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?: This mat is my home. My practice is important to me and Manduka is simply the best mat I can be on.

What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice patience, acceptance and gratitude as I find my way through lifes many surprises and challenges. No matter what comes my way, once I step onto my mat, I am brought back to the raw feeling of my bare feet on my mat. Nothing more is necessary.

Yoga Style: Ayurveda, Therapeutic

Namaste. My name is Michele Fife and I have created this site as a way to connect and share my journey to live in harmony with nature and contribute to a healthier world. I am a Yogini, an Ayurvedic Yoga Therapist and a Peaceful Warrior. After many years of working in the fitness industry I found my true home on the Yoga mat almost 20 years ago. Since that time I have had the opportunity to work with troubled youth, cancer survivors, inmates, and thousands of people from around the world.

I believe that life is a wonderful gift. I believe that all life is equal. I believe that even one little person can make a big difference. I believe that knowledge is power and that is why I want to help inform and educate that there is a better way, a healthier way to be. There is nothing to lose and so much to gain when you open your eyes to the many possibilities around you. Come see and see how great you can feel.
