Yoga straps and belts are useful for yogis of all levels. One reason people stay away from starting yoga is they believe they are not flexible enough. What they don't realize is that yoga is not about flexibility, but about strengthening the body to join with the mind and spirit. Yoga straps help achieve this goal by making a pose attainable from the onset until flexibility is achieved. Belts provide length, enabling you to grasp limbs that are otherwise too far away.
