New York Times

“No more finding yourself cockeyed on the mat during downward dog. Inventor Annie Appleby, added a center line and three horizontal lines to align herself, and it kept me straight every time…”

– Roy M. Wallack Los Angeles Times


Let #YogaForce be your guide to #SimpleAlignment

Welcome to the ultimate online destination for yoga mats and yoga accessories.

The highly acclaimed YogaForce mat features a superior grip and a grid for alignment awareness. It is simply the best yoga mat you will ever use.  The YogaForce A-Line is practical, fashion-forward and elegant — thick enough to provide a cushion for your knees and wrists, eye-catching enough to turn heads. With rave reviews in The Los Angeles Times, Time Magazine and The New York Times, the YogaForce brand is a media darling.

Celebrities who have endorsed YogaForce are Jessica Simpson, Kelly Ripa, Tobey Maguire and Jessica Biel, all of whom signed mats to raise money for Skin Cancer Awareness. Our mats have been found in the offices of Google, Oracle and Facebook, as well as the best spas in the world, ranging from Meadowood to The Chopra Center, select Ritz-Carlton Hotels and even the White House. Remember…grip and grid. Now get your chakras on, use YogaForce and transcend.

Spring, 2024 – Annie grew up in retail. Her parents met at the iconic Macy’s Union Square store in San Francisco. Listen here to her story among others featured on FORUM, the hit Podcast from KQED (NPR/PBS). More cool tidbits can be found on Annie’s World Blog. MACY’S AND ME | Yogaforce


In the Summer of 2023, Annie talks about growing up in Hillsborough, California, and getting a patent for the YogaForce A-Line Mat. 

Check out my interview:

Annie talks about being a pioneer in the yoga industry in 1995.  She started off teaching yoga to VCs, CEOs, Celebs, Athletes, and stressed-out teenagers.  Her colorful active clothes were carried in Fred Segal, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’sMacy’s  and hundreds of spas and boutiques throughout the United States.  Her line also appeared on several TV and Motion Pictures including, Sex And The City, Dharma and Greg, Everybody Loves Raymond, True Lies, Save The Last Dance, and Beautiful. After a car accident on her way to a yoga class at the Paramount Pictures lot, it became necessary to get in alignment.  This led to the creation of the YogaForce A-Line Mat in 2005.  Kim Kardashian bought one of the first mats at Kitson in Beverly Hills and used it to work out with her trainer on E! Entertainment Television. The YogaForce A-Line mats have been sold all over the world including every door of The Sharper Image, The Chopra Center, The White House, Spas and Hotels like The Ritz Carlton and at wold-class hospitals.  Annie and her dog Madison created DogaByYogaForce® which has been featured on Telemundo, NBC, ABC, and Nat Geo. Annie has taught yoga at the YMCA, Google, Oracle and privately all over the world.

In January 2023, Annie Appleby was invited to Hawaii to see Bill Maher and teach yoga to humans and their animals.
