The use of props is encouraged as it will lead the body to open in new ways, while minimizing the risk of injury. The awareness of the body is cultivated through the exercise and the experience and it happens naturally, as we start to hear it. “It is through the alignment of the body that I discovered the alignment of my mind” B.K.S Iyengar.
