Get to know us.
Yin Yoga Mats was founded in 2016 by yogi Kirsty Walsh, inspired by her love of design, yoga, and travel. The brand originated with Kirsty's desire to create a beautiful space within the home to inspire a daily practice. The Yin Yoga Mat collection is now stocked in over 30 yoga studios within Australia.
The Yin Yoga Mat collection is influenced by culture-rich international locations, in which Kirsty has spent time hand sourcing antique rugs, kilim's, and tapestry's to incorporate into design. Through exploring the corners of the globe, Yin Yoga Mats reflects the vibrancy and bohemian style that captures the imagination, and enlivens a daily yoga practice. This creative vision is all brought to life in Kirsty's beautiful home in the harbour-side town of Watsons Bay, Sydney.
Kirsty's focus is to create not only a yoga brand, but a lifestyle brand that cultivates awareness over the usage of plastic, PVC and their effect on our planet. Having a strong focus on environmental sustainability is the core of Yin Yoga Mats, and Kirsty's focus is to utilise new yoga manufacturing techniques by bonding microfibre to naturally captured and sustained rubber.
Yin Yoga Mats are designed to add inspiration to your daily practice with signature designs influenced from Kirsty's world travels and the beautiful surroundings of Watsons Bay, Sydney.
Designed for you to flow.
Our yoga mats are crafted to add inspiration to your daily practice. We create beautiful prints to enliven your daily flow and we work passionately to deliver yoga mats that out-perform your expectations.
Let's be honest, we love our corner of the planet, and we're super keen to nurture it. Our mats are manufactured from recycled tree rubber bonded to a super absorbent microfibre suede surface. Yin Yoga Mats are free from PVC, Silicone, and Phthalates, and best of all, we ship without plastic.
Our microfibre suede surface feels lush to practice on, and acts like a high performance sports towel, gripping with moisture. Basically, the more you sweat, the better you grip. For those of us who don't sweat (lucky you!) for the ultimate grip simply spray your mat (or hands and feet) with a little water prior to practice.
Care for your mat.
Caring for your mat is easy! Either wipe down post-practice, or pop straight into the washing machine.
