Have you ever heard of brick yoga? Well, brick yoga is a popular mechanism to perform various yoga tactics.
If you can't ideally manage to reach the floor in a forward bend, a brick -- flat or on end -- will have you folded in half like an experienced yogi. If age or injury limit your agility, you don't have to give up the joys of spun triangle. Grab a yoga brick and tackle your practice like a professional.
Use brick yoga to perfect your poses that are just outside your reach. This works for recuperation from damage, stiffness from a sedentary life, weak or stiff muscles in any part of your anatomy, or a growth-related loss of stretch due to the forces of gravity.
Brick Yoga mends more than your posture and expands more than your short list of possible poses. Pay attention to how you use the brick and increase agility. Use a brick between your knees in poses like bridge to help engage your thighs. Rest your spread fingers, not your flat palm, on a brick to work the muscles in your hand and arm. Expand your repertory to include poses like butterfly by placing a brick under each knee to ease tight groins and support your form.
Brick Yoga is a comprehensible rehearsal to help you take your yoga practice to the next level.
