Jade Yoga™ first launched its brand of yoga mats in 2002, but its true beginnings grew from Jade Industries, Inc., a company selling non-slip rubber mats in the 1970s. With some yogis already using the rug pads as yoga mats, it only made sense for Jade Industries, Inc. to branch off and begin specializing in yoga products.
Following a demonstration from the great B.K.S Iyengar, the problem with most yoga mats became painfully obvious, they were slippery. Not only did it make practicing yoga annoying, but it put the user at risk of injury. Sticking with the parent company's core values of using natural, high-quality materials, Jade Yoga began working fervently in 2000 to address this problem. After some initial testing and sampling, the overwhelming response they received ensured Jade Yoga was on a path to success.
From their tireless efforts, Jade Yoga's "Harmony" line was born, comfortable, non-slip, and all-natural. This is Jade Yoga's mantra, helping yogis find peace with their inner nature, through nature. The development of the world's first "green" yoga mat really happened by accident because they were actually focused on making the best functioning yoga mat. It was just a coincidence that natural rubber provided the best comfort and performance for yogis.
Every day Jade Yoga seizes the opportunity to invent products and reinvent themselves. Never being satisfied with what they have, they continue to push to do bigger and better things. Since their initial launch in 2002, they've gone on to make stability blocks, yoga towels, among other things. This expansion hasn't stopped them from keeping their promise. Through their partnership with Trees for the Future, Jade Yoga plants a tree for every yoga mat sold. They truly embody the idea of being "environmentally friendly" and take it to a new level and that's what you can expect from Jade Yoga.

I bought this may partly because I wanted one that was not going to off gas terrible chemicals. Unfortunately, the mat stinks like petroleum and the smell hasn’t gone away even though I’ve had it and used it for months now. My husband wants me to throw it out because he believes the smell to be extremely toxic. I have now placed the mat outside so it can off gas there, but will probably have to throw it out. Extremely disappointing for such an expensive mat.Preferred Type of Yoga Practice VinyasaLevel of Yoga Expertise IntermediateFrequency (a week) 2-4Perspiration Level LightDurability Star RatingRated 5.0 on a scale of 1 to 5EEverydayYoga.com3 years agoThank you for your feedback regarding this mat! The Jade Yoga Harmony XW Long Natural Rubber Yoga Mat 71" 5mm is natural rubber and as such, natural rubber does give off a rubber smell. However, this smell will go away over time, depending on several factors including, but not limited to; how the mat is cleaned and stored, how sensitive you are to the scent, as well as the amount of odor in the rubber.Some tips to help getting rid of the rubber smell include:- Air out your mat in a well-ventilated area- Keep your mat out of direct sunlight (due to the photo-sensitivity of natural rubber)- Keep it unrolled often and do not roll too tightly- Clean your mat often, especially in those first weeks, using mild soap and a wet rag, or your favorite vinegar-based mat restorer solution.We hope this information is helpful, but if you need any assistance please feel free to [contact us](https://support.yogaoutlet.com/hc/en-us/articles/115005182023-Contact-Us).

I purchased this mat after struggling with cheap mats for years. I was so tired of mats shifting and moving during class. Not only does it stay put, but it offers a great amount of cushion. I am very happy with my new mat!

Love the size/width/weight & color. Imagined it would of felt more thick. Overall, i like it. Still feel slightly slippery on mat during sweaty work out. For the price i would of liked it thicker and grippier! Reason i give it 4 stars is the larger size.
