Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
On Manduka I feel like I have a chance to try again. Each time I plant my feet firmly on my mat, I am reminding myself that I am still here. I am reminded that I am alive.
New York, NY
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
