What's great about starting up a yoga practice is that you don't need too many items. A simple yoga mat will get you started right away. But as you continue your practice, you may find that a few more items could be helpful to you. We've listed a few yoga products below that you might like to add to your wish list. These items are great for the beginner and advance yogi alike.
The Yoga Mat
A standard yoga mat is 24 inches wide and 68 inches long and are often made of vinyl or PVC. But if you're looking for an eco-friendly yoga mat, find one that is made from organic cotton or recycled rubber. Something relatively new in the yoga mat category is the cork yoga mat. You'll really love the versatility of this style of mat. The cork is treated in a way that it will prevent you from slipping (when you get a little too sweaty during your practice.) But at the same time, sweat doesn't pool up on your mat, so you'll never need to stop in the middle of your practice to wipe away the moisture. Further, these mats are naturally antimicrobial. That means they eliminate bacteria and odors that can often get trapped in other standard mats. And since they don't hold those distracting smells, they are very easy to clean.
What's fun about your yoga mat, too, is that it can reflect your style and personality. You can find a wide variety of colors and designs that suit your uniqueness. You can find all of these styles of yoga mats at majisports.com. Maji Sports has a great selection of lengths, materials, styles, and colors.
The Yoga Block
This is such a great tool to have during your yoga practice. If you were to purchase anything else besides a Maji yoga mat, an investment in a yoga block (or two) is well worth it. It is quite a versatile prop and every level of yogi can benefit from using one. The size of a standard yoga block is 4" x 6" x 9". These dimensions allow for multiple heights and widths to work with during specific yoga poses. Yoga blocks can be found in foam, cork, or bamboo. The latter two materials are highly recommended. They are long lasting, durable, and eco-friendly.
How can you use the yoga block? A very functional use of this prop is to bring the floor closer to you, especially if you're a yoga beginner. That is, when you practice a Standing Forward Fold, for example, and you cannot quite reach the floor, place your hands on a raised block to support your pose. It's that simple! Many postures where you may be required to touch the ground, a block can be a handy tool to help reach your intended goal. Performing Plank Pose, Downward Facing Dog, or other postures that have your hands pressed into the floor can cause discomfort in the wrists due to the force-flexed nature in the hands. Using blocks under each hand can not only soften that load but even create a more stable position. Do you have tight hips and it's difficult to sit on the floor with your legs crossed? Try sitting on your yoga block. It raises your hips above your knees and opens the low back which will make sitting crossed-legged on the floor much more comfortable. You can pick up a beautiful cork or bamboo yoga block at majisports.com.
The Yoga Towel
Is your mat just a little too slippery, but don't have the funds to purchase a new yoga mat? Or are you going to your favorite hot yoga class and you sweat quite a bit? Then you may want to get yourself a yoga towel. A light-weight, microfiber yoga towel can fit the size of your entire mat or you can get a hand-towel sized one for your convenience. The best thing about these towels is that they are non-slip, highly absorbent, and easy to clean. You can just throw them in the washer! And just like your yoga mat, you can get a Maji Sports Yoga Towel online. Select one in your favorite color and design.
The Meditation Pillow
Another wonderful addition to your yoga collection is the meditation pillow or Zafu. They come in various shapes: half-moon, round, rectangular. It's really up to you what size you'd like to get for comfortable sitting during your meditation practice. These are very supportive cushions that are often filled with buckwheat so they keep their shape very well. If you want to build a sitting or meditative practice into your routine, then a Zafu Meditation Pillow should be on your list.
