Yoga Check List
When you are going for a workout, there are items you cannot miss taking with you. Be it to the gym, the swimming pool or the yoga studio, the list is similar but different because each exercise has different needs.
Planning to go for some yoga classes? Here is a check list just for you and reasons as to why you should carry them:
Water – Yes yoga is slow and not fast paced like running or the gym but it still exerts you and makes you thirsty. You need to hydrate yourself to be able to perform all the asanas. When the body does not get sufficient water, it cannot stretch much and this will affect your flexibility
Sweat Towel – Many are under the impression that yoga is simple, soft and easy, hence one will not sweat. That is wrong. When the asanas are performed correctly, the body is exerted and will break a sweat as the body gets pushed to its limits. So carry a sweat towel as you don’t want to drip sweat all over the floor, as one may slip and fall on it, in addition to it being just gross.
Attire – The clothes you wear is also very important. When you do yoga, you can still look stylish and properly attired. Apart from wearing a dri-fit or a sweat free t-shirt, wearing the right pants are also important. When you stretch or lift your legs, the pant should be sturdy and flexible enough to aid your movements rather than obstruct it. This is why you should ask around and find the best place to buy yoga pants.
Stretch Bands – Yoga involves a lot of stretching and the body cannot do much unless it is constantly flexed. It is also difficult to hold a stretched pose when the body is pushed to the limits. A stretch band will help you stretch better and give a better grip of your limbs.
