RSPCA and Liforme
We are very proud to support the world-renowned Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA, registered charity no. 219099) which has worked tirelessly to protect all animals, and to be a part of the broader global movement to promote better treatment of the many animals with whom we share this planet. It is the RSPCA's vision to live in a world where all animals are respected and treated with compassion and, at Liforme, we believe that we as Yogis of course should respect and encourage others to respect all living beings and animals of all kinds in line with the important Yogic principle of Ahimsa (non-violence).
Patanjali nailed it when he said: "Sthira Sukham Asanam" (Asana is a steady comfortable posture). One of the most important functions of a Yoga mat is to provide grip. Slipping around can make your practice ineffective, or even dangerous. We believe our revolutionary 'GripForMe' material is the grippiest Yoga mat material currently available on earth. And it stays grippy even when 'sweaty wet'. Feeling is believing.
We believe in being as 'planet friendly' as possible. Who doesn't these days? We've also taken a moment to think about your physical wellbeing and have used the most 'body kind' materials and processes that we could, in engineering and making the Liforme 'Year of the Dog' Yoga Mat. Our mat is PVC free and we've used naturally sourced sustainable rubber for the bulk of the mat. We've etched the AlignForMe markers on the mat instead of printing with potentially harmful inks. We've also used a revolutionary heat-bonding process that eliminates the need for toxic glues to bind the top layer to the base layer.
Our unique, and revolutionary, AlignForMe system works as a navigational tool for your Yoga asana practice. No more will you have to stumble around, wondering what should go where, or guessing if you're in alignment. The combination of intelligent markers gives you as much, or as little, guidance as you need.
Although we live and practice Yoga in tiny spaces – in studio apartments bumping into our furniture or in crowded Yoga classes bumping into other yogis' asanas (!) – we'd all prefer a little bit more space. So, we've created it on our mat. The 'Year of the Dog' Yoga Mat is a few inches wider and longer than regular Yoga mats making it accessible for Yogis of all shapes and sizes!
We don't know about you, but in some postures our bony bits dig into the floor and it doesn't feel good. We think these areas (knees and hips, for instance) should be protected. We've used a strong natural rubber base and added a cushioned felt portion in between that and the top layer of the mat. This provides a deep cushioned and yet very solid and stable practising surface.
Throughout the design process we've consulted and gathered inspiration from some of the best yogis in the world. And to celebrate Chinese New Year we have created this extra special mat just for you! We all love Yoga at Liforme and we all want to give you a quality product to help further your Yoga practice too.
Perfectionist is a conservative term for us. We're exacting from start to finish and we are confident the Liforme 'Year of the Dog' Yoga Mat is as good as it gets.
