Cosy, protective, warming and comfortable: high-quality blankets for meditation, pranayama and leisure time!
Cozy, cosy and warm - your yoga blanket
When it comes to yoga practice, you might first think of asanas on your yoga mat, and that's usually more sweaty than cold. But then there are also the calm elements such as final relaxation, meditation or breathing exercises - and in these you quickly cool down and suddenly long for a comforting warm shelter. There are many moments in your yoga practice when you can use a warm and cosy blanket:
Your yoga blanket in Shavasana
The final relaxation is part of almost all yoga sessions, as it gives you the opportunity to quiet the body and feel deeply again what you have experienced during the yoga session, in order to appreciate and integrate it before returning to the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Mostly Shavasana is chosen as the position for this soothing and important relaxation phase. So that you don't freeze during relaxation (which can easily happen if you have been sweating), it is advisable to have a yoga blanket handy to protect you from getting chilled. This way you stay warm and can fully enjoy the final relaxation
Your yoga blanket in meditation
A yoga blanket can also be of great help when meditating. After all, even if you stay in a sitting posture for a longer period of time - perhaps in the early morning, in a slightly cooler room or outside in nature - it can be easy for your body to cool down. Perhaps you are so absorbed that you don't even notice it at first and only start to feel cold after the meditation. It is good to take precautions and wrap yourself in a meditation shawl or a protective yoga blanket. If you get too warm after a while, you can simply take off the blanket - this is less disruptive to your meditation than taking off a jacket or jumper in the middle of your meditation
And your yoga blanket for pranayama
The same goes for pranayama sessions: If you're not practising warming breathing techniques, wrapping yourself in a warming yoga blanket is often a good tip here too
By the way: sometimes the yoga blanket also helps in asana practice...
Occasionally, people not only use yoga blocks, yoga-belts or pillows in their asana practice, but also use blankets to provide elevation (e.g. under their head or under their back).Under the head or buttocks, for example). Depending on how often you fold the blanket, you can easily achieve the height you need. Here, too, it always proves very practical and useful to have a yoga blanket ready next to the mat. Yoga blankets are really versatile and can even be used in the asanas!
Not to mention, your yoga blanket also feels at home on the sofa, making it a universal cuddly accessory!

...And here again in brief:
What is a yoga blanket needed for?
A yoga blanket can be used in yoga practice whenever you want to protect yourself from getting chilled or cold: this is especially the case in the final relaxation (usually shavasana), when meditating and when practising pranayama. In addition, when folded, it can be used as an aid when elevation or padding is needed in the asanas - for example, in supine postures under the head or legs, or in sitting postures under the head.
What qualities should a yoga blanket have?
A yoga blanket should be warm, yet light and comfortable. Breathable materials are therefore particularly suitable for yoga blankets. The yoga blanket should also be large enough so that you can cover yourself completely with it or wrap yourself in it.
