Attention all yoga practitioners. It has been discovered that the key to inner harmony, or at least to impressing friends by getting into Handstand Scorpion pose, is not, in fact, hours of practice. No. The key to success is a better yoga mat. In 1997, Peter Sterios, a former architect and yoga devotee found his perfect yoga mat. Its combination of firm grip and total support revolutionized his way of doing yoga. Not one to keep his discoveries close to the chest, he shared his finding with everyone around him and Manduka was born. Today, Manduka offers yoga mats, props, towels and bags for novitiates and devoted yoga practitioners alike. Manduka crafts its offerings out of simple, natural, and when possible, eco-friendly and renewable resources. Whether customers like Hatha or hot, they'll find the right gear at Manduka. Namaste.
