So, if you are in a yoga class, a lot of yoga classes especially those really sweaty power yoga type classes, it is so hard to keep that yoga mat sticky. And oftentimes when we're sweating it gets slippery and it's so distracting. Well it's not as easy as it may seem to keep the yoga mat sticky, but I do have a couple of quick suggestions. One, there are many different mats you can try out. If you ask your yoga studio some of them offer demo mats so you can try the different textures and the different materials that they use for yoga mats, and see if maybe there's one that works better than the other. If you already have invested in a yoga mat, there are many different types of towels that you can use that maybe absorb some of the wetness and keep the yoga mat a little sticky. This one is great, it's called Skidless by Yoga Toes. And it's a towel, and as you can see on one side there's little rubber grippers. And there are many different colors, here's purple. I have a black one here. And what you do is you take the sticky side and you place it down on your mat, and you can keep it handy in the front of your mat so when things start getting slippery you just slide it out like this and because they have these nice grippers the mat stays pretty much in its place. It's a really great tool. And that way you have a nice gripping action from the mat to the towel. There are other different forms. There's kind of the wet dry material, you can look in to all of that stuff. I recommend this one. I think they're great, check them out.
