Video review of Yoga mat with integrated towel (Palm design).
August 28, 2015, Chicago, Illinois
“I’m a yoga teacher in Kansas City and on YouTube(Yoga Upload) and I’ve tried a lot of different yoga mats and towels. This yoga mat (Palm Design) was sent to me by FitLifestyleCo and these are my honest opinions. After using the mat consistently to practice and teach for over 2 months, I’ve discovered both the positive and negative aspects of this product.
1)Travel-friendly – It’s lightweight enough to carry around easily and it comes with a carrying strap as well.
2)Easy to clean – This mat can be thrown in the washing machine (on gentle cycle) then hung to dry. I’ve washed it a few times and it has retained the quality and texture (so far).
3) Non-slippery and very grippy – For hot yoga and sweaty yoga practices (or other workouts) – this is perfect!!! My hands and feet sweat so downward dog, planks, etc. are challenging on a slippery mat. The grip on this one gets better the more moisture you have on your skin. However, this might not work as well if you don’t sweat at all. I need to spray it with some water at the start of my practice (when my hands are still dry) but then it gets better after I warm up and start sweating. I teach and practice a lot of hot yoga (Bikram style) and heated vinyasa classes and I find this to be the best mat for these styles.
4)Fuss-free – The mat stays flat and does not bunch up or curl at the edges. Also, it stays put and does not slide around on hardwood floors.
5)Aesthetically-pleasing – The design is beautiful! My students have told me they immediately feel relaxed when they walk in the studio and see my mat in front!
1) Mat thinness – If you practice on very hard surfaces, this might not provide enough cushioning for your joints. I find that I need to use another mat under it when I practice on cement floors (very rarely). On hardwood floors (most yoga studios have flooring that have some give) and carpets, I don’t have a problem.
2)Drying time – It takes a while to dry after you take it out of the washing machine. If you plan on using and washing it everyday, you might need an extra “backup” mat.
Overall, this type of mat works perfectly for me and the kind of yoga practice I have. I highly recommend it if you tend to slip on the typical PVC yoga mats. Also, I love the convenience of having just 1 product to use and clean instead of having a separate mat and towel. This is a fantastic yoga mat for me and I enjoy using it very much.”

Why to use the yoga strap? Some people stay away from trying yoga cause they think they are not flexible enough. That is where using yoga strap comes handy, you can gain these benefits:
– Improved flexibility, better balance and form in yoga poses, increased strength and endurance
– Stretching will get easier, gradually you can build up flexibility by moving your arms further on the strap
– Straps are enabling you to grasp limbs that are otherwise too far away. For example if you cannot touch your toes, the strap/belt will help you to bridge that gap.
