I purchased my first yoga towel a couple of years ago after growing weary of the beach towel I had been toting around to classes. I am a simple yogi and try not to buy into the latest trends in fear of becoming (gasp!) … mainstream. The allure of the slip-resistant nubs on the Yogitoes Towel proved too much for me and I’ve used it ever since. That is until I experienced the Manduka eQua Yoga Towel.
The Manduka eQua Yoga Towel is sprayed with a mist of water before your yoga practice and holds like no other to your yoga mat. I have read some reviews that claim the Manduka eQua Yoga Towel is best paired with one of the Manduka Yoga Mats but I used it with my Ol’ Trusty (non-Manduka) yoga mat too and it worked just as well for me.
The feel of the Manduka eQua Towel is like suede and can even be used as a blanket in savasana. Since I’ve used the Manduka eQua Yoga Mat Towel in my regular Bikram and Hot Yoga classes as well, I was concerned with the absorption and holding power in Downward-Facing Dog. Not only did my fingers grip and allow me to focus my grounding on my index and thumb joints, my feet were planted solidly the first time. No adjusting necessary.
This is a great yoga towel and I would rate it 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.
