Cotton Yoga Rug
- Product Review (submitted on October 12, 2012):
These are great yoga rugs.
Many Ashtanga Yoga Rugs don't have the texture necessary for good grip, however, this one does. At the same time, the weight of this rug is substantial compared to some others -- I believe this is a reasonable trade off because the rug has traction and doesn't wrinkle up during practice.
I bought one about a year ago and am now getting two more so that I always have a fresh rug ready. I machine wash in cold and hang dry, and I expect many good years of use out of the one that I already have.
If you are new to using an Astanga rug, I think that they work best if you spritz a little water on the rug before practice. I use the rug over a travel sticky mat et voila, perfection!
Hopefully this is helpful in making a decision on which cotton yoga rug to buy.
