Introducing the Jumbo Egg
Let’s face it. Size matters. And when it comes to yoga, having the right size Egg for the postures you want to practice means everything. The Eggs should fit comfortably in your hands and conform effortlessly to the dimensions of your body. After all, yoga shouldn’t just be something that makes you limber. Done right, your practice should leave your body, mind and spirit feeling very deeply unified and at peace. That’s why we’ve created the Jumbo Egg!
Jumbo Egg Features:
- Ease of Use
How Big is it?
The Jumbo Egg is just over 13” long, about 5” tall, and a luxurious 4” thick. It’s designed for bigger bodies (5’10” and taller, and anyone over 180lbs). The length of the harder Eggs really comes into play during standing poses, where taller people need taller props, and arm-balancing poses (including things like lunges and Up-Dog, when our hands need to be forward enough on the Egg that the Egg tips forward, protecting the wrist. These longer, taller soft Eggs support more of the spine and provide a slightly deeper supported back-bend.
How Hard is it?
TheJumbo Egg comes in two densities: Hard-Boiled, for weight-bearing poses (when the Eggs are in your hands and your weight is on the Eggs, you want Hard-Boiled Eggs); and Soft-Boiled, for restorative postures (because when you plan on resting in a pose for a while, comfort is of paramount importance.
How Many Do I Need?
For sure you need at least 2 Hard-boiled Jumbos (one for each hand or foot) and ideally somewhere between 2-4 Soft ones. It’s nice to have 2-3 Eggs behind your back, and one under your head.
Why Are Eggs Better Than Bolsters?
Bolsters are like old mattresses. They feel soft and inviting at first, but the longer you lay there, the more uncomfortable they become. Bolsters have a way of collapsing where you need support and bulging where you don’t need anything. Also, getting the exact right bolster set-up can be laborious and time-consuming and difficult to remember and repeat. Conversely, once you understand the Eggs, setting them up as needed is quick, painless, repeatable and easily modified. And if you’re a teacher, they’re super easy to instruct with! Gone is the complicated folding and refolding of blankets. Usher in this new era where Eggs can literally do it all!
