Join The Unblok Party!

This is a celebration of space: physical, mental and spiritual.

Space is where the breakthroughs happen, where we give ourselves the freedom and permission to explore. What will we have room for when we choose to make space?

There are places that specifically set us up to unblock. Freeing our bodies, energies and intentions. We’re talking about neighborhood yoga studios - the spaces, and the teachers, who know that our next epiphany might be one Triangle Pose away.

So that Triangle Pose ought to be magical. Manduka developed a new kind of yoga prop, made from recycled materials, and built the way your body is built – way outside the box. We call it unBLOK, and we hope that’s exactly what it helps you do.

To celebrate unBLOK, and the yoga studios that do just that, we’re turning to you. Tell us through Facebook about your favorite studio and why it’s a special place to practice. What is it about this space that brings you clarity during class and in the 22½ hours that follow?

We’ll thank you for sharing with a gift toward your next purchase at, and thank our 5 favorite yoga studios for helping yogis clear their paths with a full-class supply of soulfully engineered Manduka gear – plus an unBLOK Kit (unBLOK, PRO Mat and Strap) for the yogis who nominated them. Later, you can vote for the studio that inspires you too – we’ll throw an unBLOK Party for the studio with the most votes, complete with yoga, music, dancing and Manduka gifts for the whole block.

It’s much easier to see where we’re going when we clear the path. So let’s have an unBLOK Party!

Practice On,

Since 2007, ZUDA Yoga has offered a challenging physical practice that is fun, dynamic and energizing with the profound message of yoga. Studio owners Anne Marie Kramer & Bill Prysock think of yoga as a way to help you get "within" to the place housing the answers to living an amazing life. Their founding principle is to build a sense of community where people can connect with others who are also walking a path of self-exploration and want to live deliberately. ZUDA Yoga has three locations in the Sacramento area.
