Yoga props for your home practice

Many of us have been improvising props at home. This can work perfectly well for home practice and livestream classes and Mr Iyengar himself was known for his innovation in repurposing household items to create new props. But, if you would like to upgrade from books, towels and cushions we can recommend the selection of equipment below.

We have chosen props that are similar to the ones we use at Maida Vale so that they will be familiar and easy to work with if you have attended classes at our studios.




Foam Brick

At Maida Vale we use wooden, foam and cork bricks. Foam is a good option for your home practice as it is lighter and less expensive than wood.

Cork Brick

Cork bricks are slightly heavier than foam so some students find them a slightly more stable to work with.

Natural Cotton Blanket

New blankets can shed rather a lot of fluff. Our top tip is to wash your blanket before use to minimise shedding!

Tall Chair

Bolster

New bolsters can be a bit big and puffy. Over time they settle, soften and become more comfortable to use.
