Bheka Long Life yoga mats offer superior quality and durability. This is due to their density, unique formulation and European origin. The special orange peel texture of these mats creates optimal traction, so you do not slip on them nor stick to them, even when they become moist.
Though the ingredients and processes are secret, all Bheka Long Life mats meet Okeo-Tex 100 certificate standards for environmental safety and lack of toxicity. Also the workers who make them are treated well and are not exposed to any harmful chemicals. Okeo-Tex 100 is the same standard by which European cosmetics are deemed fit for human use. It is a comfort to know that your intimate partner in yoga has been tested and is completely safe.
Bheka Long Life mats have been sold for over a decade to discerning studios and their continued popularity, despite all the newer competition, is a testimony to their durability and other fine features. Made from the same material as the legendary Manduka Black Mat Pro, the long lives of these mats make them a wonderful value and an ecologically sound choice.
They are machine washable with mild detergents and guaranteed to be an excellent surface to practice yoga on for as long as you care to use them.
These mats require a short break in period based on the thin wax coating used to create their unique texture during manufacturing. The best way to remove this coating is to use the mat. After a few weeks of regular use it will begin to give you excellent traction. These mats are 24 inches wide, and about 1/8 of an inch thick for the standard and about 3/16 of an inch thick for the deluxe. They are each 69 inches long.
