Shopping Sunday: A Great Yoga Rug

As many friends know, I often do yoga, four or more times each week. The style I practice involves a very hot room and a lot of motion — not as hot as Bikram yoga but much more energetic. Result: buckets of sweat (if you are me).

I have been on a quest to find the right implements to practice with. Yoga mats that are billed as “absorbent” get overloaded very easily, and the standard “YogiToes” towel is quickly soaked through.

Then, I saw a guy with a yoga rug and things clicked for me.

I recently purchased an inexpensive rug and all has been joy.

It’s the Yoga Accessories Cotton Yoga Rug.

The yoga rug is exactly the width of a standard yoga mat, and just about 2 inches longer. Best of all, it is absorbent as anything. I get through an entire class without needing an extra towel.

If you practice hot yoga and are looking for something that can handle the sweat, check out a yoga rug. They are inexpensive (about $25) and a joy to practice on. It feels very natural. Note that you do need a mat underneath, but even a 3mm one should do fine.

  1. A good yoga mat is essential for anyone who practices the
    art of yoga. The yoga mats are mostly used to bring an improvement in your
    balance and posture. Mostly asana are strongly deep-rooted with your posture,
    so humanizing your posture and balance would also help in improving your
    health. Yoga mats are less risk of injury or accidents. Thanks for sharing
