Yoga Prop Requirements

The yoga4cancer Method employs copious yoga props. Props support individuals to ensure that practice is safe, effective and accessible. Throughout the program, you will learn more about why yoga props are important and how you can use them.

For the Teaching Practicum, the adequate use of props is a requirement for both you and your practicum participants (more details on the practicum are provided later in the Orientation). Therefore, it is important to identify or source yoga props that you can use early in the training.
