When we first had the idea to create a foldable yoga mat, there were a few boxes that needed to be ticked before we were ready for production. As a yoga teacher, I have tried and tested many mats on the market. Some I have grown to love, but there have always been a few things I’ve struggled with, which led me to the creation of our Movement Mat aka your new favourite travel yoga mat.
As a lover of all kinds of movement, I like to continue my movement rituals even when I go on vacation. Although some people might find this far from relaxing, I’m someone who craves the endorphins that come with a quick snappy routine - 20 minutes is all I need. I don’t know about you, but there’s something about communal, hotel gym yoga mats that gives me the creeps - especially post pandemic. Up until a few months ago, I would take my 1mm thick travel ‘yoga mat’ with me when I hopped on a plane. My knees were unhappy, my joints were certainly not supported, but it folded, so it was solving 1 of my problems, right?
Here are 5 things about our foldable yoga mat that make our product unique:
Lightweight - Our foldable yoga mat (or as we like to call it, a Movement Mat) weighs only 1.2kg, making it easy to take on holiday or take to your local studio. Most yoga mats on the market weigh around 2.5kg or more. We made it our mission to keep the weight down, without compromising on comfort and style. We think we nailed it.
Compact - Watching people walk the streets, ride their bikes, or attempt to get on public transport with their bulky heavy mats is a scene we are all too familiar with (especially if you live in a big city). The Movement Mat folds into the perfect square, fits beautifully in our Movement Bag, you can store it at home out of the way, and take it with you on the go.
Foldable - The name gives it away, but this baby folds myriad ways to support your body and make you excited about your movement rituals. Unfold and enjoy!
Eco-friendly - Our Movement Mat is made from top grade 100% TPE material. TPE (Thermal Plastic Elastomer) is a synthetic rubber. This material contains no latex, PVC, rubber or any harsh toxins or chemicals. The closed cell construction of your Movement Mat is designed to decompose in landfill. Better for your knees, and the environment.
Better for your joints - We all know that feeling of kneeling on your mat feeling that wooden floor beneath you; and it sucks. Our mat is 6mm thick and when folded you can have double or triple the support. That’s 18mm of juicy thick material supporting those beautiful knee caps of yours.
If you love movement but hate having to lug around a big, bulky mat, our Movement Mat was made for you. Our Movement Mats are lightweight and easy to transport, making them perfect for those on the go. Suitable for all kinds of movement to support all types of bodies to ensure you can enjoy your movement rituals, whatever that may look like.
