This video is showing some intermediate/advanced backbend poses and how to use a Yoga Strap to get deeper into these backbends. Most people tend to think props are only necessary as a beginner or to help overcome inflexibility.

Yoga Straps come in several different lengths, from 6′ to 10′ long. Consider your arm length, leg length, the poses you’ll be using a strap for, and if you are going to be using a strap doubled over in a long loop for your poses. Your answers will help you in your purchasing decision.

There are a variety of Yoga Straps to choose from.

  • You can choose cotton or hemp material.
  • Buckles are either a plastic cinch buckle or a metal d-ring style.
  • And you can choose from lengths of 6 feet to 10 feet.

These are all personal choice decisions.  The longer lengths may be preferred by taller people, or by those who prefer bound poses, or Iyengar practitioners using lots of props.  Both types of buckles are easy to use, but some people may find the d-ring a little easier but the plastic buckles are a little quieter when allowing the strap to be used without looping.  When deciding between the cotton or hemp straps, you may want to read about the environmental benefits of hemp before making a decision.
