Yoga Mat

Frequently Asked Questions...

Can I wash my danskin yoga mat?

It would be great if anyone could answer this question for me. Would my Danskin yoga mat survive a cycle in the washing machine? Or is that just a really bad idea? Or should I just run some water and some sort of cleaner over it?

I appreciate any advice. :)


Answer:

I have always just hand washed mine. First rinse it off with warm water in the tub. Then put the stopper in the tub and fill it with enough water to cover the mat. Add 1/2 cup white vinegar to the water. Let it sit 30 minutes. Drain the water, rinse the mat. Wring out the mat, wipe it off with a towel and hang it to dry.

Vinegar is a great deodorizer and the vinegar smell dissipates as it dries.

Buying A Yoga Mat

Tips on buying a yoga mat

Yoga is aptly called as such because the word refers to the union of the physical with the mental. Yoga is actually a unification of the body, the mind and the spiritual aspects of man. This is achieved through the execution of the asana or the yoga poses.

While people would be quick to look at yoga only in terms of the difficult poses, the asana is not really everything there is to yoga. The different poses only make up one of the eight types or yoga disciplines. And while the asana can be difficult to execute especially for people who are new to yoga, it can be learned and perfected in due time and with proper determination.

Yoga may be thought of as merely a series of postures guaranteed to stretch the limbs of a person but the discipline of yoga is more addressed to the mental capacity and power of the person. The asana helps in achieving relaxation but it is really mind power that wins in the end.

A person who practices yoga will have more power to achieve a peaceful existence through the unification of his body, soul and mind. He can achieve this not only through the poses but also through proper breathing methods.

People who witness yoga exercises have a good laugh especially when they hear yoga chants. However, this is also among the methods used by those who practice yoga to achieve a higher level of concentration. But since yoga basically makes use of the different poses to achieve union of the body, mind and spirit, the follower should always arm himself with a yoga mat.

A yoga mat is in fact one of the very basic and most important equipment that a person practicing yoga should invest in. Some poses can be very challenging to the physique that a person needs the mat to serve as cushion and protection against impact.

The poses can make a yoga followed sweat especially if he is into Bikram or hot yoga so it is very important to keep himself in check against slips occurring from too much sweating.

Having a yoga mat will also create a sense of space between the people doing the yoga poses. Yoga can be done anywhere and no matter if the poses are being done in the gym or elsewhere, a person has to have his own yoga mat for purposes of safety, hygiene and to mark his spot.

So how does one get a yoga mat? Will any mat do or doe sit have to be a specially-made mat for yoga? There are different types of yoga mats depending of course on the type of yoga the person is practicing.

The Ashtanga mat are very good not only for those doing Ashtanga yoga but also for those who are into hot yoga because these type of mats are made of cotton and are characterized by tractions that can control sweat and moisture.

People who do yoga anywhere they go should invest in a travel mat for yoga as these are very light and can easily fit inside their luggage. To those who want to buy only one mat for all purposes then try the universal mat which also comes in a deluxe quality.

Those who have been doing yoga poses for a long time however vouch for utopian mats which they say are every resilient and can carry the weight of any person no matter what yoga pose he is attempting to perfect.

Beginners can invest in a mat that is less expensive but can be already used for their yoga poses. Investing in a good yoga mat is advisable though because they can be used not only for the yoga poses but also for meditation.

Whatever type of yoga mat a person has, he should make sure these are regularly cleaned with water and soap. It must also be dried either by using towel or air to keep it odor-free.
