What is your hammock company's name?
What made you want to start a hammock company?
“Our inspiration for Levitat came from practicing stand-up paddle surfing (SUP) yoga and being able to simply have fun and unplug from the norm,” said Enoc Armengol, creator and co-founder of Levitat.
“Our aerial mat simulates the constant unbalance you feel while on the water, but the beauty of Levitat is it can be used nearly anywhere, and it’s light and portable as a hammock”
Like SUP yoga, Armengol says Levitat Yoga Hammocks allows yogis to maximize their core training while allowing them to ‘feel’ when their yoga position is correct or incorrect.
“Levitat also offers a great way for surfers, climbers and other athletes and sports enthusiasts a way to strengthen and tone for other sports,” Armengol said. “Our aerial mat provides an innovative way to get a full-body workout anywhere and everywhere.”
How is your hammock company different than other hammock companies like Tentsile?
Levitat is not just for relaxing. It can also be used as a levitating fitness mat to add new core strength and difficulty to exercises!
Beyond being used as a hammock, Levitat can also offer yogis a new way to challenge themselves and focus more, improve core strength and balance through cross training, and allow users to take mindfulness to a higher level of absolute peace and comfort.
Levitat Aerial Mats are specially designed to be passive (relax, lay, sleep like a Tentsile or ENO) but also designed for active training (workout, balance, yoga, core strength). The mat's distance from every side of the inner hexagon allows for the practice of yoga, pilates, functional training, etc. It doesn't have zippers etc in the middle that will create friction on your body.
The whole structure has been optimized to be the lightest weight possible while offering maximum tension for laying & training.
We are the first company in the world to have created an indoor / outdoor frame to hold a 3 point suspended hammock.
