An innovative design layering natural rubber and our specially engineered unique (do not accept cheap imitations!) non-toxic eco-polyurethane provides the most stable and comfortable practice surface and ultimate grip even when sweaty wet, no towel necessary. One of our most technical challenges was finding the balance between excellent durability for yoga and efficient biodegradability after the end of its use-life. A Liforme mat ticks all the boxes: comfortable, stable, durable, eco-friendly, body-kind, and most definitely grippy.
The World’s First Yoga Mat Alignment System
Liforme wasn’t the first to realize this, but we were the first to perfect a Yoga mat alignment system that really works. Have a look at the alignment mats that came before us and those that came after. Before, you would have seen grids, numbered circles, and footprints attempting to indicate exactly where to put your hands and feet.
These mats never caught on because they were so limiting. Every person is a different size, the proportions of every body are different, and there are many different styles and alignment philosophies within Yoga.
Our goal has always been flexibility. An alignment guide that works for all bodies, all types of Yoga, in class and at home, for beginners and long-time practitioners. When we debuted Liforme’s AlignForMe™ system, it looked like no other Yoga mat.
Since then, many imitators have appropriated the elements that make up our distinctive look: a vertical line down the centre, horizontal lines at both ends, 45-degree lines, and reverse points.
Before 2013, there were no Yoga mats that looked like ours. Now they are everywhere. That’s how you know we changed the game.
Vegan Certified, Biodegradable, PVC-free
Liforme set out to create a mat that is biodegradable, doesn’t harm the planet or your body, and provides the optimal combination of comfort, stability, and grip. This five-year process required a complete rethinking of existing Yoga mat materials and countless rounds of testing and reformulating until we found the right mix of performance and sustainability.
Liforme Yoga mats are also the first Yoga Mats to be Vegan certified demonstrating our commitment to the environment and alignment with the Yogic principle of Ahimsa (nonharm).
Eco-friendly, Non-toxic Materials
Many have appropriated Liforme’s look, but our imitators lack our commitment to environmental standards and fair labour and our dedication to innovation. When it comes to originality, performance and sustainability, Liforme is the one.
The Core Materials that make a Liforme Yoga Mat
Unique, Patented Three Layered Construction
We created an innovative, game-changing combination of materials which delivers the ultimate grip whilst keeping your mat hygienic at the very same time. Liforme’s base layer takes advantage of the stability and renewability of plant based natural rubber. Our very thin top layer is a smooth, cushiony, proprietary eco-polyurethane. In between, our patented CleanGrip® non-absorbent barrier layer bonds without toxic glues and allows the sweat and moisture to quickly evaporate from the top surface, providing the most grippy, comfortable and hygienic solution.
