Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
My Manduka mat is where i practice being who i want to be in my life – it's my playground to try on fearlessness, patience, play, steadfastness, compassion and faith.

Why Manduka?: The Manduka PROlite™ is the PERFECT mat for any kind of vinyasa based practice. It combines the ideal proportion of stick and slide, and makes transitions smooth and fluid. I love it and recommend it to all my students.
What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice the perfect transition from Chaturanga to Up Dog; it has exactly the right proportion of traction for the hands and slide for the toes!
Yoga Style: Ashtanga
