How to Use Yoga Bolsters

by Atelier Cocon 29 Mar 2021 0 Comments
Yoga, an ancient practice originating in India, has gained immense popularity worldwide due to its many physical, mental and spiritual benefits. While many practitioners are familiar with mats, blocks and straps, an often overlooked accessory that can greatly enhance your yoga experience is the yoga bolster. This versatile and supportive accessory can transform your practice, offering comfort, stability and a deeper connection to your body and breath. 
  • Paschimottanasana (Seated forward bend

This forward bending pose stretches all the back muscles of the body, from head to toe. The use of this rectangular yoga cushion provides a gentle stretch and helps you hold the pose longer.
  • Savasana

The use of the rectangular yoga cushion in this asana allows a nice opening around the chest and shoulders, as well as a slight backbend.
This variation is ideal if lying on your back causes breathing disturbances.
To relieve pressure on the lower back, bend your knees to the width of the mat.
  • Pranayama Horizontal

When practicing horizontal pranayama, the narrow width and gentle lift of the prana yoga cushion allow the chest to relax and open, increasing lung capacity and chest space.
  • Lotus

 Sitting in lotus position, knee support with the mini yoga bolster helps release tension in your hips and adductors (inner thigh muscles), and allows you to find more ease in the pose.
  • Viparita karani

This inversion position is one of letting go and has a calming effect on the nervous system. It relieves pressure on the lower back and stretches the hamstring muscles. The yoga cylinder cushion here provides a slight backward bend, allowing the chest to open wider for deep breathing.
