Yoga Props

The props, tools, and clothes I use & love

 

If you’re just starting out and don’t want to spend a lot of money upfront, get the bare minimum! It doesn’t cost much to buy a yoga mat in department stores and you can be creative with the rest! Books can work as makeshift yoga blocks, belts as makeshift yoga straps, etc. Practicing yoga doesn’t have to cost anything. 

If you’re ready to invest in quality yoga gear this page includes some of my personal favourites.

Jade Yoga Harmony Mat eco-friendly and sustainable yoga mat

Jade Yoga Harmony Mat

I’ve been practicing on Jade Yoga’s harmony mat since 2018. It’s a thick rubber mat and keeps the majority of its stickyness when it becomes wet and sweaty. The thick mat provides a great cushion for the knees and the rest of the body in the different yoga poses. It comes in heaps of different muted and vibrant colours. It also comes in different lengths which is super nice for tall people like me!

Favourite Yoga Props

Gaiam foam yoga block discount

Gaiam Foam Yoga Block

Gaiam’s foam yoga blocks are the only ones I’ve owned. They’re a bit bigger than regular blocks, which is quite nice because it makes them easier to use. They’re super light and comes in a variety of different colours.


Gaiam Yoga Strap

Gaiam Yoga Strap

I’ve always preferred yoga straps with a metal buckle over plastic ones because they’re more user friendly and last longer. Gaiam’s yoga straps come in different colours and lengths.


Gaiam Yoga Bolster Premium

Gaiam Yoga Premium Round Bolster

Big and sturdy bolster perfect as cushioning in restorative and reclined yoga poses.


 

Massage balls for neck tension and myofascial release. Lacrosse balls to use for foam rolling and releasing and relieving tight and sore muscles

 

Massage Balls

Massage lacrosse balls are so great for relieving sore and tense muscles. I use these all the time to release tension in my upper back after a full day of sitting in front of a desk. They’re great for myofascial release and trigger point massage.


Foam Roller myofascial release and well-being release sore and tense muscles

Foam Roller

Foam Rollers are also great for myofascial release and to relieve tension in sore and tense muscles.

Gaiam cork Yoga Brick discount yoga wear

Gaiam Yoga Cork Brick

The cork brick is more sturdy and great if you’re looking for mroe solid support in balancing postures.


Gaiam Yoga Wheel discount

Gaiam Cork Yoga Wheel

A yoga wheel is great for opening up your upper spine and shoulders. It’s helped me find lots more comfort and ease in my backbends to use a yoga wheel. It’s also fun to balance on and you can do some super tough core exercises using a yoga wheel too.


FeetUp ® Trainer inversion chair for yoga, acroyoga, and inversions.

FeetUp® Trainer Trainer

The FeetUp® Trainer is an inversion chair, that helps take your practice upside down whilst sparing the head and wrists from carrying the weight. It’s fun and it’s great for building body awareness upside down to improve your balance in yoga, handstands, and acroyoga.


Gaiam Yoga Bolster Meditation Pillow

Gaiam Yoga Premium Rectangular Bolster

Flat, rectangular bolster very suitable as a meditation cushion or for reclined yoga poses that need less support.


Resistance Bands for yoga

Resistance Bands

Resistance bands are so great to use because you can incorporate pulling movements into your yoga practice to make it much more functional. Kathryn Bruni Young has some great yoga classes with resistance bands online, like this one. Your shoulders will thank you if you use resistance bands!

 

 

Handstand Tools

My favourite handstand canes, blocks, parallettes…

Handstand wooden parallettes for arm balances, hand balancing, and calisthenics such as dips and push-ups

Wooden Handstand Parallettes

Practicing handstands on parallettes provides a nice way to change up your handstand practice and give your wrist a different kind of load if you’re dealing with wrist pain. I use small, wooden parallettes such as these at home.


Wooden Handstand Blocks for practicing arm balance drills and advanced handstand drills

Wooden Handstand Blocks

Practicing handstands on blocks provides a nice way to change up your handstand practice too! Handstanding becomes slightly easier because you can grip around the sides of the block. The blocks can be used for all sorts of handstand drills too.

Handstand wooden parallel bars for arm balances, hand balancing, and calisthenics such as dips and push-ups

Wooden Handstand Parallel Bars

If you’re looking for longer parallel bars, these ones come in two different lengths.


Handstand canes wooden yoga prop

Handstand Canes

Practicing handstands on canes is great for learning new tricks, since it’s easier to balance on canes. You can buy handstand canes through the link below but I actually recommend getting custom made, collapsable ones if you want to be able to bring them along with you.
