Restorative Yoga – How to Fold a Yoga Blanket

Posted in How-To,Yoga,Yoga Blanket by Harmony on March 9, 2010

Last week’s Restorative Yoga Video gave us some ideas on how to use yoga props (such as a bolster, blanket, and blocks). This week’s short video reviews the different ways to fold a yoga blanket. As you’ll see, there are several ways to fold a blanket depending on what pose you’ll be doing and how you’ll be using this prop.

Mexican Yoga Blankets can be used for many different reasons:

  • Fold the blanket to sit on to raise the hips in cross-legged positions or during seated forward folds.  Fold once, twice, or three times – depending on your personal needs that day.
  • Folding or rolling lengthwise to place under your spine in supine positions.  This helps to open the chest & heart center when lying down.  Feels great.
  • Lay the blanket open either underneath or on top of you in supine poses.  Cushions and warms so you can relax more deeply.

This video shows several different ways to fold a yoga blanket, which she’ll refer to in our upcoming videos showing specific restorative poses.
