What equipment do I need for the exercise classes?
The exercise videos use some props. Props are: yoga block, yoga strap, bolster, half dome, squishy ball and something to hold onto like a sturdy chair. Most of these can be found on Amazon and other stores online like yogaaccessories.com or in person stores like Target. They are all easy to substitute with things you have around your house. Here are our sub suggestions:
Yoga Block→ Sturdy book or step stool
Yoga Strap → scarf, belt, sheet [non stretchy material]
Bolster→ A sleeping bag in sack, couch cushion, firm pillows
Half Dome→ rolled up yoga mat
Squishy Ball→ a balled up hand towel
Also, have a sturdy chair nearby for balance.
