The bheka BREEZE Tadpole is small but mighty! Among its many powers is the ability to be a comfortable seat in cross-legged and knee forward positions, so it is a super meditation or pranayama cushion.
It is also great for knee support in cross-legged poses, under the neck or head in supine poses (or when travelling by air or on the train or bus). Because it is inflatable, it is also adjustable so you can get just the right amount of support or height for each situation.
At a recent yoga conference a woman in wheel chair was looking for a back support at my booth. Fully inflated she did not like the BREEZE Tadpole but half inflated she loved it. It is great for lumbar support in the car too! And like all BREEZE bolsters, the inflatable bladder is made from 7 phthalate free PVC and can be cleaned with most common cleansers and disinfectants and the outer cover is either flocked polyester (solid colors) or 100 percent cotton (India Print) and can be machine washed gentle cycle and hang dried for easy care.
As if that were not enough reason to love this little bolster, consider this; the bheka BREEZE Tadpole weighs a little over 5 ounces, less than your smart phone and takes up a little more room than most wallets, so it can go in your purse, handbag, back pack or pocket with relative ease. For travelling teachers carrying a dozen of these to your next class is, dare I say it? A BREEZE!
Details on the bheka BREEZE Tadpole
The easy carry loop, light weight of about 5 ounces and petite dimensions of 4”x7”x13” makes the Tadpole a joy to take everywhere. The soft sueded polyester material of some of the solid colors is machine washable and soft against your skin. The 100% cotton canvas of the other covers is extremely durable and softens with use. Each should be air dried for best fit. The seven pthalate free insert is ethically sourced from China and the covers are ethically sourced from Mother India . Covers and inserts are available separately. Filling the BREEZE is as easy as filling a small pool toy. It takes about a minute using the little foot pump you see below and is even quicker by mouth or mechanical inflater. This bolster is safe for use by people up to 300 pounds.
