And it has become more comfortable to practice in the home or in the classroom. Because of these factors and the fact that it has become much higher profile. It has now led to the appearance of a wide variety of yoga equipment being used for classes or home.
Essentially, this means that before starting any type of yoga class, you should undertake a little bit of research to ensure that you find out which type of yoga will be right for your needs. Once you have decided this, you can then buy the correct yoga equipment, either online or directly from the shop. More information about what you need can be found over the internet as well as in books or at the various yoga studios.
A Bit about Yoga
Yoga consists of a combination of physical exercises or body positions, which are also known as “asana”. And these are used together with various breathing techniques. This will usually take place under the supervision of a qualified instructor.
Most probably your instructor will advise you about what you need, in terms of the necessary yoga equipment. Clothing will be the first thing to consider. It should always be comfortable and allow for yoga poses where for instance you need to keep your head down, or in any other posture where you may slip due to using inappropriate clothes. Shoes are not required as yoga is usually done barefoot. This is great news for those used to sitting or standing for long periods of time, which can cause feet to swell. Consequently, without the need for shoes, it can make things much more comfortable for them.
As part of the exercises are done sitting down, in yoga studios, natural rubber yoga mat with suede material are used. These are called sticky mats which also help to define the personal space of each student, but more importantly, create traction for both the hands and feet.
Other yoga equipment consists of blankets, yoga blocks, yoga balls and straps. Blankets can be used in certain positions to elevate a part of the body or to achieve a particular position if students cannot do this by themselves. They may also be used purely to make the position more comfortable and to allow students to maintain it for a longer period of time. The eco-friendly yoga brick is used to align the body properly, for example where the students hand can’t touch the floor. Straps are especially designed for maintaining a pose or to stretch muscles more effectively. They are used in poses where you are unable to reach or hold a position for more then a few seconds.
Other Things to Consider
In addition to the yoga equipment necessary in class, you can also find other helpful tools such as information material, namely videos, DVDs and books etc that you can use at home, or can study when you have some spare time. All of these things will help you to maintain a broader outlook and progress more quickly in your Yoga.
If you are Really Keen
For those of you willing to continue your exercise outside of the class, you can buy yoga product kit. A yoga kit consists of all the necessary elements, e.g. mat, blocks, balls, books and videos to help you progress much faster. Alternatively, there is Yoga equipment available to help create a warm, ambient atmosphere while you practice your yoga. In these kits you will typically find tapes with relaxing background music, aromatherapy tools, candles, bowls and essences etc. Further to this, you can even buy charm jewelries or yoga greeting cards.
