MYST was born during the pandemic, when Jess was stuck alone in her apartment. With so many pleasures (coffee with friends, hugs from family, getting lost in a crowd…) off-limits, she found that the little things we do to enrich our daily lives actually provide a critical boost to mood, performance, and wellbeing.
Yoga turned from a hobby into a necessity, a way to stay sane. That daily session on the mat was respite from the anxiety, boredom, and sense of stasis outside.
Jess started experimenting with aromatherapy, adding a deeper dimension of relaxation and meditation to her practice, and the idea for MYST was born:
What if your yoga mat wasn’t ‘just’ a mat? Could your mat provide an integrated sensory experience to transform your practice.
Welcome to the answer to that question, the culmination of Jess’s vision, thousands of hours of research, contemplation, and prototyping.
This approach has given us so much, and we can’t wait to share it with you.
