I've been thinking about becoming taking my Yoga-self to new levels in 2017. I'm an old competitive gymnast, 47 and a mom of four boys, and things like Yoga, Pilates and Ballet resonate with me. Back in November, I was actually at my desk thinking about Yoga and how to accomplish my goals. One thing that went through my mind was my mat and towels and other yoga-gear were all worn. Needing inspiring I was sort of having that stuck feeling when an email from Yoga Design Lab appeared in my inbox. It really was "universe shows up for you" moment that sparked me to almost immediately email back and share my goals and vision for myself and Best Ever You with Riley at Yoga Design Lab.
We chatted and they graciously send me this mat and some other gear to update my gear and see what I thought of their products.
This mat that was sent to me (below) is absolutely beautiful. The design as others have said and I agree, is a stunning work of art. It's such a cool feeling for a product to be able to capture feelings and inspire you to be your very best.
My mat, is the Combo Mat - Floral Flow. This mat was designed to be the ultimate yoga companion. Reduce slipping, injuries and you no longer need to bring a mat AND towel to class anymore. All-in-one product. Machine washable.Carrying strap included.
With that said, Yoga Design Lab has launched it’s newest collection of eye-popping yogamats and luxury yoga accessories just in time for holiday shoppers who are looking for that fashionable yogi gift or purchase.
The innovative yoga brand has been shaking up the industry with yogamats described by Harper’s Bazaar, The Best Ever You Network and Refinery29 as 'stunning works of art’. With a growing US celebrity following, the company is excited about the response so far.
Designed in Bali by Canadian surfer/yogi Chad Turner, who sold all his stuff and moved there to launch the idea in 2014. The young brand produces visually stunning, fashion-forward and eco-friendly yoga products designed to inspire.
‘The goal with the new collection was to create prints that were as aesthetically pleasing as they are functional. Each print is systematically aligned to assist yoga practitioners to easily track their alignment and positioning during all poses.’ said Chad, YDL Founder.

"I was seated in the back of a packed yoga class while on vacation in Ubud, Bali. Looking around, all I saw was a sea of unoriginal, massed produced, solid colored mats. My thinking was, there must be a way of creating a highly functional product that was also aesthetically beautiful. So the journey began. Long story short, I sold my stuff, packed up a couple bags and moved to Bali with the goal of creating a stunning line of yoga products that inspire more people to get excited about yoga.”
