It's no secret that most bodies love yoga.
For more than 3,000 years, the practice of yoga has increased the strength, flexibility, and mobility of millions around the world while also centering and calming the minds of countless others. The very word yoga stems from the Sanskrit root yuj, which translates to "union," or to "yolk or join." Although this relates to the union of the body and the mind, we're expanding upon the idea of yuj to unite you with a powerful tool that will make your tight muscles sigh with pleasure.
This tool is the yoga strap.
You may have seen this bandlike contraption wrapped around yogis performing feats of impossible flexibility, but don't let that scare you off. Yoga straps are an inexpensive tool everybody will benefit from and will help you deepen even the most simple of stretches.
Below, you'll find a list of exercises united with the yoga strap for the ultimate tension-releasing and posture-loving benefits.
