Yoga Blankets and Rugs

Posted on: May 12th, 2010 by

yoga mats and blanketsOften used in conjunction with yoga sticky mats are yoga blankets, such as the Ashtanga rug [pictured here], made of 100% cotton fiber, made in India, sometimes referred to as Mysore rugs. Yoga can be very strenuous and practitioners are bound to perspire, raising the chances of slippery surfaces, resulting in potential injuries or at least disrupted exercises.

Yoga blankets and rugs are tightly woven and their non-slip qualities are activated upon getting wet. These are great when you don’t have a yoga towel, to manage perspiration. Yoga towels are sometimes used in lieu of yoga bolsters, rolled up, for different postures. Be sure to pick up several yoga blankets to keep on hand, as well as a few yoga towels, meditation cushions, and other yoga meditation supplies.
