LOS ANGELES, Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Manduka, purveyor of high performance yoga gear and the #1 choice of yoga teachers worldwide, today revealed the latest color story in its line of legendary yoga mats and towels, just in time for Spring.  Inspired by the beautiful "wow" moments happening in the natural world, the collection includes hues like Glow (yellow), Pop (orange), Pulse (red), Breeze (green), Shade (blue) and Black Flash (yellow + gray) in a variety of technical yoga products.   

To support the inspiration behind the new collection, Manduka has launched a 5-week digital campaign encouraging the yoga community to take a pause and experience the moment—by celebrating life, reveling in nature and embracing the now.  Every week Manduka will showcase a new color from the Spring line—in visual collage form—via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and its blog.  Manduka will then ask the community to share an image of their own to celebrate life's stunning moments, guided by that color.  Fans can tag their photos on Instagram and Twitter using #NOWisWOW or upload on Facebook. For every entry, Manduka will donate $1 to yoga charity, Off The Mat, up to $1500.

"Our mission at Manduka is to provide innovative, thoughtfully designed yoga gear that inspires our community," said Manduka CEO, Sky Meltzer.  "The new collection brings this inspiration to life through bold new colors and a campaign that encourages practitioners to pause, look around and reflect—on the mat or off.  We are excited to see and share the world through their lens, while giving back to a great cause."
