Using the Yoga Block

Yoga Props!  We have all seen them, but do we really know how to incorporate them into our practice?  One of my favorites for increasing balance challenges and strength is the block!  Blocks are fun props because there are many variations and creative options to help you keep your practice fresh. Below are four more easy ways to up your practice with the aid of the yoga block!

  1. Challenge your balancing poses by standing on a block instead of the floor.

  2. Put the block between your thighs to activate your core in your Sun Salutations.

  3. Balance a block on the crown of your head in your Standing Poses and Balancing Poses.

  4. Come into Horse Stance or Goddess Pose and place blocks on your thighs and make sure they don’t fall off.

You shouldn’t look for answers in people who have left you.
There are no revelations there. No guides. No fulfillment’s of any kind.
You’re not going to find a map to paradise in these people.
You’re going to find confusion and a lot more questions, perhaps even more than you can handle.
And I know people change, that is if they want to but why give in?
Why trust who has broken you before?
I mean, people live and sometimes they have the nerve to come back but that doesn’t mean you’ve got to let them back in.
You don’t have to.
You owe it to yourself to be happy.
Besides look at you now, you’re a goddam superstar and in their absence you have found more of yourself and your smile.
You’re stronger and to be honest, you don’t need to spiral around the bulls*** their universe brings.
You don’t need people who have hurt you to convince you of how beautiful you are.
You’re a flower, and you don’t drown the moment the rain starts falling down.
