I used to hear my teacher say all the time, “Man, people who don’t like to use props in yoga don’t know what they’re missing.” In the minds of many practitioners, props such as chairs, blocks, straps, and bolsters seem to carry an association of feebleness or ineptitude. But if one can temporarily suspend that belief and give oneself permission to to employ them for poses which are typically quite challenging, then new levels of ease and integration can be discovered. Each of our new releases features creative ways of implementing props so that you can feel flat-out great with minimal effort. Backbend Bliss guides you through a supported version of Upward Facing Bow Pose that is the most comfortable and accessible one I’ve ever encountered. Sidebend Blisstransforms lower back pain into lower back relief with the help of a sandbag and strap. Practice these routines in tandem or individually and you will be amazed at how great you feel. Hope you enjoy!
