Are you planning to be a serious yoga practitioner? Most of the time, yoga schools provide their students with all the equipment needed for their yoga sessions. When you start to taste and practice some postures outside the classroom, it becomes interesting to buy your own accessories. In this article, we’re going to talk about how to choose yoga accessories and some points to consider before you decide to spend our money.
Essential equipment to get to the first yoga class
A yoga mat is an essential accessory! Most yoga instructors put carpets at the disposal of the students. It’s perfect when we do not yet know if yoga is for us, but when yoga starts to be part of everyday life and we want to practice at home, it is better to have our own carpet. The purchase of a yoga mat often goes hand in hand with that of a carpet bag and a carpet cleaner. You also need a disinfectant spray product that can be sprayed onto the carpet after its yoga session. The ideal outfit for a yoga class is one that feels good. In order to get what you want, you must find a reliable Yoga Shop.
It may vary according to the type of yoga practiced. For example, hot yoga is often “played” with a bra and shorts, but for the more traditional yoga courses (traditional yoga styles), wide pants, a tee-shirt and a sweater to cover at the end of the session will be the best ones. A classic cushion may be suitable; its thickness will depend on the chosen seat, while other accessories can be used during a yoga class.
A meditation bench can be useful and will replace the cushion for those who do not want to sit cross-legged. The straps and bricks are used in some yoga classes to adapt to the postures. It is mainly the practitioners of classic yoga who will need bricks and straps. Practitioners of more modern yoga styles will sometimes have to procure a mala. It is a necklace of 108 beads that can be made of wood, plastic, seeds or any other material that is used for concentration practices and recitation of mantras.
Find quality accessories when practicing yoga
Few shops are specialized in the sale of yoga accessories, so it is sometimes difficult to know where to find equipment with good value for money. The easiest way is to ask a yoga school where it orders its accessories from: companies and associations can have great prices in case of bundled orders and the materials used are often of good quality. Sports stores also deal in yoga accessories: carpets, yoga clothes, bricks and straps are readily available. For cushions, meditation benches and mala, wellness shops or websites remain the main suppliers.
We hope this article should help you in choosing your dream yoga accessories! Good luck and happy shopping!
