Michael Patton of Yoga Vida offers Jade Yoga mats in his studios. Read here about the positive impacts he has found since partnering with them.
Yoga Vida’s mission is, “To build a community that supports healthier, happier lives.” To support that mission, the four-location brand is equipped with top-notch instructors, beautiful spaces and quality yoga accessories, including mats from JadeYoga.
According to Michael Patton of Yoga Vida, the brand chose to offer JadeYoga’s mats due the quality and integrity of the company. “They’re a small organization with a big reach, and they started giving back before it was ‘cool,’” he said. “They’re the best, and they have integrity.”
Founded in 2000, JadeYoga’s mats are made from natural rubber, which in addition to having better cushion and resilience, is also a renewable resource. The company’s mats are made in the U.S. in compliance with U.S. environmental laws and contain no PVCs — making the mats the first “green” and non-toxic yoga mats.
To further its positive environmental impact, JadeYoga plants a tree for every mat sold and has planted over 1 million trees to date. They also preserve 100 square feet of rainforest with every cork block sold, and provide 30 days of drinking water to countries in need with every towel sold.
According to Patton, another benefit to the JadeYoga mats is their quality. His personal favorite is the Jade Harmony mat, which he described as a “classic” with great grip and cushion.
“Students appreciate having good-quality products to use in their practice,” said Patton. “[JadeYoga has] a great product, service and people.”
