Innovation At Its Best: Mighty Yoga Bolsters!

Halfmoon - Innovation At Its Best: Mighty Yoga Bolsters!

The challenge was to make a bolster that performed well in hot studios (as well as everywhere else). We searched high and low to find fabrics that was water resistant, breathable, and easy to clean between uses. And, we did it!

The Details:

  • waterproof breathable interior
  • microfibre cover comes in teal or moth (a classic-looking browny-grey)
  • zipperless cover, giving it a clean, sleek look from all directions
  • available in the cylindrical or rectangular form

Though it was designed for the yoga practitioners who like the heat, (or otherwise glistening yoga types), these bolsters have other great benefits.

These Bolsters Have It All

The real clincher is the new easy-to-remove cover, which benefits all yogis (and studio cleaners!) by making it easier to wash and replace. The innovative new sheath-like cover design has enough material left at the top to make it eminently grabbable — no handle required! This is a distinct improvement on the classic handle design, which puts a lot of strain on the handle seams, causing wear after years of studio use.

The plush, cozy microfibre cover makes the Pro Bolsters more huggable than ever. Think the coziness of fleece crossed with the luxuriousness of suede. I’m addicted to rubbing my face and hands over it. It’s a soft, welcoming surface for your skin…you just can’t stop touching it…you’ve been warned!

Check out the Mighty Rectangular Bolster and the Mighty Cylindrical Bolster today!

Massage Therapy is an easy and feel good modality that helps treat soft tissue trauma in our body. This can be as microscopic as an adhesion in our skeletal muscle tissue that is causing pain, referral pain or a headache, and as obvious as a muscle stuck in contracture that causes what we refer to as a knot that seems to roll under your touch. We put our bodies through a lot, and physical stress like working out or even the physical stress from our jobs (whether it’s sitting all day or moving), as well as mental and emotional stress, can store itself in our bodies as tension.

As our beaches and parks get shut down, the preciousness of nature seems even more important. If anything will keep us sane and healthy right now it is the forests, the trees and the wide-open seas. My hope is that we always take the time to observe the beauty of nature. Even if we are locked inside, we can still look up at the clouds and the stars; and see the immense beauty that we are a part of. We can feel the gift of the green leafy trees in every breath we take.
