What the reviewer thought of the Gaiam Thirsty Yoga Hand Towel
I was very impressed with the Gaiam Thirsty Yoga Hand Towel. I brought the Gaiam Thirsty Yoga Hand Towel, which is made from 88% polyester and 12% nylon to a couple of yoga classes. Normally I do not use a Yoga Hand Towel. I usually used a regular hand towel. I thought it did not matter, but boy was I wrong!
“This High Quality Gaiam Yoga Hand Towel helps to prevent slipping and it absorbs the sweat so well that the towel never seems to feel wet! It provides great yoga stability and support.”
The mat alone is not sufficient to prevent slippage due to a sweaty surface. It is essential that people performing yoga can hold their poses without slipping. A yoga towel can make all the difference in helping hands, feet and other body parts to stay in place.
Unlike regular towels, towels for yoga are typically made with non-skid surfaces on both sides, which will prevent the towel from sliding across the floor or off of the yoga mat. Yoga towels also have a longer and thinner rectangular shape compared to regular towels, so they fit on top of yoga mats better. Yoga towels are usually thicker and sturdier than regular towels.
My husband even took it to his workout and loved it because it was super absorbent. His regular hand towel did not even come close to absorbing his sweat like the Gaiam Thirsty Yoga Hand Towel. He ended up buying himself one.
As an author of the book, “The Complete Herbal Guide: A Natural Approach to Healing the Body – Heal Your Body Naturally and Maintain Optimal Health Using Alternative Medicine, Herbals, Vitamins, Fruits and Vegetables I found the Gaiam Thirsty Yoga Hand Towel to be an excellent tool to use when practicing yoga.”
It came quickly, packaged well and when I tried it, what a difference tan using a regular hand towel. The Gaiam yoga towels are a great accessory to use in your practice no matter what type of yoga or Pilates you are doing. It is great for all types of exercising.
