Manduka LiveOn Yoga Mat Review
PLUSfoam is the essential element in Manduka LiveOn, it is Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) based material. In layman terms, this material is 100% recyclable and a better alternative to traditional foam, rubber and plastic.
This mat is 5mm thick, weighs 2lbs 3oz and is 71″ long by 24″ wide. They are available in four distinctive colors and they are Rational, Thunder, Midnight and Arise.
Yes, that sounds fancy!!
It does offer good padding underneath with 5mm thickness. One thing is for sure, this yoga mat is lightweight and will be easier if you walk/bike or commute in public transportation with the mat for your yoga classes.
We prefer the closed-cell design, this prevents the oils and your sweat drops from accumulating inside the mat.
You don’t have to take the pains of deep cleaning this mat on a regular basis. Just use a mat spray on it or wipe it down with a damp cloth.
Manduka LiveOn yoga mat is suited for restorative classes or beginner classes, inclusive of Bikram style classes.
You will notice the sweat spots, don’t worry, just wipe it off; sure we consider this as a negative point. If we overlook that part, this mat is just awesome.
This mat stays stable on stone, hard wood floors and carpet; and it does not budge from its place, during your practice.
We truly appreciate Maduka’s eco initiative and like its undeniable grip feature. To sum it up this mat is latex-free, eco-friendly and is a right choice for people with such specific needs.
