Anyway, my practice (and it is, for the record 100% home practice) does not look like it's supposed to look in the newfangled scheme of things in the big city. It is not very sweaty. It uses these funny egg-shaped blocks ... I've only had them for 3 months ... and I use it for a lot of poses now ... their rocking-sides shape is a wrist easer/flex-massager ... and, now that I've the mp3 from the digital voice recorder dominating the scene--my own voice calling out my moves (so I don't have to think) --there IS no music ... so the pace is natural (I am movement-centric, not breath-centric ... and I'm SLOWER than the beats of the music) ...

Three-Minute Eggs ... only get the Blue Ones ... those are made for putting the entire body weight dynamically on them. But very light weight people can get away with using the other kind I have.

I have the Green Three-Minute Eggs.(a.k.a. Namasteggs). Do not get the Namasteggs, unless non-full-bodyweight bearing on your wrists is the vast bulk of your practice. They are made more for alignment and ergonomic balance-training of your hand stances in poses such as forward bend and any of the triangle-emanate poses such as half moon, side angle, or triangle itself (or the revolved variations thereof) ....

And of course, I can fit my sitz bones atop the flat side ...

I purchased them from a studio which shall remain Nameless ...

I've had a wrist/thumb injury since last August. It has healed a lot. I have been able to continue my yoga practice by using Gripitz yoga blocks. They look like this: bestyogaequipment.blogspot.com/2012/01/gri
pitz-yoga-and-exercise-blocks.html
I like them so much. I was even doing Bakasana with them yesterday! They have a pair of them at the studio where I practice. Unfortunately, the company which made them has gone out of business. Anyone have any ideas where I might find a pair? Is there anything else that might do the same thing? Are there any entrepreneurs reading this that might want to make something like them? Several teachers with whom I have spoken agree that they are one of the most useful yoga tools. Now unavailable. Alas.
