The eco-friendly yoga mat that folds and secures to fit in bags and purses, is easy to clean, and that you can take anywhere.

Thank you for all your support! When the campaign is over, you can still pre-order the YogoMat on Crowd Supply.

"A simpler, more efficient solution to practice yoga anywhere." - Crowdfund Mafia

"I'll never have a bulky yoga mat sticking out of my jogging stroller again." - Kathleen Hicks, Yoga Instructor, Runner, Triathlete & Mom

"Perfect protection against germs, viruses, molds and sweat." - Dr. Prem's Yoga Guide

What is a YogoMat?

The most convenient, cleanest full-size yoga mat (EVER). 

About the size of a bottle of wine when folded, the YogoMat fits in bags and purses without coming unfolded. It can also be hung to dry after cleaning.

Can your mat do that?

The YogoMat

  • 100% biodegradable, sustainably-harvested natural rubber mat
  • 100% recyclable
  • 2 pounds light
  • Rinse and hang-dry using reversible straps
  • Slip-resistant and very "grippy" even with mild perspiration
  • Also perfect for P90X, Pilates and other mat-based exercise 
  • Manufactured in the USA


Take your workout anywhere, without the bulky, heavy mat.

  • Commuting before/after work or school
  • Traveling by plane, train, bike, or rollerskates
  • Studio (never use another gross "rental" mat again)

Cleanest yoga in the World

The YogoMat features patented straps that allow you to rinse and hang it to dry when you're done practicing.

A regular yoga mat rolls up, practice surface touching underside, which faces the dirty ground. Because the YogoMat folds up, its top surface never touches its bottom surface.

Germs, viruses, molds, and sweat therefore stay on the ground - and not on your practice surface.

Help make the YogoMat a reality!

I practice on a YogoMat and I want to share it with you. I've built and tested prototypes, secured a patent, and even found suppliers and manufacturers, but now I need your help to fund the first round of YogoMat production

If you practice yoga or know anyone who does, please consider backing the YogoMat, tell friends/family about it, and help me spread the word!

Receive your own YogoMat(s) for backing and help determine their color(s)!

Backers vote on and decide YogoMat mat color(s).
Backers vote on and decide YogoMat mat color(s).

UPDATE: The initial fundraising goal of $16K has been reached, so at least ONE color of YogoMats will be available!

UPDATE: The next fundraising goal of $25K has been reached, so TWO colors of YogoMats will be available!

  • If $34K is raised, THREE colors will be available.
  • If $38K is raised, your YogoMat(s) will arrive in beautiful, minimal, customized 100% recycled cardboard packaging that includes folding instructions.

Social Responsibility

After I broke my neck in 2008, yoga helped me grow stronger, run again, and even run ultramarathons (and make it into Runner's World!). Yoga is now used to help treat people living with spinal cord injuries, and I'm committed to helping non-profit organizations like NextStep Fitness use yoga to improve the quality of life of people who live with paralysis.

  • As a backer, you will help determine the color of the very first production run of YogoMats. Now that the initial goal of $16,000, and the secondary goal of $25,000 has been reached, at least two colors of the YogoMat's natural rubber mat will be available. Those colors will be determined by popular vote by backers of the project. If the YogoMat can raise $34,000, three colors of YogoMats will be available, all three colors selected by backers.

    Additionally, Backers will be able to choose their own strap color from a selection of colors.
