  • Yoga for Good Luck | 5 Practices

    In honor of Friday the 13th, let’s have a look at luck.

    Luck is a fun concept: the idea that once in a while, life gives you a windfall of fortune for no reason other than chance. Sometimes things do happen for no apparent reason – like finding a $20 bill on the street, or getting called for jury duty 3 years in a row. But most of the time, almost all of the time, what really makes luck is you. Continue reading

  • Bring Yoga To Kids Who Need It Most

    Every student should experience confidence, focus and feel balanced in the classroom, but not all students come from situations that give them that luxury. So we have to support the people who support our most at-risk kids. Bent On Learning is a nonprofit organization that has taught yoga to over 18,000 students over the past 15 years, bringing yoga and all of its benefits into underserved New York City public schools to support a healthier, more compassionate learning environment – and we made a mat to help make what they do possible.

    We’ve collaborated with visual artist Ryan McGinness to bring a one-of-a-kind printed PRO mat that will not only inspire your practice, but gives back to a young community that needs it most. Every time one of these special PRO mats are purchased, we will gift two yoga classes for children in Bent On Learning, helping inner city kids find inner peace.

    Your story matters. Not just because it’s yours, but because all of us can relate, learn, be inspired and be empowered by your experience. So we’re collecting and sharing stories about your yoga practice: how did you find your practice and what transformed in your life when you did? 

    We’ve been reading your stories from all over Instagram and through email. They’re amazing. We are all #MadeForYoga, and if you’d like to join us, this is the last week that sharing your story could win you a suite of Manduka gear and apparel that’s as Made For Yoga as you are (more info at the bottom of this page).
