Tamarind Mehndi Pranayama Bolster
Cover only $32.00 | Pranayama bolster + cover $68.00
Tamarind Mehndi Pranayama Bolster’s print is inspired by the decorative skin art created on hands, feet and arms during Hindu festivals and weddings. The use of mehndi (from the Sanskrit word mendhikā) and haldi (turmeric paste stain) is described in the earliest Hindu Vedic ritual books; it symbolizes the outer and inner sun, representing the Vedic idea of awakening the inner light. Hand-block printed in warm tamarind brown. Finished with illuminating orange piping and a colorful tassel like those seen on the camels of Rajasthan’s great Thar Desert. Divine in any home practice or studio interior.
Place a chattra pranayama bolster along your spine for support and expansion during deep breath practice. Also provides support to reduce strain and enhance relaxation during restorative yoga poses. Aids in deepening poses, and offers assistance when practicing while pregnant and when learning asanas.
100% cotton cover hand-crafted in India; integrated handle; lined with 100% cotton liner; hand-packed in the USA with US-grown clean cotton.
The artisan's hand work is revealed in each chattra textile, including print density and block alignment; imperfections are characteristic and add to the charm of this traditional technique.
