The invention of blanket yoga

By combining the two, one yoga instructor developed blanket yoga known as Kambal.

Kambal comes from the Hindi language and means a blanket or shawl made of coarse wool. Kambal yoga uses blankets as props to deepen the relaxing and restorative effects that yoga produces.

Kudd.ly blankets are luxuriously soft and weighted by ultra-silent, micro sand glass beads secured within their folds of fabric to produce comforting pressure.

Deepen your yoga practice

Weighted blankets provide what is known as deep pressure stimulation. This specific touch places gentle pressure around the body and calms the nervous system while increasing the release of happy hormones. Essentially, weighted blankets use deep pressure stimulation to produce an overall sense of calm and wellbeing by relaxing muscles, slowing the heart rate, and improving circulation.

Get more out of savasana

Savasana, or the corpse pose, is a pose for total relaxation. It is one of the most basic poses of restorative yoga, and therefore fundamental to any routine. Yet, it is one of the most challenging yoga positions to get right.

To perform the pose, you must lay flat on your back and relax each muscle group in turn. After which, you must focus on your breathing while emptying your mind of thoughts. Some find this task of relaxing their mind to be difficult, and so placing a weighted blanket over your body can be useful here.

Release tension and stress

By rolling up your weighted blanket and placing it under your feet, knees, thighs, and hips, you can lessen the strain on these parts of the body. This allows for a more in-depth focus of the engaged muscle groups and intended breathing techniques.
