Natural Grip Wet or Dry

No more hesitating in postures because you are afraid of slipping. Practice towel free, even during the sweatiest practices.

Feel Grounded

Optimum blend of support and stability allows you to focus on one thing, your practice.


Combining natural cork with our signature plant foam, the Original is made from 70% renewable materials.


Proudly hailing from the artistic hub of the 757 area of Virginia, Noraa James' creations, including his photography, painting, and digital art, reflect the many roots intertwining to make his artistic expression as intentional and thought-provoking as it is.
Blackness comes in many forms, which is something to be celebrated and revered. It's surreal. It's weird. It's expansive. It's a physical manifestation of our ancestors, which James vividly conveys in his work.
For James, his art offers his audience a view into the future, to see what Blackness looks like when centered around beauty, the will to survive, diversity, and everything that contributes to the complex but rich culture. Afrofuturism isn't just a focal point of James' art; he lives it daily by hoping and dreaming for a better future.

Gorgeous and functional

I received my mat about two weeks ago and I just love it. The cork is both grippy and gives me a more form footing than my previous mat. Love the design and the colors too.

This is great to hear, Virginia! Thank you for your kind words.

Worth the Investment

I love this mat! There's no slippage, it's well made, and very thick. The design is beautiful.

Grippy and beautiful is a great combination!

Kimberly Ramirez
Amazing Mat! My absolute favorite ever!

I have tried multiple mats before and I would always have an issue with slippery hands and/or feet but this mat is great! No slips at all! It is so refreshing to go into a class a know that my mat isn’t going to interfere with my practice. Not only does it not interfere though, I feel like it enhances my practice. I love unrolling my mat; the materials, the quality, and the cork are so nice! I am so happy I spent the extra money on something that makes me so happy and makes my practice that much more enjoyable. I would definitely purchase this again.

Thanks Kimberly. It makes us so happy to hear we've been able to help enhance your practice!

Love it

This mat has completely upgraded my hot yoga practice. I highly recommend it

We love to hear that- nothing like cork for grip during an extra sweaty practice!

Best in class

My latest purchase was to replace my yoloha mat I used at least 10 years. It was emotional 😆... my vinyasa includes a kiss to my mat full push-ups. Cork is 👍 👌 the only way to ground. Years ago I got the cork roll bad and use at least 3x a week for many years. I just ordered 2 of the shoulder bags too. Love them one will be a gift

Hey Allyn! Thanks for being such an awesome part of our Yoloha family, we love that you've been with us so long and appreciate your support so much :)
