About us


After 20 years of practicing yoga, I realized that the same questions continued to pop into my head and interrupt my Zen zone. “Are my heels aligned?”, “Are my hands shoulder width apart?”, “Are my feet hip width apart?” “Where, exactly is 3’ on my mat?”

I realized that these questions would be easily answered if I had a grid on my mat. But, I wanted more than just lines, circles, and numbers. I wanted it to look beautiful, simple, and Zen.

I also worked for 8 years as a personal trainer. After working with clients of all types, I realized that the most important part of any activity is what is happening in your core. If we are always worried about what is happening on the outside, we never have the time and energy to focus on and develop the inside or core. Did I just use a metaphor for life? 

Gurugrid is the second product I have brought to fruition. I created Scoopies in 1999 and developed and built the business until I sold it in 2009. This is what I love to do. I love to develop ideas that are close to my heart and see them grow. I am glad I can share Gurugrid and other future products with you!
