Skidless yoga towels, also known as non slip towels or hot yoga towels, are yoga mat sized towels that have the ability to stay put on top of your mat as well as under your palms once they start to perspire. If you often do power yoga, vinyasa flow, or hot yoga, you may have noticed that you can work up quite a sweat. Yoga towels absorb the moisture and keep it from getting onto the rubber mat. Slippery mats can be dangerous, especially in more advanced inversions!
What makes skidless towels stay put? Some companies, like yogitoes, use little rubber dots on the bottom side of the towel for added traction. Others use extra-absorbent microfiber material to take away the slippy-ness from your hands and feet before your practice is compromised.
