About Us

The idea for Yogipaw Athletics started when I was heading to yoga practice and really wanted a mat that made me smile by reflecting what was in my heart. My thinking was that if my mat encouraged me to smile from the deepest core then my practice, and the results afterwards, would be so much more effective. Once my practice finished I was so inspired and knew I wanted to design mats that excited the eyes and humored the soul.

At that time I also was volunteering at a NO KILL animal shelter called “Friends For Life” in Houston, Texas. Once I started designing the mats I realized the mats began reminding me of the dogs at the shelter. Specifically my very own rescue pup, Ollie, that I had fostered and eventually adopted. Tying my two passions of yoga and animals started me on this inspiring journey.

Blending a creatively aesthetic design, eco-friendly materials, and the memory of a beautiful soul is what defines a Yogipaw Athletics mat. From the biodegradable natural tree rubber and water based inks to the machine washable and sweat absorbing functionality, our mats are made to love and to inspire.

Saving lives never got easier. $2 from every purchase goes to NO KILL animal shelters to help save more lives.

Together we can make a difference.
