Spring Giveaway: Joy Is #Whatmatters

At Manduka, 2014 is our promise to Live What MATters, from yoga to joy to design to community. This Spring, we’re celebrating #WhatMatters with an Instagram giveaway - come join us!

Joy is a wonderful place to begin. Shouldn’t all things come from a place of joy?

There is joy in making tea, riding to work or rolling out your yoga mat, if you choose it. Joy is a giddy burst of bliss from deep within your heart – you can’t confine it because it’s who you are. That’s why joy matters.

Joy is already in you, and you can reveal it through acceptance, bring it out through gratitude and sustain it on hope. The more you celebrate the joy, the more joy there is to celebrate.

So for the next 10 days, we ask you to see the joy and share it with the world. Let’s Live #WhatMatters, starting with a giveaway of our Spring Collection’s joyful pieces: the eKO Lite mat, yogitoes mat towel and GO Play carry-all sling. Enter to win this happy trio by sharing your joy, or what inspires your joy, on Instagram using tag #WhatMatters and @MandukaYoga.

We’ll collect our favorite photos to share and select a winner on March 17th. Now get out there, see the joy, be the joy and let silliness lead the way. Joy is #WhatMatters.

Namaste,
Manduka

Red Cross Typhoon Haiyan Appeal


At the beginning of this year, Manduka was able to support the Red Cross disaster relief for victims of the Typhoon Haiyan.

With sustained winds reported at more than 145 miles per hour, Haiyan was the second category 5 typhoon to strike the Philippines in 2013. This deadly storm impacted an estimated 16 million people, according to the Philippine government, and, at the height of the storm, more than 4 million people were displaced from their homes.

In the aftermath, thousands of volunteers braved difficult conditions and damaged infrastructure to provide lifesaving assistance, shelter and reassurance to people impacted by the storm. With the support of the global Red Cross network, the Philippine Red Cross has provided food to more than 1.1 million survivors.

What Is Your 2014 “Matifesto”?

Hello to 2014 and 365 wide open, brand new possibilities – a fresh start we can make into whatever we want. We’re setting a New Year’s intention to help us put old lessons into new action, and there is no better place to let an intention come to life than on your yoga mat.

So today we ask you to make a matifesto for 2014 – the declaration you can take to your mat and let guide you through the year. What do you want to manifest in your life? To trust more? Find courage? Be a present parent? We want to support you. So declare it right now. Write it down in permanent ink. Then say it out loud every day. Because this is the year to take your mission into your practice and off the mat. It’s time for all of us to Live what MATters.

All this month, we’re collecting your matifestos here, or on Twitter or Instagram with tag #matifesto. Tell us in a few words or in a photo, and your Manduka is right here to support you.

50 yogis who share their matifesto will receive a hand towel from the new yogitoes We Are One collection that’s launching next week! With your permission, we might also publish your story at Manduka.com, on Facebook or through our media partners.

So get those matifestos flowing, you’ve got yourself (and potentially millions of people) to inspire. We’re here if you have any questions.

Happy New Year,
Manduka
