Props and Materials
1. Lesson Materials & Accessories
Students should use a yoga mat. Feel free to use props including a yoga block, straps, and/or blankets. Keep them close so they are available if/when you need them. Be mindful of where they are in your space so they do not become a tripping hazard.
Stay hydrated! If you are thirsty, have a drink of water, however, please keep in mind that you should be well hydrated before you begin your physical practice.
The practice of yoga is just that -- a practice! Done regularly the physical practice will create results. However, the complete practice of yoga occurs both on and off the mat. Enjoy the journey.
