The Jade Harmony Yoga Mat literally has my back. Find out if this yoga mat is a good match for you, too.
After I did extensive yoga mat research, my husband purchased the Jade Yoga Harmony Mat in teal for me as a holiday gift in 2017. Since then, I’ve been practicing on this mat for almost five years, and it has become one of my favorite yoga mats.
Here are three reasons to buy a Jade Yoga Harmony Mat:
1. It’s less slippery and more sticky than other mats. My feet and hands stay in place and I have better traction, so I can go deeper into poses. My Downward Facing Dogs and just about every hip-opening pose, are longer (and stronger!). This mat also gave me the courage to attempt arm balances I had not previously tried, such as Side Crow. (Check out my article about Bakasana (Crow Pose).
2. It’s versatile. I can take this mat to any yoga class—hot, vinyasa flow, hatha, restorative—or practice at home or outside, and I know this mat will have my back. Literally.
3. It’s eco-friendly. There’s nothing synthetic about these mats. They’re made of natural rubber from rubber trees. Plus, Jade Yoga plants a tree every time a mat is purchased. More than 2 million trees had been planted thanks to Jade Yoga. Try this foundational yoga pose on a Jade Yoga mat.

Practice It: Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward-Facing Dog)
From hands and knees in tabletop, spread fingers wide as you curl your toes and straighten your legs.
Bring your sit bones high as you soften your heels toward the earth.
Nod your head “yes “and “no” and peddle your legs if that feels good.
Linger here for a few breaths.
When you’re ready to come out of the pose, bend your knees, look toward your hands and walk your feet toward them in Uttanasana (Standing Forward Fold).
Roll up one notch at a time until you come into Tadasana (Mountain Pose).
