We have decided to cut straight to it and stock the best eco yoga props from the leading manufacturer, Manduka. Our newest addition is the Manduka Align Yoga Strap. It works from the classic design by yoga teacher B.K.S Iyengar, and adds Manduka’s own feature, a zinc alloy buckle, which ensures that the belt does not budge when it is done up. This avoids the belt slipping when it is meant to be keeping you in alignment, such as when it is just above the elbows in shoulder stand. The dyes used are non-AZO and the strong cotton webbing is unbleached. This is a very durable yoga strap that will be yours for a long time. Belts are a fantastic aid to yoga and general stretching. I get a strange nerve pain on the outside of my thigh that I haven’t ‘solved’, but I do find that yoga, particularly with a strap, helps me, along with heat, rolling, and baths. Straps are also great because flexibility changes from day to day, and some days some help is just the thing. Please contact us if you have any questions about straps: we respond quickly!
