For many of us – if not as a way to slow down and unwind then as an excuse to incorporate athleisure into our sartorial choices – Yoga has found its way into our lives. Amidst tree poses and downward dogs, the 5000 year-old wellness practice has solidified its place in our daily routines and with its origin in ancient Ayurveda, it’s most certainly here to stay. Whether you’re someone that’s looking to strengthen their core or simply someone that’s looking for an excuse to indulge in self care, in celebration of World Yoga Day, here’s everything worth adding to your cart and your Asana routine –
1. Soothing Scented Candles – Veedaa
A scented candle is one of the easiest ways to foray into the world of self care. For someone that practices Yoga daily, the right blend of scents can be transformative in creating atmospheres of relaxation, concentration, and motivation. This fresh, floral scent in particular helps you unwind and strengthen focus all at once.
2. Air Purifying Plants – Plant People
If you’re the type of Yoga practitioner who has a dedicated space or studio, consider lining it with greens that will help cleanse the air. Not only will this create a space that’s relatively free of toxins, it will also make your studio a lot more fresh and lively. Our tip? Use this as an opportunity to add a set of chic, sculptural planters to your space.
3. Fragrant Incense Sticks – Vata Living
Incense sticks aren’t limited to occasions or rituals. An easy addition to your practice, you can light one when you’re beginning your routine. Incense sticks require minimal attention and last quite long.
4. Cork Yoga Blocks – Dvaar
If you’re not a novice and are well acquainted with conventional yoga blocks, consider switching to this eco-friendly alternative. Crafted from cork, they get the job done! They’re minimal, sustainable, and range from lightweight to heavy.
5. Sustainable Yoga Mat – Kosha Yoga
These mats are a testament to the fact that a product can be both sustainable and on-trend! A combination of fashion and functionality, they come in a range of colours, prints, and patterns. Have one handy for when you’re indulging in a floor routine.
6. Earthy Water Carafe – Ellementry

9. Cosy Floor Cushions – Amber Stitch
A comfortable floor cushion can be the ideal companion for any one whose aim is to rid themselves of back aches and pains via Yoga. You can use yours to support your lower back while practising floor routines. We’re fans of intricate floral prints in toned down colours.
