Our high quality yoga strap will help you to get the most out of your yoga sessions in a number of different ways. Yoga straps are also known as yoga belts and are a very popular yoga prop. You will be able to adjust your alignment to make it correct, make deeper leg stretches and extend your reach with its extra length. With your 183cm yoga straps you can take your yoga sessions to the next level at home or in a yoga studio.
When you use one you will be able to measure the progress you are making and improve your flexibility at the same time. You will find them easy to use and very comfortable yoga prop due to their extra thickness.
Once you start to use them you will find that you can hold stretches. Whether you are new to yoga or experienced with it these yoga straps are an ideal accessory. They will provide you with a comfortable and safe way to hold those more challenging yoga stretches, increase your range of motion and reduce the risk of injury.
Why you need to get your Yoga Straps
The main reason to have them are that they enable you to extend your arms for extra length to become a lot more flexible with your yoga moves and range of motion. Basically you will be able to perform a lot more yoga poses than you could without a yoga prop.
Let’s assume that the Paschimottanasana (seated forward bend position) is not something that you can do right now. When you use a yoga belt you will be able to achieve this pose. A strap will help you to keep your spine and legs straight and help to relax your back.
Increased flexibility is not the only benefit. They will also provide you with good support, reducing the risk of injury. When you perform yoga poses for improving and maintaining balance this will help you to stretch and use strength.
One of the most challenging yoga poses is the “Lord of the Dance” (Natarajasana) and without using yoga belts most beginners will not be able to do it. When you use your yoga straps you can learn to do this properly. Your yoga straps will provide you with the flexibility to be able to reach your extended leg with your arms.
All you need to do is to wrap this yoga belt over your extended leg, through the ring buckle and hold it in both hands. You can then pull it upwards gently in the direction of your head while maintaining your balance. By using these you will minimise your chances of getting an injury with this pose.
It can also provide additional safety. If there are some yoga poses that you are unable to perform at the moment then using them will enable you to perform them safely with proper alignment.
When you use yoga straps you will prevent pulled muscles, the overstretching of your limbs and falls. There is a danger of you falling if you want to perform the more challenging asanas like Viparita Karani Mudra, Chakrasana and Vrischikasana.
Carry your Yoga Mat with Yoga Straps
There is nothing to stop you using your yoga straps to carry your yoga mat around or to the yoga studio rather than having to purchase a bag for it. There are a few advantages to buying a yoga bag such as protecting your mat from dust and damage.
It is really easy to use your yoga straps to wrap around your yoga mat and through the ring buckle. Transporting your yoga mat will be easier too when you use them to carry it.
