Hartford, CT, June 5, 2009 --- YogaDirect.com, the largest direct importer and manufacturer of quality yoga equipment in the United States, is pleased to announce their partnership agreement with Microban International, Ltd. The new line of Yoga Mats from YogaDirect feature a Microban® zinc based antimicrobial technology that helps to protect mats against bacteria and fungus that can cause stains and odors.

On an unprotected mat, bacteria and fungus can quickly multiply and grow. Microban antimicrobial protection works continuously keeping YogaDirect mats cleaner between cleanings. Microban zinc-based antimicrobial technology is infused into YogaDirect mats during the manufacturing process, providing 24/7 antimicrobial protection that won't wash off or wear away for the lifetime of the yoga mat.

Microban antimicrobial technologies are currently being used by over 150 leading companies around the globe, and the new Yoga Mat with Microban protection is another addition to the growing list of over 750 products now available with Microban protection.

“We are very pleased to partner with Microban to bring to market the first line of Yoga Mats featuring Microban antimicrobial protection. The new mats bring a new and important cleanliness benefit to the yoga mat market that both consumers and gym owners will appreciate,” says YogaDirect's President and CEO, Steve Wampold.
