Namaste! Welcome to the only guide you need to the best yoga accessories. Whether you’re new to this or an experienced yogi, all these products will help you.
Yoga is a great way to ground yourself, both during pregnancy and after giving birth.
Having a baby is magical, but it does change your body in different ways. Don’t feel comfortable going to a class any more? You can exercise at home following a YouTube tutorial on gentle yoga. You can choose to support yourself with blocks that’ll help you balance, buy a pair of socks that’ll help you grip to the floor or treat yourself to a cute new water bottle.
These yoga accessories aren’t just for use at home; why not find a local mum and baby yoga class, where you can meet like-minded parents and put these amazing tools to the test. What better way to spend your morning then by chilling out with ambient sounds in the background, focusing on your breathing? Especially if your little one is there with you.
OK, now to all the exciting stuff. Here are some of the best yoga accessories that’ll help any mum to relax. Go on, give it a try.
If you’re new to yoga or found that your body has changed during pregnancy, then blocks and a strap will support your practice. Whether you use these accessories to improve your flexibility, strengthen your form or ensure stretching is more comfortable, they’ll help to prevent muscle strain or injury.
When you’ve just become a mum, it’s important to remember to do stuff for you. One big thing that everyone forgets about is exercising! You’re thinking about everything else, so I’m not surprised. A yoga class is great because it’s a chance to get out of the house, socialise and move your body. Treat yourself to this cute yoga mat bag, so that you can carry all your essentials with you.
While you’re pregnant and practising yoga, it’s essential to keep your balance. These yoga socks will allow you to hold certain positions better because of the grips on the bottom. Making it easier to master moves like Bridge Pose – which helps to reduce fatigue and anxiety.
Pregnancy glow is a nice way to describe hot flushes and sweaty outbreaks, right? It’s not at all pretty, but you can turn it around with headbands. Whether you’re working out in the comfort of your home or attending a local class, it’ll help keep your hair from sticking to your face and well out of the way.
Instead of throwing out your yoga mat when it gets a bit pongy, all you need to do is freshen it up with this yoga mist. It’s 100% made of natural ingredients, including lavender, bergamot and tea tree. As you probably can imagine, the scent helps you to relax, which is what every mum-to-be needs.
Love to practice yoga in your living room? Sink your toes into this super soft yoga mat. It might sound strange, but if you spray your towel lightly with water at the beginning of your practice, it’ll help you hold your grip better. And, this isn’t a pun because of its water design, this legitimately works.
This might look like a torture chamber, but I promise you it’s not! There are lots of gentle poses that you practice using a yoga wheel. Experienced yogis can try backbends in the first trimester but generally, use this for moves like Warrior One.
All new mums and mums-to-be must keep themselves well hydrated. Before any practice, ensure you fill up a bottle to drink from. If you haven’t got one already, you can treat yourself to this pretty Chilly’s water bottle.
