Yoga mats with a grip that is activated by the body heat

with Doreen Hing

Doreen Hing, the Founder & Creator of Plank, the only company that creates yoga mats with a grip that is activated by the body heat joins the show.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Doreen Hing discuss the following:

  • How did you get your start?
  • What is unique about a Plank Yoga Mat?
  • Your blog states yoga on a Plank Yoga Mats creates a "Ridiculous Body Awareness", what does that mean?
  • Who uses a Plank yoga mat typically or in general?
  • Would you recommend a PYM for me?


When Plank’s Founder, former shoe designer and full time fashionista, Doreen Hing, discovered the incredible benefits of yoga and how it positively affected other aspects of her life, she knew she had to share this fantastic sense of awareness and well-being with others the only way she knew how – through design.

Doreen set out to design a yoga mat in a style that reflected her attitude toward life and her unique sense of humor. She created four provocative, intriguing and conversation-starting designs including Plank’s Cobra Yoga Mat, Signature Plank Yoga Mat, Pills Yoga Mat, and Shag Yoga Mat.

While exploring the technology to imprint high-quality photo imagery onto the yoga mats, Doreen and the lab discovered the surface coating developed to protect the artwork had increased grip potential when body heat and pressure were applied.

Now, Plank develops and designs the only body heat activated grip yoga mat, a line of mat carriers, bags & purses for any yoga lifestyle, all the while promoting yoga as a vehicle for extraordinary well-being. We’re committed to creating yoga inspired products to enhance a person’s yoga experience visually, physically, physiologically and perhaps, thoughtfully too.

Inhale. Exhale. Enjoy. Plank.
