Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
My mat is my blank canvas, my life raft, my recess, my muse.

Why Manduka?: I love the eKO- lite™ Mat! It’s lightweight, durable, non toxic and my favorite place to hangout for hours!
What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice YOGA and MEDITATION. Just like showering, and brushing my teeth, I go to my Manduka mat every day to refresh and renew. It is here that I adjust my nervous system, breathe space into my body and align my mind to the task of presence. Many of my most nourishing times are spent quietly breathing and moving on my mat!
