Yoga Straps are most often used in Yoga but they can also be used at home anytime you are doing stretches or want to improve your flexibility and also in a physical therapy session as well. Yoga straps help you maintain good form, good posture and still get deep into the stretch whether you are a beginner or advanced yogi. As an example yoga straps help you with a variety of poses/stretches such as hand to foot connection, hand to hand connection, forward bend, standing bend. As a general tip be sure to work through your own range of motion even when you are using a strap, never stretch to the point of pain even though a strap could help you stretch a little further than you could on your own just keep in mind that you should never go past 5-7 on a scale of 1-10 when you are stretching.
