Whats a Yoga Bolster?

What’s a Yoga Bolster?

If you are new to yoga, even if aren’t but you’ve predominately practiced a power Vinyasa style yoga you might not know what a yoga Bolster is.  A yoga bolster is like a body pillow but firmer and either rectangular or circular in shape. Ours are circle because we like circles best. Its main purpose is to create relaxation, help soften a posture, or aid in opening the body. A bolster is commonly used in prenatal, restorative, and Iyengar based classes. But they can be used also in other yoga classes and around the home or office. I often use mine on the sofa under my legs or behind my neck.

Yoga bolsters are a great support to any yoga practice – I often use mine at the start or at the end of my practice to begin to open or to unwind and slow down.

They are perfect supports for the neck, knees, arms, backs anywhere in the body that you are wanting to soften and also open and add extra cushioning too.

I like lying it down over my belly too acting as an added weight to lower the chest and belly to enhance deep breathing and relaxation.

There are loads of bolsters out there so why choose ours?
