Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
The first time I ever stepped onto a Manduka mat I truly felt supported in my practice. Like someone was there with me guiding me through each and every pose. This is true for both their products and the company. I never get off of the phone with the company wondering if my needs were met. I feel supported as a wholesale buyer, a customer, and as a person. Thank you Manduka!
Los Angeles, CA
Why Manduka?: Manduka mats are the gift of choice for my host yogins in India when I travel there to teach.
What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice...... every morning facing the sun. The light of the rising sun and the groundedness of the mat below me are the perfect way to begin my day!
