Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

My Manduka Mat traveled around the world with me from Fiji to New Zealand, Bali, Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris, Iceland and the East Coast before following me to my hometown of Seattle. It didn't matter where I went, when I rolled out my mat to practice I felt like I was home.

Why Manduka?: My first time experience with Manduka Yoga Mat, was because Yoga Aum is Manduka’s exclusive distributor in Thailand. After I used Manduka yoga mat for a few months, I feel a big different with another yoga mats I ever used before. Manduka yoga mats make my yoga practicing better, so now I always stand by the quality yoga mat. Thank you very much for Yoga Aum and Manduka, for changing my yogic life for the better.
