Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is quite a wonderful mat. I needed a mat that had a very strong grip on it and I chose this mat for that reason. My hands and feet tend to sweat during practice and I don't move at all on this mat. Even in down dog, I am SO much more comfortable and can concentrate on my breath much easier without my hands continually slipping. I have the sedona red, and I think it is beautiful.
Pros: Durable, Eco-friendly, very non-slip, beautiful colors, comfortable, for every mat sold they plant a tree.
Cons: Heavy- but this doesn't particularly bother me. Must step off to the side to do certain balancing poses like Tree because the cushion makes it difficult to balance.
Overall, the cons don't bother me because I have not yet found a mat that works better for me than this one. I highly recommend this yoga mat.
Even though I've been practicing yoga pretty faithfully for a few years now, I never invested in a good mat. Finally, my cheap one got so worn that I had no choice but to replace it. First I tried a basic Gaiam mat which was reasonably priced, but I found it to be about as effective (and comfortable) as trying to practice on a beach towel. Rather than waste anymore money I took the plunge and ordered the Jade Fusion and am now kicking myself for not doing it about three years ago. Poses that put weight on knees are no longer painful and the traction of this mat can't be beat (the only problem is that EVERYTHING sticks to it - pet hair, floor dust, small children - so it has to be cleaned consistently).
I'd recommend this mat for yogis who have at least a little experience under their belts, simply because balancing poses can be a bit more challenging on the Fusion due to the added thickness - you can't feel the floor through it as well as you can with a thinner mat. I...
I'm not the queen of ashtanga or anything but I've enjoyed practicing yoga for about 5 years. Much like the Princess and the Pea, I'm really picky about mats and have had difficulty with slipping (my feet sweat a lot). I researched rubber mats when my studio converted to hardwood floors. I already had a thick mat but wanted more cush. This really fits the bill. The smell takes some getting used to but the added comfort is worth a little rubbery scent. And no slipping - EVER. I washed it once when it was brand new, let it air dry, and that was it. I find the cushioning to be far superior to my old mat when I'm doing balance poses. You can really grip it with your feet and it makes holding all asanas a lot easier. Everybody else in my class is using 2 or 3 standard mats at a time to get extra cushion. I use this and I'm just fine and I have middle-aged knees. I never thought I'd pay this much for a mat but it's totally worth it.
