Pick-up a block... or two.
It is while practicing yoga asanas that you learn the art of adjustment.
When do I use a Yoga block?
First of all… I pick-up a block or two before the start of every class and sit them next to my mat. That's just protocol with me. I've always felt that the use of a block or any other prop only enhances your asana practice. The use of props have nothing to do with how much experience you have, nor does it minimize your asana practice. On the contrary, it shows mindfulness and a willingness to cultivate awareness.
For newer students, a block or two can make what appears a daunting pose an accessible one. It provides comfort, enhances alignment and support, while giving you a sense of adaptability in your own life.
Some poses I love using blocks in:
What are some other ways you use a yoga block?

Until then, see you on the mat.
If I'm doing it, I'll be talking about it. Yoga chatter & more.
