The best yoga towels to avoid slipping on your mat

Sweat can hamper your enjoyment of yoga, not to mention your positioning. When you’re sliding all over the place or continually having to wipe sweat out of your eyes with your hands or shirt, it gets old. An absorbent towel helps you stay more comfortable and ensures you have a safer practice.

A yoga towel allows you to practice particularly strenuous yoga without worrying about losing traction or sweat ruining your experience. Our choices are easy to clean and provide excellent grip even with tons of sweat. Your practice will improve, and you won’t have to sacrifice your hot yoga or Bikram practice again. Let’s take a look at our favorites below.

Best overall: Yoga Jaci Yoga Mat Towel

You don’t need a fancy yoga towel to provide you what you need. Yoga Jaci’s towel provides ultra-absorbent performance in an easily packable and lightweight form. It is extra-long to cover most yoga mats and allows you to practice hot yoga and other intense forms with better moisture management. It has high-quality stitching and is machine washable.

Best for stability: Heathyoga Non-Slip Yoga Towel

Heathyoga’s microfiber towel uses a dual-sided grip function that prevents the towel from slipping and sliding around. Corner pockets hook onto your mat to prevent shifting, and it comes in two sizes to accommodate most yoga mats. It comes with a carry bag and can be machine washed for sanitation and ease of cleaning.

Best towel/mat combo: Yoga Design Lab Combo Yoga Mat

Yoga Design Lab created their yoga mat to blend the function of a yoga towel with the stability of your mat. There’s no positioning needed and no sliding. Instead, it absorbs sweat and improves grip with a combination of natural tree rubber and microfiber. It is machine washable and dries quickly on the line, and it comes in a variety of colors.
