"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!"  Anton

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.


  • 72" x 24" x 4mm | 6.4 lbs
  • Natural, non-toxic, plastic-free.
  • Sustainable cork + natural tree rubber base.
  • Bound together by high-temp pressure (aka no toxic glues).
  • Non-slip. Cork releases an organic grip-enhancing substance when wet so it gets even more grippy when you sweat. No towel necessary.
  • 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 odors.
  • Comes with a hemp carry strap instead of plastic wrap. Take your mat wherever you go (go far!)
  • Reversible. Flip to the tree rubber side for extra traction.
  • 100% biodegradable, including the packaging. Learn how we pack. 

*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.

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. Yes please.

  • 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.
  • 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.

We love our products and think you will too! If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, return it for a full refund or exchange within 14 days. No questions asked.

Love it!

Ok so TMI but I sweat like a pig but ever since i got this mat, I have no problems slipping and sliding everywhere like my old mat. It’s also a great icebreaker for others to become more eco-conscious of their practice!

Really great yoga gear!

I am so happy to have this mat! It's even more grippy than my old Manduka mat, and I love that the materials are more earth friendly. I know the owner, and am so grateful that she has put her love, time, and energy into making products that align with the values of yoga so that we all have the option to to make more ethical purchases for our practices

Best Yoga and Pilates Mat

The Ananday is the best Yoga and Pilates mat I ever had! I’ve had many mats but this one gives me the perfect support for my practice. The top layer is cork and tree rubber as a base and it feels like I’m standing on a soft yet stable surface. The softness makes it less harsh for your wrists and knees joints . The mat isn’t heavy making it easy to carry and comes with a hemp strap so great to take anywhere. Most mats start to smell after few months of use, however, Ananday yoga mat doesn’t hold on to bacteria. Also to mention the entire mat is planet friendly and comes in a 100% biodegradable package. I use the package to storage my mat after practicing. I highly recommend Ananday.

Perfection i!!

I just had to try this cork mat from Ananday. Everyone at my studio seemed to have this mat and was raving about it. I needed to purchase one for myself and am I thrilled that I did! After about five minutes of practice, as soon as you get a bit warm the grip is PERFECT! I can finally do poses without slipping!! There is NO odor. That is a huge plus for me as all my previous mats smelled no matter how much I washed and sprayed them. This cork mat is so very clean and sustainable. I LOVE that it is all natural, is good for the earth, is not expensive and has a wonderful company standing behind the product. There is nothing negative about this mat! It is life changing for your practice. Thank you!

Works great

I've used the mat a few times so far. All at home doing barre or yoga. This is the first mat I have bought without there being any texture on top so I was worried about sliding around. My hands and feet got sweaty but they didn't budge. It's heavier than the other mats I've owned which is fine. I like that there was no chemical smell during the first few new uses. Since I've used it at home and have pets my only complaint is that the pet hair sticks to the bottom. I'm happy with my purchase.

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!
