Yoga Shop

In the Yoga Shop, you’ll find my picks for the best yoga gear you can find. I prefer the minimalist approach to accumulating yoga stuff–I like just a few different things, but I make sure that the things I do acquire are the best available for what I need them to do. Out of all the millions of different options of yoga stuff out there, these are the things I recommend.

I’m a big fan of relaxing music, not only during my practice but just as a background of beautiful and soothing sounds while I’m at home or working. I have a huge list of them on my i-pod also (for when I’m traveling), so these are just a couple of my favorite CDs.

If you have some great ones, please share them in the comments. I like to keep my music updated, and I’m sure the folks reading here would love your suggestions, too.


  • The Escapes CD is kind of like escaping to a dreamlike alternate reality. Soothing and a little jazzy, it always transports me to far away locales. I love it for background music when I’m working.

  • The Meditate CD is very exotic; Tibetan bells and gongs, chant-like vocalizations, the haunting resonance of the English horn and the Indonesian flute. A great CD for meditation and introspection or for late evening before going to bed. Calming and soothing to my soul.

  • Breathe with Rodney Yee CDBreathe CD with Rodney YeeThis CD is definitely one you should have in your library. These are some fantastic guided breathing exercises and yoga that are guaranteed to get you feeling centered and relaxed. The entire aim of yoga is to get you into a physically strong foundation in order to meditate better and longer as well as breathe better and more consciously. It’s a good practice to get into, and I try to dedicate some time to at least a couple of times a week.

  • 101 Songs to Help You RelaxThere’s plenty of music here for a soothing backdrop to your day. I like this one for home, the office, and my car. It’s the kind of music they put on at spas, and it’s just perfect for a non-intrusive but very relaxing sound.

  • 55 Relaxing ClassicsIf you’re not particularly into the ‘eastern’ sounding music, then this is a great CD for you. Very relaxing and mostly classical piano music, you’re sure to recognize most of the songs on this album. I love this one for home and driving back from the office. It’s also great for yoga practice.

  • AM Yoga Meditations Guided meditations are an incredible and very effective way to relax. You really feel the results from the very first time. I like Gael’s voice–it’s both soothing and engaging and guides you to clear your mind so you can consciously and purposefully create a positive and energetic day. Pick this one up–you will thank me for it!

  • neti potsNeti Pot The first time using a neti pot is a very strange sensation. But it’s an amazing, wonderful little gadget. Thanks to my neti pot, it’s been years since I last had a cold! I recommend you get someone that already knows how to use it to show you. It’s actually all in the angle that you stand and put your head. All it takes is doing it right once, and you’ll get the hang of it.

  • Yoga Mat
    A good mat is the one and only thing that you absolutely need (other than the dvd’s!) for your yoga or pilates practice. Make sure your mat is a good one. Otherwise, you risk slipping around or hurting your bones if it’s too thin. This one is fabulous because it is lightweight, extra quilted, and made of highly-absorbent microfiber on one side with a standard PVC non-skid surface on the other. It is also free of the six most harmful phthalates, making it a great and eco-friendly choice both for you and the planet.

  • Yoga Mat BagYoga Mat Carry Bag
    Because for every mat, you need a bag! Sleek, stylish and made in linen–I love my carry bag. It’s perfect for taking your own mat to the gym, yoga class or when you’re travelling. This one is my top choice.

  • Yoga Mat Sling BagYoga Mat Sling
    Because every gal has a different style, here’s another option. You can sling your yoga mat in a stylish way and carry it wherever you go while always looking good!

Juicer for healthy yoga routineThe Lalanne Juicer has been an essential part of my yoga routine for a few years now, and I honestly don’t know what I would do without it. I’ts affordable and easy to use, I especially love that you can put the whole fruit or veggie in there without having to peel it and cut it. And although yes, you do have to clean it afterwards, it still worth it for me. This way I get all my veggies and fruits in every single day, whether I cook them or not! A fresh fruit juice after your practice feels healthy and refreshing in a way that nothing else does.
