  • Support in seated poses: Folded blankets can elevate the hips and support the knees in seated poses, like Sukhasana or Siddhasana. This helps to maintain proper alignment, reduce strain on the knees and hips, and improve comfort during long holds.
  • Prop for forward folds: In forward folds, blankets can support the forehead or torso, making it easier to relax into the pose and release tension in the neck and shoulders.
  • Cushion in Savasana: A folded blanket can be placed under the head and neck in Savasana, providing extra cushioning and support for the head and neck.
  • Shoulder stand support: A folded blanket can be placed under the shoulders to support the neck and shoulders during Shoulder Stand, allowing for a more comfortable hold and reducing the risk of strain or injury.
  • Knee support: In kneeling poses, such as Hero Pose, blankets can be folded and placed under the knees to provide extra cushioning and support.
  • Insulation and warmth: During a restorative or yin practice, blankets can keep the body warm and comfortable during long holds.
