It's going to be complicated to explain it briefly, but here we go! Green Soul Yoga is a project that was born with the idea of enhancing four natural qualities of the human being. The full experience of them is possible when we allow ourselves to connect with nature, away from the hustle and bustle for a moment, in body and especially in soul.
The oriental tradition, acquired through observation and spirituality, recognised mainly four elements as the constituents of matter. Our philosophy associates these elements with the four qualities:
Pause, Earth Element. We clear our minds of future tasks and place ourselves in the present.
Freedom, Air Element. We recognise our independence and attend to our desires.
Wellness, Water Element. We feel our body and prioritise its care.
- Fortitude, Fire Element. We become aware of our achievements and the power to achieve them.
Through the practice of yoga and meditation we have found a wonderful way to develop these qualities.
In order to focus and enjoy and make the best out of each practice, we have always been very demanding with the material used, and we quickly realised that it was not easy to get the most suitable product. Not only in relation to the manufacturing material, but also to the combination of these materials with the necessary rigidity, density, dimensions and design, while preserving the maximum respect for the environment and sustainability.
Jumping from plane to plane, we have visited over 15 countries in the last 5 years in search of the highest quality materials, studied with a physical approach the optimal design and characteristics for each product, and checked that they contribute to reduce the environmental impact as much as possible.
We are so proud of our results and experiences that we want to share them with the world through Green Soul Yoga.
Who is behind it?
Hi! We’re Javier and Samuel, founders of Green Soul Yoga. Back in 2017 we decided to bring our background in engineering of materials into the purpose of the project.
This adventure would not make sense and would not have been possible without the collaboration of more than 15 people who have contributed as designers, testers, yoga and meditation teachers and students, and many more. Synergies with colleagues are always great!
Mission and method
Our mission is that every practice becomes a unique and liberating experience, where you can reach your unlimited potential, using optimal products designed for the practice of yoga and meditation. Promoting the use of environmentally friendly materials is our must!
To achieve this, we have analysed the properties of a large number of materials suitable for use in our products, with resources from two universities in Spain and the UK. Finally, we have designed an initial catalogue that meets our premises of maximum quality, design, sustainability and meaning.
More than 90% of the material we use in our products complies with the following Eco Indicators:
