Yoga Design Lab In The Press
“Zugegeben, der kreative Anspruch und die ästhetische Vielfalt von Yogamatten gestaltete sich bisweilen eher überschaubar. Ein zartes Rosé galt unter all den Beige- und Olivtönen hier fast schon als avantgardistisch und kunstvolle Musterungen waren seltene Einzelstücke. Dem setzt Chad Turner mit der Gründung des Labels “Yoga Design Labs” endgültig ein Ende!”View Article
“The minds behind Yoga Design Lab, the new brand that’s popping up on our radar this month, want to make your yoga practice a bit more comfortable and a lot more colorful. “I wanted to create mats that got people excited to practice yoga,” founder Chad Turner says. “The inspiration came from Bali and appreciation for colors that make your heart dance.” The brand came about in a very eat-pray-Zen way: “I sold my stuff, packed up a couple bags, and moved to Bali with the goal of creating a line of yoga accessories that would inspire people around the world,” Turner explains.”View Article

“While Chad Turner was doing yoga on a vacation in Bali, he had a realization that killed his bliss: All of the yoga mats around him were ugly.
“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,” says Turner, noting the disconnect even more acutely in paradise.”View Article
“If you’re looking to deepen your practice, try using a yoga wheel. Similar to the bolster, it’s great to help open up your chest, as well as your shoulders, back, and hip flexor, plus it can help with backbends.”View Article
“The goal of Yoga Design Lab’s founder was to create a mat as beautiful as it was functional. Eco-conscious materials? Check. A non-slip surface? Check? Stunning designs? Check, please!”View Article
“There are so many beautiful mat designs and colours at Yoga Design Lab that you’ll want them all. This mat/ towel hybrid negates the need to carry both, is super lightweight and easy to fold. A great one to help you avoid the studio mats, which are the perfect playground for breeding bacteria.”View Article
Getting people to practice yoga can sometimes feel like a chore, but modern individuals with an appreciation for pop art and modern design will find themselves eager to participate thanks to Yoga Design Lab.

“When it comes time to wake up, a curtain must be drawn so natural light shines in, and three to four alarms must be pre-set (because I wake up and turn off the first two usually). From there it’s just the normal brush, shower, and out the door. Others have more intricate steps that entail breakfast, coffee, workouts, etc. We’re all so different, but we all have different morning routines ensure we capture that pesky worm.”View Article
“Hier setzt man am besten auf eine schwarze Yoga-Hose aus festem Material mit einem hohen Lycra-Anteil: Solche Exemplare haben zusätzlich einen Figur-schmeichelnden Effekt. Besonders schöne Exemplare bietet hier das Label Yoga Design Lab, das die schlichten Hosen durch Lasercuts aufwertet.”View Article
“If you plan to exercise on the go, this lightweight yoga mat is the perfect tool to do so. The mat itself (which acts as both a mat and a yoga towel in one) folds super flat, so it’ll be easy to throw in your suitcase. Take it out in your hotel room, find a yoga video on your phone or computer, and get a good workout in without having to pack bulky gym shoes.”View Article
“The Yoga Design Lab Geo Travel Yoga Mat has a gorgeous and lux design, and with a microfiber top layer, it’s perfect for a slip-free hot yoga session. We love that the mat is eco-friendly, biodegradable and produced from recycled material. Plus, $1 from every purchase goes to support Urban Youth Yoga Programs.”View Article
“Yoga mat towels not only assist with the slippage factor when things get sweaty, they also provide a machine-washable barrier between your mat and your face during the intimate moments of child’s pose.
But they’re not always the easiest tool to practice with — they bunch, they slide, and if you’re like me, you forget them at home. Yoga Design Lab has your back. Their Combo Mat ($68) combines a lightweight 3.5mm biodegradable tree rubber mat with an absorbent top layer in an array of vivid, on-trend prints. Think of a pink peony flower bomb, a dreamy violet watercolor ombre, and a psychedelic collaboration with designer Mara Hoffman.”View Article
