Prop it Up favorite_border

Hatha - 30m

Teacher: Dianne Bondy

Level: 1

Class type: Full Body

Description:

Yoga props are your friend, especially if you are a beginner or working with shoulder or wrist injuries. In this practice, you will need two blocks, which will help you to access poses with greater ease, and will become like an extension of your arms by bringing the floor closer to you. Blocks are great for steadying balance, offering support when needed, and at times even creating resistance in a pose. Props are your tools to help create a more balanced, accessible practice! Start supported in Child’s Pose, grounding into the breath and gently opening the hips. Move through Sun Salutations and standing poses using blocks for support and length, and also learn how to use the props to modify for wrist or shoulder injuries. Flow into supported shoulder stretches, gentle supine restorative poses, then use props as support in Savasana for a deep surrender. Enjoy feeling supported, connected and rejuvenated!
