Bodhi Yoga Sets: Helpful for beginners and advancedIf you are just starting out with yoga, you might wonder why you need a beginner yoga set. Isn’t a non-slip yoga mat all you need? A yoga mat is in fact, the most important and certainly the most popular yoga prop. But if you practice yoga regularly, you may appreciate two other important aids: the yoga block and the yoga strap, also called a yoga belt. With a yoga set, you can make use of these from the very beginning.
To master the asanas, yoga beginners in particular will benefit from a yoga strap and a yoga block. These two yoga aids are often needed to perform certain asanas correctly when starting out. For example, if you are not yet flexible enough to put your hands on the floor in the pyramid position (Parsvottanasana), yoga blocks can give you those extra few centimetres needed to make it possible. And if your hands cannot reach each other in the Cow Face Posture (Gomukhasana), you can easily extend your arms with the belt. The props from the Yoga Beginner’s Set help you to enjoy the benefits of various asanas while maintaining proper alignment.
But even for advanced practitioners, the tools can be used to refine the alignment in the asanas and to work in advanced positions. And it may just be cheaper to buy a yoga set instead of the individual components. The yoga brick, for example, helps deepen the forward bend (Paschimottanasana, Janu Shirshasana). And with the help of the yoga belt, you can go deeper into advanced forward and backward bends without exceeding your personal limits. You will need your yoga set not only as a beginner, but also as an advanced yogi.
Rishikesh or Lotus Pro? Which Yoga beginners set is the right one?In our Yoga online shop we have five different Yoga Beginner’s Sets available. The individual sets differ mainly by the yoga mat included: ASANA, RISHIKESH Premium, GANGES, LOTUS PRO or the yoga set FLOW. In addition to the yoga mat, the yoga set always includes a 2.50 m long yoga belt with sliding buckle and a standard Asana Brick in the same color. Only in the FLOW Yoga Set, instead of a standard block, there are two XL Yoga Bricks as well as a 2.50 m long yoga belt with a double ring.
Which yoga set is the right for you, depends on which yoga mat you prefer. Many yoga beginners choose the RISHIKESH Set I. The RISHIKESH Premium Yoga Mat is our best-selling yoga mat and is often used as a studio mat in yoga studios. It is a 4.5 mm thick, non-slip and very robust PVC mat. It comes with two rubber bands and is machine washable. The yoga set ASANA Set I is similarly slip-resistant and even more affordable. The 4 mm PVC mat, which has a nub structure, is also machine-washable and is especially suitable for home use.
If you are looking for a yoga beginner set with a 6 mm yoga mat, both the GANGES set and the LOTUS PRO set would be a good choice. GANGES is a PVC mat and similar to the ASANA MAT, with a nub structure. In addition to its thickness, the GANGES is characterized by its beautiful color gradients. If you prefer a yoga mat with particularly good cushioning and a soft surface, the LOTUS PRO set is probably the right one for you. The 6 mm thick LOTUS PRO consists of the environmentally friendly and recyclable TPE and also very light.
Even more choices: More bodhi yoga setsIn addition to our four standard yoga sets, the Bodynova Yoga Online Shop offers two more sets that are perfect for beginners. One of these is the Yoga Set FLOW: with a 4 mm thick TPE mat, a 2.50 m long yoga belt with double rings and two XL Asana Bricks. It is also the only yoga beginners set with a practical yoga mat carrying strap. So, if you're looking for a yoga set with a thinner TPE mat for better traction, because you may be looking for more stability in standing poses, then this set is for you.
Another inexpensive bodhi yoga set includes a LOTUS PRO mat and the matching YOGA & SPORTS BAG. This set is for anyone looking for an eco-friendly and comfortable yoga mat and a practical yoga bag. The Sports Bag has space for your yoga accessories: yoga mat and clothing, meditation cushion, yoga bricks, yoga belt, towels - plenty of space for everything you need for your yoga practice. Especially good for yogis who do hot yoga or go to both a yoga class and a fitness center.
