If you’ve been getting into the world of virtual fitness classes lately, you may have found yourself in need of a new yoga mat. There are tons of options out there (though many are selling out — the popular Jade Level 1, for instance, is now impossible to find), but when we talked to yoga instructors about their favorites, one brand came up again and again: Manduka. Everyone from yogi Kyle Miller to Y7 instructor Kristen Nichols are fans of the brand (Nichols calls it “quality” and says the mats are “durable”) for practice both at home and in their studios. This SuperLite mat from the brand is now just $45 (a very good deal, considering yoga mats are currently selling out across the internet) and has an absorbent microfiber layer on top, which will come in handy for sweatier workouts.
