On Props

Props aren't just to help the beginners, my friends! There are a lot of ways you can use props to get the most out of your yoga sesh. We all need a restorative class now and then, and props, specifically blocks, can lend themselves to a far deeper practice. When used in child's pose, blocks can give you that extra something that'll allow you to relax even more. Here's how: 

Set the foundation

Step 1: Set the foundation. For child's pose props, you'll want to sit back on your shins, and set the blocks up as shown above, like a sort of letter T with a space between.

Take child's pose

Come forward, resting your chest on the vertical block and your forehead on the horizontal block. There should be no effort here- completely melt into the mat and blocks. Adjust the blocks as needed.

Hope you enjoy!
