As a yoga practitioner, I noticed my dear friend, Julie, struggling with achieving the full depth of certain yoga poses such as the Happy Baby (Ananda Balasana). Through a desire to help Julie progress in her poses and enjoy our weekly yoga practice more, I set out to design Julie a 3-loop yoga strap for her birthday, so she could grab onto the bottom, middle, and eventually the top loop to reach her feet, increase her flexibility, and achieve a proper Happy Baby (Ananda Balasana) along with other poses. The result was amazing! With the Zen Yoga Strap, Julie was able to progress from her knees to her feet and receive the full benefits of the Happy Baby (Ananda Balasana) pose within nine months!
Through the excitement of watching Julie progress, our fellow yogis and yoga teachers requested to try the straps as well during a yoga teacher training class. The feedback we received was incredibly positive! Our straps allowed yogis to lose dealing with the buckles and the excess straps of standard yoga straps.
The Zen Yoga Strap is the first and only in the market of its kind.
What started as a desire to help a friend progress in her yoga practice has grown into an opportunity to help many yogis and athletes improve their flexibility, obtain deeper stretches, and enjoy the full benefits of yoga – improved balance, respiration, energy, and vitality.
