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. To buy clothes for yoga online, head to www.everythingyoga.com.

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.

    It's definitely an American thing - here in Australia we have like no Cheerleaders or Cheerleading groups. I think it's a sport but I'm not really into it. I think any girls or boys can do it. :3

    Sure, many girls can fight, in fact some can fight really well, however it is a fact that women are generally physically weaker than men, which means that if a healthy male and a healthy female were to fight then the outcome wouldn't be 50/50 but rather 25/75 if even that much, this assumes that both the male and female have the same experience, training and of course both are healthy. This doesn't mean that women are inferior to men, but I am just pointing out facts, the notion that men and women are exactly the same and should be carrying out the same tasks is ridiculous.
