Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

My Manduka has over 2000 hours of practice on it. It is the magic carpet that has been my foundation for the last 6 years. I tell people, they can keep buying $20 mats, or they can buy one Manduka. It is the only mat we sell at my studio.

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!
