Iâ€™ve known a few yoga practitioners in my time, but I never quite realized how involved things can get with the various yoga props such dedicated individuals utilize while exercising, stretching, and posturing! Oh, Iâ€™ve been aware that yoga can be rather rigorous, even though most of us, when we think of yoga, picture a person meditating in a lotus position, right? I had known about meditation cushions, yoga benches, and yoga mats, for sure; but I had never known about yoga paws, for instance.
Yoga paws, for those who donâ€™t know, are sort of like rubberized, fingerless gloves [sort of like workout gloves], worn on the hands and feet, used to help hold more advanced yoga postures where hands and feet are liable to slide, even on â€œstickyâ€ yoga mats, or perhaps a hardwood floor, where bare feet would otherwise grip, but could slip due to sweat. The hot yoga towel, like the one pictured here, will help absorb sweat, and assist in maintaining your grip.

Yoga Paws, also sometimes referred to as yoga gloves, are padded grips worn on the hands and feet, and are used in lieu of yoga mats, so as to avoid slipping from yoga poses, or stretching.Â Â Yoga paws are a great way to â€œtake your yoga with youâ€ when traveling, when itâ€™s not practical to lug around bulky yoga mats.
And although you might be thinking about purchasing one of several, available yoga kits, which due cover your yoga mat, block, and stretching straps, if you travel; youâ€™d do well to get yourself a set of yoga paws; theyâ€™ll fit nicely into your suitcase, along with your yoga fitness balls, which are much less cumbersome than dumbells.
Yoga paws are much like workout gloves in appearance, and help control moisture on your hands and feet, as theyâ€™re absorbent, as well as comfortable and lightweight.
