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.

Why Manduka?: My Manduka has been with me through my yoga journey as a student and teacher. My mat is my sanctuary, and has seen my up and downs as well as progression. I have a special bond with my mat that can not be replaced.

What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice evolution. I evolve into not only who I feel I am meant to be as an individual, but who I feel I am meant to be as part of the human collective. As I work through my practice daily, I am uniquely reminded of how connected we all are.

Yoga Style: Jivamukti, Vinyasa

Practice with me here: Maryland Athletic Club , M. Power Yoga

Hey there, I’m Camille B…

What can I really say about me, except that I love yoga. All of it, the whole yoga. The breathing (or pranayama), the sitting (or meditation), and the flow of breathe and motion (or what we in the west call yoga or asana in sanskrit), all of it. I love nothing more than to play on my mat, but why limit the play there when the world is big and you can yoga anywhere.

Beyond the mat, I love reading, yerba mate tea, poetry, and I have been known to lounge about and drink mimosa's, but really the mat is just so much fun, why not be there as often as I can?
