Do It Yourself Yoga Props

Props can be an invaluable part of any yoga practice – from the beginner to the advanced practitioner. They can help make challenging poses more accessible, modify certain poses to support injuries, improve balance, flexibility, and range of motion. Using props can help your practice progress, as they allow you to stay longer in some poses, encouraging a deeper opening; they can help improve the quality of your practice in easing you into proper alignment and keeping you there. However, due to the nature of our mobile, come-to-you approach to yoga, we are not able to provide props to our corporate yoga clients. There are a number of ways you can make your own yoga props out of things you already have in your office or at home to support your yoga practice. Try these tips: […]

Yoga for weight loss?

No matter how many times people ask me if they can lose weight doing yoga, the answer never gets easier. Yes it is a form of physical activity, but certainly not the vigorous cardiovascular training that we would associate with weight loss.

The beauty of the backbend

The spine is often referred to in yoga as “the tree of life”, so naturally it is important to keep it supple and happy. It provides the main structural support for our entire body, houses a main component of our nervous system (the spinal cord), and energetically, contains the major centers of non-sensory input from […]
