Warmest welcome to learn more about Azana Yoga Brand.
Chaos isn’t a word we normally associate with yoga. But out of chaos, Azana’s unique yoga mat designs were born.
Headquartered in Portugal, Azana sought to find design inspiration in the vibrant city streets of Lisbon. Lisbon’s famous Azulejos, the colorful art that decorates the streets of the city, serve as a foundation for Azana’s designs. With the noisy world quickly passing behind you while you quietly observe the stunning Azulejos artwork, you find yourself sinking into a peaceful serenity despite the world around you. This experience mimics our everyday life and serves as the perfect metaphor for the self centering while doing yoga.
That’s why we’ve created the elegantly urban designs that grace our yoga mats. The designs represent our ability to rise above the noise of everyday life and be present in time and place. We invite you to find your balance in the everyday flow of life with Azana.
Our durable and high-quality yoga mats are made of sustainable materials not only because it’s the eco-conscious thing to do, but because we believe using natural materials helps bring us all into balance. No matter where you find yourself, when you roll out your Azana cork yoga mat, you can embrace and connect with nature’s serenity..
Our mats are constructed from cork and natural rubber, the two are put together with high pressure and heat, so there is no additional chemicals added.Cork has an important role to Azana’s do-no-harm mission, but it also has big role in Portuguese identity and heritage. No cork trees are cut down in the harvesting of our cork. The cork is peeled off from the outer layers of the cork trees in strict compliance with Portugal’s governmental cork regulations. These regulations state that in order for cork trees to be harvested, they must be at least 25 years old, and a tree can be harvested only once every 9 years. And with proper harvesting, a cork tree can live and thrive for an average of 200 years.The correct harvesting requires specific skills, that are passed on from generation to next.
The Vietnamese rubber we use comes from a tree too and stays unharmed. unlike cork, it’s a liquid, Latex specifically, that is harvested by tapping from the rubber tree. The natural rubber requires some processing to achieve the final form, natural rubber.
