I recently invested in a new yoga mat- The Mat by Lululemon. For some people, you either love Lululemon for it's pricey goodness or you hate it because of it's pricey goodness. I can't argue that Lululemon is the the Pottery Barn of yoga gear, but I have to say, everything I've purchased has been WELL worth the price and great quality.
I decided to buy a new mat because 1. my current, Ross's, mat wasn't giving me enough support and 2. I was tired of washing my yoga mat towel 4 times a week. So I invested in a mat that was recommended to me by numerous people and especially designed for hot yoga. I don't know about you guys, but when I take a hot class, I tend to end my class in a pool of sweat- seriously my shins sweat, which I didn't think was even possible. After my work trip to Boston last week, I was welcomed by a lovely package... my new mat had arrived and just in time for my class Friday morning. So, I gave it a shot and I must say, this mat did not disappoint. I will admit that it was my hottest class, but I did sweat a good amount and I didn't slip once. In fact, I even got stuck to my mat at one point. I'm officially hooked. All I need to bring to class now is this mat, a hand towel and a smile and I couldn't be happier. This mat really does kick some serious asana.
Manduka eQua Mat Towel which I also have and it is absolutely amazing.
