Ever wondered how people in India yoga practiced yoga before the modern yoga mats were invented? Then this is your answer: they used a cotton yoga mat or 'yoga rug'.
On this cotton yoga mat you'll practice the traditional Indian way. The yogamat is woven from 100% solid unbleached and certified eco cotton.
A cotton yogamat is especially recommended for Power Yoga, Ashtanga, and other hot yoga styles because the cotton mats absorps moisture and thereby provides extra grip. The mat can be used on top of a regular yogamat (recommended on slippery or cold floors), but it can also be used simply used on the floor.
Moisten your cotton yogamat a little bit with a spray bottle to start your first sun salutation with optimum grip.
