Savitri, my mother, and co-founder of Alive and Shine Center, realized the dirty part of the mat on the floor goes right into the clean part when you roll your mat. You can’t control how clean your floor is, but you can control how clean your mat is! So, at Alive and Shine Center we fold our mats in half and then roll, keeping the clean part inside so that your mat is ALWAYS clean!
We recommend you do this with your own mat! It’s always good to get on your mat and know it’s as squeeky clean as you are. I often shower and do some yoga, so it’s nice to know my feet are clean and so is my mat.
