TPE yoga mats are very durable and can last you years, as long as you keep them clean and give them some care.

To clean, just use cloth or towel to wipe down or wash with mild soap and water and let air dry.

Please Note:

1.Don’t use a washing machine or dryer.

2. After use, pls roll the mat up, pls don’t fold, to avoid the mat appeared folding traces

Water Bottle review


This should get you on your way to a life as a yogi practitioner.

Many yoga studio’s provide mats and the other items you will more than likely have at home.

Don’t feel you need to go out and spend a lot of money to get started.

These are only suggestions for you.

Best to just get started with your yoga practice and worry later about all the extras you may want later.

I would love to hear your thoughts about this post or this site in general.

I will answer all the comments on my website personally so drop me a line below if you have any Yoga questions or comments.

I’m happy to help any way that I can.

  1. I not much of a yoga person but I never really gave it a try and my opinion might change if I do. My girlfriend on the other hand is and she has been wanting a good Yoga mat so coming across this site has helped make a decision on which one I should get.

    However, now that I have come across your site my list has grown… Now I will not only be getting her a mat but a towel, socks, yoga block and bag. Is there anything else I should get for someone into yoga but is still kind of a beginner?

    • Hello Salvatore, 

      Thank You for taking the time to read my article. Happy to hear your interest in yoga has begun. As far as buying anymore yoga props that you may need. I believe you have suggested more than enough accessories. 

      Regards Shane.

  2. Thanks so much for listing the equipment for a beginner yoga practice. Recently I decided to start practicing Yoga with my mom in the home, because we don’t feel to sign in some Yoga classes yet. I want to ask about yoga towel. Is there a need to buy a specific Yoga towel? We don’t use towel and just run to the bath to wash ourselves. Thank you.

    • Hello Alblue, 

      Thank You for the comments. Happy to hear you are doing yoga. A normal towel from your home will be fine at first. If later you try a yoga class in a studio maybe buy a specialised towel. 

      Regards Shane.

  3. This is really cool. With all the stress and obstacles we go through in our lives, it is easy to let your mind slip into a pattern of negative thinking. I know because this is exactly what happened to me and it not only affected me but also the people close to me as well. But I finally realize that I was only hurting myself in the long run and I am now trying to change my ways. I read that yoga is a great way to get the body and mind in shape so I am going to start doing that. But the only thing is that I don’t know the first thing about Yoga which is why that I am glad i came across your article. Exactly what I needed. Great article, definitely going to check some of this gear out and share this on my Facebook.

    • Hello Garrett, 

      Yoga may help with all the negative thoughts we all have. Sometimes it is hard to know how to get started. I am glad this post has helped you begin your yoga journey. 

      Regards Shane.

  4. As I advance in age I have begun to think about non-traumatic exercises such as yoga. Your views of the subject have renewed my interest. I like how you start off with the 7 yoga essential and follow-up with a comprehensive table of contents that allows one to click into various related and interesting topics. You did a great job of explaining how important the mat is, its costs, care and keeping it in proper condition so that it helps your stay properly aligned. You also well-explained considerations related to the towel, water bottle, yoga block, and strap. Your links to Amazon were all well placed. Do you recommend doing yoga daily? If so, is there a particular time of day you would suggest?

    Your writeup has spurred me into action and I plan to begin yoga by purchasing items from your site. I’m fortunate to have run across your information. I intend to benefit from it.

    Thank you for enlightening me.

    God bless you!

    • Hello Robert, 

      Thank You for the postive comments i really appreciate it. As far as doing yoga everyday is up to you. If you have the time go for it. One to two times a week to begin with is also ok. 

      All the Best, Regards  Shane.

  5. I have been wanting to start doing yoga but didn’t know what equipment I would need. Your list certainly makes it easier and more realistic for me to start. You give some very useful tips and hints on caring for mats and other equipment as well so there is no longer any excuses for me not to jump in and start.

    • Hello Line, 

      Appreciate you taking the time to read my post. No excuses now, not to start doing yoga. All the best in your yoga practise. 

      Regards Shane.
