Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
I love Manduka's Mats! I use both the black mats that I keep at home for my Husband and I and the purple travel Mats that I keep in the car to go travel to the studios with. I have let my students borrow my purple mat sometimes when i see them struggling, slipping and sliding with their own. They buy one immediately after that. Thank you Manduka!!

Stella Valente grew up in Queens, NY, a challenging place for finding peace by any standards. Through modern dance she found yoga but it wasn’t until an incident with “authority” that she found the “true” meaning of yoga. It changed her life forever and she speaks on the subject, “Yoga So You Wanna?”
She has studied with Master Teachers: Annie Carpenter, Lisa Walford and Steven Freedman and has created an enlivening blend of vinyasa, pranayama, zen philosophy and humor.
She encourages students to joyfully become more conscious from moment to moment, to explore their own true nature and divine inner power. She has classes in Los Angeles www.stellayoga.com.
