Cork yoga mat outdoors

About Us

2nd Wind Health & Wellness was born out of a desire to help people stay fit and do what they love for longer periods of time. After suffering a snowboard injury, owner Vince, a veteran and now yoga instructor, discovered the need for eco-friendly, non-toxic yoga mats that perform well in different styles of classes. He realized that many mats on the market were made from toxic materials and would take thousands of years to break down in regular landfill conditions. This led him to design his own line of high-performance yoga mats made from sustainable materials, each with a unique focus to accommodate different styles of practice.

The first mat in the lineup was made of cork, which quickly gained recognition and was ranked 2nd best overall by world-class instructors in its first year, surpassing some multi-million dollar companies. Over time, Vince introduced more mats to the lineup, all of which are eco-friendly, non-toxic, and have a traceable impact in sustainability. With the belief that yoga can be used as a springboard to help people do what they love longer, 2nd Wind Health & Wellness strives to empower its customers to live their best lives with confidence and sustainability. The company is proud to be a small part of each customer's practice and aims to be a company that customers can be proud to support.
