The concept for Supported Soul came to Nicole during a Yin yoga class. She was holding a pose with her feet up the wall and realized that while her yoga mat was supporting her physically, yoga has also supported her mentally throughout the toughest times in life.
The intention for Supported Soul is to source and deliver products that support and enhance your yoga practice.
All mats are designed in Vancouver, Canada.
Each of our mats are printed using non-fade, water based inks. Free from silicone, chlorine, latex, phthalates, and other chemicals; they are completely biodegradable, reusable and recyclable.
These mats are kind to the environment and to you. Relax and be at peace with the earth!
Show your mat some love!
Keep it looking (and performing) as gorgeous as ever with these tips:
- To best preserve your mat and keep it in pristine condition- hand washing is the best option. Spritzing with your favourite mat cleaner and wiping it down with a cloth works brilliantly.
- Depending on how intensely sweaty your practice, every 3-4 uses you may want to pop your mat in the washing machine (gentle cycle, cold water, mild detergent, no bleach) and hang to dry (no dryer). Front loading washing machines work best for this method of cleaning as an agitator can cause friction and potential damage to the rubber base.
- Because we use non-toxic, water-based inks, after the first machine washing you may want to wipe down your mat with an old towel to absorb any excess surface pigment that may have come loose. This doesn't always happen, but with our darker designs it is more common- similar to the first machine wash of raw denim.
- After machine washing, you can speed up drying time by wrapping your mat in a towel and pressing out excess water (do not wring). To avoid the rubber base stretching, do not leave your mat hanging for extended periods of time- if this happens, roll your mat up in the reverse direction of the bend and it will resolve to it's original shape.
- Avoid direct sunlight for extended periods of time in order to keep your design vibrant.
- If you have dry hands and feet, lightly spray or sprinkle your mat with water to increase grip until you really start to sweat.
