Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

Strong enough to hold my space, supportive and trustworthy. You never complains and do your job with excellence. You allow me to express myself fully. When my life gets crazy, you create the space for me to find peace within. When I am in a stressful situation, you create the space for me to release the tension. When I need to rejuvenate, you create the comfortable supportive space for me to fully rest and relax. Thank you Manduka, you are my best friend and best partner ever!

Founded in 2005, PEACE ( is a non-profit organization, located in the Punta de Mita region of Mexico, north of Puerto Vallarta. PEACE acts as an umbrella organization for four main programs, Casa Comunidad (Community House), Ayuda a los Animales (Help The Animals), United Hands for Women (Manos Unidas por la Mujer) and Orgullo en la Comunidad (Community Pride).

PEACE works hand in hand with communities to develop and implement appropriate community programs to enhance the quality of life for all. English classes, after-school programs, recycling initiatives, and a free mobile spay/neuter clinic are among the various projects.

Casa Comunidad Director, Nikhol Esterás Roberts, teaches free yoga classes to kindergartners and their mothers once weekly at the kindergarten in Punta de Mita. Manduka donated 10 yoga mats to the class!
