Discover the innovations that make Liforme Yoga Mats truly revolutionary

Stays grippy even when ‘sweaty-wet’

GripForMe® Material

We believe our revolutionary GripForMe® technology is the grippiest Yoga mat material currently available on Earth. 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, no need to worry about losing balance or sliding and no towel necessary. The perfect balance of durability 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.

AlignForMe® System

The value of incorporating immediate, intuitive, visual alignment feedback into your Yoga practice cannot be overstated.
Liforme wasn’t the first to realise this, but we were the first to perfect a Yoga mat alignment system that really works. Previous attempts with grids, circles, and footprints were limiting due to varying body sizes, styles and alignment philosophies in Yoga. Our goal has always been flexibility. An alignment guide that works for all bodies, all types of Yoga, levels, whether in class or at home. When we debuted Liforme’s AlignForMe® system, it looked like no other Yoga mat.

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.

Planet Friendly Materials

When Liforme was established, most yoga mats were made from PVC, a material that is highly ill-suited to Yoga: due to its slippery surface, quick deterioration, and inefficient biodegradability. Liforme set out to create a mat that is biodegradable, PVC-free, doesn’t harm the planet or your body, and provides the optimal blend of comfort, stability, and grip. This five-year process required a complete rethinking of existing Yoga mat materials and extensive testing and reformulating until we achieved the optimal balance between performance and sustainability.

The Top Layer

Proprietary eco-polyurethane

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. This is why our very thin top layer of our Yoga Mat, is a smooth, cushiony layer, made from a specially engineered Eco-Polyurethane with an open cell structure that is both grippy, absorbent and biodegradable within 1-5 years!

Natural Rubber

All our Yoga Mats have a durable natural rubber base, which provides strong support, stability and cushioning for your practice.

Liforme only uses rubber that is sourced sustainably. We believe that rubber can and should be produced without clearing natural forests. When done responsibly, rubber production increases biodiversity and carbon sequestration, and reduces carbon dioxide emissions from deforestation.

Vegan Certified Yoga Mats

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).

Our mats are PVC-free, biodegradable in 1-5 years in normal landfill conditions and made using high-quality non-toxic materials. We spent 5 years developing the most planet-friendly Yoga mat using high-quality materials.

PVC’s resistance to degradation means that just about every Yoga mat ever made from it is still sitting in a landfill somewhere or releases harmful toxins when burnt.

Maximum Hygiene

CleanGrip® Technology

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.
