Sandbags are often used in both yoga and pilates to deepen stretches by placing the sandbag on your knees during seated poses, on your thigh in a kneeling pose, or to stretch your arms behind your back. You give yourself a lift in seated poses or seated meditation. There are many uses for this essential classic yoga prop. A sandbag on each thigh in bound angle pose helps the hips open so always consider a pair!
These bags contain a unique, double-zippered, leak-proof system so that you can easily fill the sandbags with any dry item such as sand, beans, wheat, corn, or rice and adjust to your desired weight.
