As you know by now, yoga is a practice that is very special to me as it has transformed my life and the lives of others in so many ways. I cannot stress enough how much I recommend incorporating yoga into your daily routine, even if that means practicing it for just a few minutes each day.
When you’re starting out in yoga, you really don’t need as much as you might think to have a pleasant session. Today, I’m recommending three yoga essentials for a safe and effective daily practice.
A Yoga Mat
This may come as no surprise, but it really is important to have a yoga mat for your practice rather than using your carpet, floor or any other surface as an alternative. Having a yoga mat will provide extra support when it comes to your yoga poses, especially ones that require more strength and flexibility. It will also prevent you from potential injury.
What I find most important about a yoga mat is that it really does become a part of you. Your yoga mat becomes something that you can always resort to whenever your body, mind and soul need it most.
Toe spreaders are a natural way to relieve all types of foot pain that may be preventing you from advancing in your yoga practice. Your feet play a crucial role in yoga so it is important to make sure you are protecting them from injury and relieving them from the pressure that results from day-to-day activities.
With toe spreaders, you can release all of the tension and stress in your feet, encourage blood circulation, as well as prevent foot problems like plantar fasciitis, bunions, flat feet, and more.
Taking care of arguably one of the most important foundations of our bodies, our feet, is a step closer to having an amazing yoga practice.
As you move forward in your practice, you may find that not every pose can be entirely comfortable at times. This is where yoga blocks come into play.
Yoga blocks are a great essential to use in order to provide more comfort and extra support during your practice, especially during poses that involve stretching. Yoga blocks can be used for people of all different levels as it can add more balance and length to certain poses or even be used to challenge yourself even more. It doesn’t matter what level of yoga you practice; yoga blocks are beneficial to anyone who uses them.
