Cultivate Your Yoga Practice Series


March 9th | 10:00-11:15am

The Cultivating Yoga Practice with Props Series is a great opportunity to immerse yourself into the benefits of using props.  Unfortunately, many of us associate props with weakness or limitations.  Props are not just for accommodating our bodies.  They are necessary for developing self awareness and taking us deeper into our poses.

In this 3rd workshop we’ll be exploring blankets for support, strength & openness.

Cultivating our Practice with Blankets
with Shelly Maxwell

Did you know that there are over 20 different yoga poses where blankets can be utilized?

Blankets have the ability to enhance and warm our practice in various ways. They are particularly beneficial for supporting your knees, hips, and heartspace. Additionally, they can aid in strengthening your core, inner thighs, and abductor muscles, among other benefits.

The use of blankets creates both internal and external warmth, facilitating the release and opening of muscles.

We will explore how blankets can introduce new dimensions of strength, support, and comfort to our practice. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced yogi, this workshop is for you. Just like any prop used in our asana practice, blankets adapt to meet you wherever you are.

Discover the possibilities blankets can offer you!
