Before his experience, he did not believe existence of a non-physical spirit. Trained in western medical school and surrounded by medical colleagues who are deeply invested in the materialism view of the universe, he thought that the idea of a soul was outlandish. Dr. Alexander changed his mind after he was in a coma for seven days caused by severe bacterial meningitis and experienced a vivid journey into the afterlife. He was guided by an beautiful angelic being and shown the Divine Source, which he referred to as “Om”.

You unroll your favorite yoga mat in your usual spot in the studio, sit down, and start preparing for class. Suddenly you get a whiff—what is that awful smell?
It’s your yoga mat. And it needs to be cleaned. Immediately.
It’s hard to find inner peace on a sticky, smelly yoga mat. Unfortunately, most of us aren’t cleaning our mats regularly, if at all.
Here are some expert-recommended, do-it-yourself ways to show your yoga mat some love.
Use a glass spray bottle. Gina Caputo has been using her black Manduka yoga mat for 13 years. That’s right—13 years. “It’s still good as new,” says Caputo, who has been teaching yoga for over 10 years. To take care of her mat, Caputo buys an empty glass spray bottle and combines either tea tree oil or lavender oil with distilled water. Spray the whole mat and wipe it down with a hand towel for everyday care.
Make your own mixture. Michelle Copland, founder and owner of CoolHotYoga with studios in both New Jersey and California, has a unique mixture in the studio for students to clean mats with. “It’s half vodka, half water, and several drops of tea tree oil,” Copland says. “The vodka is for sterilization and the tea tree oil is antibacterial.”
Give it a bath. Take the mat to the tub for a more thorough cleaning. Run some warm water over it, a little bit of soap, and use your hands as a sponge. Rub it down thoroughly, rinse it off, and lay it in the shade to dry. Caputo recommends using Dr. Bronner’s organic soap.
Throw it in the wash. Clean your mat like you clean your clothes—put it in the washing machine! “It’s so easy to just throw it in the wash with cold water on gentle and then hang it outside,” says Hillary Wellisch, a FlyBarre teacher who has also been teaching yoga for eight years.
Fold it in half. Ever taken a yoga class outside? Then you know how dirty the bottom of your mat can get. Don’t worry, Caputo has a great solution to keep that dirt from transferring to the clean side of the mat. Instead of rolling up the mat normally, fold it in half so the top meets the bottom, and then roll it. “That way, the bottom of the mat never touches the top of the mat,” Caputo explains.
