Yoga straps and gloves are two essential pieces of equipment for anyone practicing yoga. Elastic yoga straps help to improve flexibility and range of motion by providing resistance when stretching with bands. Stretching stabilization straps, especially straps with loops, help to stabilize the body during isometric exercises. In fact, stretching strap physical therapy is great for rehabilitation. Yoga gloves provide a slip-resistant grip that helps to prevent injuries and they also help to increase hand and forearm strength.
