B. K. S. Iyengar introduced props into the modern practice of yoga to allow all practitioners access to the benefits of the postures regardless of physical condition, age, or length of study. The central purpose for using yoga props is to address a need for support. A “prop” is just that. It is supportive and helpful when facing obstacles on the mat because it helps to meet us where we are.
The most commonly used props in Iyengar yoga practice — blankets, bolsters, blocks and straps (or belts) — are readily available for sale in many on-line websites.
Pura Vida Yoga Props are custom-made by our master craftsman using solid poplar, douglas fir, yellow pine and maple. Send inquiries to Roger at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit his Etsy store.
