Bheka Long Life Yoga Mats

Bheka Long Life Yoga Mats

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 Yoga Mat - a beautiful mat for your beautiful practice.

     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.

I have been using Bheka Long Life mats for the last 20 years. Back when I first started practicing they only had them in light blue and they were the standard at Iyengar centers. As the years have gone on, I tried all the different types of mats that have hit the market but always come back to my Bheka.

When I opened a yoga center in 2007, I did extensive research into how yoga mats are made because I wanted the center to be as green as possible. What I discovered was surprising: The eco mats on the market are not actually all that eco. While they start with rubber instead of PVC, the process that takes that raw material to a final product remains hidden as a trade secret. They undergo a chemical process that we are not privy too. But Bheka mats are made under the Okeo-Tex standard. Which means that the manufacturing process is completely transparent and monitored throughout.

I can say that, without a doubt, Bheka mats are the most durable. I have had the same set that I opened the center with eight years ago. If I had used any other mat then they would have needed to be replaced by now. Not only do they last, but they function better than other mats that can easily get slick when folks sweat.
In a word: Bheka is the best. And that they can only be found on Yoga Lifestyle is a plus. I am always looking to support independent yoga businesses instead of the big box outlets. Having a personal relationship to the companies that I do business with is something I really value. With Yoga Lifestyle and Bheka, I feel like its not just business, but yoga.

I opened my studio in December 2001 with the Bheka Standard Long Life as my studio mat. Recently when placing another mat order with Ray of Yoga Life Style our conversation because of circumstance, led us to marvel at the rather short lifespan of our modern technology, phones specifically. I reminded Ray that the reason he has not heard from me in 14 years was because his mats are only just now needing to be replaced. They have lasted 14 years! I cannot recall the last time I had anything for that length of time before replacing - oh yes, the house I live in!
