What Equipment Do You Need for YOGA?


GREAT, so you have been reading about the HEALTH benefits of practising YOGA and you are now curious and ready to give a yoga class a try. You do your research and find a class in the neighbourhood. Now you will question; WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU NEED FOR YOGA?


Basically, if you are attending a Yoga class you do not need to take any equipment with you. Usually yoga studios provide you with any props required during the class.

Unless it is an outdoor yoga class, where no equipment is available and you will have to bring your own. At the very least you would need a mat and a bottle of water.

In time, if you enjoy the class it is more likely you would want to continue practising, then perhaps it is wise to have some yoga accessories of your own.

Yoga lovers tend to dedicate a room or a space at home for yoga practice.

Here below you will find some Yoga Essentials that you may like to have, as well as a nice selection of Yoga Wear.

Please note that prices may change or vary.


1.Anti Slippery & Environmentally Friendly

An important feature to look for when buying a yoga mat, is that it is anti slippery.  You do not want to be sliding along with your mat whilst you are changing posture during your exercise.

2. 100% Cotton & with A Prominent OM design

The beauty of Asanas or Yoga Poses is they are ideal for every level. Being a beginner, or if you have not been practising often, your muscles won´t be so flexible, so if you need some extra help to reach your toes in a sitting forward bend or to lift both your legs up when lying on your back, then the yoga-strap will come in very handy.

4. Soft Wool from the Kashmir Region in North India

It is common at the end of a Yoga class; 5 minutes are dedicated to relaxation and 5 minutes to meditation. This may vary depending on the type of class. When you are active during the practice of exercises you are warm, but when you are lying down inactive your body temperature drops.

This is when a blanket or shawl is useful to cover yourself to keep warm and enjoy the unwinding and relaxation time.
