Yoga straps are often used when practising yoga, especially by beginners. A yoga strap (such as the one pictured here alongside a yoga brick / block) can be used to help you stretch into postures more safely, and to keep your shoulders and legs in place while performing routines. For such a simple piece of equipment, it will make your poses a lot easier.
By using a yoga strap you can forego the fact that you are not very flexible, and let the strap do all the hard work for you. This lack of flexibility might be due to a medical condition or your body structure might simply not be up to the task. Either way, this essential piece of yoga equipment will help you.
Yoga straps can come in different sizes and can be tailored to how much, and the type of, use it’s going to get. By choosing the right size and type for yourself will make holding poses for longer periods of time a doddle and will help increase flexibility and concentration over time.
A yoga strap can be used in pretty much all styles / types of yoga, and at all levels of knowledge – though the beginner might find more use than an expert instructor. Having said that, the use of a strap quite often increases with the difficulty levels of the yoga poses.
