In this post, I review the 24" Cylindrical Yoga Bolster by Halfmoon. Halfmoon is a Canadian company based in Vancouver that hand makes yoga bolsters, meditation cushions and other yoga props. I absolutely love my Halfmoon Yoga Bolster so I wanted to write this post to share the yoga love with you!
How does this yoga bolster perform?
I have scoliosis (an abnormal curvature of the spine) so I have back pain most of the time. Sometimes the pain can get so bad that it affects my breathing. This yoga bolster is an important part of what I do to keep the pain under control.
The firmness and dimensions of this bolster are perfect! The length of the bolster allows you to rest your head comfortably without causing any neck strain. The width of the bolster is perfect to open your chest and provide a deep (but comfortable) back stretch. The amount of time I can spend on the bolster depends on my level of pain on that particular day. However, I have noticed that the more I use this bolster regularly, the better my back feels and the more time I can spend on it.
Overall, I love this Halfmoon yoga bolster! I highly (highly!) recommend it.
The specific details are available on their website but here are a few points that I want to highlight:
- The bolster is made in Vancouver, Canada
- The cover is removable and machine washable. The fabric is of very good quality - I was very impressed!
- The cover is 100% cotton and the fill is made with natural cotton batting
They have a several awesome colour options too! On their website, they currently have five Limited Edition patterns and five solid colours to choose from.
In addition to the 24" cylindrical bolster, they have a mini version (16") and a tall version (30"). They also have bolsters in other shapes, such as the Rectangular Bolster and the Prana Bolster (both come in different sizes too!).
Finally, hey have a bunch of other products such as yoga props, yoga mats, meditation cushions, etc. In particular, I thought it was pretty cool that they have a biodegradable and compostable yoga mat!
