Thick yoga mat — an absolute must-have
One of the basic essentials you will need to get started with your yoga practice is a yoga mat. This seemingly very simple yoga accessory can make a lot of difference in the comfort and efficiency of your workout. This all-purpose high density yoga mat comes with an excellent slip resistance — one of the main features to look for in an exercise mat, as the last thing you want to be worried about when doing your Crow pose is your hands sliding on the mat and you losing your balance.
The high density EVA material provides an excellent cushioning effect — also important — in case one of the poses does not work out after all, at least you will enjoy a soft landing. Thanks to the mat's extra large size, you will have plenty of space and freedom of movement during your exercise routine and the mat is a great fit for almost any workout including yoga, pilates, stretching and more.
High density yoga brick — for speeding up progress
Yoga bricks are one of the key pieces of equipment when it comes an efficient yoga workout.
A yoga brick can be used in a variety of ways but is especially helpful in getting the form of a pose down correctly when you can not quite master all the elements. For instance, if you can't get your reach to place your hand on the ground in the Triangle pose, you can use the brick to keep balance. Alternatively, you can use the brick to make a pose more challenging or add variety to your practice.
This particular yoga brick is made with high elasticity and high strength rubber and uses only environmentally-friendly materials — which will ensure that your workout is comfortable and safe.
Pedal elastic resistance band — to add variety to your routine
Resistance bands are a great addition to almost any workout, whether you are taking a yoga class or just doing some stretching in the living room. In yoga, resistance bands are often used as intensifiers for toning exercises as well as for deep stretching. Allowing for great freedom of movement, the bands are incredibly versatile and can offer an interesting new element to already familiar exercise routines.
Pedal elastic resistance bands are a bit different from standard bands: thanks to the special design with "pedals" for your feet, they offer better control of the exercise.
Incredibly portable and easy to use, the resistance bands are great to bring along while traveling so that you can stay in shape even when time does not allow you to go to a yoga studio.
Anti-slip yoga socks — for the perfect balance
If you've ever felt your feet slide on a yoga mat during a particularly long downward facing dog, you know what we are talking about. The sad truth is that most standard socks can make even the simplest yoga workout a real nightmare —and a lot of us do not feel comfortable working out barefoot. Solution? Here it comes — yoga socks are ergonomically designed and come with toe separators.
In addition to making sure you don't go sliding during your Warrior pose, they also give you freedom of movement and eliminate the discomfort caused by restrictive footwear. Xianzuxiu socks are available in several color patterns — feel free to choose the one that matches your yoga mood. Made with comfortable and breathable material, the socks are not only pleasant to wear but also much healthier than synthetic socks.
Seamless quick dry yoga bra — all the support you'll need
Feeling comfortable during a workout — and especially a yoga workout, which involves a variety of movements — is very important. Make sure your yoga clothing lets you enjoy each and every exercise in full and your mind is not occupied with wardrobe malfunctions. This specially designed quick dry seamless yoga bra is one of key essentials of your yoga outfit and will give you the ultimate comfort and peace of mind throughout your practice. Made with durable nylon material, the bra comes with great sweat absorbing and stretching effects and will also provide you with all the needed support.
