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 favorite Manduka product is my Manduka Black mat PRO. I've had it for years, and year after year it continues to stay with me without wearing out. I used to go through a mat every two months, and what a waste!! I have recommended the Manduka Black Mat PRO to many students of mine.

What does your Manduka help you #practice?:

Yoga Style: Vinyasa
