I researched long and hard before I invested in a yoga mat. For quality mats, my choice came down between the Manduka PROlite v. the Jade Harmony. Both are 3/16 thick and weigh about the same (Jade is heavier by 1/2 lbs). I ended up buying the Manduka Prolite Amore because it was cheaper, closed-cell (less bacteria, easier to clean), and has a lifetime guarantee (for the amount of money, I want a mat that lasts)! When the mat arrived, like the other reviews indicated, it was super slippery (there was non-existant smell; it didn't bother me). I gave it three or four washes in the shower, coarse salt scrubs, and 3/4 uses per week with mat cleaner wipe downs. After two months, it is less slippery than it used to be HOWEVER I still slip on it in a vinyasa/power yoga class. I don't consider myself to be a heavy sweat-er, but my feet and hands slip during most poses and I have to constantly search for "dry" space on my mat (I almost always slip/fall to my death in wheel pose). The constant slipping has caused unnecessary strain on my wrists to keep my body in place during various poses.

If you sweat minimally, Manduka prolite is a great mat - great colors, lasts a long time, and feels very study/great cushion during practice. However, if you sweat at all during class, I highly recommend going the Jade route. I just returned my Manduka and purchased a Jade - yes, everything sticks to it, it is open celled (greater risk of bacteria accumulating), and has a strong rubber smell in the beginning - but no slipping! A silp-free downward dog feels heavenly after months of constant readjustment on the Manduka. I'm not sure how the Jade will hold up with constant use, but it is the mat my studio recommends and even if it breaks down after 1 year of use, it is probably a good idea to get a new mat (if purely for hygienic reasons). While yogitoes might solve my slippage problem, it also has grip-to-mat problems. For me, I'd rather focus on my practice than focus on not falling.

Sierra at Manduka just received my returned mat. She stated that I did indeed wear the film off, but the texture of both sides of my mat were unlike the norm. She offered to send me another ProLite which would be the correct texture, but I decided to go with the eKo as I heard great things about it. I will say that Mankuka's customer service is the best I've experienced. They are very committed to having satisfied customers and even go through the trouble of practicing on your returned mat to see what it is that wasn't working for you. So I feel that if you are one in many that get a mat like mine that was slippery, you will be in excellent hands to get the mat you will be happy with. I'm looking forward to practicing with my eKo.

I rarely give reviews, but I felt this is important if you are a serious yogi. I treated myself with a Manduka mat for my birthday after hearing so much praise about them. I've had mine 4 months and I have done everything to make it less slippery: Use the cleanser, scrubbing it, laying it the sun for HOURS...out of desperation, I used Magic Erasers on it hoping to remove the shiny film on top. I finally resorted to CONSTANTLY wiping my hands on a towel before each asana...what a way to break a flow. Those that are in my class that have this particular Manduka all use a towel on top. I've gone through countless cheap mats without ever having to use a towel on top after 2 weeks of breaking in. I practice 90 minute yoga everyday and I still slip. It wasn't until someone shared my mat for a pose and commented "This is the slipperiest mat in the world! How do you practice on it?" that made me come here to review and look into returning it to Manduka (even though i purchased it via Amazon).

After carefully reading the reviews I decided to ignore the negative ones and go ahead with a purchase of a Manduka ProLite mat. But then it all began. The slow realization that I've just spent $80.00+ on a new yoga mat I'll never be able to use.

I purchased my mat from a retail store in Chicago, who won't take it back because I went through the salt scrub process Manduka told me to do.

I tried everything to make this mat not slippery as a soaped up marble floor, but after months of trying to use it and having to use a towel or another mat provided by the studio I've given up.

I'm out $80 dollars and I highly recommend, if you sweat, to avoid this mat. For gentle yoga, or yoga where you do not perspire this is a great mat. It doesn't absorb sweat so it theoretically stays very clean, which is fantastic. But if you sweat on it you will not get past the point where you begin to perspire.

I wish I would have listened to the other (few) negative reviews rather than assuming that since most reviews were positive I would have a positive experience with my mat.

I've also talked to several people at my yoga studio and they all agree that these mats are useless without a towel. Hopefully Manduka will give me a discount on one of their towels since my mat is useless without it.

I can happily end this review by telling you that the people at Manduka are very honest and helpful and they went as far as sending me a towel to use on my mat for no charge. For their kindness and understanding I am tremendously thankful.

Happy Yoga!
