Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
I am hard on my mats, but my Black Mat PRO® stands up to my practice. I always say that if Manduka mats weren't so eco-friendly, if the earth came to an end, my Black Mat® would still be going strong.
Santa Monica, CA
Why Manduka?: Being on my MANDUKA mat allows me to truly connect with my yoga practice, as I have no physical distractions/limitations on it. I have confidence that the mat will support me in anything I try.
