The Origin Story
WHY…Cork is a renewable, sustainable material, which comes from the bark of a Cork Oak Tree. There are no toxic chemicals used in the manufacturing of these cork yoga blocks.
The Manduka Lean Cork Yoga Block is slimmer than its full-size counterparts, but it’s equally supportive. The thinner width is comfortable to hold and easier to travel with, yet provides a solid, stable base for your practice. No need to compromise on quality, your yoga nor your planet!

Since the beginnings of the Black Mat, Manduka has been inspired and guided by a responsibility to reduce global consumption by making better products that last longer.
Their design approach is rooted in principles of conservancy and transparency, creating mats, towels, props and apparel while also making every possible effort to minimize environmental waste. They’re constantly searching for innovative partners and updated technologies to further respect the land upon which we place our mats and our intentions.
As a company, they understand the impossibility of leaving no environmental footprint. But what they do commit to is 100% transparency, being clear about the decisions they make and, most importantly, where they have room to improve.
Manduka consistently strive to be better, stronger, kinder and more conscious of their actions and their global impact.
Sustainability isn’t simply a story.
It’s part of Manduka’s DNA and part of their evolving practice.
