Sweat used to drench my yoga mat in hot vinyasa classes, and even though you won’t find me in those classes very often anymore, beads still drip from my head in most practices. When I travel to other studios and need to borrow a mat, I often wonder how clean it is. I feel lucky that there is a LightWorker UV mat sanitizer at Gravity Haus, the studio where I teach in Vail, Colorado.
Although it doesn’t dry my mat (a good yoga towel is handy for helping keep your mat dry), in less than a minute LightWorker UV kills the bacteria that causes funk and smells in a yoga or fitness space. We’re all looking for ways to stay healthy and safe from sickness, and this user-friendly machine is designed to deactivate and destroy 99.9% of the bacteria, viruses and fungi that have accumulated on mats used at gyms, yoga studios and at home. Unlike traditional mat sprays and sanitizers that need drying time, the LightWorker leaves mats fresh and odor-free using pure light within seconds.
Simply slide your rolled mat over the top bar, start to feed your mat into the LightWorker UV, then once the high-intensity UV-C light chamber kicks on, the rollers automatically feed your mat through at a pace where you can re-roll your fresh and clean mat to store. This works because both sides of the mat are exposed to concentrated germicidal light that deactivates microorganisms by destroying their DNA.
If you’re looking to give yourself and a studio space peace of mind, I recommend investing in a LightWorker UV mat sanitizer. Learn more at lightworkeruv.com.
