Keeping Your Mat Rolled Up Until Next Class

Why it's a mistake: You wouldn't ball up your sweaty sports bra and then slip it on the next time you work out, so why do the same thing with your yoga mat? Keep in mind that dark, moist places are breeding grounds for bacteria.

What you should do: After getting home from class, wipe down your mat, and hang it over a door or banister so it can dry.
