The History of the Legendary Halfmoon Bolster

Halfmoon - The History of the Legendary Halfmoon Bolster

In the 1980’s as the Vancouver yoga industry grew, the demand for yoga props grew with it. Halfmoon’s founder Beth McTavish began to branch out from making yoga mats & straps and began developing a line of bolsters using the knowledge she had gained from working at a futon shop several years earlier.

The first Cylindrical bolster was simply made with cotton batting within a zippered cotton casing. Over time, feedback from clients, teachers & students alike, has resulted in enhancements and additions to the bolster line.

Yoga practices continued to diversify which led to the development of the rectangularand pranaand mini bolster series. Over the years we have created new bolster styles, shapes and sizes for every need, and we can boast that we have one of the most diverse collections of bolsters available!

The construction of the bolster has evolved to ensure that your bolster will stand the test of time. We’re proud to say that our bolsters are used by the best studios and teachers for hours of classes daily. Year after year these bolsters are used, and still provide the perfect support for their classes.

Today Halfmoon’s bolsters have a removable, washable cover that is great not only for hygienic reasons, but they also allow you to dress your bolster in the season’s most fashionable styles! We’re talking about bolsters that don’t need to be tucked away in the closet when friends come over. Our fabrics range from our durable Classic Line in a wide range of beautiful colours to our Limited Edition fabrics that will look fabulous with your home decor.

Whatever your style of practice or lifestyle, we are sure that we have the bolster to support you. Proudly made in Vancouver, Canada our bolsters are our claim to fame. We are sure that we can help you find your perfect bolster!
