Yoga Supplies?

Does anyone know of were you can buy a yoga rug or other yoga supplies in the Portland area? I live NE, close to Providence Hospital, might there be any in the area?
I Bought a "black mat" recently off of a website, I don't know if its the "black mat" I've been hearing the hype about or an imitation. It moves a little when I'm practicing (on carpet) and I sweat a lot when I do yoga and the tractions not that good on the mat when I sweat. Sometimes I'm not able to stay in place, I'll slip. So I was thinking of buying a yoga rug. Would that solve the problem with the traction and slipping or does anyone have any suggestions?

I've gone through several mats with the same problem. I've never found any mat or rug that was fully immune, but Yogi Toe towels work fairly well. What I have found also, is that newer mats tend to be more slick. I think after they break in, they hold better.

hello and no problem. sorry for the delayed response. I don't know much about rubber mats, no. the mat that I have now I have been using for over two years now and I love it! unfortunately, I can't recall the company at the moment but it is starting to show some aging signs so I need to do a little research. I will definitely be getting the same mat. what I do know about it is that it was one of the first biodegradable mats made, if not the first and so, another advantage. it was a little slick at first and actually, kind of embarrassingly squeaky but after time it has been a great mat. if and when you get a yogitoes towel, a helpful hint: before you practice, sprinkle a little water all over it. this will help it stay until you get your own moisture on it. when I find out which mat I have, I will let you know. not sure how helpful this is but that's all I got right now :)

I believe the yoga mat you are referring to is the Jade mat. I just bought one a while back and it is the least slippery out of all that I have tried. It's not perfect, but it's significantly better than most mats. I bought mine at The Bhaktishop on Division in SE Portland, I think it was around $35?
