This post is sponsored by prAna. Thank you for supporting brands that support me.
I do the majority of my working out at home but recently I signed up for a gym membership. I need the bigger weights and cardio machines and it’s close to work which saves me time in the morning. There are many days though that I like to workout at home followed by stretching or quick yoga flow. It not only helps your body cool down but gets in a good stretch too. Here are my favorite yoga essentials for practicing at home.
7 Yoga Essentials for Practicing at Home
1. YOGA FAN
This is such a good resource to practice yoga at home. There are tips and modifications as well as poses and flows for you to try.
I cannot live without a strap. Not only just for yoga but for stretching in general. If you’re like me, you’re not as flexible as you may want to be. Having a strap on hand can help you get a good stretch and help you get into poses that you don’t quite have the flexibility to do.
This book is a daily reflection that you can incorporate into your daily life. They’re are 365 reflections that help integrate mindfulness. I love the messages in this book and it’s easy to read and understand. Definitely a must have.
I love YogaDownload.com! You can download flows to keep on your devices when you don’t want to stream or you can practice at home right online. There are so many different yoga types to try and even Pilates.
5. YOGA MAT
Having a quality yoga mat is essential. You don’t want one that starts falling apart after a couple of uses or has you slipping all over the place. Gaiam makes really nice ones with fun patterns. See them here.
Another must have for the inflexible haha! A lot of poses call for you to have your hands on the floor or hips down. Think of the blocks as an extension of your body. Here’s some examples of how they can be used to have a stronger and more grounded practice.
7. prAna OUTFIT
It’s no secret that I love prAna clothing. They are a sustainable brand and mindfully made to support fair trade. That is two of the many reasons why I love them.
They not only have clothes for yoga and fitness but for hiking, water sports, and even work. For example, this Petra top! I tie it up so that I can wear it to workout in but you can also pair it with some jeans and cute wedges for a casual work look.
They are made up of a blend of soft hemp, organic cotton, and stretch material is gusseted for extra stretch and comfort. I absolutely love the fit and comfort of these pants.
You can get the top and pants or anything else your little heart desires at 15% off with coupon code MSS17CC!
