After years of apprehension and just plain fear, I finally went to my first hot yoga class two months ago. I walked into Y7 Studio with a million questions. Would I pass out? How sweaty would I get? Does it skew more toward bearable or awful? The list goes on. Spoiler alert: Hot yoga is incredible. Since getting hooked on it, I’ve been on the hunt for a non-slip yoga mat and yoga towel because well, I’m a yogi now.
Here’s the deal: There are so many yoga mats on the market. LIKE, SO MANY. Plus — yogis, prepare to cringe — aren’t yoga towels and hand towels basically the same thing? So, why should I pay extra just for something to slap the word “yoga” in front of it? Leave it to Gaiam to give me the answers.
These towels are a game-changer. After an entire class went by without having to adjust my towel (truly a first for me in my very long hot yoga practice), I wondered why every other yoga mat brand isn’t doing the same.
