From The Heart

My Manduka creates an oasis for me to become all of me. When I step on my Manduka mat it is like I am stepping onto a mirror. My Manduka sees me in ways that no one else does, and provides with me with a safe and comfortable place to be who I am. No judgment, no criticism, just self- reflection. This mat is like no other mat. It is awesome! There is no place I would rather be than on my mat! My Manduka is my crystal ball- it knows where I am going, even before I do.

The Wellness Initiative

The mission of The Wellness Initiative is to improve the physical health, social and emotional development, and academic performance of low-income youth through yoga-based wellness programs in Colorado.

Manduka was happy to donate auction items for this program’s fundraising efforts. What’s more important, is that overall, with the help of all sponsors, The Wellness Initiative was able to raise $32,000. These funds will directly support The Wellness Initiative’s programs in low-income schools in Colorado and will give the program the opportunity to provide valuable, life-long tools to students who might otherwise not have access to yoga’s powerful benefits. Many children within the program are benefitting greatly from learning yoga; and many now consider it a tool to calming down, feeling happy, concentrating, and being healthy.
