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.
This is a great mat if your hands do not sweat during yoga. If you take Hot Yoga classes, invest in a good towel or mat towel. I have ordered one and once I use it with this mat I will update my review.
Some pros of the mat are: great calming colors, a little 'spongy' padding for those with bad knees, this really helps with low runner lunge etc..., reversable- there is just something about being able to flip it over and have a brand new mat between classes that I like. - Henniet
I borrowed this mat from my boyfriend because I didn't want to use the ones rented by the studio, which feel rough insubstantial. What a pleasant surprise! I had never heard of this company, but this mat was comfortable, had good traction and some nice give to it. My boyfriend has had this mat for a few years and it still looks great. High quality and very durable. I couldn't wait to get my own! - AJ
