Sherman Oaks, CA, June 23, 2015 – KneeQi, LLC, a California-based company intends to take the yoga market by storm with its innovative new yoga knee pad. KneeQi™, which contains the Chinese word “Qi” (pronounced “Chi”), meaning “energy flow,” is designed to solve the problem of knee pain during yoga practice. “While I love to practice yoga, my knees hurt every time I put them directly on my yoga mat,” says Netta Grutman, the founder of KneeQi, LLC. To solve this problem, Grutman developed a light weight, eco-friendly knee pad which cushions yogis’ knees during yoga practice.
“It feels like your knees are floating on butter, if butter was vegan,” beams Grutman. The knee pad is made of vegan-friendly and BPA-free Nitrile Rubber (NBR).
The KneeQi™ knee pad not only allows yogis to practice yoga in a more comfortable way, but it also solves another distracting problem. “No more folding over your regular yoga mat or fidgeting with your blanket to cushion your knees in the middle of your flow,” says Grutman. The KneeQi™ pad is designed to fit perfectly on a standard size yoga mat and to be left on the mat for the entirety of the practice. “Once your practice is done, you can just roll your KneeQi™ pad directly into your yoga mat until your next practice,” says Grutman.
After evaluating and assessing many materials, Grutman decided on the extremely plush and flexible NBR. “The quality of the knee pad material is superb, there is nothing like it out there,” says Grutman. In addition to being comfortable and convenient, the KneeQi™ pad is also 100% recyclable and eco-friendly. “I wanted to make sure the knee pad was environmentally friendly and attractive to even the most sensitive users, such as pregnant women,” says Grutman.
Online sales of the KneeQi™ pad have already begun, and the company plans to officially launch its product during the upcoming Yoga Journal LIVE! event at the Hotel Del Coronado, in San Diego, California, from June 25 to June 29, 2015. Event coordinators anticipate over 1,600 yogis in attendance, including yoga teachers and studio owners.
According to Grutman, the KneeQi™ pad is an exciting entry into the $10.3 billion yoga industry. “People come up to me and say they thought they were the only ones suffering with knee pain during yoga. I wonder how many of the other 20 million yogis out there feel the same? ”With the launching of this new product, KneeQi, LLC, intends to help yoga enthusiasts of all skill levels chant “ommmm, and not owwww” during their yoga practice.
