  • How to Choose Yoga Flooring For Your Studio

    Yoga Bar.How to Choose Yoga Flooring For Your Studio

    By Heidi Sonju

    When opening a yoga studio, the process is daunting. There are so many options – from location, paint colors, lighting, hiring teachers and so on. However, choosing a yoga surface may be the most important decision you make.

    Proper yoga flooring is an essential component to a positive experience. As an owner, there are multiple factors you need to consider such as comfort, cost, durability and the type of practice your studio will promote when choosing your flooring. This helpful guide will ensure you end up with the surface that fits your practice, values and budget.

    Safety

    When choosing a floor, safety should be your main concern. Yoga is practiced directly on the floor and should be free of all odors, nails and other defects.

    More often than not, studios install flooring not designed for yoga use, such as carpet or wood. This leads to a variety of safety problems, including unstable and slippery footing, abrasiveness and minimal shock absorption. Not to mention the odor you will have with carpet and the splitting of the hardwood floors from extreme use, moisture and heat.

    Proper flooring provides your clients enough space to move freely on a slip-resistant platform to ensure stability in more advanced poses. Dollamur Sport Surfaces (Dollamur) has applied these ideas to its new yoga flooring system. The easy-to-install, wall-to-wall surface maximizes studio space with an anti-skid layer to ensure clients’ hands and inversions do not falter.

    Dollamur yoga flooring is available in ½”, ¾” and 1” thickness to create a superior shock-absorbing platform useful for clients trying inversions or older clients with joint issues, yet photo 1meets the aesthetics need for hardwood.

    Sanitary and Cleaning Considerations

    Your yoga floor should be chosen with cleaning and sanitary considerations in mind. Having a surface not easily and thoroughly cleaned can result in a multitude of problems. Such issues include mold, fungi, odor and increased possibilities of contracting STAPH infections.

    The floor should not absorb water nor stay wet for long periods of time. Look for a surface that allows for evaporation and features anti-microbial properties. Finally, be sure your flooring does not release particles, filaments or harmful outgases. The goal should be to provide a dust-free, less toxic and hypoallergenic yoga practicing environment.

    Style of Practice

    If you practice Bikram or hot yoga, you need a floor that can withstand the heat nor expand or contract with higher temperatures. Also, make sure your flooring system will not separate in the heat, which can cause bubbling and cracking on the yoga mat surface.

    Durability

    When choosing a flooring system, the largest deciding factor – other than general cost – is value. Are you getting what you paid for? Is the surface environmentally-friendly? Does it have a special design or surface texture? Does it come with a limited product warranty? It is important to get answers to these questions before moving forward.studio

    Time to Shop

    Knowing what you are looking for in yoga flooring is very important. This guide is designed to point you in the right direction and help find the perfect surface for your practice, priorities, lifestyle, values and budget.

    Happy shopping and, as always, “Namaste.”

  • Dave Miller's role in 'Foxcatcher' is multi-dimensional

    Foxcatcher has been celebrated as one of the great movies of 2014. See how our Wrestling head, Dave Miller contributed to the film and see those Dollamur mats!

    Dave Miller's role in 'Foxcatcher' is multi-dimensional

    12/15/2014
    Mark Palmer, InterMat Senior Writer
    mark@intermatwrestle.com, Twitter: @MatWriter

    To say Dave Miller is involved in the movie "Foxcatcher" is an understatement.

    His company, Dollamur, participated in the filming of the story of gold-medal-winning wrestlers Mark and Dave Schultz and their involvement at the Foxcatcher Farms training facility owned by multi-millionaire John du Pont by providing singlets and warm-ups used in the movie. What's more, Miller himself has a role in the film, essentially playing himself as the then-executive director of USA Wrestling, negotiating with du Pont.

    Dollamur supplied custom mats for "Foxcatcher"

    From the perspectives as a supplier and actor, Miller is able to provide a behind-the-scenes look into the making of "Foxcatcher" which debuted in a total of six theaters in New York City and Los Angeles on November 14, and is slowly being rolled out in selected cities week-by-week for the next couple months ... a strategy often employed by studios that believe that a particular film could receive Oscar nominations. In the case of "Foxcatcher", that is not a far-fetched possibility. As of this writing, most reviews have been very positive, with speculation that principal actors Channing Tatum (who plays Mark Schultz), Mark Ruffalo (Dave Schultz) and Steve Carell (John du Pont) are in the running for best actor nominations, along with possible best director honors for Bennett Miller, and even possible consideration for best picture.
