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

A few things to keep in mind if you’re practicing on a carpeted surface (or a thick (squishy) mat)

  1. It will challenge your balance! Any cushioned surface will make balance poses a little more difficult.

  2. It can be tough or your wrists! Any posture where you're bearing weight on your handsyour wrists sinking below the level of your hands. Try going down to elbows, making fists, or even using a pair of weights
