  1. From personal experience, all you really need is a mat, a book and/or DVDs to practice at home. And if you’re not that flexible, you should get a yoga strap and yoga bricks.

    So, as far as the equipment above, they are more catered to (but not limited to) those specific programs or programs like it.

    It also, just boils down to how much money you’re willing to spend. Amazon.com has good prices on yoga DVDs, books and equipment/kits and you can get free shipping on items over $24.

    I also know from personal experience that a stability ball is a good piece of equipment to have, but of course, not necessary to have a successful yoga practice.

    Have fun!
