Bringing a yoga mat strap to a yoga class can be helpful in several ways. Firstly, it can make it easier to transport your mat to and from the studio or gym. The strap can be used to carry the mat over your shoulder, leaving your hands free to carry other items such as a water bottle or gym bag.
Secondly, using a strap can also assist in the actual yoga practice itself. Some yoga poses, such as bound angle pose (Baddha Konasana) and seated forward fold (Paschimottanasana), require the practitioner to reach forward and grasp their feet or ankles. Using a strap can help you to reach further into these poses, allowing you to deepen your stretch.
Lastly, having a yoga mat strap can be helpful in keeping your mat clean and dry. After class, you can use the strap to roll up your mat tightly, making it easier to transport and store. This can help to prevent moisture and dirt from getting onto your mat, keeping it in good condition for longer.
So, in summary, bringing a yoga mat strap to a yoga class can be a useful accessory to have for transportation, assistance in certain poses, and maintaining the cleanliness of your mat.
