Manduka was built on a simple idea—that a better yoga mat makes a significant difference for the body, mind, and soul, even during the hours off of the mat. Created for and by yoga enthusiasts, each mat, towel, yoga strap, water bottle, and bag is produced with the intention of enriching the yoga community. The result are technical- and purpose-driven designs that provide innovative products to more than 60 countries around the world. Aside from premium design, Manduka also promotes their ethos of quality, thoughtfulness and sustainability in all realms of their business.
Guided by a mission of embracing every student's quest for personal growth, the team at YogaWorks offers programs for all ages and walks of life. Harnessing a minimum of 500 hours of Yoga Alliance training, expert instructors build lean muscles with traditional Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Vinyasa flow classes enhanced by inspiring music, ambient candlelight, meditation, and props. Their fitness classes further the body-shaping results of yoga, strengthening core muscles with Pilates, increasing endurance and lean muscles with TRX classes, and building stamina with resistance-based SculptWorks.
Instructors also host exotic yoga retreats, which marry the excitement of travel to far-away locales with the benefits of yoga to bestow students with the confident grace required to approach a foreign yoga mat without startling it.
