Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
My Manduka mat never lets me down every time I practice. It is firm enough to hold me steady;soft enough to allow everything to be felt, and grippy enough to allow me to create magnificent art with the temple which is my body.

Why Manduka?: It's solid and it grips; the traction of the Manduka mat allows you to transform your practice by connecting with the earth, and that is a vital element to a deep asana practice.
