From The Heart

I love Manduka's Mats! I use both the black mats that I keep at home for my Husband and I and the purple travel Mats that I keep in the car to go travel to the studios with. I have let my students borrow my purple mat sometimes when i see them struggling, slipping and sliding with their own. They buy one immediately after that. Thank you Manduka!!

Join Les Leventhal at Bliss Yoga in Denver, CO

Manduka Ambassador Les Leventhal will be in the Mile High City this weekend to teach a trio of fantastic workshops at Bliss Yoga! From hip openers to backbends to arm balances and inversions, you are sure to find the workshop that works for you:

Hips & Twists: Liberate Your Hips, Free Your Spine
Stretch, relax, and strengthen your leg muscles before moving on to spine twists so you can ultimately release tension in your lower back!

Art of Backbends
Les will explore the elusive backbend by taking you through the physical, psychological, and spiritual aspects of the posture. Emphasize on your heart center while you open up the entire front body.

Arm Balancing & Inversions
Time to defy gravity (safely) as you strengthen your core and build upper body strength! Move through space upside down by creating that awareness you need to feel confident in inversions.

Want more info? Of course you do! Check out Bliss Yoga's Workshops & Events page.
