In a busy world packed with stimulants and ever-growing to-do lists, it is important to take some time out now and again to relax, wind down and reconnect. Yoga is heralded by many as the ultimate exercise, as it is accessible to most people of varying ages, fitness and abilities and promotes mental and physical health. There are plenty of yoga fads that might not be around in 6 months’ time, but true yogic principles have been around for millennia and have undoubtedly stood the test of time.
Part of the beauty of yoga is that it can be practiced anywhere with minimal equipment. However, having the right equipment can help to motivate you even on low motivation days.
