In the spirit of keeping yoga accessible and affordable, I've compiled a list of yoga props and common household items that can be used in place of more expensive equipment. Feel free to comment with any additional ideas!
Bolster: pillow, rolled-up yoga mat
Block: shoe box taped closed, phone books/stack of books
Strap: a tie, belt, or scarf
Blanket: bed coverings, towels
Sandbag: bag of nuts/seeds
Eyepillow: small bag of uncooked rice or whole flaxseed
