Pilates is a major part of my life. My mom and I try to go three times a week. Lately I have been slacking though. It has been hard for me to make time with student teaching and such. However, I got the chance to try out this awesome yoga towel from Youphoria!
When doing Pilates or Yoga being safe is one of the most important things. It is easy to get hurt because you are pushing yourself to be more flexible and into positions that your body isn't used to. Sometimes your mats get slippery because you are sweating a lot. Sometimes your mat is just slippery in general.
This yoga towel helps you stay safe. It prevents slipping and sliding all over your mat. Not only does this help keep you safe but it helps increase your workout. When I am worried about slipping or when I feel myself slipping I have to stop what I am doing and readjust myself. Because this towel is so slip-resistant I don't have to break my yoga pose (most often plank) to fix my position. It helps me maintain my pose longer and maximize my workout.
I go to a pilates studio, so I share my mat with the various women who come to the same studio as me. After every workout we wash it down but I know that a lot of people are lazy and not all of their sweat and bacteria gets washed off the mats. This towel helps with this. I use it on top of the mat so that I know the only germs I am directly touching are my own! I still wash the mat underneath but this towel helps protect me from bacteria.
The third thing I loved about this towel is how absorbent it is. I sweat a lot. If I am running, doing pilates, anything. I am a sweater. I used to have to wipe my face on my sleeve or arm but now I use this towel. It absorbs the sweat quickly and dries just as quickly. There are no wet stains on it that could embarrass me! (Yay!)
