Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
My Manduka mat never lets me down every time I practice. It is firm enough to hold me steady;soft enough to allow everything to be felt, and grippy enough to allow me to create magnificent art with the temple which is my body.
Los Gatos, California
Why Manduka?: Manduka is the only mat I will ever need. I've been rockin' the same beauty for 6 years now. She looks brand new!
What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice healthy alignment! When I want to stack my bones, I lay down my Manduka.
