Happy holidays, yogis! This year we thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite gift items. These presents will serve your mind, body and spirit. Also, many of them are gifts that keep on giving!
1. Jade Travel Mat
Jade is everything you want in a yoga mat – cool colors, incredible grip, great comfort and eco-friendly. Jade mats are made sustainably with natural rubber tapped from rubber trees, a renewable resource and unlike other mats contains no PVC, EVA or other synthetic rubber and are made in the United States in compliance with all US environmental, labor and consumer protection laws. And, Jade plants a tree for every mat sold – with over ONE MILLION trees planted so far.

The Jade Travel Mat folds up to fit easily into your luggage and is 24" wide and available in two lengths, 68" and 74" (black is only available in 68"), and a variety of colors and weighs just over 3 pounds.
