best grippy towel for both normal and sweaty yoga!

Reviewed by Namase from Washington, DC on Friday, August 8, 2014
This is the BEST yoga towel, and the absolute best price I've seen for it. I use it to completely stick (yet somehow glide across) in both sweat free yoga and hot vinyasa flow classes where I pour sweat. After extensive research I went with Manduka for my upgraded mat (Pro Lite) and towel, and am so happy I did. Before, I was using a beach towel in my sweaty classes, and while it worked, it still bunched and was rough on my feet, and hard to transition in poses. This took my yoga to a whole new level! It sticks wonderfully to my Manduka mat, and also works great on my cheap Gaiam, which itself is very slippery, but with the towel makes it an awesome mat (I would suggest adding this towel to your practice if you don't want to upgrade your mat yet, but are looking for a slip proof solution!).

Hint: after placing the towel on the mat, spray or pour some water where your hands and feet would be in downward dog and press into the towel, this will make it budge proof on any mat (really an absolute must to get the most out of the towel if you won't be sweating on it).

I purchased the towel in Thrive-a beautiful bright, deep forest green (brighter than in the picture, but in a good way) and Swoon-a gorgeous coral (less pink than in the picture).

Size wise it covers my Manduka Pro Lite perfectly, and covers my cheaper mats with extra towel to spare. It is thinner than I expected, but that does not affect it's ability. I wash cold and it hang dries very quickly.
