From The Heart

Living out of my luggage in my 3rd year as a spiritual nomad on Tour, I am super selective with minimizing what I carry to the bare essentials. My green eKO SuperLite Travel Mat is not just carry-on, it's "carry everywhere!"

PEACE

Founded in 2005, PEACE (www.peacemexico.org) is a non-profit organization, located in the Punta de Mita region of Mexico, north of Puerto Vallarta. PEACE acts as an umbrella organization for four main programs, Casa Comunidad (Community House), Ayuda a los Animales (Help The Animals), United Hands for Women (Manos Unidas por la Mujer) and Orgullo en la Comunidad (Community Pride).

PEACE works hand in hand with communities to develop and implement appropriate community programs to enhance the quality of life for all. English classes, after-school programs, recycling initiatives, and a free mobile spay/neuter clinic are among the various projects.

Casa Comunidad Director, Nikhol Esterás Roberts, teaches free yoga classes to kindergartners and their mothers once weekly at the kindergarten in Punta de Mita. Manduka donated 10 yoga mats to the class!
