Manduka eko superlite folding travel yoga mat

Live life to its fullest, that’s GERTY. “Women who play” can mean anything to anyone. Go for a hike, take a nap, have coffee with a close friend or go get your groove on. That’s what GERTY is about. You can find sassy sweats, yoga wear, designer denim and more t-shirts than a girl can handle. Go for a run or take a Pilates class. We don’t care, really. Just have a good attitude and look darn cute while you’re doing what ever it is you do. Cuz as women we need to remember that playing isn’t just for kids. Besides, we do it best…don’t we?

The Manduka eko superlite folding travel yoga mat. This little gem of a mat has some pretty unique features. It has a travel-optimized design- folds easily to fit into a purse, bag or travel suitcase and is lightweight & compact. It is made from sustainable natural tree rubber and is 100% biodegradable. The mat also has a slip resistant grip with its natural non-slip texture, even with perspiration. Its durable design of tightly woven mesh resists stretching and its closed cell surface prevents flaking. All in all, best yoga mat out there!
