Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
My Manduka mat works with me, giving me just enough support without distancing me from the floor. My practice feels simultaneously grounded and light. I can move freely and focus on the moment as it unfolds.

Michelle Jacobi, ERYT owns the Centre de Yoga du Marais in Paris. A former dancer, she has been practicing Hatha since 1994 when she started in New York, studying at IYI. She travels extensively, teaching workshops in Europe, the United States and India and continues to study with the masters who inspire her. Her biggest inspiration comes from her students. "When I watch their practice open like a flower and see them overcome their difficulties it is quite moving and humbling. I get to watch body, breath, mind and spirit in action." Yoga for her is an umbrella that covers all aspects of her life. "It's all yoga!" And what supports her feet and practice from below is the Manduka purple lite mat.
