The Extra Thick Yoga and Pilates Mat is definitely her favorite.  Most mats are very thin, so you can feel the surface beneath them.  Not with this ProsourceFit mat.  Its cushion feels like exercising on a stable cloud.  Sometimes when she is traveling between gigs, she is compelled to stop at a park, inhale fresh air, and absorb sunshine.  This mat facilitates her meditation to renew her energy.

To keep your mat clean and dry, use this nifty Arida Yoga Towel.  It is easy to carry and wash.  This towel absorbs the moisture, so your mat does not have to, thereby decreasing risk of bacteria.  Throw it in the washer and safe the lifespan of your yoga mat.
