Did you know you could make a yoga bolster using blankets? It is quick, easy and free if your already have blankets (or at least cheaper than buying a bolster). It also reduces the amount of yoga accessories and storage needed.
Here is how to proceed:
- Fold 2 yoga blankets into a rectangular shape (the smaller side should be about 60/65cm long). To create this homemade yoga bolster, I used 2 Ananda Hum yoga blankets which are quite thick. You might need an extra one if the blankets you are using are not as thinner. The diameter should measure about 20/25cm.
- Then roll the first blanket tightly into a cylinder shape.
- Now roll the second yoga blanket around the cylinder you created (tightly). Repeat with another blanket if needed.
- Your homemade yoga bolster is ready!
You can use this homemade bolster until you get a "proper" one. Check out our yoga bolster here.
