Twenty years ago Peter Sterios, an architect turned yogi, discovered a simple, elegantly-designed black mat whose unique combination of firm grip and complete support revolutionized his yoga practice. In honor of the yoga masters who inspired him, he sought to share this amazing product with others.
And in the great yoga tradition, these teachers shared their mats with their students, and a true yoga company was born.
Manduka was built on the simple idea that a better yoga mat can make a world of difference.
Designed by yogis, our performance yoga gear and apparel is inspired by the practice, crafted with intention, and is sold in over 70 countries around the world.
