5 Feel Good, Do Good Yoga Accessories (That Won’t Break the Bank)

When it comes to yoga accessories, the market is saturated with variants. Do you chose the $10 mat with the cool design, or the $100 mat with fifty different certifications? Which accessories do you really need for your practice? When is it worth investing more?

As a frugal-minded person myself, it can be difficult to dish out a lot of cash on something I’m just going to be setting my feet on. Nevertheless, I have found that there are economical options out there for responsible, high quality products.

The following list was put together after examining accessories for the following features: eco-friendly, non-toxic, high user rating and charitable outcomes. Without compromising on quality, I also took into consideration cost.
