Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

A friend gave me the Manduka Black Mat Pro about 8 years ago, and it has been my favorite mat ever since. My Manduka supports my practice from the ground-up, which gives me the freedom to soar to new heights each time I place my feet at the top of my mat. My Manduka mat holds the energy of my devotion, love, commitment, and every daily discovery from my practice. There is no other mat out there that offers the same kind of support. I love my Manduka!

I have loved my Manduka mats for 9+ years now! It helps protect my
bones in any posture! I have sold them & promoted them in my Yoga studio since the day I got my first one! I currently own 3 Mandukas, a standard, a long one & a 3 piece custom mat. I cut up regular mat into 3 smaller rectangles (I used the excess for shelf lining under my
tools) I just lay them down, front, middle & back & can do most
poses like that! works great & rolls up w/ a small strap, great for traveling lighter w/o sacrificing comfort!
