I’ve been practicing yoga for a couple years and have never used blocks or straps. Should I?

Since asanas (yoga poses) are not “one-size fits all”, props enable yogis to find ease and true alignment in poses without overstraining the body.  Even for poses you can move into without props, you’ll find using them will give your body a different “feel”/sensation.  A great resource for checking out and buying props is www.huggermugger.com

To answer your question, yes experiment using props.  See how poses you normally move into without props feel differently with props.   Your yoga practice should be approached with an open mind so be willing to explore with and without props.  Be playful, and always have fun.  Namaste.
