Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

Strong enough to hold my space, supportive and trustworthy. You never complains and do your job with excellence. You allow me to express myself fully. When my life gets crazy, you create the space for me to find peace within. When I am in a stressful situation, you create the space for me to release the tension. When I need to rejuvenate, you create the comfortable supportive space for me to fully rest and relax. Thank you Manduka, you are my best friend and best partner ever!

I love rolling out Manduka mats forprivate clients, corporate groups and hotel guests, they last forever and look brand new (eventhough I have had them for 6 years plus). They are uber impressive, great quality and envrionmentally friendly. I love my Manduka.

Without your health, you have nothing. Alana learned that lesson first hand when she suffered a bad concussion a few years ago. The Celebrity TV producer and Yoga Teacher was closing the blinds in her downtown condo when she was suddenly hit in the face with a window covering. It crashed down on her, broke her nose, left her unable to work in network TV for nearly a year. She suffered from migraines, exhaustion, weight gain and anxiety. Her life as a stress hungry, type "A" journalist would never be the same again.

After 15 years as a TV producer, Alana decided to hang up her microphone and lay out the mat to pursue her other passion – Yoga.
With the goal of bringing health into hotels and the corporate world, she launched her own mobile company Hotel Yoga and Fitness Inc. It’s now teamed up with: The Shangri-La, The Sheraton, Vintage Hotels, Ontario College of Teachers etc. She also produced “Yoga for Men" with a World Series Winner and a fitness icon. This is only the beginning!
