ilāSTRATE™ Yoga Mat Design Co. was born of the belief that art strongly influences our psychological well being. We are generally not aware of this connection.

Art, the great communicator, touches our spirit and influences our emotions, inspiring thought, sparking our imagination and motivating us into action. The ability to think creatively and use our imagination diminishes with age or may be taken for granted.

At iláStrate™, we believe that imagination is the KEY to unlocking true connection to the higher self, accessing source intelligence and awakening the soul. Surrounding ourselves with inspiration and creativity keeps the imagination alive and inspires action, allowing us to flow in sync with our true soul purpose.Utilizing art as a tool to enhance yoga, meditation and mindfulness practice as a lifestyle, we embody our full mind-body-spirit potentiality.

OUR MISSION: Inspire movement to self realization through creative expression.
