Dhyana Yoga Boutique was co-created by two partners who wanted to start a socially conscious business focused on yoga practice. Our mats are biodegradable and are free of toxic dyes and substances, making them earth friendly and body kind. The Dhyana Signature mat is 5 mm thick with unparalleled grip, giving access to all yoga or fitness formats without sacrificing performance.
At Dhyana Yoga Boutique, we aren’t just focusing on yoga in the stereotypical sense of flexibility. The word Dhyana translates to “meditation.” Yoga in itself, is moving meditation and practice begins with tuning in to your true self. At Dhyana, we want to facilitate one’s connection to their higher self, and their community. We are all connected, we are all one.
