Yoga is an ancient practice with origins stretching back thousands of years in India. It is designed to help achieve a more positive outlook on life and a focused, permanent sense of serenity and peace. There are many forms of yoga with different objectives. So if you’re planning on taking up yoga to gain better body and mental health, we have a few yoga essentials here that you need to get to start your routine.
6mm Thick Yoga Mat (RM 29)
Yoga mats are must have items because the cushioning provides well-rounded support and is anti-slip. You’ll be doing lots of stretching and body balancing so having a mat that is durable and highly elastic is extremely important.
10mm Thick Yoga Mat (RM 59)
This is a thicker mat for those who feel they may need additional cushioning. The thick mat absorbs impact and protects joints when performing strenuous exercises. The thickness also helps to retain physical stability and strength on a variety of surfaces. What’s even cool is that the mat comes in a carrier bag so you can bring it along easily when attending your yoga classes.
3 Pairs of Yoga Socks (RM 38)
Yoga socks are also important as the open-toe design coupled with non-slip underside improves traction to help maintain posture and balance. The socks in this deal comes in three colours: black, rose red, and purple.
Yoga crop top (RM 35) & Yoga pants (RM 18)
Yoga is all about posture and it is very important for you to be able to get the correct posture in the different yoga poses. This will maximize the benefits of that particular pose and also avoid strains caused by using the wrong posture. In order to get the correct posture, try doing your yoga in front of a mirror and use spandex exercise outfits so that you have a clear view of your body. Get this yoga crop top that’s made from stretchable nylon and spandex for only RM 35 and this yoga pants for RM 18.
