Yoga accessories

Admit it - your first though was, "What are yoga accessories?"

At first glance it is an activity that seems like simplicity itself - all you need is you, a floor, and the ability to twist yourself up like a pretzel.

The truth is, however, that yoga accessories can make your sessions safer and more comfortable, and even help you get more out of them.

Yoga accessories cover a wide range of items, including:

  • Mats
  • Mat bags
  • Balls
  • Blocks
  • Wedges
  • Books
  • Videos
  • DVDs
  • Clothing
The most important yoga accessories are mats. These allow you to practice safely and comfortably.

While you can make do with sliding around on a thin towel, a mat will dramatically improve your session - because they are non-slip, you'll stay in one place, and the cushioning will protect you from hard, cold floors.

Similarly, blocks and wedges can be used under hands, feet or butt to deepen stretches and achieve proper alignment, and can also assist in providing stability.

They are also used as cushioning in inversions, such as the shoulder stand (4 are required for this), to support the head in forward bends, and to provide lift in seated twists. So whatever you need, check out our links for a great selection at competitive prices.
