A few things to note when it comes to equipment…
For anyone starting yoga, all you really need is a good mat and clothes that you can comfortably stretch and sweat in. Your mat can become a bit slippery, so it’s best to purchase a non-slip mat. Most studios have wooden floors so thick mats are nice, but if you’re practising on carpet at home, go for a thinner mat. If you’re prone to sore joints, getting a slightly thicker mat may be more comfortable, especially for your wrists and knees. We’ve found a few that’ll do the trick!
Lulu Lemon offers a good quality rubber yoga mat with a non-slip top, for $79. Available here.
Gaiam offers a thick and comfortable yoga mat for $65.50, which is great for beginners. Available here.
Alo is a sustainable, ethical brand which offers a high-end yoga mat for $160, which is thicker and wider than average. It’s well suited for those invested in long-term yoga practice, or those seeking comfort, and this mat will last much longer than cheap alternatives. Available here.
Kmart offers a $22 cork top yoga mat, which is non-slip, light and thin. This is a great low-budget mat, ideal for those who want to try out yoga but may be unsure if they’ll pursue it. Available here.
