“Props help to perform the asanas with ease. The student understands and learns asana faster on props as the brain remains passive. Through passive brain one learns to be alert in body and mind. Props are guides to self learning. They help accurately without mistakes.” – B.K.S. Iyengar
Props allow us to unfold the space of an asana and acquaint us with some poses that otherwise be too difficult to practice; they serve as a means to achieve alignment, stability, precision and prolonged stay in postures. They bring awareness and the chance to stay longer creating a deeper sense of bodily regions.
During the workshop we will be moving through a series of standing postures exploring the use of the wall, blocks, straps, bolsters, blankets and chairs to enhance the experience of each posture in the body and self.
We will work in achieving and maintaining correct alignment during the practice as well as relax in challenging asanas to attain their full benefit.
This offering is open to all levels of practitioners including ones with back injuries as the practice is aimed to make space, elongate and find ease in places that may be constricted in our bodies.
