Cotton yoga rug-I've joined the grown up Astangis .



Check out my gorgeous cotton yoga rug. I have a lot of mats at home and in my studio, but none of them the cotton type. Living in London I get hot and sweaty in my yoga practise, but never felt the need to use one of these-Here at the Shala in Mysore the heat is intense-this is both a help and hindrance in my yoga practise...I have been able to slip into poses that have been difficult for me in the past-but also have found myself slipping on my sticky mat, when I dont want to....So I gave this mat a dummy run yesterday and absolutely loved it....I felt more stable especially in the back bending-it helped with the jumping through ( I use that term loosely :-) and I loved the cool texture under my hands....so I'm a convert ....and back in London where its currently -11 it can double up as a blankie.

  1. Where did you get this rug, was it at the shala store? I'm thinking about picking one up while I'm here, though my manduka equa towel works fine too.

  4. You may want to soak your rug in salt water to set the colours, as otherwise you may find your hands end up the same colour as your mat.
