Organic Yoga Strap [Review+Giveaway]

With the recent extremely cold temperatures, I am having to get creative about exercising at home. When it feels like 5 degrees outside, I do not want to take my toddler in the jogging stroller, let alone put on three layers to stay warm. I do love my thermal running tights and gloves, but having to put on three layers is just too much for me sometimes. Plus, workout DVDs and yoga are a great compliment to my running. Yoga has been great at helping me to stretch and strengthen my back and my legs. An organic cotton yoga strap is the best yoga accessory to assist with stretching and holding poses.

The Good
The Not So Good
Certified organic cotton

Durable and strong

Metal D buckle

A few years ago, when I was taking a weekly yoga class, we sometimes used yoga straps. I always enjoyed using them to assist with stretching or holding certain poses. When I received the Clever Yoga organic yoga strap, I was very impressed with the high quality, durable cotton. I also love that the cotton is certified organic. The packing at minimal and recyclable. That is also important to me.

The Clever Yoga strap I received comes with a metal D buckle. I prefer this type of buckle over a plastic one. The D buckle allows for quick adjustments in shortening or lengthening the yoga strap.

I wanted to start out using the yoga strap for stretching. My back and shoulders are periodically sore and tense from carrying around my toddler. Therefore, I wanted to focus on stretching and strengthening my upper body. My favorite ways to use the yoga strap have been to aid in straightening the back for better posture by using the yoga strap to straighten my back and hold it in that pose. I also enjoy using the strap to do side stretches.

My biggest discovery has been the ability of the yoga strap to also strengthen my upper body. When I am using the yoga strap to assist in a pose, my arms hold the strap ends. This is a great workout for my arm, shoulders and upper back.

I would recommend Clever Yoga organic yoga strap. The organic cotton is durable and will last a long time. The price is very affordable, especially for organic cotton. A yoga strap is a required accessory for any yoga level. Yoga straps can also be used for physical therapy.
