from the same natural rubber material

20
00:00:51,750 –> 00:00:53,730
the main difference is their thickness

21
00:00:53,730 –> 00:00:57,090
the red travel yoga mat is 1/8 of an

22
00:00:57,090 –> 00:01:00,480
inch thick it is their thinnest mat and

23
00:01:00,480 –> 00:01:03,570
lightest mat at 3 pounds while the Jade

24
00:01:03,570 –> 00:01:06,900
harmony mat is 3/16 of an inch thick

25
00:01:06,900 –> 00:01:09,780
also according to their website all Jade

26
00:01:09,780 –> 00:01:12,689
yoga mats are made in the US here are

27
00:01:12,689 –> 00:01:14,549
the Jade yoga mats laid out on the

28
00:01:14,549 –> 00:01:17,580
ground as you can see they lay flat no

29
00:01:17,580 –> 00:01:20,250
lumps no bumps no curling at the edges

30
00:01:20,250 –> 00:01:22,950
or the corners which is nice both mats

31
00:01:22,950 –> 00:01:25,880
are 24 inches wide and 68 inches long

32
00:01:25,880 –> 00:01:29,040

33
00:01:29,040 –> 00:01:32,460
at 28 inches and extra long versions at

34
00:01:32,460 –> 00:01:35,939
74 inches high these mats for more than

35
00:01:35,939 –> 00:01:38,759
4 years I use them all the time to

36
00:01:38,759 –> 00:01:41,369
practice and teach vinyasa flow even hot

37
00:01:41,369 –> 00:01:45,060
yoga they’ve survived amazingly well in

38
00:01:45,060 –> 00:01:47,280
my opinion and I really do enjoy using

39
00:01:47,280 –> 00:01:50,850
these now let’s talk about the pros

40
00:01:50,850 –> 00:01:53,579
number one pro is the traction it has

41
00:01:53,579 –> 00:01:56,490
great grip it’s non slippery my

42
00:01:56,490 –> 00:01:58,110
experience with this has been very

43
00:01:58,110 –> 00:02:00,659
positive in terms of staying on my mat

44
00:02:00,659 –> 00:02:03,270
and not slipping and downward facing dog

45
00:02:03,270 –> 00:02:05,939
having said that I’m a bit of an anomaly

46
00:02:05,939 –> 00:02:09,210
I sweat a lot

47
00:02:09,210 –> 00:02:11,940
and my palms sweat when I practice and I

48
00:02:11,940 –> 00:02:13,320
know that’s crows too much information

49
00:02:13,320 –> 00:02:17,070
I’m sorry but at some point if I’m

50
00:02:17,070 –> 00:02:19,530
practicing hot yoga especially I will

51
00:02:19,530 –> 00:02:22,020
start to slip on this one and I don’t

52
00:02:22,020 –> 00:02:24,450
really blame the mat for that I just if

53
00:02:24,450 –> 00:02:28,710
it’s too much sweat too much moisture I

54
00:02:28,710 –> 00:02:30,990
will start to slip so I’ll put a towel

55
00:02:30,990 –> 00:02:34,380
over it but if you are a normal person

56
00:02:34,380 –> 00:02:36,690
who sweats a normal amount then you

57
00:02:36,690 –> 00:02:38,520
might like this for the traction that it

58
00:02:38,520 –> 00:02:41,160
provides number two Pro is it’s

59
00:02:41,160 –> 00:02:44,040
eco-friendly the material is natural

60
00:02:44,040 –> 00:02:46,320
rubber which is a renewable and

61
00:02:46,320 –> 00:02:49,290
sustainable resource there is no PVC no

62
00:02:49,290 –> 00:02:51,660
synthetic rubbers so if you’re sensitive

63
00:02:51,660 –> 00:02:53,460
to that this is a good thing to consider

64
00:02:53,460 –> 00:02:55,740
in connection to being eco-friendly

65
00:02:55,740 –> 00:02:59,040
another pro is that they have a biomass

66
00:02:59,040 –> 00:03:01,440
plant a tree program they’ve partnered

67
00:03:01,440 –> 00:03:03,900
with trees for the future it’s an

68
00:03:03,900 –> 00:03:05,790
organization that works with local

69
00:03:05,790 –> 00:03:08,220
communities on environmentally

70
00:03:08,220 –> 00:03:10,860
sustainable projects and that’s great

71
00:03:10,860 –> 00:03:13,260
the last Pro is variety have different

72
00:03:13,260 –> 00:03:15,840
sizes different thicknesses of the mat

73
00:03:15,840 –> 00:03:19,710
and also a variety of colors and it’s

74
00:03:19,710 –> 00:03:21,750
really lovely to look at so if that’s

75
00:03:21,750 –> 00:03:23,880
important to you just how pretty your

76
00:03:23,880 –> 00:03:26,580
mat is gel yoga has a lot of wonderful

77
00:03:26,580 –> 00:03:29,690
colors for you to choose from

78
00:03:29,740 –> 00:03:32,780
let’s talk about the cons number one

79
00:03:32,780 –> 00:03:37,070
definitely is the price $60 $75 maybe a

80
00:03:37,070 –> 00:03:39,130
little bit less if you buy it on Amazon

81
00:03:39,130 –> 00:03:42,410
but it’s still a lot of money for a yoga

82
00:03:42,410 –> 00:03:46,070
mat however if you are a consistent yoga

83
00:03:46,070 –> 00:03:48,230
practitioner you want a good high

84
00:03:48,230 –> 00:03:50,900
quality yoga mat that comes from a

85
00:03:50,900 –> 00:03:52,580
company that you know helps the

86
00:03:52,580 –> 00:03:54,950
environment then you know maybe you’re

87
00:03:54,950 –> 00:03:57,410
okay with spending your money on this

88
00:03:57,410 –> 00:04:00,650
the second con is durability and I know

89
00:04:00,650 –> 00:04:03,440
I said it’s a good high quality yoga mat

90
00:04:03,440 –> 00:04:07,340
and it is but it’s not your forever yoga

91
00:04:07,340 –> 00:04:09,110
mat the reason I say this is because

92
00:04:09,110 –> 00:04:11,270
another mat that I will be reviewing

93
00:04:11,270 –> 00:04:14,720
next week is very very durable it can be

94
00:04:14,720 –> 00:04:17,360
considered a forever yoga mat that’s

95
00:04:17,360 –> 00:04:19,089
going to last a really really long time

96
00:04:19,089 –> 00:04:23,540
this though high-quality has its limits

97
00:04:23,540 –> 00:04:26,390
so at some point it might lose some

98
00:04:26,390 –> 00:04:27,140
traction

99
00:04:27,140 –> 00:04:30,050
it’ll get scuffed up on different parts

100
00:04:30,050 –> 00:04:32,390
usually where the hands and the feet go

101
00:04:32,390 –> 00:04:34,310
and downward facing dog mine is a little

102
00:04:34,310 –> 00:04:37,730
scuffed up and also it stretches out a

103
00:04:37,730 –> 00:04:39,980
little bit and you’re on your mat in

104
00:04:39,980 –> 00:04:42,710
down dog for example I can feel the mat

105
00:04:42,710 –> 00:04:44,870
sometimes getting stretched in different

106
00:04:44,870 –> 00:04:47,120
directions and I had my husband use it

107
00:04:47,120 –> 00:04:49,340
one time when a very slippery wooden

108
00:04:49,340 –> 00:04:52,040
floor and the mat was sliding around on

109
00:04:52,040 –> 00:04:52,580
the floor

110
00:04:52,580 –> 00:04:55,850
now the third con is it has a rubber

111
00:04:55,850 –> 00:04:58,490
smell personally it didn’t bother me

112
00:04:58,490 –> 00:05:00,260
when I first bought it it still doesn’t

113
00:05:00,260 –> 00:05:02,540
bother me now will dissipate over time

114
00:05:02,540 –> 00:05:04,760
but if you don’t have the patience for

115
00:05:04,760 –> 00:05:06,830
that then definitely bear that in mind

116
00:05:06,830 –> 00:05:10,070
with a jade yoga mat there you haven’t

117
00:05:10,070 –> 00:05:11,870
we talked about the details of the

118
00:05:11,870 –> 00:05:14,210
product weigh the pros and cons now you

119
00:05:14,210 –> 00:05:16,940
can make a more informed decision when

120
00:05:16,940 –> 00:05:18,830
you’re out there choosing the yoga mat

121
00:05:18,830 –> 00:05:20,450
