How do I stop my Manduka yoga mat from slipping?

I put a generous amount of coarse sea salt on the top (side with the logo on it) and let it sit for 24 hours. Then, I wipe it down in circular motions top to bottom with a damp cloth. I’ve found this method really helps get extra muck off of my mat that’s making me slip.

How do you use mat straps?

Take your yoga strap and wrap it around the mat at one end. Then feed the strap through both D rings and lay the excess out straight. Fold the end of the strap back and feed it through the second D ring. Pull through all of the excess strap and pull tight to fasten.

Why are Manduka yoga mats so expensive?

Expensive yoga mats are expensive for a reason. They are built to last and so they are the only yoga mat you will ever need to purchase. Additionally, as a general rule, the more expensive the yoga mat, the better the materials used are, meaning that it tends to be more eco-friendly with better grip.

Do I need to break in my Manduka mat?

I’d heard that Manduka mats need a little “break-in” time when you first buy them because they’re a little slippery. While this can be achieved through a few months of regular use, Manduka recommends using sea salt to speed up the process.

How long does it take to break in Manduka mat?

about three months
Regarding the PRO mat, Manduka states that it regularly takes about three months of daily practice with a little slipping during this time until the friction of hands and feet has broken the surface. If the mat is used less frequently, the “break in” process will of course take longer as well.
