Bolsters and blankets for support in positions, for savasana, meditation
Yoga blanket is irreplaceable for the asana savasana - the position of the dead, when we lie on the ground, and makes us feel warm and comfortable. The blanket can provide great support and comfort in other asanas as well - from basic (sitting support) to advanced (upright, headstand). The blanket can be bent and allows the legs to relax and support the lower back or can be used as a knee pad. Its advantage is the adjustment of height and shape.
For yoga styles such as restorative / therapeutic yoga, yin yoga, kundalini yoga, yoga for pregnant women, where asanas are held for a long time, in addition to the above, bolsters are also used. Bolsters are stuffed pillows of rectangular or cylindrical shape that help you completely relax in asanas, help soften the body and allow gradual and safe stretching. Different sizes and weights are available, and they are filled with different materials - cotton, kapuk wool, spelled flakes, buckwheat flakes... Examples of asanas in which we use bolster: Savasana, Balasana, Viparita karani, Supta Baddha Konasana…
How to choose the right yoga bolster?
Bolster in yoga is used as a support in various asanas. Like other yoga accessories (blocks, blanket, straps, wheel...), the bolster helps us to relieve the parts of the body in an asana or when we go into a certain asana.
Bolsters are most commonly used in restorative yoga. They help to support the body, provide comfort, and with their help we achieve better blood circulation.
