LightWorker UV debuts new disinfection technology at LA Yoga Expo

The Lightworker uses UV-C technology to inactivate and destroy 99.9% of all bacteria, viruses and fungi on exercise and yoga mats, leaving your mat fresh and odor free. Replacing time-consuming and harmful sprays and chemicals, mats are sanitized with a powerful burst of UV-C light that simultaneously sanitizes both sides of a yoga mat in less than 30 seconds. Lightworker machines are manufactured at Sunburst Sanctuary in Lompoc, California.

“The Lightworker is a revolutionary way to sanitize your mat and will forever change the way our yoga community thinks about the health and cleanliness of how we practice,” says the CEO of LightWorker UV. Derek Spurlock, “There is no more need for harsh chemicals, sprays and wipes that can degrade the quality and life of your yoga mat. With pure light, you can regain confidence practicing in a safe environment. and knowing that you are protecting yourself and others from germs and odors.”

Lightworker UV was founded by an entrepreneur Derek Spurlock, using proven technology developed years ago by the founder of Matsana John Burnaby, with help and input from some of the greatest minds in the yoga industry, including Pierre Sterios (founder of Manduka) and Blake Beltram (one of the co-founders of MindBody). LightWorker UV has revamped this smart, easy-to-use technology to help yoga studios and fitness centers around the world bounce back by providing a safe, healthy, eco-friendly and germ-free way to practice and establish a new standard of cleanliness.

“In a world where we are constantly reminded of how quickly infections can spread, it is essential to do everything in your power to be part of the solution,” says Melissa Spurlock – Derek’s wife, an avid fellow yogi and registered nurse. “I have personally benefited from this technology for years, knowing that I am reducing the health risks for all students in my class, and I am thrilled to finally see it available to the general public.”
