The Manduka welcOMe Yoga Mat supports your lifelong yoga practice from the very start. Designed with soft and lightweight cushioning, a reversible dry grip surface that lets you practice on either side, and an alignment stripe to help with proper positioning. It is a supportive, sustainable and "welcome" addition to any new practice. The welcOMe Mat is a thick and supportive premium yoga mat that is constructed with the beginner in mind. Portable enough for travel, yet densely cushioned for supreme comfort and joint protection, this durable mat provides a solid foundation from the ground up. It is free of solvents and toxic glues, and made with energy efficient manufacturing. Keep your mat in the best condition by wiping it down after every practice with Manduka's All Purpose Mat Wash. Never soak, shower or submerge your mat in water. Store in a cool, dry place.
