A yoga mat should fit in your bag, be lightweight, and be easy to clean and take anywhere.

What is a YogoMat?
The YogoMat is the World's Smallest, Lightest, Cleanest full-size yoga mat.

It folds up to the size of a wine bottle, is small enough to fit in purses and bags, unfolds to a full-size mat (24" x 68"), weighs only 2 pounds, and can be rinsed and hang-dried using its reversible straps. It has a slip-resistant grip, and is even really "grippy" with mild perspiration.

It's also 100% recyclable, made from 100% biodegradable, sustainably-harvested natural rubber, and Manufactured in the USA (Oregon).

Practice with the YogoMat anywhere:
   Traveling
(practice on the road)
   Commuting
(practice after work)
   Studio
(never use another "rental" mat again)
   Outside
(yoga isn't just an indoor activity)

Easy to keep Clean
The YogoMat features unique, patented straps which allow you to rinse and hang it to dry after you're done practicing. No more spraying alcohol to clean your mat or worries about mold or bacteria growth. Just rinse and hang, and the YogoMat is clean and dry when you want to use it again!

Cleanest yoga mat in the World
Because it folds upon itself, the top surface of the YogoMat never touches the surface facing the ground (unlike a regular yoga mat, which rolls up, causing the top to touch the bottom). Germs, viruses, molds, and even the sweat of others stays on the ground, and not on your practice surface.

The closed-cell rubber design also prevents any nasty germs, viruses and molds from making your YogoMat their home.

I Need Your Help
I practice on a YogoMat prototype, I think it's an amazing product, and I want to deliver a YogoMat to everyone who wants one. For the last two years I've prepared to do this - I've built and tested prototypes, secured a patent, found suppliers and manufacturers, and much more.

However, manufacturing requires minimum runs, and WITHOUT FINANCIAL BACKING ON KICKSTARTER, I can't personally afford to fund the first run of YogoMats on my own. Without your help, THE YOGOMAT WON'T SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY.

If you choose to back the YogoMat, you will personally participate in helping fund:
 
  1. the first round of YogoMat production, and
   2. the final development of a unique, natural rubber-based material not yet applied to yoga mats (the development material is softer, more flexible, and more foldable than anything out there).

Please don't feel obligated to back the YogoMat - but if you think it's as cool a product as I do, and if you practice yoga, or know anyone who does, please make a donation, tell friends/family about it, and help spread the word! Every backer makes a huge difference in this Kickstarter campaign!

If this Kickstarter campaign doesn't reach its goal of $36,000, no money will change hands, no one gets any rewards, and unfortunately the YogoMat may never be available for purchase.

KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN REWARDS

Social Responsibility
After I broke my neck in 2008, yoga helped me grow stronger and run again. Yoga is now used to help treat people living with paralysis, and I'm passionately committed to supporting the spinal cord injury community by working with organizations like the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation and NextStep Fitness to improve the quality of life of people who live with paralysis. Please refer to yogosport.com for more details.

Testimonials
"I'm on the road all the time. The YogoMat is amazing - it not only lets me practice yoga anywhere, but it's also awesome for quick stretching sessions after long runs. It folds up very small and is always in my carry-on when traveling. Even if my luggage gets lost, I know I can do yoga after long flights and drives!" - Till Schenk, Sports Commentator

"The YogoMat is to busy, urban-ite yogis what the Macbook Air is to the tech community. A simpler, more efficient solution to practice yoga anywhere!" - The Crowdfund Mafia
