Jade Harmony Mat – Product Overview:

What should you look for in a Yoga Mat:

Investing in the best yoga mat is crucialas you would want to protect yourself from any damage that might arise due to the slippery surface or any discomfort. Not only should the mat be slip resistant, it should also provide superior shock absorption, for intense yoga practices. In this Jade Harmony Mat Review, I will discuss how well it is made, how comfortable it is, some minor drawbacks with it and the best place to buy online. By the end of this review, you should have a good idea as to whether the Jade Harmony Mat is right for you.

How Jade Yoga Mat is made:

Being the first company to make eco-friendly yoga mats, Jade is committed to giving back to the earth, by planting a tree for every product sold – with over ONE MILLION trees planted so far. The Jade Yoga Mats are made of natural rubber and does not contain PVC, EVC or other synthetic rubber. As the product is made in the United States with all US environmental labor and consumer protection laws, customers can be ensured of the highest quality of the product. Of course, the science behind this product seems very impressive. But does it actually work as advertised? In the next section let’s check out what others have experienced using this product.

What others have experienced about Jade Harmony Mat

The mat provides extra comfort and it’s slightly ridged surface gives perfect traction. It sticks like glue during the most demanding balancing poses like Downward Facing Dog. This mat outperforms many other mats during both wet and dry yoga, with its tackiness from the natural rubber. The Mat’s open-cell (means the mat is porous and moisture permeable) surface absorbs sweat, water and oils, thus prevents slipping and provides great traction, which indicates that it’s an ideal mat for Hot Yoga.

 My Thoughts on Jade Harmony Mat:

From my experience on researching the product, I think this mat is ideal for everyone considering the fact that it offers amazing grip, incredible traction, great comfort, and sustainability. If one is able to take few precautions (listed below) to maintain the mat, this should be the best choice in its class.

Precautions to maintain the mat:

In order to make this mat more durable never leave it to direct sunlight or car for very long as high heat and UV exposure breaks down the material. Another recommendation is to get a Yoga Towel, to prevent it from getting smelly fast. When this mat is deep cleaned, it takes two whole days to completely dry out. Grit, hair and other small particles stick to it easily, so you’ll have to ensure that your pets stay clear of it, to have a clean surface and you should be fine. The best way to dissipate the rubber smell is to air the mat out in front of a fan or a well-ventilated area, but not in direct sunlight.

Pros

      • Good grip
      • Environment-friendly
      • Wet and dry traction
      • Portable

Cons

      • Strong odor (eventually dissipates)
      • Can wear out quickly (if used vigorously and not maintained properly)

Conclusion

I would highly recommend the Jade Harmony Mat for beginner and advanced yogis. Just ensure to keep in mind the above-mentioned precautions and you should be fine with the durability of the product. If you have any question or if you wish to provide your own personal review (after having used the product), please do so using the comment box below.

Note: Jade recommends that this mat is not suitable for those having a latex allergy, as natural rubber may contain traces of latex proteins, so even though it is 99 percent latex-free, it might be a problem for those sensitive to latex.

  1. The Jade yoga mat looks amazing! I have recently purchased a very inexpensive yoga mat and am thoroughly disappointed in it. I slide all over the place and cannot seem to stay in down dog without adjusting my hands frequently. I have learned my lesson and will now be investing in a quality mat. I see you mentioned that the mat may break down quickly if not properly taken care of. What is your recommended way to take care of your yoga mat?
    Thanks for the review!

    1. Hi Monet, agree with you. Even I have experienced on several occasions that when you go for a cheaper product, it does not last long enough.

      On your question – I had mentioned that the mat might wear out quickly if used vigorously, for example – multiple times a day and not maintaining it properly (you might want to check the points mentioned in “Precautions to maintain the mat”). This, am sure you would agree, applies to any product. If one does not maintain the product properly and keeps using it vigorously, it’s bound to wear out soon.

      Thanks,

  2. I started taking yoga again recently. The mat I have is old and not comfortable at all. I would have thought a rubber mat would not move but it does.I would like to get this mat because it seems to be a much better quality than the one I have. After all, it’s the only piece of equipment you need so why not get a better mat. I’m glad that you listed those precautions though. It’s important to know.

    1. Thank you for stopping by. Glad that you found the post useful. Agree with you completely. Instead of buying a cheaper quality mat which may result in slippage or injury, it’s better to get a good quality mat. By buying the Jade Harmony Mat, you would make yourself proud as you would be a contributor to Jade’s commitment to giving back to earth by planting a tree for each product sold.

      By the way, you could also have a look at Manduka’s eKO Yoga Mat – which is also made of natural rubber, is eco-friendly and biodegradable.
