A yoga mat isn’t just a piece of equipment; it’s a sacred space where growth, challenge, and the art of letting go come to life. Imagine the joy of crafting such a space with the magic of design. Well, that’s exactly what I had the pleasure of doing!

My canvas? A stunning, eco-conscious yoga mat – a designer’s dream come true.

In a heart-to-heart chat with Lydia, the visionary behind it all, we unearthed three profound themes that became the titles of our enchanting series:

  1. Growth
  2. Let Go
  3. Connect

With each theme, I embarked on an exhilarating journey of ideation, diving deep into the essence of these words.

My mission? To create visual wonders that not only support yoga’s physicality but also nourish the soul through meditation – a cornerstone of the practice.

And guess what? The result isn’t just visually striking; it’s poetry in design.

🎨 Behold, three yoga mats that are more than mats; they’re art pieces, infused with layers of meaning.

Let’s take a peek behind the curtain of creativity:

GROWTH: The Lotus Unfolds

Yoga is like a lotus journey. We blossom, petal by petal, just like the lotus unfolds its beauty. From the mud to the sunlight, it mirrors our personal growth. This symbol dances across our Growth mat, a reminder of our endless potential.

LET GO: Embracing Freedom

Letting go is tough, isn’t it? We chose the Hamsa, a powerful protector, to guide us. Each of its five fingers is a step in releasing the unnecessary. Starting as an insight, we journey through the elements and chakras, eventually breaking free.

CONNECT: Uniting the Universe

Yoga weaves connections. The mandala, a universe in a circle, harmonizes nature, people, place, ancestors, and self. At its core, ‘Om’ resonates – the universe’s heartbeat, connecting mind, body, and spirit.

Each piece followed a meticulous process:

  1. 🌱 Ideation
  2. ✏️ Sketching and presenting three dazzling options
  3. 🧐 Selecting the chosen concept
  4. 🖌️ Finetuning and crafting the illustration
  5. 🗣️ Gathering feedback
  6. 🎨 Adding vibrant colors
  7. 🎁 Delivering the final print files

Every stroke and shade was made with profound care and love. Conscious choices lie at the heart of my design philosophy. I pick collaborators who share these values because, in this vast universe of objects, we should choose mindfully.

So, dear wanderer, as you explore this enchanting world of yoga mats and design, know that every stroke, every hue, and every symbol is a gateway to mindfulness.

Feel the energy, embrace the art, and may your yoga journey be as beautiful as these mats.

Namaste 🙏🌸
