Talking about the bliss of practising yoga in the summer heat  there’s  often an annoying detail that disturbs the concentration: a bad smelling mat. Unfortunately microbes and bacteria find their perfect habitat in a moist and rolled-up yoga mat. And if it’s not for the lurking bacteria, after a time of intense use any yoga mat loses its clean and fresh smell.
