*A bolster: A bolster is a piece of Yoga equipment. It is a supportive item that is very useful for seated and restorative postures and for supporting joints whilst in stretches. It is often used as a seat for meditation. If you have a pre-existing or current injury, you will need a bolster for the modification of some Yoga postures and stretches. “Yogamatters” have an excellent range to choose from.

*A blanket: The blanket is for maintaining a comfortable body temperature whilst in meditation or relaxation and can also serve as a useful prop whilst in stretches. It needs to be big enough to cover the surface of your mat.
