Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

On Manduka I feel like I have a chance to try again. Each time I plant my feet firmly on my mat, I am reminding myself that I am still here. I am reminded that I am alive.

Why Manduka?: With a mat that I know will last me a lifetime and leaves no trace along the way, I can practice with the clarity and intention to leave as little of my own trace as possible on the planet, yet leave as much peace and inspiration as I can with my community through my practice.

What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice with steadiness and ease.
