Judith's Recommended Yoga Props


The MAKE-A-BOLSTER becomes a circular bolster providing a firm support for yoga restorative and asana practice whether at home or traveling, and eliminates paying a checked baggage fee for a bolster when traveling by air.

When traveling or being stored, the MAKE-A-BOLSTER is portable, compact, and flat. A blanket from your hotel room or home is folded to approximate the bolster width, tightly rolled incorporating a sleep pillow (flattening the pillow as your roll), placed in the center and zipped to form the round bolster. The tighter the roll, the firmer the bolster. Depending on blanket size, a thick bath towel or second blanket may be needed. The MAKE-A-BOLSTER's unique design is by yoga instructor Lerna Clearman and has a patent pending.

The Yoga Chair Prop is used in yoga studios by teachers in order to help their students align their bodies into its ideal position. Serious practitioners of yoga often have a home practice and maintain an assortment of props like blocks, bolsters, belts, chairs etc. to assist them in their poses. The standard-sized chair is manufactured without a front lower rung, enabling the chair to be used in a wide variety of ways. Salamba Sarvangasana, Viparita Dandasana and Pinca Mayurasana are a few examples.

It is in my yoga practice room at home, and when I walk into a studio and see this system, I feel confident that my work with students on the wall ropes during class will be easy, safe  and simple. My highest recommendation."
