The prop of Yoga Bou will be used to facilitate movement and detailed instructions will be given. Sun Salutations will be introduced as well as all basic poses. Yoga Bou is a prop designed to help release muscular tensions in the body. Utilizing leverage, the bou (stick or rod in Japanese) creates greater power on one side as you push another side away from its center. As it works on smaller masses of muscles and those in deeper layers, it draws out joint mobility naturally available in your body. By awakening the deeper muscles, the bou will help realign your body axis, the basis of good posture, and release tension around shoulders and hip joints. It is also an effective tool to teach oneself correct alignments of yoga poses.
