World's first-ever training surface specifically designed for barefoot training.

Internationally-recognized Human Movement Specialist and Podiatrist Dr. Emily Splichal and Naboso Technology announce the launch of the world's first-ever barefoot training surface backed by science and research. Naboso Technology brings innovation to surface science with products that are designed to stimulate the small nerve proprioceptors in the bottom of the feet and palms of the hands. The first product integrating Naboso Technology is the Naboso Yoga Mat which is uniquely constructed to increase balance, neuro-feedback and postural stability.

Numerous research studies have demonstrated that the material used in current yoga mats actually de-activates and blocks the proprioceptors in the feet and hands. Dr.Splichal also found that as soon as patients activated their nervous system, they would then train on surfaces that would immediately de-activate the feet and nervous system again. This translates to decreased stability and neuro-feedback during yoga exercises.

The Naboso (meaning "barefoot" in Czech) Yoga Mat addresses these concerns and more as the enhanced grip makes this the perfect mat for yoga poses and floor exercises that require increased balance and stability. The patent pending material of Naboso Technology was developed using a three-step process that decreases sway and features unique stimuli that the hands and feet respond to. The material creates resistance which increases strength, is non-irritating to skin and allows users to stay grounded.

Measuring 72" x 24" x 5mm and weighing 4 lbs, the Naboso Yoga Mat matches the standard length and size of competitor mats. The mat is designed to be lightweight and travel-friendly enabling you to bring your ideal barefoot training surface with you. The Naboso Yoga Mat retails for $110 and is available at
