Yoga props – the Yoga Bolster Black
In addition to the belt and block, our Yoga Bolster Black is also available as a yoga aid. Excellent for Yin Yoga or for backbends, staying longer in a pose or for Savasana.
And even when you are not practising yoga, our Bolster Black can be used. On the one hand, for meditation or for comfortable fletching at home in front of the TV. On the other hand, the Bolster Black is also suitable for at night, when you usually tuck your blanket between your legs or hug something. During pregnancy, the Bolster Black can also prove to be extremely supportive when sitting and lying down.
The filling of the Yoga Bolster Black:
Yoga bolsters are usually filled with spelt husk, buckwheat, cotton or kapok. Kapok is a white-grey – yellowish material. It is made from the fibres of the kapok tree and is water repellent.
Our bolsters are filled with buckwheat. The cotton is organic and so is the buckwheat it contains.
Advantages of buckwheat in the Yoga Bolster Black:
Buckwheat originally comes from Northern India and Central Asia. Buckwheat hulls have a high content of minerals and silicic acid. This is said to alleviate complaints such as joint and back pain. It is also said to relieve menstrual cramps and rheumatism. Buckwheat is also said to promote blood circulation and is therefore particularly beneficial for venous diseases and circulatory disorders.
In contrast to polyester or spelt, buckwheat is firmer, harder and less rustling. It is also more stable in shape and particularly permeable to air. In addition, it is particularly suitable for asthmatics and people who are allergic to house dust. Thus, buckwheat is also safe during pregnancy. Other advantages of buckwheat are that it is breathable, cools in summer and warms in winter. In addition, it protects against excessive sweating. It regulates moisture. It also protects against dust mites. Only in case of gluten allergy we do not recommend a buckwheat filling.
Care of your yoga bolster:
Our bolsters are all filled quite lavishly. Just like our meditation cushions. Both have an inner cushion. You can remove the outer cover and wash it in cold water or at a maximum temperature of 30°C. The inner cushion with the buckwheat filling can be washed at home. Please do not wash the inner cushion with the buckwheat filling. Finally, a small note: If necessary, you can always adjust the filling quantity and thus the hardness of your bolster. It is recommended that you refill your bolster with the buckwheat filling every 2 years or, even better, completely refill it.
