My Best Travel Mat: Manduka EKO® SUPERLITE

 I ordered a EKO® SUPERLITE TRAVEL YOGA MAT 1.5MM (Esperance Stripe color Manduka mat) and it came within a few days. I was hesitant to try it, (change and all that), but also excited. Once I tried it, there was no turning back. And my son loves it! I had to order another one to him. 😉 I have no pictures of me travelling with a yoga mat yet – despite the fact that I have received my vaccin, so I am still tired and  not  photogenic yet.. but my son helped me. 🙂

Posture, stability, and balance improvements

The first thing I noticed was that I wasn’t slipping down. My down dogs were so much better! I felt much more stable, strong, and balanced with the grippy surface. 

I replayed some of my newer videos and realized how much better my postures were. I feel like I can accomplish any pose outside too!

For me, the best travel yoga mat would be:

  • foldable,
  • lightweight,
  • durable,
  • easy to clean,
  • and packable.

After sifting through reviews and comparing various travel yoga mats, the Manduka travel mat had all the features I was looking for in a great travel mat.

As a very awesome bonus, the yoga mat is made from sustainably harvested tree rubber and no toxic chemicals are used to soften the rubber according to their website.

Although the thinness of this travel yoga mat is what makes it so portable and lightweight, at only 1.5 mm thick, it might not be enough cushion for you. If this is the case for you, you could always put a towel underneath it to add cushion as other eKO yogis recommend.

Also, this yoga mat is quite sticky! Usually that’s a great thing, especially for when you’re super sweaty, but it may make some yoga transitions less ideal such as any that involves shifting your feet.

Lightweight and Portable / The Manduka travel mat weights only 2.2 lbs making it quite lightweight and portable for luggage of any size.

Durable / After reading reviews of people who used this travel mat for years, the Manduka brand seemed like the best bet when it came to durable yoga mats.

Price / Of course, there cheaper travel yoga mats out there, but considering this one is €40 (as of June 2021) and uses sustainable rubber, it doesn’t seem to pay to go any cheaper.
