There is no need to spend an excessive amount of money on the items needed to get you started. There are many exercises that are done on the floor, so a good yoga mat is necessary for your comfort.
Yoga blocks are great for beginners. The blocks help you get in to posses and maintain the appropriate posture when you can not reach the floor.
And its important that you choose clothing that allows you to move the full range of motion with comfort.
I apologize for my inability to provide what hot products are available due to I am still in the learning stage and not ready to team up at this point in time with the companies that are responsible for the trending yoga products. Once I get on board with this brilliant new career choice of mine. I will redeem myself.
