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?: The Manduka PROlite™ is the PERFECT mat for any kind of vinyasa based practice. It combines the ideal proportion of stick and slide, and makes transitions smooth and fluid. I love it and recommend it to all my students.

What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice the perfect transition from Chaturanga to Up Dog; it has exactly the right proportion of traction for the hands and slide for the toes!

Yoga Style: Ashtanga
