Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
My Manduka creates an oasis for me to become all of me. When I step on my Manduka mat it is like I am stepping onto a mirror. My Manduka sees me in ways that no one else does, and provides with me with a safe and comfortable place to be who I am. No judgment, no criticism, just self- reflection. This mat is like no other mat. It is awesome! There is no place I would rather be than on my mat! My Manduka is my crystal ball- it knows where I am going, even before I do.
Why Manduka?: My favorite Manduka product is my Manduka Black mat PRO. I've had it for years, and year after year it continues to stay with me without wearing out. I used to go through a mat every two months, and what a waste!! I have recommended the Manduka Black Mat PRO to many students of mine.
