Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
After tearing through numerous other yoga mats a year I decided that if I was going to take my practice more seriously, that I had to take my mat more seriously. I upgraded to a Black Mat PRO and have never looked back. I can always come to practice on it and feel like I am being nurtured and protected.
Why Manduka?: My Manduka helps me practice softness. By connecting with what I am doing & knowing that it is not about standing on my head (which is easy for me), but learning to stand on my own feet.
What does your Manduka help you #practice?: The reflection on your Manduka yoga mat, practicing, is so much more than the reflection in your mirror in the morning!!!
Yoga Style: Restorative, Vinyasa
An was an aerobic, spinning & pump teacher for 15 years. Because of many years of overtraining, she was always in pain and no doctor could really help her. 10 years ago An decided to follow a yoga-workshop, in the hope that yoga could heel her body.
She learned to listen to her body and to open her shoulders and hips. Yoga became her second love so much, that she did not want to teach all those aerobic classes anymore.
She decided to study yoga and became an inspiring teacher, known for restorative and spicy vinyasa yoga.
Many years later An is working in 4 clubs now and has created a mini-yoga-community in the fitness-clubs.
It is so wonderful to bring more peace, more softness & more harmony into the clubs!
During her classes you will see big muscled guys, young thin girls, older & younger yogi’s, stressed businessmen, …
Many of them will never go to a yoga studio.
