From The Heart

I am hard on my mats, but my Black Mat PRO® stands up to my practice. I always say that if Manduka mats weren't so eco-friendly, if the earth came to an end, my Black Mat® would still be going strong.

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.
