Design Highlights: Divine Chakras + Sapphire & Opal

With June beginning to draw to a close, we thought we should highlight two designs from our June Collection before they disappear at the beginning of July: Divine Chakras, and Sapphire & Opal. Divine Chakras was designed for those of you clamoring for a more traditional yoga-inspired mat. Something a bit more Buddha-like, featuring more traditional yogic elements like chakras.

(We’d like to think he’d be pleased with...

He’s handsome and muscular was well-liked and — in his own words: “You’d never know I'm gay except that I like dudes”. Nevertheless,...

After finding that his previous work as a graphic designer wasn't satisfying his creative soul, Pete Taboada became Pete Taboada: Visionary Spiritual Artist.

Design Highlight: Father’s Day Trio

In honor of Father’s Day this coming Sunday, our Design Highlight(s) of the week are three of our more masculine designs (or at least more gender-neutral designs). One is an oldie-but-a-goodie that we’ve included in our June 2019 collection (Behold the Summit), one is a design from our Compassion Collection that we’ve actually highlighted before (Terry in His Heartland), and the last is absolutely brand-new and just days old (Inhale the Future). Behold the Summit is one of our earliest designs from our original collection of yoga mats that we released more than a year ago. (Hard to believe it’s...
