It’s hard to clear your head in a yoga class when all you can think about is slipping on your sweaty palms and face planting during downward dog.

Which is why smart yogis tote yoga towels to class and the eco-conscious yoga goods company Manduka has launched a new colorwave of Yogitoes performance towels made to keep you in place, no matter your buckets of sweat.

The company’s been making these skidless silicon nubs on the bottom (kind of like barre socks), so when you place them atop your yoga mat, the towel grips on tightly and prevents slipping and sliding. The machine-washable towels are super common in hot yoga, but practicing any style in summer is a legit reason to unroll one, too.

As for all the water you’re pounding to stay hydrated in class, you’ll be glad to know that at least eight recycled water bottles are used to make one towel. —Amy Marturana
