In some varieties of yoga we need more than just a yoga mat to practice holistically. Lotus Design has everything the yogi heart could desire ... from the yoga mat, to the yoga towel and the yoga chair.
There are various accessories in the world of yoga which can make your practice easier and more pleasant. For example, the yoga blocks can help you to access some challenging asanas. You can use yoga belts to deepen stretches gently and improve your posture.
Then there are, for example, yoga bolsters, which can be used in many different ways, but are mainly used in yin and restorative yoga, to create gentle stretches and make the respective asanas even more comfortable. However, bolsters also look great in the sitting area at home. Yoga cushions are especially suitable for meditation, but can of course also be used at home in the living room as a seat cushion. In contrast to classical meditation cushions, yoga cushions are usually crescent-shaped.
From classic yoga accessories to the latest yoga trends such as the Yoga Wheel or the shoulder-stand stool: with us you will find the exact yoga accessories you are looking for. The Yoga Wheel makes it easier for you to bend backwards and is fun to use for beginners and advanced yogis. With the head-stand stool you can practice reverse postures without much risk, because shoulders, neck and head are relieved.
There are a lot of yoga accessories to discover not only to be used in the active practice. We are glad to offer you a lot to improve your relaxationl in the resting phase, Shavasana, as well. For example, have you ever used an eye pillow to help you relax even better? And if you snuggle up under a cotton blanket after your practice on a rainy autumn day, you're sure to stay relaxed a little longer. You have a cracked neck or can't fall asleep well? Then try an acupressure mat. For sure, it stings a little, but it helps immensely.
Of course, it is not always just about the practical components. Yoga accessories can also be beautiful. Treat yourself to a new yoga bag for your mat. We offer you different colorful models at moderate prices.
A yoga towel is found in those forms of yoga where you sweat a lot and where the yogamat can become slippery due to much sweat. Both in Bikram yoga and in Hot Yoga a yoga towel is likely used beside the yogamat. We offer two kinds of yoga towels: yoga towels with silicon knobs so that they can also be used upon a yogamat. You can also use microfiber towels on both sides to dry yourself. We also offer small kerchiefs for your hands, feet, and face.
A yoga block is predominantly used for lengthening the arms. Yoga blocks are generally needed in order to perform certain yoga postures on the yogamat when you are not very agile and fit yet. Then these aids are optimally suited to lengthen your tendons and muscles slowly. We have a variety of models: in cork we have the standard yoga block, an oval cork block and the yoga plate. We also offer yoga blocks from EVA foam. These blocks are pleasantly light; available in four different colors.
Yoga bolster is especially suited for lying down-exercises. Often they are used to stretch different parts of the body. Of course you can use a yoga bolster well also for sitting. We offer a selection of kinds and sizes: large bolsters and small bolsters as well as a neckroll and a long yoga roll.
Yoga belts are mainly used in the Iyengar-style yoga. A yoga belt has a similar function as a yoga-block: with their aid it is easier to practice certain asanas. Our yoga belts are made from heavy duty cotton and have two metal D-rings. They are available in 5 different colors.
Yoga cushions are basically the same as meditation cushions. The main difference is that yoga practitioners usually like a lower cushion than the kind used in meditation practice. Therefore, we carry several small meditation cushions. Among them are a round meditation cushion and a halfmoon yoga cushion. Do you need a higher meditation cushion? You find those on our special meditation-cushions-page.
