An advantage of incorporating yoga practice as part of an individual's exercise program is that it does not require any fancy equipment. Yoga can be practiced anywhere - indoors, outdoors on the grass, or even on sand at the beach. Typically, a yoga mat or rug is used. Latex-free and eco-friendly mats are also available. Having some facial tissue within arms reach comes in handy during breathing exercises when the individual needs to clear his/ her nostrils. Yoga props such as blocks and straps aid in practicing an asana safely, as well as help the individual go deeper into a pose. An eye pillow and a light blanket can be used during deep relaxation.
