No matter how many times he packed up his conventional yoga mat, Aaron Thornton couldn’t accept the process. He could never roll it tight enough, and then there was the added need for straps or bags to keep the bundle together. But one day, it hit him: The slap bracelet. What if you could make a yoga mat that easily curled into a compact, transportable cylinder? After many trial and error attempts, a little help from his design friends, several engineers, and real-life testing, he was successful. Now, the post-yoga routine is a simple snap, roll, and bundle that takes a fraction of the time.
