Manduka’s Holiday Mindset: Putting Your Practice Into Practice

 

 

How did this all happen so fast? One minute it’s summer and the next, we find ourselves fully entrenched in the holiday season! Not that we’re complaining…this time of year is always one of our favorites, bringing with it family, festivities and lots of opportunities to put the tools we learn on the yoga mat into practice in the real world.

This year, we’re proud to feature some of our favorite hometown teachers (that’s sunny Los Angeles, by the way), who share with us how they give back in their own communities, model some of their favorite Manduka picks, provide their personal flow playlists and some will even be teaching live-streamed yoga classes throughout the next few months.

Meet our Holiday Gift Guide Teachers below and get inspired to put your own practice into, well, practice. Together, we can spread positive vibes big and small to everyone we meet, hug, toast and gift this season.

Practice On,

Manduka

“As a single mother, I know that help from family, friends and even strangers is always appreciated. That’s why each holiday season, I use my community at the studio to arrange clothing drives for Santa Monica’s Upward Bound House to help single mothers and families get back on their feet.”

“I work at The Giving Keys in Downtown LA, where we employ people transitioning out of homelessness to make inspirational products and key jewelry stamped with words like DREAM, CREATE or INSPIRE. Working with organizations like Chrysalis, Union Rescue Mission and First Place For Youth makes me proud to pay it forward today, tomorrow and every day.”
