From The Heart

My Manduka products have stood the march of time, seeing me through countless practices, classes and workshops, like good friends helping me each step at a time. That the company is as committed to providing the community with the highest quality materials as it is to the environment makes them one I am happy to support.

The Caring for Carcinoid Foundation

Manduka donated mats to the The Caring for Carcinoid Foundation. Carcinoid is a deadly neuroendocrine cancer, currently with no cure. The Caring for Carcinoid Foundation (CFCF) is the only 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to discovering a cure for carcinoid cancer. The vision of CFCF is to eliminate the suffering of patients, families and caregivers affected by carcinoid and related neuroendocrine tumors. At the inaugural Awareness Weekend in March of 2009, CFCF wanted to provide patients with a relaxing yoga session, from which they could take away valuable tools to continue practicing at home. Manduka provided each CFCF patient with their own high-performance yoga mat, and Manduka Ambassador Kishan Shah led a morning Vinyasa Yoga session, providing patients with the necessary foundation to begin a therapeutic home practice.

Sexual Assault Awareness Month

In recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April, Manduka gave the PROlite in the color 'Purple' to The Rape Foundation.

The Rape Foundation provides rape treatment, prevention, and education. It was created to support programs that provide expert and compassionate care for victims, and to work to change the conditions, practices, and attitudes that keep victims silent. In April, The Rape Foundation launched what will become a global campaign in recognition of "Sexual Assault Awareness Month". In support of these efforts, Manduka contributed a portion of each purchase of the PROlite Yoga Mat in the color ‘Purple’ to The Rape Foundation.
