Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
I am hard on my mats, but my Black Mat PRO® stands up to my practice. I always say that if Manduka mats weren't so eco-friendly, if the earth came to an end, my Black Mat® would still be going strong.
Santa Monica, CA
Why Manduka?: I always know my practice will have a good foundation when I am on my Manduka Mat. I feel supported when I have to accomplish challenging poses on my mat and when I think about our endurance together throughout the years, it brings a smile to my face.
What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice with a more solid foundation both physically and mentally. My Manduka helps me feel grounded and secure so that whatever pose I am attempting and practicing, I am certain I am doing the best that I can; therefore, feeling content and peace at all times. Thank you My Manduka!
