Welcome Yogis! Thank you for joining me here today as I hope to help you establish your very own home yoga practice, as good as (or even better) than any studio.
The Covid-19 pandemic, while heartbreaking and serious for many families and business' has fortunately provided us with an opportunity. This opportunity is one in which we are forced to stop and evaluate our lives.
Many of you may have already had an established Yoga practice before the pandemic, and if that practice was in studio, there is no doubt that you had to make some changes, and some may have stopped practicing all together. For others, maybe this opportunity has opened you up to new ideas and you are looking to start your yoga practice for the first time.
Regardless of how long you have been practicing, the yoga studio environment is not currently an option for many people.
I'm here to tell you something that some teachers and studios may not want you to know...
You Can Be Your Own Yoga Teacher!
Meaning, you can create a warm and inviting yoga studio experience, and confidently lead yourself through postures, in the comfort of your own space.
In this post, we will talk about the best props and supplies for your home studio, as well as how to use them. Let's get started!
Here is a short video detailing the props I use for my home practice, and below are links to find them and a detailed written description.
1. Yoga Blocks
Yoga blocks are props used mainly to help create space for the practitioner in his/her practice. Blocks can help "lift the floor" for beginner yogis and can help advanced yogis get deeper into poses.
Yoga blocks come in many shapes and brands, but are commonly only found in two widths.
"Skinny Blocks": 2" wide
PROS light weight, great for travel and are less expensive CONS less supportive and stable
"Thick Blocks" 3" wide
PROS stable & supportive
CONS more expensive
