21 June 2017
The International Yoga Day, which falls on June 21 this year, is celebrated not only in India but also all over the world by yoga enthusiasts. Whether you’re a beginner yogi or have been practicing yoga for years, these are the 10 essential yoga tools you must have to celebrate International Yoga Day:
Some yoga moves can be pretty complex and rigorous, so wearing a good yoga top helps you to stay flexible and focus. The perfect yoga top should be loose fitting, stretchable, breathable, and sweat wicking for comfort.
Your muscles would benefit tremendously from high quality yoga pants that are body-mapped for ventilation in areas that sweat the most, in addition to being stretchable and having soft waistband that prevents muffin top.
Many yogis overlook the importance of carrying a yoga bag, which helps to keep your yoga mat in its best condition while you travel. Get the eco-friendly ones with adjustable carrying straps and drawstring top closure for convenience.
A session of yoga can get pretty intense, so it helps to use a durable yoga mat with wet grip so you’ll be able to perform even during your sweatiest of conditions. A good yoga mat should have thick enough cushion for your comfort, with grip and durability.
Yoga towel can be placed on top of your yoga mat or used after a session of yoga to wipe away your sweats. Get the ones that are highly absorbent, lightweight, and have silicone dots grip for non-slip performance.
Certain yoga movements require you to use a yoga strap to reach the perfect balance and comfort, even for the most difficult positions. Get a yoga strap that has a durable and removable buckle and a strap with pliable cotton webbing for easy grip.
Yoga Body Roller
A yoga body roller helps to improve your blood circulation and flexibility and relieves soreness and pain. The best ones are made from EVA foam and comes with firm support, extreme durability, and high density for optimal performance.
A yoga block helps to fine tune your poses, add extra length, help find your balance in standing poses, and support tight hips and knees. Look for a block with comfortable contoured edges, easy-to-grip textured surface, and is lightweight.
With a yoga bolster, you’ll be able to relax while opening your body and softening your posture. It’s often used in restorative, prenatal, and Iyengar based classes. Get one that is lightweight, highly absorbent, and machine washable.
Mat Restore Wash Spray
Keep your yoga mat clean and long-lasting with this restore wash spray for yoga mats. The best spray should contain certified organic essential oils and is chemical-free.
