If you have followed my Instagram account for a while, then you probably already know that I love props. Yoga blocks, blankets, tennis balls, you name it.
I love the way props can enhance your practice by adding load, resistance, or tactile feedback for your body. If you still think that blocks are just a way to help the inflexible ones in class, think again.
Here's a video whereby standing on a block I add not just an extra challenge to my balance, but I work with my standing leg's outer thing and glute (lots of hip stability), and I add load, which helps with knee and ankle strength.
Play with the postures!
I loved the extra challenge of doing Halfmoon pose I added a bit of knee flexion which turned on the leg.
The possibilities are many; remember that playing is everything!
