From The Heart

I've gone through so many mats, little bits of them coming off on me, the stick going out of them - until I found Manduka. I can roll my Manduka PROlite mat out anywhere and practice. It works so well, I forget all about it and am just in the poses.

Description/Bio

Stela stumbled upon yoga by accident while browsing through a friend’s DVD stand. She found one of Rodney Yee’s yoga DVDs. She tried and loved it. Soon afterward, Stela started taking classes at a small yoga studio nearby. That was four years ago and since then her yoga vocabulary has expanded infinitely. A couple of months ago she finished training as a yoga instructor. Yoga is now an integral part of her life, on the mat as well as off the mat. It is a practice that has enriched her life and it has improved the quality of her life.
