In this video, we’ll talk about the equipment you *can* have for yoga class. The truth is, you really don’t need anything to get started with yoga. In fact, even some basic yoga mats can be more slippery and harder to work with than just practicing on your carpeted surface or the floor in your house.

Of course, not everyone feels comfortable spreading out on their floor (especially if you have kids or pets, which always seem to leave SOMETHING on the floor!). And for that reason, we include in this video what to look for when purchasing yoga equipment.

Here are some topics we explore in this video:
+ What to look for in a yoga mat
+ Do you need a yoga mat to practice yoga?
+ What to look for in yoga blocks
+ What to look for in yoga straps
+ Bolsters and blankets: what we use and what to look for

Our current favorite mats are B Mats.They are delightfully grippy, with plenty of cushion and support for your knees.
