Yoga & Pilates

Some Yoga styles - Iyengar, for example - make extensive use of Yoga props. But even the most basic Hatha Yoga practice can benefit from the use of at least a strap and some blocks. But if you want to explore and add a new dimension to your Yoga practice, there are many Yoga props that can help you deepen your poses, or even learn postures that you never thought you could accomplish! See below to find out what Yoga props can do for you.

These ergonomic blocks are made to be gripped in the center during weight bearing exercises to get a load off your wrist joints.
