Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
My Manduka Mat traveled around the world with me from Fiji to New Zealand, Bali, Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris, Iceland and the East Coast before following me to my hometown of Seattle. It didn't matter where I went, when I rolled out my mat to practice I felt like I was home.
Why Manduka?: My eKO Manduka makes me feel graceful, healthy and connected. I couldn't imagine practicing on any other mat.

"I’ve always had a passion for the healing arts and first began botanical studies in 1995 to become a herbal healer. It wasn’t long before my desire to inspire others toward better health brought me to the transformative modality of yoga. My journey of self-discovery through yoga has not always been an easy one. Trouble with body image and an eating disorder caused me deep challenges but through all of them, I have been able to love and continue to heal myself through yoga. My passion is to empower all yogi/nis to become even healthier and truly embrace their shapes through yoga and meditation.
