A long time ago, I wanted to get into yoga.  I got a mat from Target and called it a day.  It was a basic mat that cost probably $20.  I never used it much, mainly because it was hard and uncomfortable.  As you all know, I’m a plus size mama, so doing some yoga acrobatics on a hard surface is NOT my idea of fun.  I basically gave up on yoga and decided maybe it just wasn’t for me.

I ended up getting interested in yoga again as a way of stretching and relaxing.  I went on the hunt for a quality mat and came across JadeYoga.  JadeYoga mats are made from natural rubber which is a renewable resource from rubber trees.  Natural rubber has more cushion than a synthetic mat which means you can spend more time doing yoga and less time being uncomfortable.

Whether you are a beginner or a regular practicing yogi, everyone can benefit from a comfortable yoga mat with great slip resistance.  Spending the extra money on a quality mat can make the difference between you actually practicing (and enjoying!) yoga and your cheap, generic mat sitting rolled up in the corner collecting dust.  Another difference between this mat and a cheap version is that it rolls out flat so you’re not constantly trying to flatten the curled up end.  That is more annoying than it sounds.  I promise.

Not only are the mats eco-friendly, but JadeYoga plants a tree for every mat sold.  They also have a special teal mat that donates $5 of every mat sold to ovarian cancer awareness, research and testing.  Yoga mats isn’t the only thing you can find over at JadeYoga.  They also carry yoga blocks, towels and other goodies, so go shop around!
