Now=Wow Giveaway | Breeze The Day

Now=Wow Giveaway | Breeze the Day

The world is in motion. We are in motion. The sand, the waves, our hair, our lessons – nothing is stagnant. The winds of change are blowing, will we choose to build a wall or build a windmill?

Now is a time of transition: we as a community are coming into awareness and connectedness like never before. And there is beauty in our transition. It is gentle, awakening and reminds us that we are alive. Less like a gust, more like a BREEZE.

For the last month, we have been challenging you to be present to the magnificent moments hiding right before your very eyes. To see the WOW of NOW. In our final week, we focus our gaze to BREEZE, a color that speaks to release, refreshment and bright ideas.

Use the lens of yoga, and the lens on your camera, to capture how Now=Wow. See the beautiful BREEZE in your everyday world and you could win the full family of Manduka products in BREEZE, including our new non-traditional prop, the unBLOK.

Share your BREEZE-inspired photo on Instagram or Twitter using tag #NowIsWow, or upload it to the Facebook entry page. For every photo submitted, Manduka will make a donation to Off the Mat, Into the World.

For inspiration, revisit in the SHADE that you created the other week. Then get out there, BREEZE the day and let's fully embody this moment in motion.

The Shade In Your World | Now=Wow

This Spring we're challenging you to see the extraordinary in this moment – to find the remarkable hiding right before your very eyes. If we choose to be present to it, NOW has a lot of WOW. So to help inspire you, every week we're giving away Manduka color collections from our Spring Line.

Last week was SHADE, and we were so moved by all the beautiful ways you captured the SHADE in your world that we wanted to share them here – this collection of cool sanctuaries. We hope these inspire you for this week's giveaway, GLOW.

Now=Wow Giveaway | Flow And Glow

Know that post-yoga glow? The one that radiates off your skin when you get up from savasana and hit the sidewalk. You're a little brighter than you were 90 minutes before. Really. That glow IS special to yoga, and when your eyes are open to it, you can see it everywhere.

We're being present to the GLOW happening in the world all around us. Right NOW is pretty WOW, if we choose to see the magnificence of this moment. Maybe it's the sun rising from behind an old building, or a bowl of sweet limes fresh cut at the farmer's market. With the lens of yoga, and the lens of your camera, capture how Now=Wow – warm up to the GLOW and you could win the entire family of Manduka products that color.

Snap a photo of where you see GLOW in your world and share it on Instagram or Twitter using tag #NowIsWow, or upload it to the Facebook entry page. For every photo submitted, Manduka will make a donation to Off the Mat, Into the World.

For Inspiration, check out the POP, PULSE or SHADE that this community saw in last weeks' giveaways. Then get out there, flow and GLOW, and it might open you up to something much bigger.

Now=Wow Giveaway | Cooler In The Shade

Why do you come to your mat? Is it your refuge? Your sanctuary? Maybe it's where you deeply drop in, find awareness and give thanks while all of your worldly cares wait outside. Maybe your mat is your SHADE on a hot summer day.

We're celebrating the moments of clarity that happen when we step out of the blazing distractions and step into the present. The NOW. This moment is special, and yoga helps us see all the little details that make it so marvelous. This week we're challenging you to use the lens of yoga, and the lens of your camera, to see how Now=Wow – it could win you the entire collection of Manduka products in SHADE.

Snap a photo of the spectacular SHADE in your world and share it on Instagram or Twitter using tag #NowIsWow, or upload it to the Facebook entry page. For every photo submitted, Manduka will make a donation to Off the Mat, Into the World.

For inspiration, check out the POP and PULSE that you saw in the last weeks' giveaways. Now get out there, find your SHADE, and maybe it will inspire you to see something much bigger.

Last week was PULSE, and we were so moved by all the beautiful ways you captured the PULSE in your world that we wanted to share them here – the beat practically jumps out of these photos. We hope these inspire you for next week's giveaway, SHADE.
