Aurorae's Sport/Yoga Mat Towel Review & Giveaway

Aurorae's Sport/Yoga Mat Towel Review & Giveaway

We love to do yoga in our house, and also at a local studio- we are all about yoga around here!

I was very happy to get approved to review the Aurorae's Sport/Yoga Mat Towel

I have a purple sticky mat that I have been using for about 20 years now, plus a few others for different reasons, and although I love them I have had issues over time.  

I get super super sweaty doing regular yoga- this often makes my mat slick as an ice rink. 

I don't even do hot yoga.. that would be redundant for me.. lol.  Having something absorbent on my mat is really a step up to my yoga experience.

The Aurorae's Sport/Yoga Mat Towel comes in a variety of colors. Mine is "Ocean" the 4th one down from the top. For some reason my camera and laptop are not cooperating for the color on the blog.. so when you see my pictures- imagine the mat in that vibrant blue above.. lol.

I love the cute little logo embroidered into the fabric. It makes it look just a little fancier.

Here is a close up of the super soft fabric. It is microfiber- and very absorbent!

My mat from a distance. It is so big!

I was very happy to add this on top of my regular mat and was very pleased with the results. The mat is just the right size to fit over a standard yoga mat. I suspect even if yours is a little longer, you would still get the use you needed from this size on a down dog or plank pose.. 

My yoga surface is now just a little softer and a lot more plush!

I do need to moisten it just a bit to avoid slipping at first, but that is never an issue as I do sweat a lot. I think if you are doing actual hot yoga you will be very pleased with this!

It is also nice that this fiber dries very quickly. I do wash it after every use- more because it ends up with dog hair on it in my house (like everything does.) It is nice to know it won't be in the dryer for a long time. It cleans up nicely every time.

It rolls right up into my yoga mat, or on its own. It barely takes up room in my yoga bag,

A few other uses that we have found for it- as a toddler towel. She likes to carry this around and play with it in the living room. 

I have also used it as a toddler diaper backup in my bed when she decides to crawl in during the night. She hasn't made a mess on it yet thankfully! lol

I also can toss this in her travel bag for quick diaper changes, or a surprise picnic blanket or play space. 

The ideas are really limitless.. yoga is just the start! 

Overall, we are really enjoying the Aurorae's Sport/Yoga Mat Towel. I suspect we will be for a long, long time!
