Many of us find a touch of guilty pleasure in owning lots of Yoga Gear and Props! I have several Mats for several occasions and I am always looking for those perfect extras to enhance and my Yogic experience. Props can transform your practice either at home or in a studio.
The Following are those props that are a great asset to any practice:
A Yoga Bolster is so good for those restorative poses like Supported Childs Pose or Supported Belly Down Twist! The bolster can deepen your practice by making you more relaxed in the pose and supporting you so you can hold that restorative pose longer! As you gain strength and flexibility you can use smaller or rectangular bolstersor even remove them. I use the Bolster for Legs Up The Wall Pose as it helps to support my lower back. I get an even comfortable stretch and can hold it longer. Shop the Yama Yoga Store for these wonderful colorful bolsters! A Zabuton is a flat, rectangular cushion that is used to cushion the knees and ankles and provides excellent padding for the upper spine in Shoulderstand or for the Knee in a Lunge. The Zabuton is also a fantastic aid in those restorative and modified yoga asanas. Meditation Cushionshelp to enhance your meditation practice. We may follow Patanjali’s Eight Limbs of Yoga and practice asanas to be able to sit in meditation for long periods, but that doesn't mean we shouldn’t sit on a good supportive cushion to be even more comfortable as we dissolve into meditation. No one wants to focus on a sore bum so, at the Yama Yoga Store, we provide a variety of meditation cushions both round and rectangular that will help you ease into Lotus in comfort and style.
