Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
I am a full time ashtanga and vinyasa flow yoga teacher and I get a lot of students asking me what yoga mat I recommend and for my advice on yoga products and accessories. Without a doubt, I always steer them to Manduka products. I love their commitment to community and support as well, so for me Manduka is the clear answer.
San Diego, CA
Jo Beth Richards
Why Manduka?: When I step onto my Manduka, I am stepping onto my sacred space. The place where my body and mind are free to become one. With each breathe, asana, and drop of sweat I learn to let my heart soar & my spirit blossom...all while on my Manduka.
What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice EMPOWERMENT!
Yoga Style: Creative Vinyasa
