This towel is as large as a standard yoga mat to keep your mat dry and help you maintain proper alignment and poses while sweating or in a moist environment. Best of all, this towel is easily cleaned in your washing machine! Measures 68" x 24" x 0.08".

It is the perfect size to fit on my yoga mat.
PeonyBud
It doesn't stay put, it's constantly moving, and it interferes with my poses because it constantly bunches up.
Jerzey Girl
It is soft, stays in place, and absorbs moisture well.

My wife and I avidly practice Bikram yoga, sometimes as often as 6 classes a week. We started our practice using bath towels and quickly moved to yoga towels for the added slip-free design, sweat-wicking and fast drying composition of the Gaiam towels.

Briefly, my PROS and CONS;
PROS
- Once slightly damp provide a very slip-free surface
- bunches only slightly, I usually have no issues in Bikram but my towel moves a bit during active Vinyasa sessions.
- Wash them and hang to dry, they are often completely dry in a few hours
- Hold up fairly well after washing (which you need to do after every class)

CONS
- We now have purchased 6 of these towels since we started in January 2011. We needed at least 4 (2 towels each) to rotate every other day or for when we do double classes on weekends.
- After 3 months the towels pick up a mildew smell that is impossible to remove. I have washed with baking soda, vinegar, hung out in the sun, tossed the older ones in a dryer, but the smell is horrible.
-After 3 months of regular use and maybe 30-40 washings, I've had to throw out 2 of the towels.

I am going to try the Yogitoes towel that is a little more expensive, to see if the towels hold up a little longer. I will update this review once I have tried the other brand.

I have been doing Bikram yoga for about a year now, and needed something longer than a normal bath towel. Instead of buying the expensive yoga towels, I went for Gaiam's, and have not been too impressed. It does absorb much more than a normal towel, but does not stay put on top of the mat in between poses which causes me to constantly fix it, leaving me with little if any resting time. I suggest buying the expensive towels for it's worth the cost in the end.

I bought this in place of a Yogitoes towel and found that although it doesn't have the anti-skid nubs on the underside it still stays in place fairly well. It's super absorbant and significantly cheaper than a Yogitoes towel. I endorse this product.

I own two of these yoga towels, and I have found them to be durable, highly absorbent, and an overall great value. I can't believe people actually spend 2-3 times as much on other brands! I practice yoga 5-6 times per week, so I need a towel that will stand up to lots of use and washing.This is a perfectly good towel that fulfils my needs: a non-slip, absorbent surface that completely covers my yoga mat. I have used this towel for both Bikram-style hot yoga classes as well as Vinyasa flow classes, and it works well for both. It's lightweight and dries really quickly too. This towel doesn't shrink or fade either, even after dozens of washings, unlike the shrunken Yogitoes towels I see others using in my yoga classes. I would have given it 5 stars instead of 4, but it sometimes doesn't stay put perfectly - I've found that I may have to straighten it once during an especially active flowing class. Overall, I'm satisfied with this yoga towel, and I see no need to waste money on the pricier brands.

Just started Bikram (hot) yoga and was slipping and sliding on my old bath towel, so I decided to give this a try. It fits perfectly to my yoga mat and really does absorb the sweat really well. It bunches up a little when we are moving positions a lot, but overall I feel it was money well spent, especially seeing how much other manufacturers charge. Definitely worth it!

Color Name: Smokey Purple Verified Purchase
I bought this towel a few days ago and started using it this week. I don't see a huge difference between this and an ordinary towel except that it is longer and lighter. The towel covered the whole mat and is easy to carry around compared to the normal bath towel. It is very lightweight. It does tend to move during my bikram yoga practice so I have to constantly fix it and it also does not prevent slipping. Another con of the towel is it has to be line dried and cannot go into the dryer. I'm afraid this can be a problem during the winter since I practice rather regularly. I am not sure how fast the towel will dry during the winter without using the dryer. I am currently alternating this towel with my normal bath towel. Compared to the more expensive towels, this is an OK towel - not the best or the greatest, but serves its purpose (especially when you have to take public transit to get to the studio). I will wait and see how this towel holds out before deciding if I want to buy the more expensive ones.

11/08/10 UPDATE: I have been using this towel for awhile and starting to really like it. I bought another one of these for my bikram yoga practice. Towel dries fast even if you don't put it in the dryer. It is also light weight; which makes it lighter and easier to carry around. I just move my towel for poses which I am prone to slip. This is the cheapest towel so far that I have found for my bikram yoga practice. There are a few nuances but it does its job. If you do not want to spend more than $30 for a yoga towel, then this is something you should definitely consider.

I have two of these towels and do Bikram 5-7 days a week. It works as well as a more expensive yoga towel. I wash it after each class and since I rotate towels, I really didn't want to pay the money for more expensive towels. I've used mine for six months and it smells clean after I wash it and lay it out to dry. I put it outside as much as possible. I sweat like a river and it does a good job. Ok so once in awhile it does a minor bunch, but a quick flick of my toe and it is fine. I don't find that it slips at all, but maybe that is more muscle use than trying to push into the towel.
