Yoga is a healthy way to stretch the body, increase flexibility, and practice mindfulness. Many people sweat while practicing yoga, especially if they engage in hot yoga. After a session with the yoga mat, it could become soiled with sweat and oil from the hands and feet. Bacteria thrive in the moist, dark environment of a rolled-up yoga mat.
