Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

A friend gave me the Manduka Black Mat Pro about 8 years ago, and it has been my favorite mat ever since. My Manduka supports my practice from the ground-up, which gives me the freedom to soar to new heights each time I place my feet at the top of my mat. My Manduka mat holds the energy of my devotion, love, commitment, and every daily discovery from my practice. There is no other mat out there that offers the same kind of support. I love my Manduka!

Why Manduka?: Manduka is a godsend. When I am on The Black Mat® PRO I feel completely supported. It has the perfect amount of padding--it's the first and only mat I've ever discovered where I don't need extra cushion for my knees and hips in certain postures. The eKO™ Mat is my favorite to travel with and I love that I am doing something good for the environment when I use it and recommend it to all my students and clients. I love Manduka!

What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice my two favorite disciplines--yoga and Pilates in comfort and style."

Yoga Style: Ashtanga, Power, Vinyasa
