The Ananday mat is natural, non-toxic, non-slip, and 100% biodegradable—from the earth, to you, and safely back to the earth.

Because there’s no layer of separation between your practice and your mat. What are you really practicing on? No PVC, no PER, no TPE, no plastic cocktails or toxic chemicals here.

  • Natural, non-toxic, non-slip.
  • Sustainable cork + natural tree rubber base.
  • Bound together by high-temp pressure (READ: no toxic glues!)
  • FREE hemp carry strap. Take your mat wherever you go (go far!)
  • REVERSIBLE. Flip to the tree rubber side for extra traction.
  • 100% biodegradable, including the packaging. From the earth, to you, safely back to the earth. Learn how we pack.

Cork is one of the most earth-friendly materials available. No trees are cut down during harvest. The bark is stripped by hand every 9 years and regenerates itself. A harvested cork oak tree absorbs up to 5x more carbon dioxide than one that isn’t harvested. Cork trees support some of the world’s most biodiverse forests.

Practicing on materials from the earth is grounding. Our hands and feet have marma points or energy pathways. Practicing barefoot (and barehand) connects us with our planet’s subtle energy. Grounding balances biological rhythms, calms the nervous system, and helps our body heal. It’s nature doing its thing.

Description

  • Plant-based — sustainable cork + premium natural tree rubber.
  • Non-toxic — no junk, no toxins, no harsh glues/dyes/inks, and no plastic (ever).
  • Non-slip — Sweat + Cork = Grip. Cork releases an organic grip-enhancing substance when wet so it gets even more grippy when you sweat! No towel needed.
  • Supportive — 4 mm thick base for balance, comfort and support. Keep your wrists and knees happy and healthy.
  • Antimicrobial — cork’s surface naturally removes bacteria and odors. No funky smells.
  • Carefree care — to clean simply spray with a natural mat cleanser and lay flat to dry.
  • Practice ready — no break in period. Rolls out flat and stays put.
  • Zero waste — 100% biodegradable. Good for you, good for mama earth.
  • FREE hemp carry strap — instead of plastic wrap we use a hemp strap to keep the mat rolled for shipping. Win for you, win for our planet! Learn how we pack low waste.
  • TRACTION TIP — spray water around hands and feet before practice for extra grip.
  • *ADVANCED TIP — if you’re practicing inversions like forearm stands and handstands and want to maximize traction, flip the mat over for a grainy rubber texture (similar to a Jade mat).

Care

  • Roll your mat up loosely, don’t fold or crease.
  • With extensive use, surface cracking will occur. This is purely visual and does not affect the firmness or durability of the mat.
  • To clean, simply spray with a natural yoga mat cleanser and lay or hang flat to dry.
  • Cleaning recommended 1x weekly, more frequently with heated classes.

End of life

  • Cork and tree rubber are 100% biodegradable.
  • If and when you’re ready to part with your mat, consider donation or drop it off at a recycling center.

Our products are junk-free, natural, non-toxic. No PVC, no TPE, no synthetics, no plastics. 100% biodegradable and recyclable, including the packaging. From the earth to the earth. Learn how we pack.

Incredible Yoga Mat!

As a newbie to hot yoga (and 215 lb guy), I’ve been slipping and sliding for a few months now. I finally pulled the trigger on the Ananday mat, and could not be happier. It’s grippy, extremely well made, and has great dimensions. Not to mention being planet friendly! I would gladly recommend this to anyone.

My first cork yoga mat and I love it!

So thankful to Ksenia for making the perfect yoga mat. I got my mat about three months ago and been so happy with the grip and its durability. I spend a lot of time on my mat and so happy it's made out of natural materials without any chemicals.

Thank you for your kind review Eliza!! Love seeing your practice in the wild. It's been such a joy to witness your journey from NYC to Hawaii! Keep on

Great mat!

I just received my mat and have been using it for about a week. It grips well and is very comfortable. It is heavy but I Usenet it for home practice so that isn’t a concern for me. Love my purchase!

So glad you're loving your mat Alison! Thank you so much for your review!!

Great yoga mat

I really like the mat. Great for hot yoga and love that it’s natural. I also bought two blocks and they are great also. They are more stable than the cushy ones that are more frequently used. The mat comes with a nice hemp strap that I love.

Thank you for your review Brittany! So thrilled you're loving your mat (+carrier!) and blocks. Happy practicing!

Best mat ever

I was surprised how much I liked this mat - it’s very Zen, meaning no excess towel or fabric to manage. I feel less cluttered in my mind as a result of not having to fix a moving mat/towel under my feet. It smells good. It transports well with hemp strap, I’ve had experience with every yoga mat available on the market and this is the one I select as my favorite. Thank you for caring so much about our planet and for designing a superior yoga mat!

Tricia thank you so much for your kinds words!! So happy you're loving your mat!

6 Months of 3-4x a week so I am confident I have a thorough review. 3 mat comparison

To frame this review, let's visit the competitive set first. This mat was immediately a contender in my arsenal of a Lululemon "The Reversible Mat 5mm" and my Manduka "PROlite 71" Yoga Mat". TLDR The Ananday became the best of both worlds and so now the others gather dust. I originally bought the Manduka because of it being a zero waste, non-toxic, and the claim that it didn't need a towel. However, the grip wasn't as good as the Lululemon so that was my go-to mat for my winter hot vinyasa 4x a week practices. Though that is where the benefits stopped for the Lululemon mat. That mat had a terrible plastic smell for several weeks when I first got it, it often needed the occasional wipe in the middle of class because I sweat a lot, and it wasn't always dry by the time I needed it for the next morning's practice. In swooped the Ananday mat, which has amazing grip and somehow grips even better when the cork gets wet, it has no smell, it is zero waste, it dries rapidly, and people seem to be really drawn to the natural and neutral look of the cork. Quite a few people have asked me where I purchased the mat. I would suggest buying yours now before she sells out. I have no regrets and I would wager a lot of money that you won't either.

Chris thank you for your amazing review!! So ecstatic the mat is a fit! And thank you for spreading the world, it means so much!

Best. Mat. Ever.

Totally non-slip for sweaty hot yoga, supports sensitive knees (I often have to use a blanket for the knees, but not with this mat), great thickness, beautiful, well-made, biodegradable... I've tried so many mats, and this one is undoubtedly my favorite. Love at first use. Using these mats for the rest of my life!

This makes us so incredibly happy to hear!! So glad our mat can support your practice!

Finally, a yoga mat where my hands don't slip!

I've had a hard time finding a yoga mat where my sweaty hands don't slide but this cork yoga mat did the trick! I first tried another brand cork mat that was less expensive but the flip side was not natural rubber, something cheaper, and that other brand mat would not lay flat. The natural rubber backing on this mat makes it substantial, yes, it weighs more, but it's worth it to me to have durability and a mat that lays flat. This mat rolls up nicely, and unrolls perfectly flat. The best part is no slipping! My favorite yoga mat - I have used it regularly for a few months now and hoping that it stands the test of time because it's exactly what I was looking for!

Yesss, we're so happy you found the non-slip magic with us!! (P.S. if you ever want even more grip, you can flip the mat over to the natural rubber side, especially for tricky poses like forearm stand :)
