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!
