No Props. No Problem.
If you have a yoga mat, blocks, strap, bolster that's great, but if you don't, you probably have a lot of items at home that you can use to support your practice. Here are some ideas:
No blocks? Try using a stack of books, weights, inverted trash can, step stool, chair, or wall
No bolster? Try using folded blankets, towels, bedsheets, pillows, or couch cushions
No Strap? Try using a belt, towel, tie, or scarf
No Mat? Try using anti-skid socks
