After reading the review regarding sensitivities and the Jade yoga mat I wanted to add some thoughts. I am a yoga instructor and teach about 10 classes per week I love my 3 year old Jade yoga mat. It does smell different at first. One thing I have done to get rid of the smell is to wash my mat in the washer and hang it over a line to dry. These mats seem almost indestructible and if I ever need another one I will purchase the earth-friendly Jade. You can leave it in the car in the hot Florida summer which you cannot do with the cheaper sticky mats which turn gummy.

I have been practicing ashtanga and vinyasa yoga for 3 years, in both heated and nonheated environments, about 3-5 times a week. In that time I have used 2 different Jade yoga mats, but the first one I bought is now 3 years old and still usable.

Here are some simple recommendations for getting the most life out of your mat. With my first mat, I found that I was always standing on the same side and in the same place, and eventually (after a year) that created a bit of deterioration at the back of the mat where my feet set up in downward dog. With my second mat, I regularly change which end I stand on, and flip it over to use the other side. Both sides of the mat are equally tacky, and by doing this, my second mat is now 2 years old and in still in perfect shape. Also, I regularly washed my first mat in the washing machine, but I think I did it too frequently. With my second mat, I use a tea tree disinfectant after each use, and take it home from the studio to wash about once every 2 months. That routine has kept my mat clean and free of nasties. I have no problems with traction even in 100F rooms.

If you are thinking about buying a Jade yoga mat, just do it! They are seriously awesome (and "the smell" really does go away in short time compared to the life of the mat.)

At first touch, the mat seems to be very "slip proof". I tried it out at home before bringing it to class and it seemed great. However, when using it in class, once my hands became a bit moist (and I don't mean profuse sweating) I began to slip so much that I couldn't do downward facing dog safely. I used the mat in a couple more classes that week and I continued to have the same problem. (Actually, the only thing that stuck to the mat was my clothing.) It was much worse than my regular yoga mat. Fortunately, the seller was great and I did get a full refund. It was very disappointing though as my search for a non-slippery mat continues. Regarding the smell that others have commented about- when I first took the mat out of the box, it smelled like a new tire. It wasn't terribly strong, but there is a smell there and will be on your hands as you practice and will come off with routine hand washing. It didn't bother me. Since I didn't have the mat for more than a week, I don't know if the smell would have lessened over time.

I am so incredibly impressed with my Encore Jade mat, it has went above and beyond my expectations of a non slip, long lasting, conservative mat. Yes, the smell is a bit strong. However, that's the price you pay for a 100% recycled mat! Not only is it the first mat made out of recycled rubber, but the company also plants one tree for every mat sold! How awesome is that! The Jade mat is a win win!

I love my Jade yoga mat! When I first received it, it definitely had a strong odor of rubber. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to keep it, but after using it regularly and storing it unrolled, the odor went away after about 1-2 weeks. It sounds bad, but the actual quality of this mat is so much better than any one I've used previously!
If you're used to using a cheap-y mat, the first thing you'll notice is that this one is much heavier even though it is thinner. I was concerned because I bike with my mat and frequently carry it around on weekends after yoga, but you'll get used to it and I've never actually noticed the weight since after first buying it.
I also attend hot yoga, so I bought a yogi-toes mat to go over top of this since my hands and feet get slippery. Sometimes I actually find that the mat is MORE slip resistant than the towel!
And as I said before, the actual quality of this is just much better. My cats used to pick at my old plastic one and there would be little chunks of it all over (cats are declawed). But this one does not have the capability to break off into little pieces. It's relatively smooth with a fine texture to aid in slip prevention. I use my mat 2x week for the last 2 years including transport in a bag and slinging it all over the city after class. It shows virtually no signs of wear. When the light its it just right I can tell that it's slightly more dull in the downward dog areas, but that's about it!

The only time I might recommend not getting this mat is if you have very sensitive joints and prefer more cushion. This is definitely a thin mat, but I just fold mine or throw my towel down if I need more cushion.
