Ahhh yes! We love our yoga props!
Especially our favorite yoga strap, right!
Well, the truth is that many of us have a love/hate relationship with using yoga props of any kind. Many stubborn students view props as a crutch and even a sign of weakness. Of course, this is a terrible way to view yoga props. Props can be a wonderful aid to any practice and help to teach life-long good habits and alignment on your mat.
The trusty yoga strap certainly has its place among the list of props every yogi should have on the shelf. Like most yoga props, straps aren't exactly sexy on the mat, and you may not feel super cool while using it, but it doesn't matter!
A good reliable yoga strap can teach you some important lessons, especially beginners! So, before you toss that strap aside, take the time to see how it might just do wonders for your practice!
