Yoga is a natural and healthy way to release stress and open the body and mind for relaxation through fluid movement and poses. But in order to do your yoga practice, you need a few basic pieces of equipment. Whether you choose to do your yoga at home or at a studio, these standard accessories are must haves. For the eco-conscious, there are organic and cotton versions of nearly all yoga equipment.

Yoga mats are a staple of any studio. Whether you practice at home or with a class, you will need a yoga mat. Other common peices of equipment are yoga bolsters, yoga props or blocks and even an eye pillow to help you reach a deeper place of relaxation while laying on the floor. In many studios, you will also find swiss balls uk and aerobic mats (most studios also hold pilates and other aerobic work out classes).

While stability and firmness is most desirable for a yoga mat, if you are looking for an eco version, note that the price tends to be higher! Ecological yoga mats are kinder on the environment and tend to be recyclable and degradable. There are also natural rubber made yoga mats (created from the rubber tree) and of course all-cotton mats.
