Consider a yoga sandbag if you want a multipurpose yoga accessory. Placing a yoga sandbag on your thigh helps you deepen standing poses such as Warrior 1 by encouraging your thigh to drop closer to the floor. Or you can use a pair of sandbags, one on each thigh, to help open your hips when sitting in bound angle pose. You can even sit on the sandbag for a extra lift when doing seated poses such as forward bends, as an alternative to sitting on a folded blanket, a block, or a wedge. You can by sandbags from makers of yoga supplies and props such as Gaiam, or from stores and websites such as yoga.com that sell yoga supplies.
