What you need and what to wear for yoga

With the economy where it is today, it is nice to know that yoga practice does not require a major purchase.

You don’t need special equipment to practice yoga. An easy to carry yoga mat and blanket will do

Here are some great neighborhood retail outlets to purchase yoga clothing:

- Barefoot Yoga Co
. is an online store but since they are based in Seattle, they can arrange for pick-up or give you 1/2 off for shipping.

Yoga Mats Go Eco!
If you’re in the market for a new yoga mat, get your asanas on an eco mat! Selecting an eco yoga mat is a perfect choice as you pose your way to enlightenment and inner peace in your yoga practice. This eco-friendly mat truly looks the part. Made of jute and part rubber, it has a slightly rougher texture from the fibers running through it, helping make it more grippy and less slippy. It is very lightweight, but still maintains a little cushiness.

For Some Things It's OK to Be Sticky (Yoga Mats)

Rated # 1 Environmentally Friendly Yoga Mat

1. ECO YOGA MAT. $45, www.barefootyoga.com. Ms. Kleinman “really liked” this mat made of jute and fiber. The visible fibers on the top side provided a "slightly rough texture" and "grippy" surface. The mat was thin enough to fold and had a solid, not too squishy surface for standing without wobbles, but still was padded enough for lying-down work.

A little reminder of OM
The symbol of “OM”, the timeless symbol for the sound of creation, summoning spiritual bliss and wisdom from generation to generation, is a visual reminder to relax.
