Manduka Toxic-Free Beginner Yoga Mat
The Begin Mat is a comfortably cushioned, beginner-focused yoga mat that encourages confidence from the ground up. Its reversible and lightweight design features an alignment stripe to help guide poses.
The Begin Mat has a closed-cell surface, which will never absorb moisture. Because of this, if you are warm/sweaty at all, the mat will feel slippery, so we always recommend pairing it with one of our hand towels to absorb moisture and provide extra traction. For towel guidance read our guide to yoga towels.
Crafted in Taiwan from TPE.
- 5mm thick for support + cushioning
- Designed to provide the best start to any yoga practice
- Alignment stripe for proper positioning
- Reversible for practice on both side
- Hygienic closed-cell surface prevents sweat from seeping into the mat - we recommend pairing the Begin mat with one of our equa hand towels or yogitoes hand towels to absorb moisture and increase grip.
- Eco-friendly manufacturing
- 172cm x 61cm; 5mm thick
- Standard 68" (172cm)
