We’re almost a week into 2017, which means it’s time to start cashing in on that fleeting New Year’s resolution you made seconds before the stroke of midnight. And when it comes to getting fit and staying healthy, nothing seems to fit the bill quite like yoga. If you’re a total newb to the cult practice, we can all admit that arming yourself with the right set of gear helps get the ball rolling (the better you look, the better you feel, amirite?).
With that in mind, we asked instructor to the stars Hilaria Baldwin, who recently partnered with eBay for Charity on an online auction to support Bent on Learning, a non-profit dedicated to bringing yoga to New York City public schools, what’s in her starter pack. “Yoga can be very humble, but sometimes, you want to put on your fantastic stretch pants and have your amazing mat and water bottle,” she recently said by phone.
Here, the seasoned pro rounds up her seven must-haves. If you’re in N.Y.C., stop by Baldwin’s class on Jan. 11 at 6:30 p.m. ET at Yoga Vida. All proceeds raised will benefit Bent on Learning.
