After years of hack DIY attempts to find an easy way to carry a yoga mat on a bike, including a couple of rather dangerous attempts. One of which included strapping my mat to the handlebars which blocked access to the brakes...!
I realised there was a real need for a solution to the problem. This is it.
Each version of the strap has been tested by yoga teachers and practitioners. Who have helped to simplify the design to what you see today.

One strap - Three ways
Loop the Loop
Perfect for the adventurers with things to carry.
Over the Shoulder
Perfect for the studio yogi.
Ready to Ride
Perfect for the cyclists who like to travel light.
How it works
The patented wooden lock pulls the strap against itself to close and uses the notch to lock into place (hence the name ;)) holding it around your mat for carrying. The lock can be removed and added as needed for Yin stretches.
Loop the Loop
Use the Feelix Yoga Strap to attach your mat to the outside of a backpack without compromising on space inside the pack!
The mat sits vertically, ensuring the weight is evenly distributed, making it easy to carry.
Once in place, the mat can be lifted to get into your bag at any time.
Made from sustainably forested ply.
The Feelix Lock features three slots and a notch, allowing you to cusomise your strap length and secure it in place to carry your mat.
Locally carved and finished by hand in Melbourne Australia
Handcrafted in Limited Numbers
A new way of carrying your mat. Whether you practice in a studio or on top of a mountain.
Easily carry your mat on your bike, on your backpack, or on your shoulder.
Turn any backpack into a yoga mat carry bag without forfeiting precious space inside, so you can still carry all your gear.
Designed and made in Melbourne. The patented design was refined over over three years of development by local yoga teacher, founder and creator Jen.
The strap has been tested by yogi students and teachers, on city streets, through international airports and on busy public transport commutes (well busy pre-covid, PT is pretty empty now, at least in Melbourne).
The Feelix Yoga strap will get your yoga mat to practice however you travel.
Exclusive to 108 Yoga Road, because having a website for just a yoga strap seemed weird and shortsighted.

Frequently asked questions
Will it work with any mat?
Just about! :)
How do I change the length?
If you like to keep things simple you can fix a length in place and not think about it again.
What if my bag doesn't have a handle?
This design relies on the bag being worn to push the strp up to hold it in place.
My mat is slipping what have I done wrong?
Over the Shoulder -
Be sure your mat is rolled nice and tight so the middle doesn't fall out like an ice cream cone.
Check you have the sticky side of your mat facing out. The strap relies on the grippiness of your mat to stay in place.
You can also add a knot under the Lock for extra security if you have a particually heavy mat.
How do I care for my strap?
The strap is designed to last.
Note, because the wood is a natural material it will change colour over time or if exposed to the elements.
I'm really tall - will it work for me?
The strap is designed for people of medium height. If you're 6ft plus and want to use the strap as a sling over your body you'll probably find this too short. Email me and I'll customise the length for you. Bonus benefit of being handmade ;).
Can I use the strap for Yin?
Yes, we should all do more Yin!
See note above if you're tall about adding some extra length you'll want it for supported head pose. ;)
