Yoga blocks and their superpowers

The bricks are used to “raise the floor”, bring it closer to the student and thereby facilitate the presence in the asana.

About water

Last weekend, your humble servant attended the first part of the training “Functional Anatomy of Prana. The Power of Hatha Kriya Yoga.” The teacher from Canada Laurier Pierre Desjardins is a doctor, an osteopath, a thirty-year-old yogi. Inimitable storyteller and a very bright person.
