Today we have many different styles of yoga that combine movement, stretching, breathing techniques and meditation in different proportions and levels of intensity all done with the express intent to develop your mental and physical wellbeing.

Yoga can literally be done anywhere with no equipment. There’s even such a thing as bed yoga which is a variation or sequence of yoga that you do in bed either before going to sleep or upon waking up. However, since you’re most likely going to want to explore more variations here are some equipment recommendations.
Yoga Mat ー this is probably the only essential piece of equipment that will help you get into your poses without slipping and protect your limbs and back from the hardness of the floor
Stretching Strap ー an optional addition that will help you increase flexibility, particularly helpful for those poses that you can’t quite reach yet
Yoga Block ー another optional and very helpful tool to assist with progression and modify poses for easier variations
