Commonly asked customer question: I am constantly slipping on my Yoga mat in class. Which mat has the best traction?
If you don’t already know about the Mysore Practice Rug, look no more. Just lay a Mysore Practice Rug over your mat and you will find your solution to slipping, ta da!
Our popular Cotton Yoga Mat was originally created by Barefoot Yoga co. in 1998. It was inspired by the heat producing practice of Ashtanga Yoga and our teacher Sri K Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India, who insisted we practice on this cotton rug each and every day we were there.
These Cotton Yoga Mats do the trick of preventing slipping. They actually get better with moisture, imagine that!
They’re easily washable in a normal washing machine (wash cold and hang to dry). You can even bring your rug to class a bit damp for optimal traction). They are made with chemical free dyes and are 100% biodegradable.
Arguably, Mysore Rugs are one of the most eco-friendly yoga mat options available. We’ve achieved what many say is the best textured surface for yoga through many years of practice and working with our weavers in India to produce the highest quality and most beautiful selection available. See our huge selection online here or visit the many stores and studios who carry our rugs .
You will love the feel of this traditional cotton yoga mat under your feet as you practice Trikonasana and Downward Dog while staying grounded and present with your breath.
As always, enjoy the Yoga.
