Attention Bikram Buffs: Sol Dry Grip Yoga Mat

Gaiam has released a yoga mat designed specifically for Bikram yoga.

It’s no secret that yoga is gaining popularity as more people turn to the mat for weight training and relaxation. Fans of Bikram or “hot yoga”—which uses heat to increase flexibility—tend to grow increasingly uncomfortable during their workout when they learn that their yoga mats can’t handle excessive amounts of sweat.

Fortunately, Gaiam has released a yoga mat designed specifically for Bikram yoga. The Sol Dry Grip Yoga Mat ($69.99) is designed to combat sweat for the ultimate hot yoga experience. The mat stays clean with a closed-cell material that seals out moisture and germs. A 3-millimeter PVC back offers cushion and support, keeping joints happy and preventing users from slipping off their mats. Also, the mat is easy on the wrists, thanks to its polyurethane topcoat for a comfortable grip.

The Sol Dry Grip Yoga Mat not only feels fantastic, it looks fantastic with its sleek black shade and sophisticated design. Visit gaiam.com to purchase the Sol Dry Grip Yoga Mat or any of Gaiam’s other high-quality yoga and fitness gear.
