Why shouldn’t your strap be a fun color instead of beige? A boon to any yoga with tight shoulders and a great shoulderstand assist to stop the elbows splaying.

For a small prop, a strap has a bunch of uses. Take a look at Yoga International’s inspired uses

Support the knees, relax the spine, open the collarbones. A bolster is a great prop for relaxation and resting poses. Don’t forget about the challenging poses though. A bolster under the torso to assist the lift in chaturanga dandasana is a great help. Give it a try!

If you haven’t invested in a bolster yet then the time has come! Just look at these dreamy restorative poses

Woollen, thick blankets have a number of uses in our practice not least of all, keeping us warm in savasana.

Yoga Towel

Very useful if you’re a hot yoga type of yogi.

Also doubles up as a coverup in savasana or neck support if lightly rolled. Extend the edge of the towel over your eyes if you’ve forgotten your eye pillow!

Although not strictly a prop, this is still a great accessory. A funky, bright yoga tote for class that easily fits your mat, towel and water bottle. A little zipped internal pocket is perfect for keys & cards.
