Over and above yoga leggings and a supportive bra, the only thing you really need for practicing yoga is a yoga mat. Many yoga studios provide most of the props that are useful during yoga but you may want to purchase them if you want to practice yoga at home for convenience and save on yoga class costs.
After sitting at a desk all day improve your posture by rolling out a yoga wheel. This wheel stretches and opens the muscles on the front side of the body, including your hip flexors, abdomen, chest, and shoulders. It offers a comfortable cushion to roll down the length of your spine to massage hard-to-reach muscles and assists with improving your balance. This yoga prop also helps yogis move into deeper poses and backbends, so you can progress and accomplish your fitness goals safely.
Whether you’re a yoga beginner or a master yogi, adding a yoga block to your gym bag will help you get more out of your yoga class. A yoga block assists beginners with flexibility and stability if you’re struggling with balance. Place it on the ground and spread your fingers wide to help steady your pose. If you’re more advanced in your yoga practice, challenge yourself by balancing on the block with simpler poses like chair or tree. This eco-friendly block is hard yet smooth for durability and has rounded edges for a comfortable grip.
Enjoy deeper stretches and longer poses by using a yoga strap to assist you.
This yoga strap is perfect for beginners and pros, as there are many different ways you can use it. For beginners, the strap allows you to slowly ease into poses and helps stretch tight muscles. If you have practiced yoga for years but have never used a strap, you may want to add it to your next session. It can make poses more challenging to hold and help realign proper posture. Get this strap you’ll find yourself using it more often than you’d think.
