Yoga bolsters are dense pillows of varying sizes used to support various parts of the body in different styles of Yoga. Bolsters are used in variations of Savasana. A corpse pose a meditative and restorative Savasana commonly practiced at the end of a yoga routine by placing a bolster under the knees or upper back.
Stick a bolster under the lower back for a supportive back bend, or lengthwise along the mid to upper back, neck and head to open the heart chakra. Yoga bolsters, like other yoga props, help take the strain off your body as you ease from pose to pose.
Yoga bolsters fill a variety of needs, they can take the place of blocks for a softer form of support or as a Zafu to give you that extra pelvic lift during meditation. We recommend the Pranayama bolster during pranayama breathing exercises to fully open the chest. The round bolster will become your best friend in Restorative yoga, but the Rectangular has become the new round as it is a more versatile bolster during many poses.
Using a round bolster in a supported back bend allows the user to open the front of their bodies and stretch, this allows your body to realign after a long day at work with simple, rejuvenating stretches that will have most positive impact on your body.
Yoga bolsters or pillows come in all shapes and sizes and are very simple to choose depending on the style yoga or meditation you perform, but if you are not sure of the bolster you need, consult your yoga or meditation teacher or instructor before placing your order.
