Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

My Manduka helps me practice with support and stability. I know my mat is never going to let me down. All I have to do is show up and and step on because my Manduka will hug me tight.

RISE - Yoga for Youth

RISE is a non-profit in the San Francisco Bay Area that empowers adolescents to be agents of positive change in the world. Through yoga, wellness education, and community building, students develop inner resources to respond to life’s challenges in constructive ways. Their innovative curriculum has shown to increase attendance and retention rates, improve academic achievement, and help students manage stress. The curriculum incorporates physical postures, breath work, and activities that foster connection to oneself and to others. Stress management techniques, mindfulness exercises, and community building activities are an integral part of each class, so students can lead healthier, happier, resilient lives. RISE currently offers programming in eight school sites that serve under-resourced youth in San Francisco and in the South Bay.

Manduka recently donated mats for one of RISE's school sites in the South Bay, where yoga is offered as part of the PE Curriculum. Students had been practicing on the gym floor, and they are thrilled to now have real yoga mats to practice on!
