The inspiration we find here on Instagram can be a wonderful influence on our own practice, to help us try new things and challenge our bodies, but where do you start to work towards some of the more challenging postures? Join us for #JuneBloomYogis where we will be sharing the poses which have helped us on our journeys to help you bloom in yours!
For each day, a host will share a pose which is a perfect place to start to work towards or warm up for the pose of the day. Participants are welcome to show either the prep pose or the full posture, honouring the level of their practice. ⠀

Last day of the #namastayforeveryoung challenge is a supine/reclined pose and I went with a forward fold. I used my @infinitystrap to warm up for the pose. I have no idea what this pose is called🤔 Thanks to the hosts and sponsors for the fun challenge!🤩💓hosts:
I was losing flexibility in my already non-flexible leg and pulled my hamstring so I've been babying this leg for a while. I was hesitant to try the yoga strap since I have always been so flexible and figured I didn't need it, wrong. I already love it! Can't wait for my blocks and wheel to get here 😁❤
The use of yoga props goes way back in the history of yoga! Straps, blocks, bolsters, blankets, and other props can help yoga practitioners find stability and ease in poses. Sometimes props are also used to make a pose more challenging!
We've got oodles of props at #SunbeamsYoga and love to use them! If you're practicing at home, you can get creative by using a necktie, scarf, or bathrobe belt in place of a strap; heavy books in place of blocks; thick pillows or couch cushions as a bolster. Chairs are a great prop too! What other tools have you used in your practice?
New article for the @theluminescent.yoga on the ancient history of the yoga strap, or yogapaṭṭa, as it was known in Sanskrit. Turns out, yogis have been "strapping" themselves into postures for over 2,000 years! "...although the use of a yoga strap in postural yoga is typically credited as an “invention” of BKS Iyengar in the 1960s, the notion of a cloth strap used to support one’s physical yogic practice turns out to be just about as old as the discipline of yoga itself." https://theluminescent.blogspot.com/2018/06/the-ancient-yoga-strap-yogapatta.html
Not my strongest point right now 😖
A couple of weeks ago I had bursitis in my hip so bad I could barely walk on my right leg... since then my hips and lower back have been super tight. Using a yoga strap has helped me get in a decent stretch over the last few weeks while things get back to normal, so please don’t judge my form or lack of flexibility right now 😆
Honestly though, yoga straps are for all levels of fitness and flexibility and are probably a great investment for anyone to own.
Also, don’t mind the random children in the frame. They’re driving me nuts today 😬😂
