A yoga futon is a traditional Japanese yoga mat which is generally thicker and softer than Western yoga carpets. Our futons are padded with kapok to provide support and cushioning to your muscles and joints.
The yoga futon is often used in sweet yoga styles as well as in meditation practices. It is particularly useful for postures that require significant pressure on knees, elbows or hips, because it offers a softer and more comfortable surface than thinner yoga carpets. The yoga futon can also be used as a floor mat for other activities such as nap, relaxation or reading.
If you too like to start your day by stretching gently, wake up and feel your body to pass gently from the bed to an active day, the futon is for you!
Thicker and thicker than a conventional yoga carpet, our futon is made from a breathable linen fabric and is padded with kapok for the happiness of your muscles and your joints.
Flow in the morning, pranayama, meditation or nidra yoga, the futon offers you a wide surface and dense support for the whole body and promotes good blood circulation. Versatile, you can also roll part of the futon during meditation to lift your pool or the neck.
If you are a soft yoga enthusiast like yin yoga or yoga restaurant, practicing on a soft surface will be more pleasant to maintain postures for a long time. Indeed, maintaining any Asana even the Shavasana for more than 5 min can cause numbness to see tingling.
In short, the choice of a futon for the practice of yoga depends on the individual preferences and needs of each practitioner. However, for those looking for a comfortable, breathable and thick surface for their yoga practice, a futon can be an excellent choice.
