Yoga Poses & Equipment : Ashtanga Yoga Mats


Hi, my name is Ashley Ludman from Seaside
Yoga, here to review Ashtangamats. This is mat that I’m sitting on comparable to a Manduka
Mat. It has good traction and durability. It’s about 3/16th of an inch thick, maybe
a little thicker even, but it has good staying power. It’s not too sticky, so that when you
are transitioning from pose to pose, you can move efficiently. Also in Ashtanga, you may
want to consider a cotton practice rug that goes on top of the yoga mat which will help
to absorb sweat if you are a vigorous practitioner, you’ll probably find that you’re, that you’re
sweating quite often in your yoga practice. So any type of sticky mat, top it’s mat with
an Ashtanga cotton practice rug on top. That practice rug you can toss in the washing machine
after every practice and dry it either on the line outside or throw it in the dryer
and they should stay pretty well. So those are my recommendations for an Ashtanga mat.
practitioner.
