Whether you're enjoying some yoga out on the beach or during a Bikram hot yoga class, having the right accessories for your session can lead to a better yoga experience. In order to keep your mat dry and slip-free while perfecting your poses, a good, cute yoga towel is a must.
When you're sweating in a yoga class, you can tell the difference between a regular bath or beach towel than when you use a yoga-specific towel. Most of the yoga towels are made with moisture-wicking materials that make it much easier to hit those tough yoga positions without having to worry about slipping or sliding. From personal experience, doing hot yoga wouldn't be possible without having a towel that helps you go through the yoga flow faster and easier.
If you're just now getting into yoga at public gym classes or another studio that provides their own mats, you can bring along a yoga towel to minimize the contact you have with unwanted germs. The towels are perfect for a hot yoga studio where sweating may be impossible to avoid with the hot temperatures. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced yogi, adding a towel to your yoga gear collection might make your yoga classes more enjoyable and care-free.
