11 Best Yoga Products For Beginners

When I was first starting out and doing research into what I would need to practice yoga, I felt a little lost. There are so many products out there, many of them very costly, that it feels overwhelming. I compiled a short list here of items that I personally found helpful when starting out, and things I still use today.

When I was first starting out and doing research into what I would need to practice yoga, I felt a little lost. There are so many products out there, many of them very costly, that it feels overwhelming. I compiled a short list here of items that I personally found helpful when starting out, and things I still use today. If you’re a beginner, I hope you find something here that helps make it easier and more fun for you to begin your yoga journey!

1. Gaiam Grippy Toeless Yoga Socks

I personally own these, and they are such a helpful tool if you’re having any problems with balance in certain poses. They are also very comfortable.

2. Syrinx High Waisted Leggings for Women

I bought one pair of these the first time, and they were so comfy that I ended up going back and purchasing two more pairs. I really couldn’t say enough good things about these, and I end up wearing a pair at least once a week.

3. Light on Yoga: The Bible of Modern Yoga

This was written by B.K.S Iyengar himself and details not only the Asanas, but also the philosophy of Iyengar Yoga and the lifestyle that accompanies it.

4. Balance From GoYoga 1/2 Yoga Mat

This is my current personal mat, and it is my favorite one that I’ve ever owned. It’s durable, it’s easy to keep clean, and it’s super comfortable.

5. Gaiam Essentials Yoga Block 2 Pack & Yoga Strap Set

Blocks and straps are a fantastic tool to have when you’re beginning your yoga practice. They are incredibly helpful in getting into poses that you may not be able to without them, and I love my yoga strap for helping to warm my muscles up.

6. Restrial Life Yoga Headstand Bench

If you’re working towards or working on Inversion poses, this seems like an absolutely ideal tool to have.

7. The Perfect Yoga Towel

This towel is great if you practice Bikram or Hot Yoga. It also guarantees a 100% refund if you don’t love it.

8. Asutra Natural & Organic Yoga Mat Cleaner

This mat cleaner is organic and natural, which for me is the best thing about it. You don’t have to clean your mat with a traditional cleaner and end up putting your skin on something that has all kinds of chemicals on it. It also has a nice Lavender scent and comes with a microfiber cloth just for cleaning.

9. BalanceFrom GoYoga 7-Piece Set

When I first started getting into yoga, I received this as a gift from my fiancé. It’s so great for beginners, and honestly, anyone, who practices yoga. It has a really nice mat with a carrying strap, two blocks, a knee mat, a yoga strap, and two towels. This set is perfect for someone just starting out.

10. REEHUT Yoga Wheel for Back Pain

This is great for massaging out any sore muscles in your back or shoulders, and also helps you improve your flexibility. This would also be helpful if you’re working on beginning backbends.

11. The Yoga Anatomy Coloring Book

I love this because it’s going to educate you on exactly which muscles you’re working in certain asanas, and possibly help you know what correct form should feel like.

I hope that you find some of these helpful, and if there is anything you found particularly helpful when first starting out, please let me know in the comments!
