What do I Need for Yoga?
- some examples of yoga accessories you may need before getting started.
- an explanation of the kind of reviews.
- providing you with some links to the purchase the accessory recommended.
OK, so we come onto those extra bits and bobs you may need before starting out in yoga. This post may also be useful for those people who have already started but are looking for new products.
All the items I will suggest will be available through this site by clicking on the link (or image). This will take you straight through to the merchant. In future posts, I will be carrying out full reviews of all the products you will find on yujyourlife.com. Eventually building up a large portfolio of categorised reviews that you will be able to refer to. This together with the latest updates of yoga products and practices of course.
I’ve already mentioned that a mat is an essential accessory but obviously there are different types and the quality of the mat does vary.
This brief table above gives you an example of the product features:
|Extra thick 1/4” (6.2 mm)|
|Heavy duty, but lightweight at 3.6 pounds|
|Latex-free and free of heavy metals|
|Limited lifetime warranty|
|74” x 24” x 1/4” (Cool breeze & two tone mats are 72” long)|
Yoga blankets are used to make to make your body comfortable. Giving your complete security, without any distraction so that you can concentrate on the task in hand. I prefer a soft cotton one, like this one:
Yoga straps are used to assist a person in maintaining a pose for longer. They can also be used to help when stretching, this is an example of a yoga strap:
A yoga ball is very similar to the usual gym balls that you will have seen before. They are often used by people at home who might participate in their own personal exercise program. The yoga ball can be difficult at first to master, as I’m sure you may agree having maybe tried the gym ball for stretches and exercising. However, once you get the hang of them, they can be a very useful accessory to have.
A yoga bag is primarily used to accommodate your yoga mat. However, some do come equipped with a good amount of room to store smaller items in. Here is a good example that is actually a 2 in1 in that, it is a bag and yoga mat sold together:
Obviously, there are loads more options and accessories that I could mention, things like a yoga bench and the yoga blocks. The items above are merely the ones I think are most important to get you started. I will, of course, carry out a detailed review of each product and more in future posts.
