Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
I am a full time ashtanga and vinyasa flow yoga teacher and I get a lot of students asking me what yoga mat I recommend and for my advice on yoga products and accessories. Without a doubt, I always steer them to Manduka products. I love their commitment to community and support as well, so for me Manduka is the clear answer.
