THE CORC YOGA STORY
WE CARE ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT
- We are adventurers at heart and when we discovered how beautiful Portugal is, we immediately fell in love with the people and were compelled to start a business where we could give back to them. While we were there, we learned Portugal’s forests produce half of the world’s supply of cork and there are many amazing products that can be made from cork. We found a 3rd generation Cork expert to partner with to develop an environmentally friendly, organic yoga mat. Our hope is to allow the adventurer in you the ability to practice yoga wherever you are.
- Portugal boasts an impressive industry, designed to protect the integrity of the environment. Under Portuguese law, Cork trees have their bark shaved only every 9 years, allowing the trees to naturally regenerate their bark. This natural process keeps the trees healthy allowing them to live up to 200 years.
EXPERTS IN THE CORK INDUSTRY
- Portugal’s cork production creates a significantly positive effect on the country’s largest export and steady income. The cork industry provides as many as 20,000 well-paying seasonal jobs throughout 500+ cork production factories each year, despite an otherwise slow moving economy and higher than average unemployment rates. Here at Corc Yoga, we are proud to be partnering with a factory that has been in the cork industry for the past 100 years.
CORC YOGA CARE - A PORTION OF EVERY SALE IS DONATED.
- They are on a mission to give back. A portion of every sale will be donated to support the mental health crisis locally and abroad in Portugal. We believe in the strong connection between your physical and mental health.
SUPPORTING MENTAL HEALTH
- As any yogi will attest to, the effects of yoga reach beyond just the physical practice, impacting every facet of our lives from our mental wellbeing to the way we interact with the world. That’s why we also give a percentage of every purchase to youth mental health organizations in Portugal.
OUR DEDICATION TO COMMUNITY
- It started with a yoga mat, and now our lineup includes a yoga block, a mat sling, and even a backpack. As Corc Yoga has grown, so has our commitment to the community. Being able to offer an eco-friendly product to the yoga and wellness community is reward enough itself, but in addition to that, we also give a percentage of every purchase back to the community that started it all and support youth mental health organizations in Portugal.
