I started off my yoga journey with a Manduka Prolite and I love how it keeps getting gripper with use. However , while the prolite is ideal for carrying around and sweaty flows, I find myself wishing for a thicker mat whenever I am doing long seated poses in yin yoga.
I bought a Manduka Pro 85'' and I am really digging it especially during this stay-home period. It is wonderfully dense and provides great support for my knees, joints and backwards tumbles. Despite its thickness, I feel stable in my standing postures too. I am very pleased. Despite its hefty tag, I haven't experienced a mat that comes close to the comfort and support the Pro Mat gives. I highly recommend Manduka Mats for anyone with a home-based practice.
