From The Heart

A friend gave me the Manduka Black Mat Pro about 8 years ago, and it has been my favorite mat ever since. My Manduka supports my practice from the ground-up, which gives me the freedom to soar to new heights each time I place my feet at the top of my mat. My Manduka mat holds the energy of my devotion, love, commitment, and every daily discovery from my practice. There is no other mat out there that offers the same kind of support. I love my Manduka!

Description/Bio

Stela stumbled upon yoga by accident while browsing through a friend’s DVD stand. She found one of Rodney Yee’s yoga DVDs. She tried and loved it. Soon afterward, Stela started taking classes at a small yoga studio nearby. That was four years ago and since then her yoga vocabulary has expanded infinitely. A couple of months ago she finished training as a yoga instructor. Yoga is now an integral part of her life, on the mat as well as off the mat. It is a practice that has enriched her life and it has improved the quality of her life.
