FAQ

What is a yoga bolster?

A yoga bolster is a supportive cushion designed to assist in yoga practice by providing comfort and stability. It conforms to the natural curves of the body, offering tailored support for various poses. It is typically filled with firm materials like buckwheat hulls or foam, and covered with a durable fabric. This shape makes it ideal for targeting specific areas, such as the lower back, neck, and knees, enhancing overall alignment and relaxation during practice.

What are the benefits of using a yoga bolster in yoga practice?

  • Enhanced support:
    • The unique shape of the half moon bolster provides focused support, particularly beneficial for the lower back, neck, and under the knees.
  • Improved alignment:
    • Helps maintain proper alignment in poses, reducing strain on muscles and joints, and promoting a safer practice.
  • Increased comfort:
    • Offers extra cushioning, making it easier to hold poses for longer periods without discomfort, which is especially helpful in restorative yoga.
  • Deeper relaxation:
    • Encourages a deeper state of relaxation and stress relief by allowing the body to fully rest and release tension.
  • Versatility:
    • Can be used in a variety of poses, from seated and supine to prone and kneeling positions, enhancing the versatility of your practice.
  • Enhanced flexibility:
    • Assists in gently opening the body and improving flexibility, making challenging poses more accessible.

 

How to Use a Yoga Bolster?

  • Supporting the lower back:
    • Place the bolster horizontally behind you while seated, aligning it with your lower back. Lean back gently to allow the bolster to support your spine, aiding in proper posture.
  • Under the knees in savasana:
    • Lay the bolster under your knees while lying on your back in Savasana (corpse pose). This reduces strain on the lower back and helps the legs relax.
  • Chest opener:
    • Place the bolster lengthwise along your spine while lying on your back, with your head resting on one end. Let your arms fall open to the sides to gently open your chest and shoulders.
  • Child’s pose support:
    • In Child’s Pose (Balasana), place the bolster lengthwise between your knees and fold forward, resting your torso and head on the bolster for additional support and comfort.
  • Hip opener in pigeon pose:
    • In Pigeon Pose (Eka Pada Rajakapotasana), place the half moon yoga bolster under the hip of the front leg for support, ensuring your hips remain level and reducing strain.
  • Seated forward fold:
    • Sit with your legs extended in front of you. Place the half moon Yoga bolster on your thighs and fold forward, resting your torso and head on the bolster to support your forward bend.
  • Reclining bound angle pose:
    • Sit with your feet together and knees falling open to the sides. Place the bolster vertically along your spine, and lean back to rest on it, allowing your knees to relax towards the floor.
