Last but not least, the following are of course not necessary to enjoy a good yoga practice but they each bring additional benefits. Candles help to focus the mind and remind us of our inner light. Eye pillows are used during savasana to help us relax, quiet the mind, and shut out natural light. Essential oil is used as aromatherapy (works with our sense of smell to bring healing to the body, mind, and spirit), usually at the end of the practice.
