Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

Manduka's been a part of my practice since day one. Like me, the older and more beat up my mat gets, the stronger it becomes.

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
