Often instructors encourage us to grab a block, bolster, blanket, or strap for our yoga practice. Many of us have wondered what to do with them, which ones to use, and when to use them. In this workshop, we will creatively explore how to use props in a playful, safe, practical, and insightful way. Please come with a few postures in mind that you’d like to explore using a prop to assist you.
Bring your own yoga props if you have them (blocks, bolster, blanket and strap). If you don’t have props that’s okay – we will have extras available that you are welcome to use. We also have props available for sale if you’d like to buy some while you’re there for the workshop.
