Product Description

Hot yoga devotees, meet your new favorite prop. Placed on top of a yoga mat, this super absorbent, microfiber towel wicks away moisture and dries in half the time of a cotton towel even after hot yoga classes like Bikram. 24"W x 68"L X 1/8"D (2.5mm). 75% nylon/25% polyester. Made in China.

Yoga towels come in handy in several situations--as a top layer for your yoga mat, as a yoga mat substitute when a mat isn't available, or while performing "hot" yoga. When used with a yoga mat, this microfiber towel from Gaiam keeps you from slipping while adding a hygienic barrier to the floor. However, it also excels as a regular towel, with a super-absorbent construction that mops up sweat during a particularly energizing routine. The same size as a standard Gaiam yoga mat, the towel is fashionable and effective.

Customer Reviews:

  • It works.
    This yoga towel works good. Like other reviewer says, this one doesn't stay still on the yoga mat as well as yogitoes and I have to fix it a couple of more extra times in a session. I hope it would be a little longer so I can tuck into yoga mat to prevent it, but still works well and really light to carry.

  • Gaiam Thirsty yoga towel
    I love this yoga towel. It is the perfect size to fit on my yoga mat. It works great when doing hot yoga such as Ashtanga yoga. It aborbs the sweat very well and you don't slip and slide all over your mat. It's also machine washable which is a plus! ...more info
  • great seller
    I got towles very fast, they work fine on the yoga mat, but they do move around and need to be adjust. For the price, they are good yoga towels....more info
  • Yoga Mat Towel... better off without.
    I wasnt impressed with this towel at all. i would have been better off spending a few extra bucks on a yogitoe with non-slip backing because this yoga mat towel made maneuvering much more difficult. A lot of slippage and made practice distracting. WOuld work in a pinch for heated yoga when a lot of sweat is involved....more info
  • Good towel
    It's a good towel. It does move just a little. It's a good cheap alternative....more info
  • Better than a mat alone but still not perfect
    I bought this because when I am doing more vigorous yoga the palms of my hands and soles of my feet tend to sweat making it very difficult not to slide all over the mat. As a result, I find my form suffers and I don't get as good of a workout.

    This towel is an okay solution to those problems. It absorbs moisture very well so I no longer slip at all, even after a long class. It is also long enough that it covers my whole mat minus about 3 inches. However, the towel tends to get VERY bunched up. This is especially problematic if you are doing something like a flow class and don't have time between poses to stop and smooth it out. It actually doesn't disrupt my yoga practice that much, but it does make me feel more self conscious. Other than that I do enjoy this towel so I am going to see about using velcro or another solution to keep it secured to my mat as this is the only gripe I have....more info
  • Great for Bikram Yoga
    Definitely this towel is perfect for Bikram. It is the right size for the mat, it does not slip and it is super absorbent. Washing it in the shower is easy. I wish it dried faster so I could use it next day. Normally takes about 24hrs before it's fully dry. Overall a good purchase.
