We recommend this round bolster.You can also make your own bolster using a heavy blanket or pillow. See video above.

Yoga mats are a personal choice based on height, and budget. We recommend having two yoga mats. Any of these will work nicely. 

Michael recommends two yoga blocks. These are standard large yoga blocks, which measure  5″ x 12″ x 6″.
Unfortunately Michael’s giant yoga blocks are no longer in production. These work nicely while we will continue to search for a new source. 

The basic yoga strap. This Quick-Release style strap is great for anyone who doesn’t want to hassle with threading a D-Ring or Cinch buckle.

For advanced students, we recommend two sandbags. You can begin with two 10lb sandbags. For comparison, see the 15lbs sandbags. 

These are the sandbags Micheal uses in his advanced yoga classes. He recommends two. 

This thick heavy blanket can also be used in place of a bolster. See this video of how to make a bolster:

Folding Chair

We recommend two folding chairs for many of our classes. 
Please note: Michael no longer recommends using a standard folding chair because in recent experience they have not been sturdy enough to hold his weight. Therefore are not safe for our students. We are in search of a safe affordable option. 

Free your hands and slip this unique & colorful carrier over your shoulder! Fits most yoga mats.
