An ideal combination of comfort and traction, the Jade Yoga™ Harmony Professional Yoga Mat lets you focus on the task at hand.
I have weak wrists and my sister let me try her Jade Yoga Harmony mat. I realized that I had been trying to get mats that were extra thick or softer but I really needed one with more grip. This one is perfect. The long length is great for me (I am 5 foot 8 inches). I ordered my own mat from this site and it came very quickly, just in time for my next class. Great purchase!
This mat is worth the price, The extra length is just what I needed being 5''10" tall. The extra grip is great as well. The smell seems to be decreasing as well. I hang it over a chair back in between sessions for now. I anticipate many great sessions with this mat.
I ordered the long mat so my fingers and toes wouldn''t hang over the edge as they did with my old mat. The 74" length of the Harmony mat works very well for me (5''6" tall). The mat is a bit heavy to carry, but less weighty than the two less expensive mats I had rolled together before to give my knees adequate cushioning. I am happy with the cushioning of the Harmony mat given that, at 3/16" thick, it is better than my old, thinner mats combined. The stickiness of the mat allows me to hold all poses well except every once in a while in downward dog, when my palms can get fairly sweaty and slide a bit.

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.
