The Yogi Jacket is the world’s first everyday jacket designed to provide acupressure benefits that help you get into a deep state of relaxation to elevate your overall well-being.

The Jacket and the Hoodie are the first of its kind made with luxurious comfort and premium quality. It is lightweight, breathable & durable.

Whether you're in office, climbing a mountain, kayaking, running, doing yoga, in a gym, an airplane or train, camping, driving or working the Yogi Jacket will have your back! You can get its benefits any day, anywhere, anytime.

The Yogi Jacket’s spikes pad — comprised of over 7,000 spikes — provides the feel and benefits of a professional acupressure treatment for a fraction of the price.

It relieves back pain, promotes relaxation of tense muscles throughout the day and is known for increasing blood circulation. Not to mention, the pad increases energy levels and stops headaches or migraines. It also promotes deep and restful sleep.

Wear your Yogi Jacket with or without the spikes pad; it can be easily removed at any time.

We’ve designed the Yogi Jacket spikes to mimic the benefits of Acupressure. Here are some of the incredible findings related to acupressure:

 This study investigates the effects of acupressure devices on patients after two weeks of regular use. Out of 126 subjects, 98% reported pain relief, 96% reported relaxation, 94% reported improvement in the quality of sleep, and 81% reported an increase in energy levels.

This study investigates the effects of acupressure mats on 36 participants reporting long term neck and back tension. Participants used acupressure mats for 15 minutes a day over a 3-week duration. The study reported the following results:

Fifteen minutes of daily rest on the acupressure spikes mat significantly reduced experienced pain intensity. During visits at the clinic, patients stated they felt more energized and slept better.

This study investigates the physiological and psychological response of 32 healthy patients whilst lying on an Acupressure spikes Mat for 20 minutes. The clinical trial reported the following results: Perceptual increased rate of relaxation, Reduction in heart rate, Reduction in blood pressure and Increase in back temperature.

The study followed 40 patients with chronic neck pain and 42 patients with chronic back pain using a needle stimulation pad (acupressure mat) once daily for 30 minutes, over a period of 14 days.

The trial reported the following results: Reported reduction in both neck and lower back pain and a deeper sense of relaxation.

Rain or shine, self-healing is possible. The Yogi Jacket’s woven shell and water-resistant film insert allow you to experience acupressure no matter what life throws at you.

The Yogi Jacket is machine washable, and the spikes pad can be washed by hand with soap and water.

Comfortable, yet lightweight. The Yogi Jacket is lined with microfleece, so you can wear it for every occasion without feeling like you’re weighed down.

Fun fact: 10% of the polyester is made from recycled bottles!

Sometimes, you don’t want everyone knowing your business. And that’s OK. 

The Yogi Jacket’s discreet design lets you put your well being first, without anyone else knowing.

If you prefer more casual comfort pieces in your closet, the Yogi Jacket is also offered in a hoodie style, which is manufactured with 100% cotton. The colors black and navy both provide you with the opportunity for personalization that matches your style.

Yogi Jacket is a startup in the lone star state, Texas. Our team consists of product designers, entrepreneurs, engineers and supply chain experts. We believe in providing natural, holistic cure products that are free from negative side effects and improve the quality of life. 

We can personally relate to the everyday stresses of the modern world that leave us feeling like we’re not in control of our own lives due to anxiety, stress, and physical pain. To combat that, we researched and tried acupressure therapy ourselves and loved it. The challenge that we faced was incorporating the therapy in our daily routine on the go. That's when the idea of the world's first on-the-go acupressure Jacket, YOGI JACKET, was born. 

Our manufacturing partners are ready to go and we need your support to bring Yogi Jacket to life.

We’d like to give a special thanks to Jared and Valerie from Prominence Films!

We are calling on the community of innovators on Kickstarter to help us launch this new, unique product. Our trusted manufacturing partners need a minimum financial commitment from us to get started on a larger manufacturing run. That is why we have set our funding goal to $20,000. Thank you for having our backs, just like we have yours! 

We can’t thank you enough for checking out our project and helping us make the Yogi Jacket a reality. 

We know not everyone will be able to support us with a pledge, so even if you can’t give a dollar or purchase a Yogi Jacket, if you’re a supporter of the Yogi Jacket, you can help us spread the word on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Instagram and anywhere else you can think of!

Risks and challenges

We’re a team of designers, engineers and supply chain experts; we just need your help to bring everything to fruition.

After testing the Yogi Jacket around the world, we're confident that Yogi Jacket will not only match but exceed any expectations we've set here.

While there are always risks and challenges with creating and delivering a brand new product, we've minimized risk by locking down our manufacturers who will be able to ship within 60 days of successful project funding. However, if anything comes up along the way, you’ll be the first to know.

We believe in under-promising and over-delivering, and we will do everything in our power to do that here for you!
