Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
My Manduka Mat traveled around the world with me from Fiji to New Zealand, Bali, Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris, Iceland and the East Coast before following me to my hometown of Seattle. It didn't matter where I went, when I rolled out my mat to practice I felt like I was home.
North Canton, OH

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.
