Happy 10 Year Anniversary, Coil Yoga!

We recently found out that COIL Yoga, a studio in Fresno, CA that proudly sells Manduka gear, is celebrating the 10th anniversary of their studio, as well as the 10th anniversary of their relationship with Manduka!

Katie Flinn, the owner of COIL Yoga fondly remembers meeting Peter Sterios and learning about the Black Mat:

I met Peter in 2002 through a mutual friend of mine and a former student of his. We traveled to San Luis Obispo, CA to visit one of his earlier yoga studios and took a weekend workshop with him. I remember doing some really INTENSE asanas for my feet, even balancing on my toe knuckles! He had this thick black mat at his studio that he was using and I had some wimpy mat that did nothing to spare my poor toes. Later on that year I visited Peter for a private lesson and remember getting a tour of the Manduka warehouse – AKA his garage. Since then, I have only ever sold Manduka products at COIL Yoga. I feel those mats have been at the foundation of my yoga studio, my yoga practice, and my feet (literally)!

The reason I have only sold Manduka products is not just because of my loyalty to Peter as one of my first REAL yoga teachers, but also because I’ve always been impressed with the products’ quality and durability. I also loved the personal connection I had for so many years with Sarah, one of Peter’s first employees… She really helped build the personal touch for Manduka that made it so easy to keep doing business with them.

What I love about Manduka is that it is such a great example of what we can do in this country. We take dreams and find the means to make them our reality. I was always impressed with Peter’s commitment to growing the company with integrity and a continued passion for the quality of Manduka products. Having a good yoga mat is a great metaphor for life. We need to be able to trust that the foundations we stand on, sit on and relax into will support us through all the falls, slips, slides, and really amazing moments in life! I just started using the new Manduka PRO Black & Light that you just came out with; I loved having the option to “brighten” up my mat. I still use my Manduka PRO 85”, but after 10 years of staring at black, I was excited to add some color to my practice!

We are so grateful to have COIL Yoga as a member of this awesome community, and we loved hearing Katie’s story about seeing the Black Mat PROs in Peter’s garage so long ago.

Join COIL Yoga this Saturday, March 31st, as they celebrate their 10 year anniversary, and enjoy a Free Yoga Day on Sunday, April 1st, from 8am – 5pm!
