwards to cushion your knees, feet and hands during practicing from slipping. The Manduka black mat pro has a unique dotted surface that keeps the mat from sliding and it maybe looks different from other mat. You also can find a brand label on the up side and you will notice that not every mat has a label on it.
If you want to use it for the first time (after bought it) then you will need to remove its coating. For the instructions, it is included with the yoga mat. After you clean the mat, you will get its stickiness increase. But if your old yoga mat is bad in stickiness, this is the sign that a light coating of body sweat and dust has accumulated on your yoga mat and you need to remove it. You can use any non-solvent soap and water, wash the surface thoroughly and then hang to dry in the sunshine.
It is recommended to buy your own yoga mat, even your gym provides them for you. One of my friends who have been worked in many of the gym told me that most of the mats in the gym are never cleaned, although in a certain place the mats are always clean. If you had your own mattress that means an additional value for you, you do not have to wait to use the mat and you can start to practice either in the gym or in your own home.
Designed from high quality materials, so it will not be slippery, feels comfortable when used and has been certified free of emissions.
