Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

After tearing through numerous other yoga mats a year I decided that if I was going to take my practice more seriously, that I had to take my mat more seriously. I upgraded to a Black Mat PRO and have never looked back. I can always come to practice on it and feel like I am being nurtured and protected.

Are Yoga Poses Ancient History?

LA Yoga Magazine and Manduka Ambassador Jill Miller invite you to an empowering and educational evening with Yogic Scholar Mark Singleton.
It's often said that yoga is a 5000 year old tradition from India. But what about the practices we do today? Is there really a direct link to the ancient past, or is the story more complicated? Today yoga is virtually synonymous in the West with the practice of āsana. What can we learn from the modern
history of āsana? And what does it mean for our practice today? Come along and find out what the debate is all about.

When: March 18, 2011; 7:45pm-10:30pm
