Alignment System

Liforme gives a minimum of 10% of our profits to our LiveForMore Foundation to give back to our community and planet.

Historically, we’ve also often gone beyond this on many occasions, because sometimes there are things we just can’t ignore or where we have felt we just needed to do more.

Why Alignment Matters

The significance of integrating immediate, intuitive, visual alignment feedback into your Yoga practice cannot be emphasised enough. Without it, Yogis may can weaken their body through repetitive incorrect placement or alignment. At Liforme, we recognise the importance of this aspect and have developed an alignment guide that works for all bodies, all types of Yoga and levels.

What are the benefits?

Injury Prevention
Better Form & Posture

Injury Prevention

Each Yoga pose has an optimal alignment that respects the natural range of motion of your joints. Alignment guides help you to understand how to position your joints correctly, ensuring that the appropriate muscles are engaged and supporting the movement. This engagement helps distribute the load evenly across your muscles, reducing the risk of overuse or strain.

Better Form & Posture

Alignment guides encourage Yogis to pay attention to symmetry and balance in their poses. They provide visual guidance on how to align different parts of the body, such as your hands and feet. By aligning both sides of the body evenly and symmetrically, Yogis can avoid developing imbalances or asymmetries that can lead to poor posture or compensatory movements, therefore, improving good posture and form.


Consistently practicing good alignment helps you progress your Yoga practice further. Alignment guides help you develop greater body awareness and your understanding of alignment principles, so you can deepen your practice and explore more advanced poses, making new poses feel more accessible.

Liforme's AlignForMe® System

We created a unique and original, AlignForMe® System that works as a navigational tool for your Yoga practice. The combination of intelligent markers gives you as much, or as little, guidance as you need. Whether you're in a class setting or practicing at home, our alignment guide empowers you to attain optimal alignment, enhancing the effectiveness and transformative potential of your practice.

End-to-End Lines

These lines help yogis of all levels enhance keep your hands & feet evenly aligned, length-ways. They help aid accurate positioning of hands, feet, and body throughout sequences.

Reverse Points

The Reverse Points assist Yogis in maintaining proper form and symmetry by providing visual cues for hand and foot placement when on their back.

45° Lines

In standing postures, the 45° Lines provide a visual reference to help you to align your back heels and find stability and perfect posture in poses such as Warrior I and Warrior II.

Central Line

The central line on the Liforme yoga mat aids in establishing evenness and width-wise alignment, ensuring balanced positioning of hands and feet in poses like Downward Facing Dog or Plank Pose.

The Lotus

Use the Lotus, or centrepiece of your alignment guide, to align yourself with the centre of your mat, which serves as the root of your symmetry, ensuring balance and stability as you ground yourself in the heart of your practice.
