Our ‘Take a Breather’ Yoga Bolster has been beautifully made of completely natural materials. The removable outer layer is a blend of jute and organic cotton. The organic cotton inner is filled with 100% organic buckwheat hulls. It is durable, sustainable and thoughtfully designed, with a handy carry handle and a hidden zip.
The buckwheat hull inner is malleable and non-shifting, allowing the bolster to contour to your body throughout your practice. Buckwheat is a seed-like grain native to Asia. The seed grows within a shell-like casing, which is removed then cleaned and used as a long-lasting, durable filling. Buckwheat hulls are also hypoallergenic, making them ideal for use in cushions and yoga props.
Some of the ways you can use our bolster to support yourself:
Yoga: Our Bolster is the perfect prop for many different yoga postures. Open your chest and let your shoulders drop back by placing the bolster under your spine then lying back over it. Hug your bolster beneath you in Childs Pose.
Anxiety: If you are feeling anxious, bring your legs right up against a wall and place the bolster under your hips to elevate them. Stay here for a few minutes, focussing on slow, steady breathing.
Sleep & Grounding Yourself: Lie down and place the bolster over your hips, this grounding weight helps you to feel safe and calm. Use the bolster under your knees to support your lower back when lying flat or when in savasana.
