The Body Loop for Postural Support, Restorative Poses and Gentle Movement

The Body Loop can be used in restorative postures in place of bolsters, straps and blankets. The Body Loops can also be worn to help people feel the shoulder loop actions in the upper body, relieving strain in overused muscles while improving posture. Gentle movements with the Body Loop helps people feel more connected to their bodies as they move in non-linear patterns.

The Body Loop for Yoga Based Movement

As many yoga practitioners have discovered going to end range in poses can lead to instability, hyper-mobility, pain and injury. Using the Body Loop in yoga poses provides resistance and support at the end range encouraging more muscle activation, recruitment and joint stability. The Body Loop trains more strength into yoga postures - rather than doing poses passively using the Body Loop encourages a dynamic relationship with the pose. This challenge is perfect for beginners and helps long time practitioners who have become flexible, find the strength they need to stabilize.
