Taking your Yoga Sling on Holiday

Taking your Yoga Sling on Holiday

Want to keep up your yoga practice while on holiday? Pack up your yoga alignment sling to help you correct and deepen yoga postures. It is light enough and does not take much space making it easily packable. It is a great replacement of the yoga ropes found in Iyengar yoga studios (AKA yoga kurunta).
