The World's First
Intelligent Yoga Mat
Ready to take your Yoga Practice
to the next level?
Since our Crowdfunding campaign at the end of 2014, SmartMat has pre-sold
to thousands of Yogis in over 50 countries around the world. Whether you're a total beginner or advanced Yogi, SmartMat will help you start, improve and refine your Yoga practice.
With smartmat you can
Part 1. SmartMat
Your rollable, portable Yoga mat that detects
your balance & alignment.
Part 2. The SmartMat App
Connects to your SmartMat via wireless Bluetooth to give you real-time audio & visual feedback on your yoga practice (works with both iOS and Android)
for EVERY level
If you're new to yoga SmartMat will help you get started... guiding you through the poses so you'll quickly pick up the basics. And don't worry about getting it "wrong". SmartMat will detect when you're doing a pose incorrectly and gently let you know how to adjust your body into the correct position.
Finally, an easier way to learn yoga!
If you're already an experienced Yogi, SmartMat is a way to refine your technique and pick up on the subtle imbalances in your pose that you may not have noticed, and the human eye can't detect.
Finally, a way to refine your Practice!
1 Mat - 3 Modes
Everyone likes to practice yoga in their own way. That's why SmartMat has 3 different modes you can choose from, so you can do whatever feels right for you that day...
So here's a cool fact: SmartMat can actually detect 62+ different yoga poses. This means that if you're a social creature, you can take your SmartMat to a yoga studio with you and follow your teacher's flow.
Simply pop some Bluetooth headphones into your ears if you want to hear your real-time feedback (so you don't disturb the class), or turn off the audio and follow the visual feedback on your personal screen. If you want to turn off your feedback completely, just switch your SmartMat into Zen Mode.
In Zen Mode, SmartMat silently tracks your yoga practice in the background without giving you real-time feedback but storing everything for you to check out later. This means after your class, you can hop into the SmartMat App to see how you did and which poses you need to pay extra attention to next time.
and Perfect Pose
Your SmartMat has over 21,000 sensors built into it, although you'd never guess while using it. They're embedded into an extremely thin film, meaning that you can't see or feel them. Because they're virtually invisible, they don't interfere with your practice at all.
They detect your balance, pressure and alignment in your hands and feet, then send this information via Bluetooth to the connected SmartMat App on your phone or tablet (iOS and Android).
No wires, no plugs, no awkward connections. Everything is wireless and effortlessly simple. This information then gets instantly processed through a complex algorithm (our secret sauce), taking into account a huge range of factors to ensure the feedback is tailored specifically to you and your current pose.
This is where the magic happens: unique to you real-time audio and visual feedback on how to improve your pose, just like you'd get from a personal yoga instructor.

Welcome to the SmartMat Marketplace, built into your App.
This comes standard with numerous free SmartClasses for you to practice Yoga at your level. From a beginners Morning Wake Up Flow or a gentle Yin Hip Openers class, to more advanced practices such as the Ashtanga Series, or Backbends and Spinal Twists, SmartMat has classes for all levels and needs of practice including some non-Yoga programs such as Tibetan Bowl Meditation and a few other surprises.
The good news is, there's so much variety! You'll never get bored with your SmartMat yoga practice... the SmartMat Marketplace is a dynamic and growing portal that yoga classes will be
consistently added to. Some of these will be free, and others will be available on a subscription model.
After the initial release, SmartMat will be inviting a number of recognized teachers to develop individual SmartMat sequences in their own art and style. We call them "Yogrammers," and in addition to laying out the SmartClass sequencing, they record the class visual, audio and corrections so it is like they are right there in the room with you.

SmartMat was described as the "stand-out product" of CES by both VentureBeat and WIRED, featured on BBC's popular technology show Click, as well as Fox News, CNBC, CNN and international TV stations.
And we're honored to be appearing in so many Awards lists! SmartMat has been nominated as a Finalist in the ShinyShiny Awards 2014 and the Bluetooth Innovation Awards 2015, to name just two...

We're an international team of fitness-technology professionals dedicated to making the world a healthier, happier and more flexible place.
We consider ourselves Yogis first and foremost who just happen to be engineers and entrepreneurs. Let's introduce you to the core team...
When we set out to manifest SmartMat into reality, we understood that it would be a delicate dance between tradition and technology. We wanted to correctly honor the art of Yoga and Asana in a way that brings people closer to their bodies, maintaining the ancient teachings and intentions while being practical about alignment and balance within the practice.
First was the Hardware technology. We went through numerous prototypes and sensing technologies to find a solution that was not only durable and cost effective, but also had to be able to roll up like a traditional Yoga mat.
SmartMat technology uses a 4 ply methodology that still permits a remarkably low profile.
On the software end, we spent thousands of combined hours laying out the poses with ideal recommenda- tions for alignment and balance, adjusting for individual body types, calibrating recommendations and then making it beautiful to the eye so it can all process and display on your phone or tablet screen.
The result is a final product that we can be proud of as both entrepreneurs and as practicing Yogis staying true to the tradition.
All of us in the Core Team consider ourselves to be SmartMat's first customers. We're building this because as practicing Yogis of different levels, we believe that this will change our lives for the better.
We wanted a solution to our own problem - finding a way to fit personalized yoga tuition into our hectic schedules - as well as to be able to help other people around the world to transform their own lives by starting or improving their own yoga practice.
Since launching our crowdfunding campaign in September 2014, we've been honored to have thousands of people join us in our mission to bring intelligent yoga into the home and studio. Together we're changing lives, one SmartMat at a time.
If SmartMat helps more people do more yoga by removing the barriers to getting started or practicing on a regular basis, the world will be a happier and more vibrant place!
