This holiday season has been super busy for me! Even when we’re all preparing for the holidays, there’s always time for yoga!
To gear up for the holiday season, I’d like to present a quick review and GIVEAWAY with Namastay Yoga Towel!
The Baptiste studio that I recently joined, Be Luminous Yoga, conducts all their Vinyasa courses in 85 degree heated rooms. The heat is perfect for promoting stretching and for loosening your joints and muscles. There are beginner to advance courses but you can always make the practice your own! Afterwards, you can count on the floor being a sweaty mess!
Here’s how it went:
I received a size MEDIUM towel. The towel fit snugly around my Lululemon Tapis Mat. I was very pleased with the fit as it looked very snug and clean as if it were made for my mat! I found it best to fit the towel over your mat prior to the beginning of class. Oftentimes when I use other mats (i.e. Yogitoes or Manduka), I have to lay the towel out later because it is too slippery for the start of my practice). Namastay seems to work from beginning to end!
As we started our practice in downward dog, I could feel how secure my hands and feet were gripping to the towel. I did not need to pre-soak the towel like I usually do with my Manduka or Yogitoes yoga mat towels. Throughout practice, no matter how much I sweated (and I sweated A LOT), my Namastay Towel remained very grippy and absorbent. Towards the end of practice in Savasana (corpse pose), I noticed how comfortable the microfiber felt on my back. I also really appreciated that it worked as a barrier between my back and the mat to prevent Bacne!
I was totally digging that my Namastay needed ZERO re-adjustment throughout class and gave me excellent grip regardless what pose I was in during my practice.
I also love the Sky Blue color and OM symbol! The embroidered symbol doubles as a reminder and my drishti. You get my drisht? Heh. My colleagues were also complementing on the fit and color of the towel once they saw it. Nonetheless, my towel as a hit for my practice and aesthetically.
The towels also come in other bright fun colors (pictured are the Charcoal, Purple, Sky Blue, Coral and Ruby)!
I am absolutely a huge FAN of Namastay and think everyone should give them a try!
