We Care About Your Health & Our Environment! Maji Sports, based in Los Angeles, CA, was founded by Giovanni Villa, a long-time fitness enthusiast, chef, personal trainer and certified yoga instructor; and Bemnet Kibreab, a former Wall Street professional and avid yoga practitioner. Watching people struggle with support & balance in their yoga class, they wanted to make sure people get proper cushioning and support during their yoga sessions. This drove Giovanni & Bemnet to design a yoga & exercise mat with targeted contours with extra cushioning and support for your knees and wrists. This cutting edge mat would become known as the Happy Knees mat. When we released the first version of the mat back in 2012 it weighted 7lbs. We decided to pull the mat from the market and go back to the drawing board. After nearly eight years of development, we will finally be releasing the mat in Q4 of 2020.
