Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
A friend gave me the Manduka Black Mat Pro about 8 years ago, and it has been my favorite mat ever since. My Manduka supports my practice from the ground-up, which gives me the freedom to soar to new heights each time I place my feet at the top of my mat. My Manduka mat holds the energy of my devotion, love, commitment, and every daily discovery from my practice. There is no other mat out there that offers the same kind of support. I love my Manduka!
Why Manduka?: On Manduka I feel like I have a chance to try again. Each time I plant my feet firmly on my mat, I am reminding myself that I am still here. I am reminded that I am alive.”
What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice how to embody love.
