Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

I find myself congratulating practitioners on their new Manduka mats like they've just birthed a baby. I just want to hold it and look at it for awhile. Meanwhile, my grandpa Manduka Pro doesn't get the looks he used to, but he is ever faithful and ready to roll out to any occasion.

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.

What does your Manduka help you #practice?:

Yoga Style: Vinyasa
