Who's On The Mat



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!

Why Manduka?: There’s no reason to buy any other mat. None. I’ve watched my students carry their Manduka mats all over the world on retreats with me. They’d rather make room in their suitcase for their beloved Black mat than they would for their clothes. It’s that important.

What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me #practice patience, presence and personal progress.

Yoga Style: Vinyasa
