After I did my yoga mat research, my husband purchased the Jade Yoga Harmony Mat in teal for me as a holiday gift in 2017. I’ve been practicing on this mat almost daily for two years, and it's one of my favorite yoga mats.


Here are three reasons why:


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—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. 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 sit bones high as you soften 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 Tada-asana (Mountain Pose).
