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?: You haven't experienced yoga fully until you've practiced on a Manduka Mat! It is by far the best mat I have ever used. Thank you Manduka!

What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka mat helps my practice in such a way that I can't do yoga without it. The fiber of the mat is the best I've ever practiced on, and I can ground deep, and fly high! I'm spoiled and I like it.
