Self-massage therapy balls and props (blocks, blankets, bolsters, etc) are to restorative yoga as hot fudge is to ice cream sundaes. Of course, vanilla ice cream is a treat on its own, but add hot fudge and [insert the sound of your mind being blown]. 
Yoga Tune Up's self-massage trigger point therapy balls penetrate through layers of skin and muscle to massage deeply into your high tension areas and prepare the body for restoration. Props help your body feel supported, thereby encouraging your muscles to relax even more (check out the sweet variations for Legs-Up-the-Wall). 
If you're in the market to score some restorative hardware, the following are RYC-tested and approved!
