Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
After tearing through numerous other yoga mats a year I decided that if I was going to take my practice more seriously, that I had to take my mat more seriously. I upgraded to a Black Mat PRO and have never looked back. I can always come to practice on it and feel like I am being nurtured and protected.
Why Manduka?: My Manduka mats are the perfect example of sukha and sthira, balancing strength with ease
What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice effortlessly.
Yoga Style: Tantra
