A yoga mat may be considered essential, but these other yoga props can be very helpful while working on flexibility and balance in your poses. Incorporating these additional yoga accessories into your routine will help you deepen your yoga exercises, while allowing you to maintain proper alignment.
Yoga Wedges are great for those with problem wrists or ankles. OffersYoga Balls the desired stability in otherwise challenging poses. Choose between eco-friendly cork yoga wedge or a foam yoga wedge.
Yoga Bolsters are used in Pre-Natal yoga, Senior yoga, and are a great prop in any restorative or rejuvenation pose. In some poses, it's even nice to have two yoga bolsters. Choose between a rectangular yoga bolster or a round yoga bolster. Generally, the rectangle shaped bolster feels more stable, while the round is taller in diameter and can provide more opening.

Yoga Sandbags are also used in restorative or rejuvenation poses, to practice breathing exercises, and used for weight training and toning. Your new yoga sandbag will be shipped empty and ready to be filled with any dry item such as rice, beans, sand, etc. to your desired weight (up to 10lbs). We recommend that studios buy different colors to fill to different weights so students can quickly identify which weighted sandbag is right for their practice.
