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.

Why Manduka?: There’s no reason to buy any other mat. None. I’ve watched my students carry their Manduka mats all over the world on retreats with me. They’d rather make room in their suitcase for their beloved Black mat than they would for their clothes. It’s that important.

What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me #practice patience, presence and personal progress.

Yoga Style: Vinyasa
