7 Essential Yoga and Pilates Accessories you need for a better workout

Beyond a mere form of exercise, yoga is a discipline that involves the physical, the mental and spiritual aspect of being. Practicing it only involves a few basic types of equipment, and many yoga practitioners recommend purchasing better quality essentials for longevity and safety reasons. Read on to discover some of the most recommended accessories to take your next workout to the next level.

#1 Yoga Mat

If yoga is something you pursue as an integral part of your weekly or daily routine – a more durable, high quality mat is a better option. High quality yoga mats run a bit pricey but are worth it in the long run as they prove to last a longer time and are more comfortable, and safer to use.


Manduka PRO Yoga and Pilates Mat

Standard: 7.5 lbs; 71″ x 26″; 6 mm thick. Extra Long: 9.5 lbs; 85″ x 26″; 6 mm thick

Manduka’s Pro Yoga Mat features a closed-cell surface to keep moisture and sweat from seeping into the mat and breeding bacteria (ideal for hot yoga). The high-density cushion provides joint protection, and versatility on any surface with a fabric-like surface finish. 

Optimal for moving between poses, the high quality material will not peel, flake or fade and the product improves with use over time.

#2 Yoga Towel

Yoga towels help to keep you from sliding, and keeps your mat cleaner especially if you tend to sweat a lot.  If hot yoga classes or vinyasa and power flow classes are part of your regime, having a yoga towel becomes a basic necessity to ensure your towel doesn’t budge as you work your way through a variety of postures.
