It may be a bit of a late reply - I have a Manduka Eko and the Manduka towel. When I'm not that sweaty I find the mat itself is super grippy, but gets slippy when wet. But the towel is awesome, and gets stickier as I get sweatier! It's even been brilliant for the occasional hot yoga class - but mostly I just mean full on Fiji flow class sweaty :) Not the cheapest or lightest option, but really works for me. The towel can then also be easily washed, and, unlike some other towels I've tried, doesn't move or get twisted during practice.
Sometimes you need more than a couple of minutes of stretching. That’s where Yin Yoga, a practice that involves holding poses for long periods of time (usually three to five minutes) comes in. Yogi Nora directs you through a series of poses—some of which involve a pillow, score!—with the goal of helping you to let go and find flexibility. (via Yogi Nora)

I bought this mat around 2 years ago when I started actively practicing. It has been through a lot with me, even a yoga teacher training! The pattern on the mat is beautiful and soothing, always gives me a good vibe when I roll the mat out. It has been a long time so it has gotten some little cracks in it, and over time it can feel thin when you need to be on the mat for an entire day. But I still love it because of the sentimental values. Now I am back to buy another one from Hugger Mugger – probably a thicker one.
Women's yoga clothing from Old Navy is an excellent investment because of the range of options for integrating them into your everyday wardrobe. Of course, a full zip compression jacket is a great choice for warming up before or cooling down after a session, but is also ideal for running errands or casual weekend wear. Stylish yoga tops from this collection can be worn for drinks after a session thanks to their quick drying material, and their distinctive colors and embellishments will keep their eye catching appeal long term thanks to their wash and wear design. Yoga pants have become a staple of modern style with the sleek and streamlined silhouette they can create. Teaming a pair up with a flowing top showing off a modern cut and a fun, vibrant color creates a no fuss ensemble that works in a variety of venues. Complete the look with a cute pair of flats in a textured material such as leather or suede to give the pairing depth, or choose a pair of low profile athletic sneakers to play up the sporty aesthetic.
