What's breeding in your yoga studios yoga mat?

February 15, 2012

Should communal yoga mats at studios be banned? Should we all be forced to use our own mats to practice on? It's been widely reported for some time about the hidden dangers lurking in yoga mats supplied by yoga studios around the world and yet many of us still practice on them/sweat on them/lay on them (face down on some postures!) From athlete's foot to MRSA there's some bad stuff lurking in some studio supplied mats. Even with the use of a towel I know from my studio I still see peoples feet, hands and face touching the mat itself at points in the class and this can't be good can it? Do you know how often your studio cleans it's mats? You should. What do you think about this issue?
