About all this kit…..
I know! We expect a lot of our students when it comes to the tools of practice – but it is for good reason, so we can ALL gain the boons and benefits of a deeply penetrating yoga practice. Why not have a yoga bag full of helpful tools that serve you well….You don’t need to navigate the thousands of options on the internet ( but if you do..choose reputable retailers like Yoga Matters) you can keep it simple and purchase from my own shop! Available at class or if you’re remaining at home I will deliver locally. Check out the Shop page on the website for an idea of what you’ll need and what I’ve got!
To purchase any kit please contact me or see me at your regular class.

Support, stabilise and align your body with these lightweight yoga blocks. Sit on one to raise your hips for a straighter spine or put four together for a classic shoulder stand support. I currently stock teal, berry, grey ice and purple which can be combined with mats, bricks and bolsters of varying colours. Consider these as part of your basic kit.
Bricks are ideal for adding lift or grounding in all manner of poses. They can help stabilise and add height in standing and balancing poses or can be placed between the knees to activate the outer leg muscles. start with one and head quickly to a pair. Berry, teal and purple are classic colour tones that combine well with the range of mats, foams and bolsters currently in stock.
Belts are regularly used in forward bends to extend and lengthen reach. Also used effectively to hold elbows in place in inversion poses. Hold legs close in restorative work. Actually, loads of possibilities! This classic cotton belt, with its sliding bar metal buckle, is a favourite in Iyengar studios (and village halls!) across the world.

Blankets made from indian cotton, beautiful and soft natural yarn. We use these blankets in our practice every session, to simply bring softness and quietness to the head in savasana or to providing a comfortable support in shoulder stand, and all manner of half, quarter, triple fold permutations for supporting our asana and pranayama practice. Lush thrown over the sofa too!! Machine washable.
Bolsters; The cylindrical bolsters double up as a beautiful feature in any room! Earth friendly, natural range for restorative and general practice. The bolsters support the back and can also be used to raise the hips when sitting, placed length ways under the mid back to open up the chest and for support in shoulder stand variations (particularly chair sarvangasana).
