Props are amazing tools that support us in exploring the comfort areas of yoga poses. The best part of doing yoga at home is that you can get very creative with your props! Below you will find a list of common props we use in class, and alternatives with some common household items.
-Blocks: Blocks are very handy to help us touch the floor, or to provide support to our bodies. For example, you may want to put a block under your thighs for support if, when seated cross-legged, your thighs don’t touch the floor.
*A stack of books, or firm pillow are a great alternatives if you don’t own a block.
-Straps: Straps are wonderful tools to help you connect your body parts. Maybe it doesn’t feel good to grab your foot with your hand…you can put a strap around your foot to help find that movement that feels just right for you.
*A belt, necktie, or rolled up towel work as great replacements for straps!
-Bolster/Cushion: Sitting on a bolster or cushion is a fantastic way to elevate your hips and take some pressure off your inner thighs when seated. You may also fall in love with doing savasana (final relaxation pose) with
