The man that squishes as he flops into child's pose. The woman who flicks body moisture as she kicks into handstand. That person who is always soaked, even though they really don't look like they're trying that hard. Now, there's a yoga mat for the sweaty. It's by Gaiam, purveyor of yoga apparel and gear, and is called the "Sol Dry Grip Yoga Mat." Designed for Bikram classes and people with general perspiration issues, it is made of a substance that "wicks away moisture" while fighting smell issues with 'closed-cell' material. It'll cost you $69.98.
