One of the things I love most about yoga is the ability to practice anywhere. When I’m traveling I can bring yoga with me. If I’m out and about a few minutes of yoga can provide a much-needed reset.
Yoga basics are simple: comfortable clothing, a reusable water bottle, and a yoga mat. Having your own yoga mat is helpful, but I’ve seen yogis make their practice work on a towel or a blanket.
I’m a huge advocate of props. Yoga props are not a necessity but I’ve found a few that help enhance and deepen my practice.
If you’re looking for more space and stability in your poses these props can help you get there.
Using yoga blocks throughout your practice can help with proper alignment and aid in flexibility while deepening the postures. Time to place your ego aside! Using blocks does not scream “I’m new to yoga”. I love using yoga blocks to help deepen and strengthen my practice.
My yoga strap is my best friend during practice. Regardless of your level of experience, a strap can provide useful help with alignment, flexibility, and depth. My shoulders and hamstrings are grateful when the strap comes out to help with their release.
Over the years my practice has evolved and now my focus is on hot vinyasa flow. To prevent sliding around on my mat (there’s so much sweat!) I invested in a few Yogitoes Yoga Towels. After each class, I throw my towel in the laundry.
A few yoga towel tips:
- Wet the mat with a few drops of water before class to prevent slippage.
- Before investing in a yoga towel measure your yoga mat to make sure the towel will fit. There are a few sizes to chose from.
