Ananday Natural Canvas Bag ($68)
Tired of juggling your way into class? This duffel accommodates mats up to 24 inches wide and has plenty of room for props, clothes, and a water bottle. The external pocket organizes your phone, wallet, and keys, so you can focus on the oms.
Icebreaker Men’s Motion Seamless SS Crewe Shirt ($95)
Those who tend to get drenched during midsummer vinyasa will appreciate the Motion Seamless SS Crewe, which blends merino, Tencel, and nylon into a durable knit that moves moisture at warp speed without smelling funky.
Halfmoon Rectangular Bolster ($75 and up)
Elevate your practice with Halfmoon’s bolster. Firm stuffing gives support to legs up the wall, reclined back bend, and child’s pose, while replaceable covers in limited-edition prints ($26) and fabrics like linen make it stand out.
S’well Roamer Water Bottle ($75)
Hydration is the foundation of health. This sleek jug holds 64 ounces. Vacuum insulation keeps contents cool in even the sultriest sessions.
Roxie Rudolph Leggings ($79)
Long-waisted yogis, rejoice. These leggings won’t roll down, and the polyester-spandex fabric wicks sweat and will keep you warm when the mercury drops. The best part: there are dozens of fun prints to choose from.
Prana Momento Crop Top ($59)
We love the Momento’s balance of coverage, support, and mobility. We wore it through a morning class, hiking, hot springs, and après beers without experiencing digging, thanks to the long cut and seam-free bottom edge.
Manduka Pro Travel Mat ($68)
The standard-issue Manduka Pro is our go-to, but it’s a beast to transport. The Pro Travel weighs just under 2.5 pounds and provides 2.5 millimeters of cushy, grippy foam—enough to keep you stable on grass, decking, and office carpet.
Patagonia Men’s Nine Trails Shorts ($65)
Some shorts are too short and ride up; others are too long and bind during warrior pose. The stretch-woven Nine Trails gets it right, with an eight-inch inseam and a breathable boxer-brief liner treated with silver ions to help keep odor at bay.
