Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
My Manduka creates an oasis for me to become all of me. When I step on my Manduka mat it is like I am stepping onto a mirror. My Manduka sees me in ways that no one else does, and provides with me with a safe and comfortable place to be who I am. No judgment, no criticism, just self- reflection. This mat is like no other mat. It is awesome! There is no place I would rather be than on my mat! My Manduka is my crystal ball- it knows where I am going, even before I do.

Eric Broder Van Dyke grew up in Waimanalo, where he lived an active outdoor lifestyle. Doing handstands with the help of the shallow beach ocean was one of his favorite things to do. In 2001, Eric discovered yoga while at college in Las Vegas. He started attending classes regularly at It’s Yoga, Las Vegas. After many years of practicing the rocket and primary series, the teaching staff suggested to Eric that it was time for him to study with the ‘Yoga Man’ Larry Schultz. Eric travelled to San Francisco to attend an It’s Yoga, San Francisco teacher training. At the end of the program, Larry Schultz suggested to Eric that he move to San Francisco and continue training with him. After moving Eric continued to study and learn from It’s Yoga system, began teaching yoga in 2007 around the city of San Francisco at It’s Yoga, Astayoga, and Allied Fitness Professional Services. Now Eric has returned to Oahu and is honored to be sharing what he has learned with others at Power Yoga Hawaii.
Eric leads a practice of the being that awakens parts, senses, and beings in one’s existence that aid in the inhabiting of the physical form. His practice brings into focus the state of being and allows the practitioner to grow into the true potential of their being. Yoga sharpens the tools of existence, the mind, body, and spirit to allow the practitioner to better serve their fellow cosmic energy forces. Yoga is the path to experiencing the true wonders of the privileges of being.
