Yoga is a great way to stay fit, and it could also become a life-long obsession for you.
The only (minor) disadvantage is that beginnings can be frustrating and leave you wondering, “Where do I buy my yoga equipment?” What yoga equipment do I need? “Am I going too far?”
Both of these questions are natural when you’re new to yoga, but they can detract from the joy and awe of it all. After all, one of the main goals of yoga (and particularly of mindfulness) is to learn to worry less, so let’s get these uncertainties out of the way.
In this post, we’ll go over the right responses to these and other questions.
1.Basic Equipment needed
A yoga mat: this should be stretchy, convenient, and fairly sticky so you don’t fall when stretching (if you sweat a lot, use an open-cell yoga mat);
•A yoga mat bag: for transporting your mat without it losing shape.
•A water bottle (you’ll get thirsty through your series and need to stay hydrated), perfect for having fresh water or even lemon water on hand;
•A yoga towel: regardless of the kind of yoga you do or how peaceful it seems from afar, yoga is always a workout, and I guarantee you will sweat, particularly if you sign up for Hot Yoga;
•A yoga harness is a piece of furniture that you can use to tightly wrap yourself up to deepen the efficacy.
2.Extras to consider
•A yoga blanket is not needed, but it will help you relax at the end of your training sessions.
•A yoga brick, also known as a yoga block, is particularly useful for at-home practise.
A strong block not only helps you maintain a more comfortable posture, but it also improves your comfort and relaxation during the less difficult periods of your yoga workout.
•A pair of yoga pants (which should be snug but flexible in order for you to stretch the boundaries of your versatility any further);
•A yoga tank top (and, depending on your bust size, a durable sports bra if you’re a lady);
•A pair of comfortable shoes with soft and durable soles that you can only wear indoors.
•Sun security: Don’t forget to have sun protection, such as sunscreen, sunglasses, and a bandana (or a visor hat).
•Bug spray: Particularly if you want to practise in the grass, invest in a bug spray that will keep mosquitos, ticks, and other creepy crawlers at bay (or flyers).
First and foremost, keep in mind that you do not need to buy anything all at once, particularly if you are unsure about doing some form of advanced yoga (such as aerial yoga or dance yoga) in the long run. I hope this post helped you inform about what necessary equipment for your yoga and meditations.
