Sarah Chambers is the founder of Hugger Mugger™. She was an accomplished woodworker when she discovered Yoga. The sport's tremendous impact of her health made Yoga a way of life for Sarah. She began developing wooden and fabric tools to help with her practice in 1986.
She began developing products for fellow yogis, including the company's namesake, Hugger Muggers. She developed apparel meant to conceal and comfort. Since the word "hugger-mugger" means "to conceal" the catchy name, Hugger Mugger fit.
Among Hugger Mugger's most notable designs is the Tapas Sticky Mat. Predecessor mats were not designed specifically for Yoga and would deteriorate quickly with use. The Tapas Sticky Mat was the first long-term performance yoga mat and continues to set the standards for the industry. For more than 25 years, Hugger Mugger has been known as an innovator of technically advanced yoga products serving yoga teachers and students throughout the world. For every online sale, Hugger Mugger gives back by donating a percentage of the profit to a different organization each quarter.

For taller ,older and somewhat less flexible yoga devotees, these blocks provide great support and can really help you have confidence in trying various positions that were not easily available before.

I just used these at the studio and came home and bought 2! We used them on the rope wall for a supported downward dog and I have never felt so stable and confident; I was really able to get into the pose. We also used them for a supported pigeon against a ledge. I'm a bit short and my teacher had me stand on one of these. I was a bit wary because it is foam, but I can tell you that at 200lbs, this block was SOLID even standing on one leg. Again, my worries and anxiety released and I was able to dig into the pose. In sitting meditation I was finally able to find a hero pose without pain (no lotus for these hips) as my knees found a proper height and my sit bones had plenty of room. For those who struggle with flexibility or injuries, this is worth every penny! No wobble, no squish, no lean. They feel great! This is one beast of a block that I can't wait to incorporate into my restorative and active practices!
