What is a Yoga Egg?
Three Minute Egg has created a yoga prop which is similar to yoga blocks but the innovative and yet simple design of the Egg makes them much more versatile.
Three Minute Egg was initially created by Jason Scholder as a way to help stretch his lower back. His story of how this evolved into a full-fledged business (aptly titled “Hatching an Egg”) is very interesting and fun to read. Click here to check it out (oh yeah, did we mention that Three Minute Egg is an Asheville-based company? Woohoo!).
Think Outside the Blocks
These Eggs are ergonomically designed to work with the shape of your body. This is probably most obvious when used while lying on your back. The Egg maintains the natural curvature of the spine.
Eggs can also be used to relieve pressure on the wrists in Down Dog.
Practice advanced poses with more comfort and safety or explore more advanced poses in new ways.
This one prop can be used for all levels of practitioners and in many different styles of yoga. Click on these links for more information and pictures of the many uses of these Yoga Eggs:
Take your practice to new levels with your very own Yoga Eggs. Three Minute Egg has offered to give one of our readers a Namast-Egg Starter Kit, which includes two Eggs, an instructional DVD, and a backpack that holds the Eggs.
