2. Yoloha Nomad Cork Mat
Hot yoga classes are guaranteed to make you sweat, which can lead to a potentially slippery (and dangerous) situation. According to Nick Wolny, a private yoga instructor from Houston, Texas, the Yoloha Original Cork Mat offers the best slip-proof surface he’s ever tried. “It’s the only brand I’ve seen where guys don’t need to put a towel over their mat to get a good grip in a high-sweat class,” Wolny says. Plus, cork is naturally antimicrobial, has no “break in” period, and is eco-friendly.
