Using props to get into the flow

Moving from pose to pose can be a challenge. For example, transitioning within the Japanese style sitting poses, props are often necessary, and in moving from one pose to the next, you may feel unsteady as you navigate a new bodypostion and rearrange the props under and around you legs. Until these poses feel more natural and steady, it can be helpful to have two chairs on either side of you.


Using the chairs for support, you can practice transitioning from one pose to the next, and rearranging pillows and props, with more stability – gradually you can experiment with using the chairs less as you become more stable in the flow of the poses.
