back on the mat // #youphoriayoga

Since marathon training began (and since it has ceased to exist) I haven’t been on my yoga mat nearly as much as I’d prefer. Like, hardly at all. [insert frown face]

But I have had one chance to ground myself on my mat with Marni Task at Cleveland Yoga.

Since I haven’t been on my mat much as of recent, I decided to take a Vinyasa Class, sans heat. Well, sans HOT heat; because it was definitely still warm.

I’ve taken for granted that time spent on my mat — that time where the sun is shining through the windows and heating the room; that time when I am surrounded by strangers, breathing in unison; that time when the only thing I have to worry about is being in that very moment, in that very pose.

But there is always a LOT of sweat — even in the non-heated classes. And I learned years ago that a yoga practice isn’t complete without a yoga towel — something to catch the sweat so you aren’t sliding around your mat. My first yoga towel was a yogitoes mat; then I started to use a Manduka towel; and most recently a Youphoria Yoga towel.

I was honestly impressed by the towel. It didn’t need sticky things on the bottom side, like other towels. It just sticks to the mat. Also, it’s common practice to sprinkle water on your towel before the practice even begins to prevent slippage on the towel before you begin to sweat — but I didn’t even need to do that! I was really impressed at how well it works.

It really made for a perfect practice. That and the sunshine and the community. <3 LOVED it. It serves as a reminder that I really need to get back on my mat at least once a week, even if it’s a home-practice.

How do you fit in your yoga practices? And what are your favorite yoga accessories?
