RAVI integrated into yoga practice.

There are 7 distinct ways that you can apply the RAVI weighted blanket to your yoga practice.

Calm

Placing RAVI weighted blanket on the body supports the parasympathetic nervous system.  The body reacts to weight like a hug and this helps promote calming of the senses.

Placing RAVI onto the body with the intention of relaxing deeper helps create calming of the body.

 

 

Ground

Grounding is the art of drawing your awareness into the body and into the present moment.  RAVI acts as a focal point that is always in the present.

The RAVI has a built in hugging effect that is comforting and relaxing.

 

 

Strengthen

Traditionally yoga is practiced with no external resistance.  RAVI allows you to gently add controlled resistance to create more strength.

The weight also distributes over larger areas of the body that often allows for less strain on the joints.

 

 

Stretch

RAVI weight adds an anchor and/or additional torque into your YIN Stretches.

Anchor – holding the body in place to allow for a fuller stretch.

Torque – the RAVI weight adds pressure to the stretch that is easy to modify.

 

 

Support

RAVI can complement the foundation by adding support under the body.  As a support, RAVI can fold into different shapes and mold to the height and shape required.

 

 

 

Focus

RAVI helps to calm the senses and anchor your focus for meditation.

 

 

 

Breathe

RAVI provides a new way to focus and practice pranayama.

Strategically place the RAVI on the chest or belly and target breath directly into that area.  Try to lift the RAVI with the breath in and let it sink deeper into the body on the exhale.
