Bostonista Sweats It

1225121217EquiFit owner Alexandra Cherubini has fused two of her passions—riding and yoga—with the AgSilver CleanMat, a yoga mat that incorporates AgSilver, a powerful antimicrobial ingredient used on horses (yes, horses) to rid them of infection and rash.

Woven throughout the entire mat, and not just on the surface, the CleanMat is guaranteed to withstand even the most rigorous power yoga-going routine, and prevent the growth of bacteria from your sweat or any one else’s. Unsavory image, sure, but that’s the facts. Hot rooms breed bacteria. This way, you don’t have to take it home with you.

Use it at the new Life in Synergy studios, a sleek new studio space in the Back Bay where classes in more than 10 kinds of yoga—Kripalu, Ashtanga, Ballet Yoga, Yoga for Athletes, Hot House Power Yoga, Detox Yoga, Vinyasa Dance, and more–start today. Classes are $15.
