This full-page magazine ad for yoga mat cleaner ties in to yoga teachers’ values and goals of being physically active and keeping their studio clean for their students. A dirty mat can be an obstacle, as it does not provide sufficient friction for practicing yoga.
The lotus is a symbol of purity and transcendence, and the green color is earthy and natural to appeal to yogis’ sense of oneness with the earth.
