Sweating during any workout or stretch shows that you’re working hard, but it can get in the way of your perfect yoga pose. If you use a yoga towel, slipping and sliding around will be a thing of the past.

Yoga towels are used to cover your yoga mat, wipe your body, and dry your hands—and we’ve rounded up towels great for all of that. Having a yoga towel during your yoga session can also reduce bacteria buildup on your mat since towels are easier to clean than a mat.

Whether you’re experienced or new, if you do Bikram, Vinyasa, hot, or any other type of yoga, you’ll find yoga towels helpful. 

Best Overall Yoga Towel for Your Mat: Healthyoga ($20)

Covering your yoga mat with a towel can be helpful for not only keeping your mat clean and sweat-free (and ultimately bacteria-free), but also for improving your grip and stability. And with the Healthyoga Non-Slip Yoga Towel, you won’t be slipping around. This towel has a corner pocket design that folds over each corner of the mat. When you’re in the middle of a stretch, the towel will stay taut and in place.

No more worrying about positioning your towel during yoga with the Healthyoga! Plus, the towel has a two-sided dual grip that keeps it firmly in place, even when you’re moving around. Not only will the towel stay in one position, but the grid-like texture can also enhance your poses by providing a better grip while the absorbent microfiber wicks up sweat and moisture to prevent slipping. Towels also help you maintain a hygienic yoga space, and are easier to clean than a mat.

The Healthyoga comes in two different towel sizes (depending on the size of your mat), and 6 different colors. While this towel will work for most mats, if you’re looking for a towel that will cover your mat but is just a few inches longer than the Healthyoga, check out this SYOURSELF Yoga Towel.
