Yoga mat or yoga rug has now become an extension of the yogi. And that makes it an important part of the daily yoga practice. When a yogi lays down the yoga rug, he or she is committing to the practice and leaving behind a stressful daily life.
The purpose of yoga mat or yoga rug
- It provides support and padding: Yoga on the bare ground can sometimes be painful. Imagine pressing your elbows, palms, or knees on the ground, for many it can be a painful experience. This is when yoga rugs help as they give you support and adequate padding to perform the asana smoothly.
- Yoga rug can turn a place into a sacred one: Yoga asks commitment and dedication, moreover for many yoga is a sacred practice and it deserve a space. When one is practicing on the mat it becomes a define space for the practice. Also, each time a yogi steps onto a yoga rug, he or she enters that sacred realm for yogis.
- Yoga rugs avoid the practitioner from slipping: A yoga rug with nonslip backing will help the rug not move while performing the poses. One can also place a yoga rug on a yoga sticky mat to avoid slipping. There are many who choose rug texture are over sticky mats.
However, it is important to wash the rug on a regular basis as sweat gets deposited in the fibre and it becomes unhygienic to use the rug.
