From The Heart

A friend gave me the Manduka Black Mat Pro about 8 years ago, and it has been my favorite mat ever since. My Manduka supports my practice from the ground-up, which gives me the freedom to soar to new heights each time I place my feet at the top of my mat. My Manduka mat holds the energy of my devotion, love, commitment, and every daily discovery from my practice. There is no other mat out there that offers the same kind of support. I love my Manduka!

Description/Bio

Stella Valente grew up in Queens, NY, a challenging place for finding peace by any standards. Through modern dance she found yoga but it wasn’t until an incident with “authority” that she found the “true” meaning of yoga. It changed her life forever and she speaks on the subject, “Yoga So You Wanna?”

She has studied with Master Teachers: Annie Carpenter, Lisa Walford and Steven Freedman and has created an enlivening blend of vinyasa, pranayama, zen philosophy and humor.

She encourages students to joyfully become more conscious from moment to moment, to explore their own true nature and divine inner power. She has classes in Los Angeles www.stellayoga.com.
