Why Manduka?: My Manduka mat is by far one of my most favorite possessions. I adore practicing on this mat. The past years that I have spent practicing on crappy mats has made me appreciate my Manduka and how much it enhances my practice.

What does your Manduka help you #practice?:

Yoga Style: Vinyasa

Practice with me here: Om Time
