A little Yoga Mat history...
In 1982 an English Yoga teacher by the name of Angela Farmer was teaching yoga in Germany. Angela is widely credited with being the first person to create a modern style Yoga Mat by cutting down a piece of white carpet underlay and turning it in to a Yoga Mat to practice upon.
Upon returning to England her father contacted the German material manufacturer and began selling the first sticky Yoga Mat.
Purpose made Yoga mats were introduced to the USA in the 1990's.
Twenty years later your Yoga Mat can now reflect your personality as much as anything with a wide variety of sticky Yoga mats with beautiful designs suitable for all types of Yoga and styles.
DownDog Boutique has partnered with a variety of resellers and mat manufacturers to bring you a selection of the best Yoga & Pilates Mats.
As a small boutique business it is simply not possible for us to stock everything an aspiring yogi might be looking for but we can at least take some of the legwork (or fingerwork) out of the search.
Purchases made through our partners earn DownDog Boutique a small commission.
