• Discover how to use and incorporate several types props into your practice: blankets, blocks, straps, bolsters, wedges, sandbags and wraps.
Props allow all practitioners access to the benefits of the postures regardless of physical condition, age, or length of study. The central purpose for using yoga props is to address a need for support. A “prop” is just that. It is supportive and helpful when facing obstacles on the mat because it helps to meet us where we are. Props help practitioners at all levels gain the sensitivity of a pose while receiving the benefits over time without overextending themselves. By using props, we teach ourselves to surrender to the support beneath us and let go of the need to control within. The mind becomes free of agitation and the student practices with greater effectiveness, ease, and stability.
