Yoga is a high-energy physical practice that involves stretching and strengthening certain body parts. Practitioners use a series of yoga postures to increase flexibility, calm the mind and
connect with their innermost selves. Stretching to increase flexibility is a key part of the yoga practice, and many people supplement their regular yoga practice with other types of physical
training. To get the most out of your yoga practice, you’ll need the right equipment. You can stretch on a carpet, but some people prefer to use a real mat for better traction. You can also
dry off your sweaty feet after a yoga session with a towel or cloth after your practice. Alternatively, you can simply avoid getting sweaty in the first place.

Many people have different opinions on what makes for the ideal mat. One popular idea is that a yoga mat should be thick enough to stand on without falling through. Others prefer extra
grip for their asanas so they can hold their body weight without slipping. Although these ideas are nice in theory, a yoga mat is most useful when it absorbs sweat from your body during
exercise. A towel or rag will slip and sag with your perspiration and cause you to lose your balance and posture during yoga. A mat that grips your body securely during exercises prevents
you from losing control and injuring yourself in the process.

Yogis also like to use mats that are antimicrobial and resistant to bacteria, mold and mildew. Most yoga instructors recommend staying away from non-sticky yoga mats because they don’t allow for good grip during asanas. However, if you must use a non-sticky mat, some recommend coating it with
petroleum jelly or cooking oil to keep you from sliding around and injuring yourself. You can also try using ghee or a similar substance if you have serious concerns about bacteria
growth on your mat. I would personally avoid using anything but traditional materials for my mat if I had the choice since I’m concerned about possible chemical or radiation
contamination from non-traditional sources.

Equally important to note is that yoga mats typically cost very little money if you buy enough for several classes per week. Most classes last between 20 minutes and 90 minutes depending
on the style and instructor of the class. The average class includes 10 postures (asanas) which means each person takes 10 minutes to complete their yoga session on their mat. Your mat
shouldn’t take up too much space either— most mats are less than 1 square foot in size so they won’t take up much space in your home either. Alternatively, if you want more space for
additional items in your home, you could also invest in some inexpensive wall hooks as another place to hang items like towels or aprons for easy access.

There are many benefits associated with having proper equipment for your yoga class such as reducing strain on your joints and increasing flexibility. In addition, using a towel or rag
instead of a mat leaves your sweaty feet exposed to common household bacteria while reducing cost per class. Instead, get yourself an inexpensive yoga mat!
