When you start to attend a yoga class – it would be good (but optional) to get a Yoga bag for you to carry your necessary yoga equipment and accessories to the class.
A good yoga bag has straps or compartments where you can keep your rolled-up yoga mat, together with space to put stuff like your exercise clothing, toiletries (to shower after the class) and other accessories like the foam blocks or rolls which you use during class.
Depending on your preference, you may want to get a simple yoga mat bag just to store the mat and carry your other stuff separately in your own bag, or get a larger bag like a yoga tote bag or yoga backpack where you can squeeze everything in and make it less cumbersome to handle. In any case, remember that this is an optional item, and you should always buy a good mat first, because some yoga mats come together with a pretty carry bag!
Like other sports bags – these specialized bags for yoga sport different prices, depending on the brand, design size and even where you purchase the bag from. Cheaper ones can go for anything less than S$25, while the higher end and more branded ones can go up to over S$100.
