From The Heart

Strong enough to hold my space, supportive and trustworthy. You never complains and do your job with excellence. You allow me to express myself fully. When my life gets crazy, you create the space for me to find peace within. When I am in a stressful situation, you create the space for me to release the tension. When I need to rejuvenate, you create the comfortable supportive space for me to fully rest and relax. Thank you Manduka, you are my best friend and best partner ever!

Boys & Girls Club of Santa Monica

In January of 2013, Boys & Girls Club of Santa Monica started their first ever yoga program at 3 of their Santa Monica sites. The youth there have been learning basic yoga asanas, pranayama, and each class has been focused around a centering thought, such as gratitude.

Throughout the course, teachers are conducting tests to determine stress levels and self-esteem. So far the kids are loving the weekly yoga classes - the peace and balance they are feeling is evident in the photos below. Manduka was happy to supply yoga mats for classes.
