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 sweat. A LOT. I'm not talking hot yoga. I'm talking regular old, at home, non-temperature dependent yoga. Imagine then, the amount of sweat I put out in a heated class, multiply it, and the Elite Hot Hybrid STILL keeps my down dog from slipping away. The fact that I can throw it in the washer after a particularly sweaty session makes me a happy yogini - Kacey Neckowitz
Loved my Kulae mat! So lightweight yet supportive and comfortable. The only problem I ever had with it, was it got holes in it after using it in an outdoor yoga practice - any little rock, tree root punctured it. So would not recommend in that environment but it was the best all around mat I ever had! - Maria
