Best Yoga Towels

Many people who practice Yoga on a regular basis prefer to use a Yoga Towel laid over a Yoga Mat. A yoga towel can provide moisture absorption plus a little extra cushion, especially during hot yoga. Moreover, it provides some extra grip and slip resistance. It’s much easier to clean and wash a yoga towel vs. cleaning a yoga mat.

Why Should You Buy A Yoga Towel

A Yoga mat towel is a must if you will be practicing Bikram or “Hot Yoga”. Doing Yoga at nearly 100 degrees will really make you sweat so having a superabsorbent yoga towel will be very useful.

Using a Yoga Towel is as simple as laying it over your Yoga Mat.

Here are some things to look for when buying a new Yoga Towel

Moisture Absorption (Microfiber is good at absorbing moisture)

Thickness and Cushioning (Yoga Mats are pretty thin, a little extra cushion is great, especially for a beginner)

Size (Most Yoga Towels and Yoga Mats are standard sizes but measure you Yoga Mat first so your Yoga Towel will be the same size)

Grip

Durability (A fast drying yoga towel is a good yoga towel.)

Price (If you plan on using your yoga towel daily or weekly I recommend buying something that is higher quality.)
