Manduka is a company founded on the simple idea that a better yoga mat can make a world of difference. Ten years ago Peter Sterios, an architect turned yogi, discovered a simple, elegantly-designed black mat whose unique combination of firm grip and complete support revolutionized his yoga practice. In honor of the yoga masters who inspired him, he sought to share this amazing product with others. And in the great yoga tradition, these teachers shared their mats with their students, and a true yoga company was born. Now, the joy of Manduka is spoken in more than 25 countries across the world. As Manduka celebrates its 12th year, we are still evolving, still introducing new products, and still celebrating the spirit and wisdom of the yoga teachers and yoga students who help make us the world’s most inspired yoga accessories company.
