Question about Yoga…

 

Okay. I really love yoga. I went three times already: Monday, Thursday and now today.

One thing that I have a question about while at Yoga. How do you keep your hands/palms from slipping on the yoga mat? My hands are seriously dry, should I moisturize before I go? I don’t want to be slipping even more. I find that I slip very slowly outwards, when doing the downward dog.

I also cannot get over the price difference of yoga mats. $68 for one at Lululemon. Ya kiddin’ me?? I want to spend no more than five bucks on one, haha.

  1. Jeez, don’t they supply mats for beginners at your place? My hands don’t slip at all in downward dog, and I just use the mats they provide. I won’t get a mat until we move probably, I don’t have space to do it properly at home so there’s no point in investing!

    Nancy says: yes, we are supplied mats. But I don’t want to continue to use them. SO many people do, and they smell!!

  2. I had this problem when I started yoga. My instructor suggested that I fold a towel and put it on the top of my mat where my hands would go. Works like a charm!

  3. that’s strange that your hands slip. It could be from the mat itself??
    I have a matt that is ribbed/grooved that I got from walmart and I’ve never slipped on it.

  4. I slide on my mat too! One girl in my yoga class said age washes her mat with dishsoap and water and she no longer slides on it. I have yet to try it though.

  5. Re: the mat….look at Winners and places like that. I know that is your version of TJ Maxx and Marshalls, and sometimes they have yoga mats there. I bought my old one at Target. My hands slip a lot in barre class so I use a towel for matwork. I also have some “grippy” socks (Crescent Moon) that I wear sometimes. But I ALWAYS have the towel.
