"As a former dancer, I look for certain things in a "carrier" of whatever gear I may be hauling around. I particularly liked the fact that the YOPA had compartments. When I was dancing, I liked the fact that I could store my sweaty pointe shoes in an outside, meshed pocket. On occasion, I wear socks before yoga class while stretching to keep my feet warm and intend to keep them in the mesh pocket on the YOPA. Two of the days out of four that I take yoga, I come directly from work, inevitably I forget to take off my jewelry and again your bag is ideal for me as I hate to just throw things in my purse. As you point out on your site, towel, keys, water, etc. are easily stored. Again I go back to my ballet days when I say that I want to have access to all my gear when I want it. Your bag seems to be easy to get in and out of quickly and stores stuff efficiently. I'm looking forward to using it and will certainly pass along your product's usefulness to others who inquire. And, like dancers, yogis and yoginis pass along what works by word of mouth. I hope some of this helps. Thanks and best wishes. Lisa"
