What the Prop?? Informative Workshop

(Rescheduled) November 12th 5:30-7pm

Blocks, straps, bolsters, chairs and more O MY! 
What are we supposed to do with these???
Thanks to Guruji BKS Iyengar, the use of props in yoga works to make practitioners more aware of their body, its flexibility, alignment & improves the overall experience in a yoga practice.
Props are NOT a crutch as many people believe they are an assist and bring you deeper into asanas/poses in a more safe and effective way.
In this practical, insightful, innovative & fun workshop we will explore the use of various props in yoga poses & practice, including looking at some props that are not all that common. Participants will learn to create space, deepen the poses & improve their practice.
This informative workshop is for ANYONE who practices, wants to practice or teaches yoga.
$35 ($25 for one-year class package holders) 
Workshop presented by Nicole Hayman-Sherman ERYT-500, YACEP. CEUS available.
