Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
Manduka is THE ONLY mat I am on. Their commitment to community, sustainability and products that stand up to the energy that challenges props and mats in the effulgence of a practice inspires me. PLUS... The colors make me smile...

Why Manduka?: It is hard to imagine how far this company has come, since its humble beginnings in the garage of my home in San Luis Obispo. I am so grateful for all of the Manduka family who have supported this vision to get it to where it is today, creating the highest performance yoga products known worldwide.
What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice sustainability.
