Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
I still use my first Manduka Mat that I bought in 2001, it will outlive me!
Los Gatos, California
Why Manduka?: My Manduka mat never lets me down every time I practice. It is firm enough to hold me steady;soft enough to allow everything to be felt, and grippy enough to allow me to create magnificent art with the temple which is my body.
What does your Manduka help you #practice?: Manduka helps me practice and teach with confidence, professionalism and an unwavering love and inspiration for my yoga practice.
Yoga Style: Hatha
