Friday, 18 December 2020 | Paul
Due to their ability to make yoga practice easier and more accessible to anyone who wishes to learn, yoga accessories have somehow managed to get a bad reputation. If you're a beginner thinking that using a block or a strap is a sign of weakness, or of your lack of flexibility to perform the full pose without any help, you're missing out.
Yoga accessories are simply tools, used by new and experienced yogis, not only to perform a pose, but to develop and deepen the dimensions of their asana practice, and even help with certain transitions in vinyasa yoga. Without further ado, here are our Top 5 Yoga Accessories that will help you take your yoga practice to the next level.
The Exercise Mat
The first on our list is our top selling yoga mat, the Yoga-Mad Tree Mat which is designed using natural rubber to ensure the best health to you during your time spend doing yoga. It is designed to offer fantastic grip, and with fantastic shock absorption is has quickly become one of our most popular yoga accessories.
Supplied in a number of colours, this mat can be used in the house if you're stuck inside, or even in the nearby park if you have one close by. This mat is designed to offer abrasion resistance too, meaning that you shouldn't suffer from burns on your body.
Key Features: Designed using natural rubber for quality; high grip suitable for indoors and out; abrasion resistance protects the skin.
The Yoga Block
Useful for beginners and experienced yogis alike, the block can help you out with some of the most basic poses, and even with one of the most challenging transitions in vinyasa yoga, the step from downward-facing dog to a lunge. Along with the mat, the block is one of the most frequently used and much loved yoga accessories.
The Sissel Yoga Block is a lightweight and durable tool, suitable for both beginners and experts. It's available in two materials, EVA foam and natural cork, so you can easily find the perfect fit for you.

The Resistance Band

Protective Gloves and Socks
