Product information "Yoga Mat Elite S - Midnight Blue Black"

If you are looking for a natural rubber mat that can withstand heavy strains, the Elite S is the right mat for you. Its dense surface makes it much more robust and stable than any very open-cell structured natural rubber mats; as a result, it is ideal for flowing, more intensive yoga styles such as Ashtanga or Vinyasa. The slightly roughened surface gives the Elite a very good grip, too. In addition, the Elite also has the best ecological features: natural rubber is a 100% biodegradable. The manufacturer JadeYoga also promises to plant a tree for every mat sold - that's already over 1.6 million trees! Perfect grip, good for the environment - what more does the yogi want?

Storage: do not expose your Jade Elite S to excessively high temperatures. If the mat has become slightly moist due to sweat or water, leave it to dry before rolling it up.

Usage: in order to have perfect grip, use a damp cloth to wipe off your mat before using it the first time. Experience says that it takes 3-6 weeks until the mat has ideal grip and slip-resistance properties, depending on usage and intensity of your praxis. Please note, that natural rubber has a natural intrinsic smell. Because no chemicals have been used to neutralise the rubbery smell, the mat can have a strong odour . However, this odour is perceived differently by everyone and it does fade away in the course of time, after which the mat will then smell just like any other one. Sometimes, fresh air can work wonders to lessen the odour!  The best way of doing this is to air the mat for 24 hours before its first usage and rub it down with a moist cloth. Alternatively, you can also use a vinegar-based cleaning agent for your mat which combats odours and bacteria and at the same time restores your mat’s grip power.

Cleaning: for optimal cleaning, we recommend the professional care spray Manduka Mat wash spray, or a self-prepared solution of water and organic cider vinegar (50/50). Please do not put the mat in the washing machine because this attacks the material and causes the mat to swell up like a sponge.

Customer review for "Yoga Mat Elite S - Midnight Blue Black"

Fusion aus Ekolite und Harmony

Nachdem meine alte Manduka Ekolite nach fünf Jahren fast täglicher Ayur-Yoga-Praxis rutschig geworden ist (und leider meine favorisierte Farbe "Quest" nicht mehr lieferbar und die aktuellen Manduka-Farben nicht meinen Vorstellungen entsprechen), war ich auf der Suche nach einer neuen Matte eines anderen Herstellers, die ich auch zum Unterrichten mitnehmen kann. Die Manduka Pro oder andere Schwergewichte schieden deshalb von vornherein aus. Als Yogalehrerin ist mir eine gute Matte besonders wichtig.
Die Elite S ist eine unglaublich griffige Matte und dabei auch sehr stabil (keine Wellen oder Bewegungen wie bei meiner alten Ekolite). Sie bleibt bei allen bisher getesteten Asana an Ort und Stelle - klebt fast am Boden.
Sie ist selbst schwitzig/naß unglaublich griffig, was bei der Manduka irgendwann (ab einer bestimmten Menge Wasser) nicht mehr der Fall war. Die Oberfläche ist etwas glatter als bei der Harmony bzw. Voyager (meine Reisematte), sie fühlt sich aber trotzdem rauer an als eine Manduka der Ekolinie. Also etwas, das man beim Umstieg von Manduka beachten sollte.
Die Dämpfung der Elite S ist vollkommen in Ordnung. Ich habe nachgemessen: Sie ist nur knapp über 4 Millimeter dick, keine fünf wie beschrieben, was mich bei einem Gewicht von 2,2 Kilo (also gleich wie meine Ekolite) auch sehr gewundert hätte. Insofern sollte die Artikelbeschreibung evtl. geändert werden für Menschen, die eine Matte mit mehr Dämpfung/Dicke suchen. Aber: die Dämpfung fühlt sich anders an als auf der Ekolite - irgendwie dichter und ich muss mir trotzdem nichts unter die Knie legen wie bei der Manduka doch schon öfter nötig.
Die Jade hält also was die Beschreibung verspricht - sie ist eine ideale Matte für Profis oder Fortgeschrittene, die einen aktiven Yogastil praktizieren, die Wert auf Nachhaltigkeit legen und keine künstlichen Materialien wünschen. Ich bin gespannt wie sie sich im täglichen Langzeittest erweist.
