Blocks and Straps: Not Just for Yoga Beginners

You may have noticed that I continue to invest in more blocks and straps for our class. Without your support I would not be able to do this – THANK YOU!

Many who practice yoga see the foam blocks and straps used in classes as crutches that they discard once they achieve a measure of proficiency. But those props also can help intermediate and advanced practitioners deepen their stretches, maintain proper alignment and challenge themselves.

The best function of blocks and straps lies in helping people fit a pose to their body like a fine, tailored suit. People often are less flexible on one side of their body than the other, for instance.

If you are interested in more ways to use the blocks and straps reach out to me via email, phone, Facebook, Instagram, or at the next class!
