Kulae Mission Statement
Kulae's mission is to provide eco-friendly yoga products in order to create a collaborative and inclusive community inspiring a healthy lifestyle. We know that everyone deserves to feel happy and healthy. Our planet does too. We wish to build a more positive world where yoga can truly be for everyone without taxing our planet. At Kulae, we are on a twofold mission to provide the most stylish and eco-friendly yoga gear on the planet while truly living by our mantra: #realgoodkarma
What it means: the name Kulae was derived from the Sanskrit word kula, which means “community.” Adding the letter "e" to the end of a word in Sanskrit pluralizes it like the letter "s" often does in English – essentially, we turned “community” into “communities.” We chose the name “Kulae” with our mission and mantra in mind: we want to help bring communities together through yoga and good karma, helping to maintain healthy people on a healthy planet.
Our mantra and logo
We believe that karma is real, and we want to create and propagate some real and really good karma -- or as Jeff, a Boston native, would summarily say: real good karma. But what do we mean by that? Karma gets a lot of bad press these days, being equated with revenge and comeuppance and other negative mindsets and intents. But when we talk about karma, we’re referring to its original Vedic context: the sum of a person’s actions. We believe that it is important to extend compassion, understanding, and goodwill to the planet and all of its inhabitants, wherever we are and regardless of the situation – and this includes to ourselves! This is the essence of creating and spreading real good karma, and is a habit the Kulae Crew strives to practice every single day.Our logo contains a mix of cultural influences, a mélange of symbolism that comes together to represent our brand and everything we aim to stand for. We call it the Kulaedoscope. Blue and green are the colors associated with our lovely planet, and its circular shape represents community, continuity, and dedication. But most importantly, the Kulae logo can mean whatever you want it to mean! It is open to your interpretation, so you can reflect your own values and (real good) karma onto our design.
I absolutely love this mat. My joints are a little bit boney, so thin mats on hard floors make for painful poses. This mat is beautiful - I love the colors. I love the way it grips too. It grips perfectly for me in standard (non-heated) yoga, and I use it with a mat towel for hot yoga. I haven't tried it without a towel. The generous cushion does make balance poses a bit more difficult. I wish they made one thick like this with the microfiber like the elite hot yoga mat. I'd snatch it up in a heartbeat for my hot classes. For now this will have to make due with a towel. - Jennifer
A perfect mat for home use or anywhere use! Lightweight, affordable, a slam dunk! - Yvonne V
