Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

A friend gave me the Manduka Black Mat Pro about 8 years ago, and it has been my favorite mat ever since. My Manduka supports my practice from the ground-up, which gives me the freedom to soar to new heights each time I place my feet at the top of my mat. My Manduka mat holds the energy of my devotion, love, commitment, and every daily discovery from my practice. There is no other mat out there that offers the same kind of support. I love my Manduka!

Why Manduka?: My Manduka mat is the first mat I ever practiced on and has been with me ever since. I know everyday when I step onto my mat that it is the one thing that remains the same. No matter how I'm feeling or how challenging a pose is my mat is there. Both as a student and a teacher my PRO Mat is home.

Jacinthe Mitchell has been practicing yoga for five years and has completed the challenging Third Series and Fourth Series in Ashtanga and is now learning the Fifth Series. Without any background in dance or gymnastics, Jacinthe tried her first Yoga class (Ashtanga Prep at Yoga Works) and was hooked and became a dedicated Ashtanga practitioner ever since.

She credits her accelerated training to her principal teacher Itay Dollinger in combination with her trainings with Yoga Works, Tim Miller and True Flow Yoga. “I love the elegance and grace of the Ashtanga tradition, my gratitude to Sri K. Pattahbi Jois is insurmountable. I believe that ANYONE can practice Ashtanga yoga, given love, and a sense of humor. I have seen and experienced this practice as a way to grow, transform, transcend and become yourself.”

Jacinthe’s dedication to her personal yoga practice and the Ashtanga lineage shine through in her teaching. Her energy is contagious and inspiring! Jacinthe specializes in providing all her students with a lot of personal attention and helping them to advance and grow in their yoga journey.
