Who's On The Mat



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!

Why Manduka?: My Black Mat PRO always stays in place and grips even in the most rigorous vinyasa inversion practice. It is the only mat that endures hours of practice without breaking down. It is simply the best yoga mat you can buy.

What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice floating.

Yoga Style: Power, Vinyasa
