These mats are actually more similar than they are different! Both the Manduka PRO® and PROlite® feature the same performance surface, dense support, and a lifetime guarantee. They have been Manduka’s top-selling mats for 10+ years! So what sets them apart? The differences are found in their weight, thickness and color. The PROlite was designed for yogis who want the look and feel of the Manduka PRO, but prefer a lighter version. Available in several passion-inspiring colors, the PROlite offers superior quality and comfort, just like big brother Manduka PRO, but weighs in at just 4 lbs.
