Eye Pillows & Sandbags
Eye pillows are often used in restorative yoga as the gentle weight on your eyeballs stimulates the vagus nerve, lowering your heart rate and improving overall relaxation and wellness.
EYE PILLOWS – ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Yoga isn’t just about getting hot and sweaty. It can also be a time for stillness and contemplation. Restorative
yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga, encouraging mental and physical relaxation. With a focus on breathing and
body intuition, restorative yoga can be a deeply emotional time to connect with body and mind.
Switching off in the modern world can be a challenge. Eye pillows are a fantastic prop for anyone who struggles to let go of the day during restorative yoga or meditation. These pillows are lightly weighted, often with seeds, and can be hooked over the ears to gently weight the eyelids. They can be warmed or cooled to your preference and are also excellent for easing headaches. Use a meditation cushion to support the body, pop on your eye pillows, light some incense or candles and allow yourself to tingle and drift into a place of reflection.
