This vinyasa practice makes use of two blocks in some familiar and unexpected ways. We flow through Sun Salutations, standing pose flows, some core and arm balance work, backbends, and hip openers. Along the way we will use the blocks to increase our proprioception, stability, and engagement. Enhance the functionality of your practice and experience some new feedback and awareness in the poses you know and love.
