Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
My Manduka isn’t just a mat, it is my best friend. She is supportive, inspiring, compassionate, and most importantly of all, she goes everywhere with me!
Why Manduka?: 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.
What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice perfect poise (for the most part).
Yoga Style: Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Yin
Practice with me here: Body Balance Yoga
