NamaSTAY Hot Yoga Towel Review

I am so excited to be writing my first Hot Yoga product review in, ahem, a very long time. But this towel rocks! I just had to share.

The NamaSTAY Non Slip Yoga Towel

 
I love when I find a product that fits seamlessly into my practice without becoming a distraction. I honestly would rather go without the accessories than have something that I have to continually adjust and fix and keep an eye on while I practice. This is why I think it is totally worth it to invest in quality yoga props, to find a few key pieces that work so well you don't even notice them while you're practicing but you can't imagine being without them ( i.e. clothing that doesn't ride or chafe, a mat that is the right size, a block that does it all). I would definitely put the NamaSTAY towel into this category of quality and usefulness. 
 
 
The color options are terrific and varied and the texture of the towel is plush and soft. The microfiber material is absorbent and becomes even softer when wet. Also, like most yoga practice towels, the NamaSTAY towel grips even better when it is wet. This is especially helpful to know if you practice Hot Vinyasa styles, where you are at times moving between yoga poses at a faster pace. It also makes a difference in poses like Downward Facing Dog and arm balances, where you are using your hands on your mat to support some or all your body weight. 
 
 
My lululemon "The Mat," which is slightly bigger than the average yoga mat, fits perfectly into the sleeves at either end of the Medium Size NamaSTAY towel (they have a handy sizing chart on their website to help you find the best fit for your mat). The name NamaSTAY is spot on as this towel truly stays in place and, if you're like me and you like to get your sweat on, you know how important and helpful this feature is. A good, absorbent towel that doesn't slide around is necessary for safety during Hot Yoga practice.

If you are looking for a product that will support your yoga practice and not distract you from the goodness that comes with a sweet, sweaty flow, then I recommend you get a NamaSTAY yoga towel … or two!

Keep it Sweaty,

Mindful Monday Recap: The Internet is So NOT Over

Before I started this post today I asked myself: Should I even bother? And why blog in general? Because according to Prince, this internet thing is soooo over. The answer: Yes I should bother. Blogging is totally worth it. I completely disagree with Mr. Prince.

And I have proof. This internet thing is so NOT over. Thanks to all (including those I have not mentioned below) for keeping it alive with such thoughtful and inspired posts.

 

Love this post from Krystina McIntyre on elephantournal.com. “Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned." How to have compassion for ALL … even if they piss you off. Seriously though, this is well worth your time.

In your day to day life, it is easy to notice, and even get caught up in, the things that well, suck. These sucky things reveal to you a clear contrast of what it is that you do want to live, see, do, or be. And while those contrasts are wonderful teachers, this article takes a different approach. Cultivate an abundance of positive aspects with 50 Things to Love About Life That Are Free.

Have you heard of positive picketing? Love demonstrations? This post and video made me smile. The message I received: What if we could love our jobs as much as these lululemon devotees do?

Another beautifully written post from the ever-lovely Kathryn Budig: When in Doubt – Breathe. She had me at "I have the best job in the world."

This posted piqued my interest as a hot yogi and mommy. From the momlogic blog: No Joke: Mom Brings 4-Year-Old to Hot Yoga Class. I really appreciate this thoughtful post as well as the included safety tips. Thanks to Yoga Dork for turning my on to it.
