Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

I have owned many types of yoga mats. I was never completely satisfied with any of them because they were either too short, too thin or not grippy enough. A few years ago I was gifted a 85" Manduka PRO mat by my wife. Honestly, I can't think of a better gift! The Manduka PRO fills all my needs and is the best mat I've ever had the pleasure of calling my own.
