Are you just getting into yoga? Maybe you've been practicing for quite some time, or you are actively looking for ways to advance your practice. Either way the tools we use in our practice, can enhance our yoga experience, whether it's helping us get into a pose, relax deeper into the moment or just offer overall support.

ESSENTIALS AND MORE
Some great options for consistent yoga students, all three have great grip. The Prolite is great for travelling as it's relatively lighter than the Pro. The Pro is great for hot yoga or if you sweat alot. If you are just starting out Gaiam is a solid option.
Blocks are my favorite things to use and teach with. The Manduka cork has a great feel to it, though a little heavy. The Gaiam is the most standard in terms of weight and texture. Reehut's are realitvely thinner than the rest and super light.
YOGA INVERSION BENCH
To anyone scared to go upside down, these inversion benches can really change that. All three work well on making you feel super supported, it's a matter of budget on which one you decide.
Yoga balls can be amazing at assisting you in maintaining better posture, up leveling your work outs and adding creative stretches to your day. I recommend finding the ideal one for your needs as each come with some extra props.
Clients love these! They are great at enhancing your yoga practice and using for assitance in deepening stretches or poses. The basic Gaiam is my go-to but all three work great.
Foam rolling works! Great on upper back, glutes and subsituting a block. All three get the job done, the Grid foam roller tends to push into pressure points, giving a different sensation when you roll than they other two options. Though you can glide easier on those.
