Loving this current free subscription to Yogaglo, on cold days, being a bit off the beaten path to get to a yoga class it’s sometimes crucial for my sanity to stay in and get a practice going. So far so good! I’ve always been a fan of blocks integrated into yoga practice, be it for chest opening in pranayama or using it as a balancing prop in standing poses… hadn’t thought of this one before and this class led by Dice Iida-Klein…(I may seem dyslexic but had to Google him and still am not sure if it’s LIDA or IIDA!!!)
So in this one hour practice on Yoga Glow, the instructor introduced two blocks to support you during handstand practice. I likened it to trying SUP Yoga (Stand up paddle board yoga) which I had the chance to try in Michigan last summer. The foam in the blocks is dense but slightly porous and you need to stabilize at your core to meet the give and take balancing on foam blocks requires.
