Fitted, Not Restricted
If you’ve ever practiced in a regular old tee or tank, you know the down dog struggle is real. Their tops stay where you put them, never twisting, bunching or riding up when you least expect it. Practice on.
Contoured chest keeps your shirt in place without feeling tight or restricting your movement.
Strategic patterning, breathable mesh panels and melange fabric camouflage sweat from the inside out. Like it never happened in the first place.
Bring It In
Slight taper at the hips prevents your shirt from going upside down with you.
Their shorts are designed with an extended range of motion and full coverage to help you stay focused during even the most challenging moments of your practice.
Soft and Adjustable
Knitted waistband with interior drawstring feels soft against your skin and allows you to adjust the fit.
Keep Your Cool
Strategically placed knit mesh panel at your lower back helps air flow and prevent overheating.
Support From Within
Full length interior gusset increases your range of motion no matter which way you go.
Slightly tapered leg openings keep your shorts from awkwardly riding up, especially during inversions.
What Makes This "Yoga" Clothing
Best practice(s) for men
Their men’s clothing is inspired by the old-school athletic gear they know you love, yet designed specifically for your practice. Because let’s be honest, basketball shorts may be comfortable but they don’t leave much to the imagination on the mat.
All their men’s gear is minimally constructed for your comfort. Each piece has exactly the right support for your practice and yet still feels remarkably free.
Fit to stay
When your top's too loose, down dog also becomes known as "eating shirt" pose. Keep things in place with our contoured chest design and a fit tailored specifically for men.
Slimmer hip and tapered leg made just for you, just for yoga. And because they know you're moving rightside up and upside down, they included a stop point on all shorts to let you worry less and flow more.
Fit for Yoga
Inspired by the legendary Black Mat. Influenced by teachers, near and far. Created to match the strength of their bodies. Yet yield to the softness of their breath. Every piece, designed to support your practice. Every thread, attached to an intention. Every fiber, consciously chosen for a fit that both feels good and does good.
Because what you wear to practice should free you, not constrict you. Support you, not distract you. Twist with you. Breathe with you. Lay still with you. And perhaps most importantly, represent you. Finally, a line of yoga apparel that's as fit for yoga as you are.
Made for Yoga
Manduka is made for yoga. Made for the present. For being here. For fresh starts and long journeys. Made for inverting perceptions, stretching souls, twisting standards. For disconnecting and reconnecting in the same breath. For bending to the point of almost breaking and for realizing your edge is much further than you think.
Made for falling in love with yourself and sometimes falling on your face. Made for laughing and then trying again. Made for the way you live. Pose to pose. Breath to breath. Moment to moment.
Made to honor the practice and the planet. To be conscious of your intentions, actions and reactions. Made to conserve, preserve and replenish. So you may leave this place just a little better than before. Inspired by the practice. Crafted with intention. Made for yoga.
Made for Good
They believe that the practice and the planet are as intertwined with one another as their own bodies and souls. To honor one, they must honor both. Everything they create is consciously designed to strengthen that connection. They draw inspiration from the natural wonders around them and in return, they seek to preserve the earth upon which they place their mats.
An important part of this approach is their focus on quality over quantity, making better products that last longer. That doesn't mean their products are perfect, it means they're constantly striving to improve them, and in the process, themselves.
The Manduka Story
Sometimes it's the bumps in the road that end up defining your journey. This is the story of Manduka, a company founded on the simple idea that a better yoga mat could make a world of difference.
In 1997, Peter Sterios, an architect turned yogi, discovered a simple, elegantly designed black mat whose 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.
Peter had always been the beneficiary of great generosity from other yoga teachers. To repay that debt, he sent mats as gifts to many of the teachers he admired including Erich Schiffmann, Rod Stryker, Angela Farmer, Victor Van Kooten, Rodney Yee, and Shiva Rea. The teachers who inspired Peter were his first customers. And in the great yoga tradition, they shared their mats with their students, and a true yoga company was born. Peter chose the name Manduka in homage to his teacher and mentor, Shandor Remete, whose core practice and teaching always included the ancient Hatha Yoga Pradipika pose, Mandukasana or frog. The first time Peter heard and repeated the name of the pose he experienced a sense of childlike joy and delight as the sound rolled off his tongue. The word and the pose were mirror images, simultaneously playful and profound. The joy of Manduka is now spoken in so many countries, all over the world.
The quality and performance of Manduka mats and yoga accessories are still unmatched in the marketplace. They are still crafted using simple, enduring, natural, and whenever possible, renewable materials and a fine attention to detail. Manduka is a company built by and for yoga teachers and their students. They are still evolving, still introducing new products, and still celebrating the spirit and wisdom of yoga teachers and their students. From the road less traveled, something great and meaningful has arrived.
At Manduka they believe it's possible to honor your practice and the Earth. That's why they take the hard road to find sustainable product solutions. Together they celebrate the deep and profound bond yoga shares with the world. Whether it's zero waste and emissions free manufacturing, the sourcing of recycled materials, or creating the first ever 100% recyclable mat, you can be sure that your Manduka yoga gear will not only keep your practice thoughtfully grounded, but do so while leaving a very small footprint. Each detail is a conscious decision. Practice on.
