Yogitoes Skidless ® Towel Mat
For the past week, there has been an array of colours at That’s Yoga @ Damas from the yoga mats of the practitioners. One of the practitioners had ordered a shipment of Yogitoes Skidless Towel Mats from the manufacturer in US and had sold the mats to the members at That’s Yoga at a very special price. The Yogitoes mats have been taken up like hot cakes and when I was there yesterday evening, there were only 3 mats left unsold.
What is the difference between a Yogitoes towel mat and other regular yoga mats? Well, the most significant difference is that it is a towel mat made of a super-absorbent microfibre material (80% polyester and 20% nylon) that absorbs moisture. The Yogitoes towel mat is placed over a regular mat and the tiny silicone nubs on the underside of the mat provide traction to enable you to have a better grip to prevent you from sliding.
If you are using the yoga mat provided by the yoga centre, you never know who had been using the mat before you and the mat is normally cleaned by just wiping it with a spray of water. I have seen practitioners placing a towel on their mats and the Yogitoes towel mat will provide a better alternative for a hygienic layer between you and the mat. It is lightweight and can be folded up and place in your bag ready for travel anywhere.
The towel mat is easy to clean, either by hand wash or machine wash and tumble dry.
It is a multi-purpose tool as you can even use the reverse side of the towel mat to stimulate pressure points on both the hands and feet.
