Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

My Manduka mat has become a personal friend to me over many years, steadfast it has watched my practice grow, quietly it supports me in the most difficult poses and the most easeful.

LAPD Newton PAL Program

The LAPD’s Newton Police Activities League (PAL) Program is a non-profit organization that introduces inner city kids to Yoga and other artistic and creative endeavors. PAL is a crime prevention program designed to build positive relationships between the youth in the community and police officers. This program is based on the conviction that young people - if they are reached early enough -- can develop strong, positive attitudes towards police officers and the law.

Newton PAL was formed as a way to give the youth in the community structured activities as well as safe spaces to play with friendly officers watching over. Manduka was happy to donate 20 eKO Lite mats to the LAPD’s Newton PAL Program, since the scope of the activities have broadened from mainly team sports to also include creative endeavors.
