Don't know what you need to get started?  No worries!  Here are our suggestions on how you can substitute using things you may have in home.

If you are ready to buy your yoga 
materials, you may click on the pictures to find suggested brands on amazon. 


If you don't have a bolster, we encourage you to invest in one (or two!). The ones we recommend are 100% cotton and fairly inexpensive. The quality they can add to your practice is significant. Until you get one, pillows or cushions are substitutes.

It will be used in almost every class. We prefer the ones made with cotton. (Please avoid the elastic ones.) If you are tall, make sure you don't buy a short one. You can start with a belt or scarf until you get a strap.

*Sandbags need to be filled. We fill them with 6.6 lbs of sand. We recommend using pool sand (20 weight pool filter sand). 

*beginning students do not use sandbags. 


You can substitute sand bags with bags of rice or beans. No problem in using lighter weight if you feel more conformable with less weight. 


yoga mat

There is a large variety of yoga mats online and in shops. We recommend not buying anything thinner than 5 mm but also not too thick, in case you want to easily carry it around. You can use a rug or blanket for floor classes but a sticky mat or stable surface should be used for standing poses.

If you don't have a yoga block, you can use a thick book. Two yoga blocks are recommended. 


Tripod for your device

A tripod to hold your phone (or low table for a laptop) is nice for positioning your device so you can best see the teacher and teacher see you. (When joining the live classes remember to keep lights on. We  also recommend the camera to be positioned on your side at minimum 4-5 feet. In this way we  can see you and make the specific adjustments when necessary.
