Leverage can make a huge difference when practicing yoga postures. The ropes wall and yoga chairs & wheels provide a great source of leverage.

Lessen the learning curve with these great props – both tools will help you to get a grasp on what you should be doing in a yoga posture versus what you think you should be doing.

All of these tools help to address tension and muscular restriction in the back, chest, shoulders, abdomen, groins and hip flexors as well as a great way to develop core stability and spinal traction.
