It’s no surprise January is a strong proponent of the “new year, new me” mentality. In fact, the first month of the year always has people purchasing rowing machines and treadmills for some at-home cardio.
But you don’t have to wait until the new year to kickstart your fitness resolutions and goals — especially with Manduka.
The highly acclaimed wellness brand is on a sustainable mission to redefine the meaning of fitness.
“We believe that yoga is for everyone — and that no matter who you are or why you choose to practice, Manduka will be there with the product innovation, education, and community that enables you to both experience and share the transformative power of yoga,” per the brand’s mission statement.
So it makes sense that we consider Maduka your one-stop-shop for all things fitness gifts. From its top-rated Pro Yoga Mat to its classic clothing catalog, we recommend refreshing your wardrobe and fitness closet ahead of the new year.
Ahead, shop our 10 favorite items from the brand. Rest assured that these items will all be holiday hits (and ones we’re currently adding to our wishlists).
For the yogi you know, pick up the Manduka PRO Yoga Mat. Not only does it come in a full suite of colors, but there are two sizes to choose from: standard at 71 inches and long at 85 inches.
What’s more, it boasts ultra-dense cushioning that helps provide support, stability, and joint protection. Its closed-cell material seals out moisture and bacteria, while its design is easy-to-clean. Plus, the Manduka PRO Yoga Mat has a lifetime guarantee.
The Yogitoes+ Repreve Yoga Mat Towel is a high-performance item impressively made from 11 post-consumer recycled plastic bottles to help eliminate some of the 35 billion plastic bottles thrown away each year.
Uniquely, Yogitoes+ is the brand’s most eco-conscious yoga towel that doesn’t compromise absorption, wet grip and durability standards.
With this yoga block set made of sustainable cork, you’ll be balancing and beaming through and through. They’re of the highest quality, too, so rest assured you’re receiving a firmness not typical in your standard block. Plus, you’ll feel secure and supported.
The Unfold Yoga Strap not only makes an excellent stocking stuffer, but it’s an essential addition for stretching out your legs and quads. This strap has an updated square ring buckle and is made from 100% cotton. For just $14, it’s worth the grab.
Don’t these leggings look absolutely divine? Manduka’s Presence Legging features a stylish and coveted high-rise design with just the right amount of compression to feel secure and comfortable. Plus, it boasts two convenient side pocks to take you from the yoga studio to the street.
We’re beyond obsessed with the Upward Mockneck Pullover. From its turtleneck design to oversized sleeves, it’s the perfect top to pair with your best leggings (namely, Manduka’s Presence Legging) and even fitting for a weekend brunch.
For the yoga lover you know, who’s also a jet-setter, Manduka’s eKO Superlite Travel Yoga Mat comes in under $50 and is one of the most perfect gifts to offer your loved one this year. Namely, it comes in an array of colors, provides a naturally grippy surface and is — impressively — sustainably made from the rubber tree Hevea Brasiliensis.
Give your yoga practice a boost with the Enlight Round Booster. It doubles as a meditation pillow with its lightweight, traditional design. Also unique about this less-than-$100 gift is its durable fiber fill that creates a firm cushion and years-lasting essential.
Yes, Manduka carries blankets – and we couldn’t be happier. Its Cotton Blanket is stitched with Peruvian recycled cotton — making this ultra-sustainable — and provides both versatility and coverage. Plus, its luxurious rustic fabric moves the way you want to.
We’re beyond obsessed with Manduka’s PRO Extra Large Yoga and Exercise Mat, which makes yoga anywhere possible and seriously upgraded. It supplies the foundation and stability you need; we especially adore its portable design.
