Why Manduka?: Manduka is my "tempurpedic" on the floor. It holds true to its form but offers support and stability for my joints and protects my body so I can practice with freedom and love.

What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice.....patience and compassion for myself and others.

Yoga Style: Vinyasa Flow
