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?: Manduka provides me a safe and stable foundation. I feel supported, and am able to maintain focus. Simply put, Manduka provides me the luxury of not having to think about my yoga mat.
What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice exploration, connection, awareness and possibility.
Yoga Style: Hatha, Kundalini, Vinyasa
Joe Kara started his journey to Yoga in 2003, driven by an instinctive feeling that it was something special that he needed to try – and he has never looked back. It was the natural choice to further deepen his practice and begin teaching Yoga. Joe has spent the last several years studying and cultivating the art of teaching this practice. He received his 500-hour certification from YogaWorks, his 200-hour Kundalini Yoga certification from Yoga West, and his Yoga Therapy certification from Loyola Marymount University. Joe strives to help his students unearth their greater potential via a stimulating practice environment, awareness of the breath, attention to alignment, and a deep internal focus. He's continually honored to be able to share this practice with others.
