Corc Yoga is committed to providing the most natural products to wellness enthusiasts around the world while supporting sustainable practices, fair wages, and a clean environment. Corc Yoga mats are one of the only mats on the market without latex, rubber or plastic. With their dedication to sustainability, they do their best to make sure their manufacturers responsibly source the highest quality cork on the planet from the forests of Portugal.
Christine Moghadam established Corc Yoga in California. While traveling in the cork region of Portugal, Christine was inspired by the eco qualities of the native cork tree and the cork farmers’ commitment to sustainable and ethical business practices. This is at the heart of the Corc Yoga brand, bringing together an emphasis on travel, self-care and community.
Corc Yoga’s Renew Mat remains the most intimate way to elevate your yoga experience. While using this mat, you “ground” your practice by standing on the bark of a cork tree.
We practice yoga as a way to promote a sound mind, healthy body and better connection to our world. Corc Yoga mats will help you build a more meaningful relationship between your mind, body and environment with their sustainable cork material. The mats are made from organic cork harvested from trees in Portugal. No trees are cut down in the process, making them a 100% recyclable, renewable and biodegradable source.
Other benefits include a non-slip grip thanks to its honeycomb structure and antimicrobial and hypoallergenic properties. Unlike traditional rubber yoga mats which can contain heavy metals or harsh hormone-disrupting chemicals like PVC, Corc Yoga mats are both hormone and chemical-free.
Corc Yoga not only inspires positive mental, physical and environmental change, it supports a greater world connection by giving a percentage of every purchase to youth mental health organizations in Portugal who are working to solve a mental health crisis within the country.
