Sufi Pranayama Bolster Flat Shape
A very versatile prop: a longer and thinner variation of the standard oval bolster initially designed according to the instructions of BKS Iyengar for the practice of pranayama. You can position the pranayama bolster along your spine to elevate your chest gently to give you support and expansion during deep breathing practices when you're lying down... you can use it for cushioning in kneeling postures... tucked below your knees in Savasana... to elevate your sit-bones slightly in lotus position... or to support your spine so you can remain comfortably upright in a pyramid seated position. Made of cotton chambray with gorgeous embroidery, contrasting velvet base panel, contrast piping and finished off with a colourful tassel inspired by those seen on the camels of Rajasthan’s Thar Desert, this is an truly special piece.
The blue Sufi design is a series of round motifs inspired by Sufi whirling dervishes who seek spirituality by abandoning ego, listening to music, focusing on the divine, and spinning in repetitive circles. Originating with Persian mystics, Sufi dervishes whirl in India, too! This range of wonderful yoga and meditation accessories was brought to life by a dear friend and ex-neighbour of mine in Delhi, who has relocated her company Chattra to that New Age haven of California. Her products chime with the Bombay Duck values of pattern, colour, loads of details and also ethical production, and are designed to be so beautiful you will not want to put them away when your practice is over!
