"Meet Mat (A Yoga Love Story)" from Kimpton Hotels

What a quirky little mat dude!

"A yoga mat in every Kimpton hotel room: kimptonhotels.com/yoga. At Kimpton, we celebrate wellness at every corner. From 24-hour yoga and Pilates, bikes for borrow, weighted work-out hula hoops, employee-led runs through town to energetic group exercise classes, we've got a slew of activities to help guests feel their best when they're on the road. And it doesn't always mean fitting in a work out. Sometimes feeling well is as simple as enjoying a glass of wine during our evening wine hour or skipping to our adjacent chef-driven restaurants for a delicious bite."
