Here are some recommendations for each video:
- Videos 1-3:
If you are working on flexibility, I recommend using two blocks (one block under each hand) in Standing Fold and Lunges. For sensitive knees, use a folded blanket or thin cushion between your lower leg and the floor. For wrist tension and carpal tunnel conditions, use a wedge block in Cat Cow and Downward Dog.
- Video 4:
Use one 3" or 4" yoga block to practice the techniques of forward hip alignment. Use a yoga strap or hand towel to practice the technique for aligning front leg.
- Video 5-6:
These videos are Deep Dive Tutorials. On all fours in Cat Cow, you can use a strap above your elbows to develop stability and range-of-motion in the arms and shoulders.
