I received a yoga towel from Topia Towel a little while ago. At first I wasn’t sure how much I would need it – I figured, I’ve got a yoga mat already, why use a towel?
Turns out I use it all the time.
It’s great because it has a rubbery base that stops any slipping, and the top layer is so soft and comfortable to practice on. I use it a lot on carpet (because who wants carpet burns when practicing yoga, am I right?), but also at the yoga studio if I want to add a bit more layering on my mat; or if I forget my mat, and want a bit of protection from all the germs on the rented mat (mmm someone else’s sweat…).
I’ll even take it to sit on at a picnic – it’s perfect. Or I’ll lay it on top of my outdoor yoga mat for a little extra protection.
I have tight hips and a bony bum so sometimes I need a little extra cushioning under my glutes when I sit. The towel works great as a makeshift cushion – I’ll just fold up it & then in half and slide it under my bum (which is a lot easier than having to carrying around a yoga block or cushion). It’s made out of microfiber and is light weight, so it’s easy to tote around.
These mats are really absorbant, so you don’t have to worry if you get sweaty. They dry really easily too.
Plus they’re also machine washable. How cool is that?!
And they’re beautiful designs and colours! I highly recommend getting one 🙂
