Here are 6 ways to use a yoga block. There are 5 more over on our Facebook today. . Repost from @ania_75 . . . Tutorial Tuesday Today I wanna show you my favourite ways to use the yoga blocks in my practice: 1. Chair pose 2. Handstand prep 3. Crow pose 4. Chair pose on the wall 5. Bow pose 6. Inverted lake pose
Almost every pose can be aligned with a yoga block. Yoga Blocks can help improve your form and reduce the risk of injury. They can also help you maintain postures for longer, deepen your stretch and explore all arm balances.
Feast your eyes on this lovely backbend sequence using our Prop of the Month - the humble chair. More on backbends in the chair from our friends @yoga_selection on our Facebook page as well. . . . Here are some of the main poses from the upcoming advanced weekly class. The class focusses on backbends. To head in this direction you link some sun salutations with standing poses that share backbend techniques. From there you work with some chair backbends that lead towards urdhva dhanurasana (bridge pose). The class is dynamic and energising. Head to yogaselection.com for more details on Advanced Class 45.
We're all about the Chair this month, and of course we had to share this wonderful post from one of our faves @carrieowerko for #fitfriday . . . I love to offer supported variations of inverted poses using a chair, especially at the end of a long and challenging class. Shoulder stand is a great pose for recovery, and practicing it with the chair gives us the opportunity to relax and expand in an an inverted pose in ways that the un-supported variations might not. We used blocks under the shoulder here, as there were not quite enough blankets in the hall. The blocks offer a firm and precise support. Try a bolster under the shoulders if you prefer a softer surface. . . .#shoulderstand#inversions#chairyoga#yogavariations#ChristaMoser#practiceplay

👏🏆PROP OF THE MONTH: CHAIRS 🏆👏 While you may think it a humble household object, the chair is a fundamental prop in yoga that can support and deepen your practice. Our iYoga chair (and the clip-on Benger backbend extension) has been custom-designed by David Spratt and Peter Harley of iYogaprops.
We love #modificationmonday! And here's a neat series of modifications for Baddha Konasana (Bound Angle Pose) from @iyogaproject . . . HERE’S FOUR, THERE ARE MORE. Just four ways to develop Baddha Konasana with the assistance of the wall and bricks. The placement of the sitting bones is also important for correct alignment. Sit quietly and turn your conscious attention to the weight under the right and left sitting bones. Are they even? Notice if you hit hard into the front inner sitting bones it actually increases tension in the groins. Explore the distribution of weight and where it releases the pelvis. This will also inform other poses, including lateral standing poses. #trysomethingnew#yogaaustralia#yogaspiration#yogaworkshop#yoga#yogapose#iyengaryoga#iyogaproject#yogasydney#yogaprops ( #📷 @iyogaproject )
