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 Manduka mat is my magic carpet. I step onto it and from there I am inspired to lead meaningful and liberated practices for all of the Yogic Artists that step into my yoga shala, to Mom's-to-be to children, to the young, old, flexible and those who have never taken a yoga class before. They feel the spirit and are in turn inspired from a confident teacher on her magic carpet. My Manduka!

What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice peace, love and UNDERSTANDING!

Yoga Style: Power, Vinyasa

Practice with me here: Yoga Shala
