I still miss practicing yoga regularly. Although it’s something that I do for myself, the whole family benefits because yoga makes me happy. You know the saying: when mom is happy, the whole family is happy. I’ve mentioned before how I sweat like crazy and really need help sticking poses. I’ve tried just having a hand towel on the side to wipe my sweat. Well, often times, that’s just not enough. Thank goodness for yoga towels.
I received the Aurorae® Micro-Fiber Yoga Towel to review. (Disclosure: Sponsored post.) I’ve reviewed the Classic Mat before and really liked it. Big B likes practicing yoga on it as well (more like playing, but okay). I can say that the towel has the same quality that I’ve come to expect from Aurorae®. The towel is made of microfiber. Now, microfiber is not new to me. I’ve been using microfiber rags for years. Also, some of Little B’s cloth diaper inserts are microfiber. I am very familiar with microfiber’s absorption capabilities and I had high hopes for this towel.
I placed the towel on the classic mat and did a few poses. I stayed on downward dog for a while and started to perspire. I have to say that my hands didn’t move or slide at all. I kept practicing for a few more minutes and decided to take the towel off. I started doing poses on the mat and then flowed to downward dog. There was a big difference. I really had to concentrate to keep my hands from slipping. In my review of the Classic mat I mentioned that I washed the mat to help with slippage. As much as I like the Classic mat, I still have to overlay a towel to keep me from slipping. This towel certainly did the trick.
My favorite features of the Micro-Fiber Yoga Towel
- Slip resistant
- Easy to maintain, just toss in the washing machine
- Well made
What I like about yoga towels, and particularly the Aurorae® towel, is that it helps absorb perspiration so that I can stick my poses. Although the towel is just an accessory, it helps tremendously in how I practice. The price point is $24.95. It is more expensive than other yoga towels on the market, and cheaper than others. I have only used one other yoga towel (given as a gift), so can only compare it to that one. My first towel is not microfiber so I don’t know if paying $24.95 for a microfiber towel is a good value. However, I can say that this microfiber towel is more absorbent than my other towel. The other towel also had little silicone beads on the underside to help it stick to the mat. The Aurorae® towel doesn’t have the beads so sometimes it gets loose from the mat when I jump. I think the beads would make this towel absolutely perfect. My overall impression is that the Aurorae® yoga towel is a very good towel and that it functions as it should.
