Wellness Products Can Be Expensive.
So, we are sharing two things:
1. our favorites (like, the best yoga mats out there or *must have* props)
2. any deals or industry promotions that we can pass on
I've been practicing for fourteen years and spent 4+ of them in upper-management in natural food stores and yoga studios.
I've tried lots of different products and I have favorites.
You can also subscribe to the newsletter below and we'll make sure that we get you updates about pertinent promotions or new products.

Another thing Manduka does really well is cork blocks...
If you are serious about getting started and don't want to piece everything together, this is a good way to get all of your essentials in one shot.
