Bheka all cotton yoga straps can be used for a multitude of poses: they can help you to extend your reach, open your shoulders and hips, maintain stretch in your arms or legs, and encourage you to move deeper overall into many yoga poses. The D-rings are heavy so they can stand up to years of hard use and large enough to make it easy to loop your strap through. Our straps are built tough to give you years of service, but are soft to the touch. The denseness of our cotton strapping not only makes the straps strong, but it adds a stiffness which makes looping a strap and extending it easier than with a floppier, less dense strap. The straps are 1 inch wide for comfort.
