introducing the best Yoga Bolsters australia


In 2019, we made waves in the fitness and wellness industry by introducing innovative, plastic-free alternatives to traditional self-massage tools. Since then, our journey has been marked by growth and innovation. Expanding into pilates accessories, yoga essentials, and beyond, we continuously strive to redefine wellness. Quality Yoga Bolsters in Australia are incredibly hard to come by, so we wanted to create our own. While our first yoga bolster design, cream in colour and made of linen, served its purpose, we aimed for something better—a more sustainable, higher quality yoga bolster that seamlessly blends functionality with style. And thus, the cotton yoga bolster was born!

New Design: With our new cotton yoga bolsters, we deliver a higher quality product than ever before. The bolster features a reinforced cover, stronger zips, and a thicker handle strategically positioned for improved durability and ease of transport. Our design focus was on creating a bolster that's effortlessly portable, which lead us to relocating the handle to along the body of the bolster. Now, transporting the bolster around your space is easier than ever before.

New Colours: Our new bolster isn't just functional it is design to look great in your space. We wanted to expand our colour range after receiving your feedback that our customers wanted for more colours to choose from. We are excited to welcome two vibrant new hues to elevate your space. Opt for the warm, inviting tone of turmeric or the cool, calming shade of dusk grey. These fresh colours are perfect for adding a pop of personality to any room.

Better Material: While linen is great, we wanted our textiles to also be certified organic. We found a quality GOTS certified cotton supplier and got to work. Our new yoga bolster is meticulously crafted from the finest quality cotton, certified by GOTS—a testament to our commitment to sustainability and quality. And with its superior strength and durability, you can expect a bolster that lasts for years to come.

Restorative Backbends: Lie back on the bolster with it supporting your mid to upper back, allowing the spine to gently arch backward. This can be done in poses like Setu Bandhasana (Bridge Pose) or Supta Baddha Konasana (Reclining Bound Angle Pose).
Gentle Chest Openers: Position the bolster lengthwise along your spine and gently recline back, allowing your chest to open up. This can be beneficial in poses such as Supta Virasana (Reclining Hero Pose) or Matsyasana (Fish Pose).
Supported Forward Folds: Place the bolster lengthwise in front of you and fold forward over it, allowing your torso to rest comfortably. This can help deepen stretches in poses like Balasana (Child's Pose) or Paschimottanasana (Seated Forward Bend).
Savasana Variation: Use the bolster horizontally under your knees during Savasana (Corpse Pose) to release tension in the lower back and promote relaxation.
