Fun Facts About Equipment for Yoga
Yoga was initially only practised as a meditative and spiritual ritual in ancient India, with the benefits of yoga as a form of exercise, only taking off in the 20th century in the Western world and with it came the equipment we use today.
- • Why the mat? Considering the poses that yoga entails, you need a surface that you can securely and confidently place your feet and hands on, without the possibility of slipping and hurting yourself.
- • Straps. As you might have seen, our kit includes one strap with a D-ring. The straps might be the lesser-known equipment. The 6, 8 and 10-foot straps are used in yoga to stretch your body and to give you a wider range of motion than you would have without one.
- • Blocks. The yoga blocks usually come in foam, bamboo, or cork, and they provide support during certain poses. Also increasing your range of motion, it further serves as support for the back, hips and knees and makes it easier for the body to go into a particular pose.
There are different styles of yoga, each with its own set of poses, purpose, and outcomes. It ultimately doesn't matter which style of yoga you do; the mind, body and soul benefits will be evident.
Doing yoga ourselves, the idea of this kit came to us during a yoga class, and we wanted to put this into being by firstly, eliminating the need to carry around a bulky, awkwardly shaped yoga mat, by making a foldable one. From the recyclable backpack to zero waste packing in the form of bio-degradable, compostable bubble wrap, we keep to our vision and promise to you and nature.
