As you know by now I really love going to Pilates. Unfortunately with my crazy schedule I haven't been able to go as often. Although I don't go as much as I'd like to it is still very important for me to be safe and comfortable when I am there. I am not as strong as I used to be so in order to maximize my workout I want to minimize my worries.
One of the biggest worries I have when I am at Pilates is slipping on the mat. When I am doing a plank or downward dog my hands get slippery and they start to slide away from me. When all of my weight is on my hands and feet it is critical that I don't slip and fall. I know I am not high off the ground, but there is always the possibility of twisting or spraining something!
When I got the opportunity to try out the Youphoria Yoga Mat I was so excited. In the past I have reviewed a Youphoria Yoga Towel and I loved it!
When I got to Pilates I paired my new mat with the yoga towel. I didn't slip once. My feet had a very good grip on the towel & mat. So did my hands. I was impressed that the yoga towel didn't slip on the mat and that my hands and feet weren't slipping either!
In addition to that I noticed that the mat is super soft. It is very comfortable to stand, sit, and lay down on. All of which is important when doing Pilates! Sometimes mats are extremely thin and I feel as though I am laying right on the hard wood flooring. However that was not the case with this yoga mat! It wasn't too fluffy either! My feet didn't sink in to the point where I could barely move. It was a perfect balance of soft and hard.
I chose the pink mat because it matches the towel I had gotten however it comes in many different colors!
