Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

I have owned many types of yoga mats. I was never completely satisfied with any of them because they were either too short, too thin or not grippy enough. A few years ago I was gifted a 85" Manduka PRO mat by my wife. Honestly, I can't think of a better gift! The Manduka PRO fills all my needs and is the best mat I've ever had the pleasure of calling my own.

Healing & Evolution in Paradise

The annual yoga, meditation and healing retreat for self-transformation and evolution, a charity project that was born in Bali last year, was held recently upon the secluded and beautiful island, Pulau Macan, which is nestled within a gorgeous archipelago known as the Thousand Islands off the north coast of Java.

Joseph Lee (, who adopts yoga as a way of life, together with 3 other inspiring teachers –Astrea Aurora, Makiko Domen, and Jean Manuel, guided the retreat participants through a transformational week of vinyasa yoga, yin yoga, pranayama, divine sacred sound meditations, guided as well as silent meditation, group cranio-sacral therapy, and educational workshops like Revealing the Mayan Calendar and The Power of Manifestation. This blessed opportunity was the result of a shared intention to create a sacred space for self-healing and transformation for all participants. The benefits from this retreat reach beyond the evolution of each participant, and touch the lives of many children in the global community. This annual charity yoga project grew from Joseph’s vision to share yoga as an ‘inward’ mindfulness meditation practice on-and-off the yoga mat to expedite our very path towards self-transformation and realization, and at the same time to groom the next generation of children. This year, the funds raised will sponsor 19 children around the world at Children International ( and Bali/Indonesia for a year to provide for their:

• Health+Dental care and medicine
• Malnutrition screenings and nutritional support
• Sturdy clothing and shoes
• School supplies and improved access to education
• Encouragement and hope

Joseph and friends inspire possibilities in others. Make a stand in what you believe in, and begin/continue to shine your love and light onto others.
