Want to Enhance Your Yoga Practice?
Published: 10/19/2013

Even the ancient arts – including yoga – are not immune from evolution. While original yogis did not use props such as sticky mats (foam mats with non-skid backing), foam blocks (firm, pillow-like aids to cushion joints and assist in maintaining balance) or D rings (straps with D-shaped metal adjustment rings, used to help achieve or hold difficult poses), some modern practitioners find that props help them to ease into new moves, master more difficult poses or deepen their experience.

From balls to blankets, sandbags to eye bags, the list of props – and what they can do for you – is extensive. Learn more about different yoga props, and how they may benefit your practice.

If you’re a stickler for tradition, you can still benefit from age-old methods of stabilizing your body such as a wall or the assistance of another person to enrich your yoga experience.
