Why to Use Yoga Sand Bag?

While the most common use of a yoga sandbag is to deepen stretches by adding weight it can also be used to bring awareness to a specific area like placing it on the stomach or chest to more clearly feel the rise and fall of the breath. This sandbag can be placed under the heels as support during a deep knee bend or under the toes to deepen a calf stretch. There are myriad ways a sandbag can inform and deepen your practice.

Craft Story:

The bag is woven of natural fibers like Jute and Cotton fabrics by a collective of 45 Craftswomen from Rajankatti, Makelmardi, Kadoli, Hunnur, Telaganatti, Madanbhavi, and Chikoppa which are drought prone regions in the state of Karnataka. In this jute cotton mat, jute is used in horizontal fashion (in shuttles of loom) to hide the roughness, and to give a detailed finish through cotton thread overlaying. This cotton gives a fine smooth texture feel to the product. 

These products are made with using many of Northern Karnataka’s craft-traditions and techniques such as: indigo dyeing of the Neelgars, rope-twisting, folk-stitching and joinery of the Nadafs, vegetable tanning/dyeing of hides and leather-crafting of the Dhor and Samgar communities, wool-felting, spinning and kambal weaving techniques of sheepherding communities.

Care Instructions: 

The sand bag is suitable for both hand wash and machine wash in cold water, using a mild detergent. This ensures that your bolster cover remains clean, fresh and germ-free at all times. Use no bleach or softener and also no centrifugation. Hang dry.
