YoMats is a Berlin based Yoga Brand made by Yoga Teachers for Yoga Lovers!!
YoMats are environmentally friendly produced Yoga mats, made of natural tree rubber. They are eco-friendly, colorful, uniquely designed and tap into the demanding Zeitgeist for an open-minded earth connected lifestyle.
Berlin based founders Steph and Izogie are global travelers, with a great passion for different cultures, rituals and magical places.
Their impressions from all over the world manifest in the ethnic designs of YoMats. They feel honoring ethnic cultures is an expression of tradition and connection to mother earth.
Born in Berlin, Steph travelled the world as a model for many years. After switching positions and having worked behind the camera on photo productions and advertisement sales for fashion magazines, she became a professional Yoga teacher in 2003.
Furthermore she held a managing position at Soho House Private Member Club, responsible for member events and relations. After travelling Asia and spending a few month in Bali, she returned to Berlin to follow her passion in teaching full-time Yoga and creating YoMats.
Working world wide as a model, German/Nigerian Izogie decided to add to her experience. Gaining great inside into many different cultures and peoples lives, the philanthropist decided to pursue a law degree to assist and to change the seen.
As a passionate Yoganista and coming from the world of fashion, Izogie combined her love for yoga and fashion and made use of her refined eye for style and high quality. The idea for YoMats, a mixture of hippy and high-end, comfortable and eco-friendly Yoga mats was born.
Izogie and Steph want to share their passion for Yoga, style, freedom and tradition. They love to inspire Yoga practitioners to rise above themselves, creating a strong, positive way of thinking.
YoMats are not made by a big company, but by two free spirits living the yogic and urban lifestyle. In fact Steph and Izogie created a product, they felt was missing.
Until today, both share a love for travelling with open eyes and hearts.
