perfect peace props

In yoga, props are often used to help students safely and/or more deeply access a pose otherwise unavailable to them. The most common props are blocks, blankets, straps and bolsters.

Other props may include the wall, sandbags, eye pillows, tennis balls and variations on these themes. At their essence, props are supporting elements for a practice. Below you will find some of my favorite supporting elements and resources for a yoga and wellness lifestyle.
