Equipment matters. Having the right gear can motivate you to maintain (or re-start!) your yoga practice, and keeps you feeling safe and confident while you stretch.
The most important accessories for hot yoga are definitely mats and towels. And with most yoga studios ditching the rentals (at least temporarily) you'll want to invest in a solid, unslippery, non-stinky place to stand. At Home, we have 3 favorite options when it comes to your personal floorspace.
The Tried & True: WAYmat
We have carried the WAYmat since we opened, and we love it. It's soft, it grips, it's nice and big and perfect for relaxing on during savasana. Hygiene is a value that WAYmat holds, and it's why they are made to be 100% machine washable and dryer safe. Not only that, but you can use your mat for all kinds of things besides yoga: Like lounging on the beach? One student even had her son sleep on one when he was working on not wetting the bed!
NEW: Nomadix Towels & Towel Ponchos
They say it’s “The Only Towel You Need” because it’s so versatile. This is a high performance product and the company is committed to sustainability. Nomadix towels are made from certified post-consumer recycled material to make sure we use our existing resources, instead of harvesting new resources from the planet. Check out their Towel Ponchos, perfect to throw on as a coverup after a sweaty yoga sesh! These are the prints we have in stock:
LOVE OUR RENTALS? Kulae Mats
Kulae mats are what we used to offer as our mat rentals! We love them especially because of their "closed cell" technology, which means they will NOT get stanky, because sweat just rolls off of them instead of soaking in! If you are all about sustainability and conscious of what products touch your body, this mat is for you. These mats are 100% recyclable and photodegradable composite material, completely free of PVC, latex, rubber and allergens -- yes! You cannot overstretch these mats as they are designed to withstand lots of use, without every compromising their shape and durability. Plus, they are *super* lightweight and easy to clean. We've got these colors in stock:
All of these mats are excellent options for both home use and studio use - and instead of paying shipping fees and waiting for delivery (snoooooze), you can just snag one right from the studio! Show up Saturday to shop for a mat, and SO much more...
