Props for your Yoga practice...

Sew if you have any sewing ability, you can make these items for your Yoga practice.
  • And make your own bolsters. Now I found an article in one of my sewing books,"Sewing for the Outdoors", but then I found this on the internet...same concept. I used a roll of quilt batting, figured out how circle part on the bottom....well, kinda like the instructions for the yoga mat. Here's a link....
I used some cotton material that I had around the house. I used this same concept, to cover a neck roll that I had, so that I could also use this in restorative yoga poses.

Here's another link for making a stuff sack, or a cover for your cylinder shaped bolster...

Here are some additional links to making your own yoga mat bag, even a cool video, and a way to make a yoga mat wrap....plus some more on zafu's!!
