Get the Goods on Yoga Gear

Thinking about entering the world of yoga? From mats to pants, check out some of the gear that'll help you get started.

Yoga Gear - Mats

Whether you do yoga at a studio, community center or at home, it's helpful to have a yoga mat. A mat gives you cushioning on a hard floor and it also gives your hands and feet some traction so you don't slip - especially if you start to get a bit sweaty. Most yoga classes have mats that you can rent or borrow, but lots of people use these mats and they can get a bit smelly, so it's nice to have your own. Yoga mats can be purchased for around $20. To buy a yoga mat online, head to www.yogakids.com.

Yoga Gear - Clothes

When you're trying to stretch or twist yourself into sometimes difficult yoga positions, it's recommended you wear comfortable, breathable clothes. A good pair of exercise pants or shorts are fine to wear and you may want to wear a shirt that fits a bit tight, so your shirt doesn't slip down when you're having to bend over.

Yoga Gear - Accessories

  • Blocks - Yoga blocks are helpful for beginners, as they can help to align your body in many poses.
  • Toning Balls - These are good for stretching, strengthening and toning the body and can help improve coordination and flexibility. Try yoga poses while using the toning ball for a great workout.
  • Yoga Bags - If you're super into yoga and do it a couple of times a week, you may want to get a yoga bag, which has room for your clothes, a water bottle and a strap to hold your mat.
