Yoga Design Lab In The Press
“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.”
“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.”
“we all have a very different relationship with fitness. While some of us can hit the gym at 6.30am every day and leave feeling on top the world, others struggle to find any motivation to make a 6pm barre class.

“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.”
“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.”

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. It is a design studio founded by Canadian designer and yogi Chad Turner who wanted to make the experience appealing to those who never considered stepping on a yoga mat.
“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!”
“Let’s face it. We could all use a win every once in a while. To help facilitate this need for some winner winner chicken dinner (or tofu for you vegetarians), we do a weekly giveaway here at YogiApproved. You can be sure that all the products we give away meet our yogi needs and are 100% YogiApproved for your yoga lifestyle.”
“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
