equip - Yoga ROM Props 'Blocks, Wedges, Pads'

How using Yoga Blocks can assist better ROM practice

Blocks prop up for more comfortable help to reach lacking alignment with less injury risk.  These Blocks come with variations (Wedges, Pads/Shoulder Pads, Drums, Slant Boards) and Sizes including half and ¾, the bigger the yoga block, the bigger the support. Blocks, Wedges and Pads are props born from the Iyengar tradition of yoga teaching that having the proper alignment is the most important thing. Until the body becomes open enough, props can be used to bring the body into alignment in order to achieve maximum benefit and avoid injury. That being said blocks can be used in advanced practice to further develop ability’s with less risk and or are handy in relaxation, so forth. From the Chapter ‘Yoga ROM Props’ (Link)
