From The Heart

After tearing through numerous other yoga mats a year I decided that if I was going to take my practice more seriously, that I had to take my mat more seriously. I upgraded to a Black Mat PRO and have never looked back. I can always come to practice on it and feel like I am being nurtured and protected.

Academy of Recording Arts School

Manduka gave a set of yoga mats to the Academy of Recording Arts Charter School in Hawthorn, California. Hala Khouri, in collaboration with AIM (Assemblies in Motion), a non-profit that brings the arts and spoken work to at risk youth, started a yoga program at the Academy of Recording Arts Charter School. Hala and her coteacher, Leila Sadeghee, have been teaching 4 classes a week to these young people. Most of them come from challenging situations and struggle with addiction, depression or anxiety. Hala says, "We are so grateful for Manduka's mats. Jamal commented today that these are "O.G" mats which we think is a big complement!"
