If you have ever wanted to begin a yoga practice, now may be the best time for you to get started. Amidst this Coronavirus Pandemic people are doing all different sorts of things and branching out to add new hobbies to their repertoire - so why not add yoga to yours?

Essential Yoga Equipment

For anyone starting a yoga practice, it's important to have a clear understanding of what's actually needed!

Though you can go through a practice without any of the pieces we'll talk about here, I will say that having them handy makes for a much more pleasurable experience. Some of them, depending on what you get, can be quite pricy so if you don't have these now - don't worry! As I talk about each prop I'll also give you an idea of something you have at home now that you can use in place of it.

If you're a beginner-beginner, then Namaste and welcome! Yoga is truly a remarkable practice and I hope that it will open doors for you that you didn't even know existed. If you're feeling overwhelmed and not really sure where to start then I recommend taking a look at this post: Types Of Yoga And Which May Be Best For You. This will begin to introduce you to the different styles of yoga and guide you toward something beginner-friendly.

For those of you who already have a practice and are just looking to enhance it - then keep reading because these props will take your practice to the next level!
