The Amazing Dowel

The wonderful and slender dowel, also known as a “stick,” can create a strong sense of alignment, develop range of motion, give you greater access to poses, offer support, challenge your strength, enliven your practice by becoming an extension of the limbs, aid balance, create space in the joints, and offer leverage. Come explore this light, versatile tool, which you can easily add to your daily practice.
Alison has been a pioneer in expanding the use of the dowel, starting Dowel trainings many years ago at her studio Yoga Union in New York City. Yoga Journal published their first article on the dowel by Alison in 2018.
