The first of their kind, Grippz Mats are designed to release power blockages, relieve muscle mass tension, and enhance blood circulation during practice.

Katrina Starzhynskaya, a San Diego-based yogi and acupuncturist, married her 2 interests in Grippz Mats, the globe’s first acupressure yoga mat. Now you’ll never have to pick in between acupressure as well as your practice again. That might have been the motivation for the Kickstarter advocates that funded her task well over the goal last week with over $80,000 in backing.

Acupressure is an ancient eastern recovery art that utilizes finger pressure on vital recovery points. The mats’ ergonomically made “knobs” trigger factors on your hands and feet as you practice to release energy clogs, reduce muscular tissue tension, and improve blood flow, along with providing additional grasp, Starzhynskaya says.

The Specs

These green non-toxic mats feature a durable, waterproof closed-cell style that will not absorb sweat or smells. At 6 feet long and 2 feet broad, it is somewhat larger than a lot of floor coverings. As well as Starzhynskaya claims their extra hold negates the demand for a yoga exercise towel throughout warmed practices.

How to Get an Acupressure Yoga Mat

Starzhynskaya has released an Indigogo campaign to offer yogis an additional possibility to get this one-of-a-kind mat. The retail price when it hits racks? $89 (affordable with leading yoga mat brands). Grippz Mats prepares for very first shipments as quickly as June 2017.
