MARI Design is a brand that came into existence when founder Maisie was in my final year at university and also recovering from some health issues. Through her struggles to stay healthy and happy she found yoga. She’ll find herself doing her university work whilst stretching on her yoga mat, which enabled her to remain calm whilst reigniting her passion for art and colour therapy.

There are a few designs you can choose from, like the Sattva Yoga Mat inspired by the flow of water, the nature and freedom of it, and the movement and energy it creates. Forest Flow, was inspired by the healing energies of the natural world in Mallorca, the green representing the color of the Heart Chakra and of love so by flowing on a mat covered in so much green you are opening yourself for deeper love, compassion, growth, and transformation The blue connects you to the divine, blue energy is healing and calming, it helps you to communicate with clarity and express yourself authentically.
