Generally, mind-body-workouts are relatively
inexpensive. Most of the clothing and gear you
need is stuff you already may have around your
house. To save money, stick to the must-haves
for nearly every mind-body method.
You really want something to cushion your body
and bones from floors (and, if you sweat a lot, to
protect the floor from your perspiration). The kind
of mat you need depends on what you do.
Yoga Mats are commonly called sticky mats
because they’re thin and actually feel like slightly
sticky human flypaper. They make it a lot more
comfortable, and even easier, to do postures
where you use your hands or feet against the
floor. They roll up into small, storable bundles.
Regular exercise mats provide cushioning and
protection. Some come with double or tri-folds,
so they don’t take up a lot of space.

mats, alternating with the type of workout you
Towel: Either to toss over you to stay warm
at the end of a workout, or to fold up to

hamstring stretches done in several
methods if your hamstrings are very tight
and keep you from having the best
alignment. You can also fold it and lay it
across your eyes to knock out distractions
if you want to relax.
Water bottle: You may be moving slowly in
some cases, but you’re probably still
perspiring. Stay hydrated by drinking 1 to 3
cups of water an hour. Remember, as soon
as you feel thirsty, you are already
CD or cassette player: You may likely want
to listen to workout-appropriate music. It
keeps you motivated and entertained, and
may help you become more meditative or
mindful, depending on the music.
Strap, belt, or long towel: Many mind-body
methods involve some kind of stretching. If
you aren’t very flexible, having a strap,
belt, or towel to help you reach a foot,
ankle, or other body part can help you
experience the stretch and work on your
flexibility in that position.
