Real Cheap YOGA Equipment For Beginners

Us yogis. we love our props! Whether at home or in the studio, yoga accessories can take your experience from so-so to juicy and rich! Here’s how:

1. The Reehut Yoga Block Will Help You Deepen Poses And Improve Balance and Flexibility

Reehut Yoga Block

The block or blocks can be used to support the body in finding the perfect posture. In challenging postures- a block can be a way to get into a pose with less stress on the body. In more gentle postures the block is helpful to open up target areas of the body with little to no effort. I particularly like the foam blocks better than wood, they have more give. Amazon has plenty of blocks for purchase, one in particular that stands out are Peace Yoga Foam Exercise Blocks that you can choose the color and sizes for there Under $10!

2. The Blanket

Some studios provide the authentic Mexican style blanket we’ve all seemed to adapt to our practice, but it’s sure nice to have your own! Being in charge of how your blanket is treated, when its washed and who are using it are just a few examples of the luxuries of having your own blanket. I don’t know about you, but I can cozy up more comfortably to my own blanket versus a communal one! On Amazon, ‘Authentic Mexican Yoga Falsa Blanket (Assorted)’is sold for exactly $10.

3. The Water Bottle

It’s important to stay hydrated all the time, especially after a vigorous hot Yoga class! Carrying a water bottle with you all the time and most definitely to class is important not only for your health but also for the environment. Us yogis like to keep the planet clean, safe and protected for all beings and support everyone to buy a permanent water bottle. The ‘Nalgene Tritan 32oz Wide Mouth BPA-Free Water Bottle’ is a favorite of mine- lots of water and easy to clean.

Want to further your relaxation experience in the savanna (corpse pose) or in your favorite restorative class? Lavender Eye pillows are such a lovely way to do this! The weight, the scent and the darkness that the Eye Pillow creates will help deeply relax your body and mind. I was able to find one on Amazon for a bit more than $10, but it’s worth it, the Premium Lavender Eye Pillow, Cassia Seed & Lavender Aromatherapy Eye Mask Travel Pillow for Yoga, Meditation, Relaxation, Soothing Stress, and Headache Relief.’
