I have recently been loving hot yoga. The one problem is I feel like it comes with a new lineup of gear requirements. Here's what I checked out:
Sounds kind of funny, right? A bathroom towel should double as a yoga towel - that's what I thought anyhow. Then, my first class, all the Lululemon clad Queen Anne women were sporting perfect yoga outfits and accessories including yoga towels, headbands, and more. Here are a couple I checked out:
YogaRat 100% Microfiber Yoga towel for $29.99on Amazon.com and the Yogitoes Skidless Yoga Towel for $51 (down from $64) on Amazon.com. I wound up going for the YogaRat towel because of price. I also bought a Manduka eQua Hand Towel for $15.28... I actually bought this first on accident because I ordered wrong : o/.
Then there's the mat. I've had a yoga mat since college - one that I loved. Now it's covered in dust and even a little mold (yikes!) from moving and bad storage (shows what a long hiatus I took from yoga). Matt's are expensive. I wound up buying a YogaAccessories Yoga Mat for $20. I would have loved a Manduka yoga mat, but I just can't see spending $72 on a mat.
