This Fall is about returning to YOU, allowing yourself to indulge and provide that self care that you so greatly deserve. It’s about giving yourself permission to receive, taking in a quite moment and welcoming delicious and decadent goodness into your life, body and practice.
Over the past two weeks we’ve been lucky enough to receive a glimpse of how our yoga community embraces the moment, welcomes life with open arms and proudly accepts and embraces their uniqueness.
Thank you to all who opened their hearts and shared your inspiring stories with us.
Here is a photo of our winner, @Kaysqui embracing herself as a US soldier and yogi and a few of our other favorite #LetsGoThere Instagrams:
@Kaysqui - Winner!
Over the next two weeks, we’d love to see how you pamper yourself and give into your indulgent dreams and wishes. Tag your Instagram photos with #LetsGoThere and @MandukaYoga so we can see your journey. We will be selecting a winner to receive a luxurious home yoga sanctuary of their own – The PRO Squared, two unBLOKs, and two eQua hand yoga towels.

This Fall, we’re asking the yoga community to Go There. And Go There, you have! We have seen you thrive, and we have seen your verve. Now it’s time to change the pace and embrace the moment.
Two weeks ago we asked you to Go There by showing us how you life a life full of enthusiasm, and how you go beyond your barriers. Here are a few of our favorite photos from our theme, VERVE, including the photo from our winner, @mars_adventure, who will take home our PRO Black Verve, the eQua Towel in Verve, and 2 unBLOKs.

Over the next two weeks, we’d love to see you go where your emotions flow and embrace your greatness. Show us the things that help you be your truest self, and how you embrace the now. In two weeks, we’ll select one winner to receive a PROlite in Embrace, an eQua Towel in Embrace, and a Recycled Wool Blanket.

There are places that specifically set us up to unblock. Freeing our bodies, energies and intentions. That neighborhood yoga studio that helps you clear your mind and make room for breakthroughs. Stellar Yoga in Vancouver, WA is one such studio says Amy Clayburn. Amy nominated Stellar Yoga to win the Manduka unBLOK Party Contest because not only is it her home studio, it’s a place where she can be herself, build her strength, relieve stress, and laugh.
We have visited Stellar Yoga and can now see exactly where Amy was coming from. Stellar Yoga is a progressive and dynamic vinyasa yoga studio whose mission is Reach over Revenue - they aim to enrich as many lives possible with all the benefits a yoga practice has to offer. The goal in each class at Stellar Yoga is to improve your flexibility, strength, balance and endurance while simultaneously allowing you to embark on the journey within - to help you find and tap into where your inner peace dwells.
On September 6th, Ma’i, the studio owner, hosted a packed house for an unBLOK party where her students gathered to celebrate her and the community that they’ve created in short time the studio has been open. Ma’i taught an hour-long class focused on heart opening postures and the students all shared how yoga helps them unBLOK.
One of the prizes that Stellar Yoga won in the contest was a Seva Scholarship to use in whatever way worked best for their studio. They have chosen to use that scholarship to provide a free class for the community on the first Friday of each month. The First Fridays unBLOK Party class will be a 75 minute vinyasa class followed by music, refreshments, fun, and laughter. The class is free as a service to those who are financially in need.
We are so grateful to have gotten to know Ma’i and everyone at Stellar Yoga, and are so excited to watch First Fridays unfold as a community class. If you would like to learn more about Stellar Yoga, or if you live in the Vancouver, WA area and would like to check out the studio, please visit: stellaryogastudio.com.

Getting out of your comfort zone is scary. It requires bravery. However once you take that leap of faith, it can be the most rewarding thing you can do for yourself. We’re asking you to really Go There. Wherever ‘there’ is for you. Opening your heart opens up space for you to thrive. And whether you thrive on your mat, or off, we are here to support you.
Two weeks ago we asked you to join the #LetsGoThere challenge so that we could all see how this community thrives, and to share with us how you 'Go There', by posting a photo on Instagram. Here are a few of our favorite photos, including our winner, @gldmne, who will continue to Thrive with a new + improved eKO Mat, Recycled Foam Block and eQua Towel, all in the season’s new color, Thrive.
By @gldmne, who won last week's #innerGPS contest.
Here are some of our other favorites!
Over the next two weeks, show us how you Go There by revealing to our community how you live a life full of enthusiasm and your contagious spirit. Celebrate what it's like to go beyond your barriers and embrace your vigor by posting a photo on Instagram using #LetsGoThere. In two weeks we’ll select one winner to receive the Manduka PRO – Black Verve, eQua Mat Towel in Verve, and 2 unBLOKs.
It’s an honor to be part of your practice, and a joy to see your pictures. If you have any questions, feel free to ask us in the comments below!

This season we’d like to take you away. Out of your comfort zone and into a daring new place. Out of your head and into your body. Away to where real growth happens and your truest self comes out.
We want you to Go There.
We can’t tell you exactly where ‘There’ is - only you can do that. But Manduka will help, as we challenge you to try more, trust more and feel more. Go THERE.
And show us what it’s like.
Let’s Go There using Fall as inspiration to try something new and express yourself entirely. Then comes the bravest part: sharing a photo. Go There to Instagram tagging #LetsGoThere and @MandukaYoga, or upload to the special tab at Manduka’s Facebook page.
Every two weeks, one yogi whose photo helps us all Go There will receive a specially created Manduka gift set. To help guide your journey (and your photos), we will focus on a series of themes inspired by Manduka’s Fall color ways:
Starting today: THRIVE
Open your heart on or off the mat.
Starting September 23: VERVE
Reveal your real power and strength.
Starting October 7: EMBRACE
Go where your emotions flow.
Starting October 21: INDULGE
Treat yourself to the ultimate restoration.
And know that we’re always here to support.
