So you've signed up for a yoga class and are on your way to becoming a complete addict to this relaxing, healthy venture. You'll need a few accessories to get started, but don't fear that these items will be overly consuming or pricey. All you really need is a basic yoga mat, perhaps a yoga towel, and some good yoga apparel. But, the further you get into it, the more you'll realize that the yoga world is actually quite an experience. There are more accessories that you probably realized existed! First you'll find the wide array of size and color options for your yoga mat. You can get natural, rubber, cotton, printed, striped, and even extra-thick yoga mats. And, to go a step further, there are rectangular as well as circular yoga mats. Beyond the traditional mats are the mat rolls which are for extended length mats. Then you have yoga straps and yoga belts to increase the benefits of the strengthening and toning exercises. Furthermore, there are yoga blocks in foam, cork, or wood, and again, in a variety of sizes. You can find yoga blankets and yoga bolsters, yoga wedges and towels. Plus, there are yoga balls for balance exercises and sandbags for extra weight or deepening stretches. You'll have yoga clothing, accessories cleaners, and yoga gifts, finishing the experience entirely with special music and yoga DVDs. All of this to say, whether you intend to or not, you're going to need to get a sturdy, large yoga bag shortly, because you'll be a yoga junkie in no time. It is common to find specific bags for your yoga mat, eye pillow, or towels, but you just might need something a little more accommodating. Consider using any typical sports duffel with several pockets and organizational spaces. Yoga accessory companies do even offer a variety of bag products for this need, though you still might be better off hitting the sports equipment aisle in your local department store just to save some money. Choose something that is well-made and sturdy with a strong handle for toting all your stuff.
