In Sanskrit, “yoga” means “to yoke” and is often translated in English as “union” or “connection.” To many, yoga is the union of Mind, Body, and Spirit. Spiritual Revolution is the union of Eco-friendly Yoga Mats, Art, and Philanthropic Causes to raise energetic frequency during asana practice and meditation. Spiritual Revolution’s artwork is carefully selected from the most talented famous and aspiring artists and designers who are in alignment with Spiritual Revolution’s goals.
Spiritual Revolution and its artists give back to the community by partnering with non-profit organizations, cleaning up the environment from toxic plastic pollution, and spreading the healing benefits of yoga to all. This is our Earth. We only get one. This is your body. You only get one. We get to write the history of how we treat and respect each. But we must be educated first. Knowledge is the greatest power for change. Yoga and meditation have been proven time and again to be some of the best tools for health, emotional balance, stress management, trauma and PTSD management, healing, and recovery.
We Use The Smartest Technology
Spiritual Revolution’s yoga mats are the greatest tool to aid you in your journey to optimal health, happiness, success, and peace. The artwork is created to raise your vibrational frequency. Our proprietary design provides the best grip so you can focus on your practice (and not on slipping). Our micro cloth towel top sticks to your hands and feet when they begin to sweat. It is soft when moving into half pigeon, upward dog, or hero, and simultaneously provides the grip you need when moving into other asanas. This amazing reverse grip technology kicks in when the micro cloth gets wet! Unlike other mats that begin to slip as you sweat, our mat begins to grip. No more trying to lay a towel on top of your mat any more–ours comes built right in. If you don’t have a sweaty practice, gently spray the mat with water and the technology kicks in the same way as if you were sweating.
Our Mats Are Eco-Friendly
Importantly, our mats are eco-friendly. Any mat you buy from Spiritual Revolution has a natural tree rubber base that is bonded to our micro cloth towel top made from recycled water bottles. We use water-based inks for all of our art work, which is placed onto the mat through ink sublimation, so it will not rub off and it will not fade. Any plastic wrapping used by Spiritual Revolution is 100% biodegradable. Moreover, Spiritual Revolution’s mats are PVC free. PVC cannot be recycled, is non-biodegradable, and is full of toxic chemicals that are bad for your health. Because Spiritual Revolution’s mats have no toxic chemicals, there is NO NASTY SMELL when you practice on your mat. In addition, our micro cloth top is quite durable, meaning it will not degrade if left out in the sun or a hot car on occasion. Our mats are the perfect mixture of durability and eco-friendly!
Our Mats Are Machine Washable
As if that weren’t enough, our mats are are also fully machine washable and come with an embroidered carrying strap. Machine-wash alone with detergent (NO BLEACH) on gentle cycle in cold water. To speed up drying, wrap mat in a towel and squeeze out excess water. Hang to dry (DO NOT PUT IN DRYER). If you are not machine washing your mat, just wipe it down after class with a wet cloth and let it air dry. You may also wipe it down with a gentle soap or detergent and water mixture with a cloth and then air dry. It is not recommended that you use any type of oil on your mat to clean it.
What Our Customers Are Saying
Drew Brophy has been a professional artist for over 25 years. An avid big wave surfer,Drew realized at a young age that selling his art would enable him to surf the best waves on the planet. In the late 1990’s Drew began painting his edgy artwork onto surfboards. He shared his unique painting techniques as he traveled the world and became known as the artist who changed the way surfboards were painted forever. Drew’s fine art surfboards are now enjoyed by collectors worldwide and his paintings are printed on hundreds of products and fine art prints. An early adopter of standup paddle surfing, Drew helped spread the sport through his adventure travels. He and whitewater expert Seth Warren were the first to standup paddle the entire 225 miles of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. Drew’s love of surfing has led him down a path of studying weather, its effect on waves, and how the sun influences earth. This has all led to a deep interest in physics and how it all interconnects. Drew has studied physics extensively and it has influenced his artwork. As such, his distinctive art style has evolved to include sacred geometry in an effort to decode the knowledge that ancient civilizations left for us. Drew wants to share with the world the message that everything is energy and we are all connected. He strives to create art images that help people understand the true meaning of life; that life is meant to be enjoyed. Spiritual Revolution is so excited to have Drew bring his bright, colorful, and distinctive style of surf and sacred geometry paintings to the yoga mat.

Pam Longobardi’s parents, an ocean lifeguard and Delaware state diving champion, connected her from an early age to the ocean. She moved to Atlanta in 1970 and saw her neighborhood pond drained to build the high school she attended. Since then, she lived for varying time periods in Wyoming, Montana, California, and Tennessee, and worked as a firefighter, tree planter, scientific illustrator, aerial mapmaker, waitress, bartender, collaborative printer and a color mixer. Her artwork involves painting, photography, and installation and addresses the psychological relationship of humans to the natural world. Her art has been shown extensively across the US and internationally, and in 2006, she founded the Drifters Project, an international collaborative artistic research project focusing on ocean plastic pollution. In 2013, she won the prestigious Hudgens Prize, and has an ongoing collaboration supported by the Ionion Center for Art and Culture in Kefalonia, Greece. As lead artist on GYRE expedition, she was featured in the National Geographic film “GYRE: Creating Art From a Plastic Ocean” and in National Geographic magazine. Her artwork ranges from paintings to photographs to sculptures to large-scale installations and public art. In 2014, Longobardi was awarded the title of Distinguished University Professor at Georgia State University, and has been named Oceanic Society’s Artist-In-Residence. Her artwork was recently featured on the cover of SIERRA magazine, on the Weather Channel and is held in numerous private and public collections. She will exhibit the long-term project on Kefalonia at the Goulandris Museum of Natural History in Athens, Greece from May to November 2015.
Funds from the sale of Longobardi’s Soaring Albatrosses yoga mat are donated to support Oceanic Society’s, www.oceanicsociety.org, “Adopt an Albatross Program,” which directly fund plastic mitigation, outreach, education and research on albatross populations on Midway Atoll. These birds live and nest on remote Hawaiian Islands, and parent birds fly as far north as the Arctic Circle to collect food—directly over the North Pacific Gyre, where billions of pieces of plastic now collect. Mistaking plastic objects as food, the parents eat them and feed them to their chicks, killing as many as half of all fledgling chicks. Longobardi has teamed up with Spiritual Revolution, donating her time and artwork, to encourage behavioral change to reduce plastic consumption. To learn more about Longobardi, her art, research, and activism, and other amazing things she is doing for the Earth and its inhabitants, please visit www.driftersproject.net
Dore’ Vorum is a photographer, whose art has evolved into the abstract. She uses long exposures and a swiping motion to capture the colors, shapes, forms and textures she sees around her, all of which encapsulate her personal geographical and spiritual journey. Dore’ is well-known for creating in-camera images that are no longer recognizable in the real world. She makes Impressionist Photography through the use of minor adjustments while staying as close to the original image as possible, always intent on feeling and capturing the essence of the scene before her. While Spiritual Revolution has offered some of her images for inspirational practice, additional images by Dore’ are available at www.dorevorum.photography
Nancy Marcus Newman is a visionary portrait artist, painter and muralist who creates in a variety of media including encaustic, oil, watercolor, and digital imaging. Her work contains an element of the natural forces of the Universe at play in creating beauty in everyday Moments, and seeks to capture positive energy in a visual context of two dimensions. While a variety of materials and processes are used in each project, her methodology is consistent. The multilayered creative process is unique for each image and cannot be replicated. The Work evolves from captured Moments, examined, taken apart, and rearranged. The subject matter of each body of work comes from a personal experience of empowerment through connection with Self, Others, Nature, Love, and a Higher Power. Nancy’s studio is located in Newtown Square, PA, in the suburbs of Philadelphia. For more about Nancy’s work, please visit: www.nancymarcusnewman.
