To practice Yoga you only need your body and mind. Nothing more. Which doesn't mean that you cannot equip yourself to make life easier and your practice more enjoyable. Here you find recommendations for material that helps us in our daily Yoga practice.
There are a lot of sustainable choices for Yoga mats on the market. Just search the Internet for "environmentally friendly Yoga mat" and you will find product reviews as well as vendors. For spontaneous outdoor-practice and students without mats we use mats by Manduka. They offer mats out of natural rubber, harvested in non-rainforest areas. That way you stay free of unwanted additives and still get a good grip. And they come in beautiful colours which makes a difference if you look at it every day...
If you choose to buy a Manduka mat, please click the banner provided here. That way we get a small percentage of the purchase through our affiliate program with them while you still pay the same price.
The blocks we use are also made by Manduka. They consist of cork, a natural alternative to synthetic blocks, though Manduka also offers recycled foam blocks. Of course you can use anything that elevates you: A thick book, an upside down bucket or a stack of anything that gets you high enough to lift your practice to the next level. But we do see the advantage of Yoga blocks that have the right grip and are easy to travel with. To find the blocks we have, click here:
Yoga straps are very useful for many poses. We admit: At the moment we use old belts that can be adjusted freely (without holes). If we get ourselves some real Yoga straps, we will let you know.
