How We Got Here

In 1998 & 1997, respectively, Blake Beltram and Peter Sterios each started scrappy companies... companies that would eventually blossom and change the landscape of the yoga industry forever.  Blake bought a $64 "How To" programming book and started making software for yoga & fitness studios.  Peter took underlayment for astro-turf, cut it into six-foot rectangles, branded it, and changed the way the world looked at yoga mats.

With Mindbody and Manduka now in the rear view mirror, synchronicity and vision have inspired the guys who brought modern technology and modern yoga mats to the industry... to join forces to bring a much-needed yoga mat technology to the world.

Blake and Peter are leveraging a time-tested machine, invented and marketed by John Burnaby (Matsana) in 2009 and "discovered" by Derek Spurlock in 2016 when he was looking for a unique birthday present for his avid yogini wife, Melissa (pictured w/Derek).

Our company tagline - We spread light - is also our primary core value, in that our mission is to help the industry we love to rebound, and to do good things for, and give back to, our community.
