Infinite uses for the Infinity Strap
Whether you practice at home or in a studio there is only so much we can try to do to make sure that we are practicing correctly – especially if we don’t have a wall to wall mirror. Even when we think we’re perfectly aligned, we could still sometimes use a little bit of correction. Or how about stability? A block sometimes isn’t the best way to enhance stability when your arms are up in the air, although we do recognize that this does work for some students. Or sometimes we lose our focus during practice or focus on one thing and miss out on another part of our practice. Take the simple asana Downward Facing Dog. Many of us are more worried about where our feet are positioned or whether our legs are stretching than thinking about where our hands are placed.
