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.

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: […]
