This is Morgan.
He is a medical assistant, nursing student and dedicated bicyclist. Morgan rides his bike 365 days a year --- through downtown Chicago. Morgan is willing to take chances, which is exactly how he found his yoga practice 11 years ago. It started as a way to help him relax and stretch after running 20+ miles per week, it became a source of clarity.
Morgan has a few battle scars. Exactly one year after fracturing his left clavicle, he had an epiphany in Kapotasana: life will hand you breaks, but you choose whether it breaks your spirit, or whether it lets you blossom through the cracks.
Morgan recently raised $1,000 for a friend in India that has Tuberculosis and needed an oxygen machine. Knowing that his friend will be able to breathe for the rest of the year, allows him to breathe easier, too.
He amazes us.
Meeting Morgan was a lightbulb moment: we need to meet you too. This is your community, and this is the YOU year. Manduka is on a mission to get to know everyone who makes this yoga community so vibrant, and so real. Because we all have something to learn from you — about how we see ourselves, or approach our practice, or make yoga mats.
