Why Manduka?: I have been using the purple PROlite™ travel mat since it first came on the scene and I love it! I even like it for practice when I am not traveling. It’s light and springy and lasts a long time. There is no reason to have any other yoga mat than a Manduka.

What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me to practice self part of my daily practice.

Yoga Style: Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Yoga

Practice with me here: Ashtanga Yoga Bali
