How do you carry a yoga mat DIY?
- Measure 3″ from one of the ends of your webbing, fold it so that it overlaps, making a loop.
- Thread your embroidery needle and make a large cross stitch, filling in as much space between the straight pin and the cut end of the webbing to secure the loop in place.
- Feed the opposite tail end through the loop.

How do you secure a yoga mat?
Slip the “noose” you create over the rolled yoga mat to position the strap at the center of the mat. Tighten the noose, or loop, securely around the mat. Grab the free end of the strap, sling it over your shoulder and carry your mat.
How do you tie a string on a yoga mat?
To do this, start with the left side and make a “4” pattern with your left outside rope, laying it on top of the middle ropes. Then bring the right long rope over the left rope you just folded over, and push it under and through the large hole of the “4”. Pull it tight, and your first square knot is complete!
What can I use if I don’t have yoga blocks?
In place of blocks for seated poses you can use firm cushions, folded blankets or a stack of books. You will also see blocks used in standing poses such as Parivrtta Trikonasana (Revolved Triangle Pose) where the hands don’t easily reach the floor.
What can I use instead of a yoga bolster?
Yoga Bolsters To make a bolster substitute, lay two pillows on a towel side by side and then roll up the towel to form a sausage shape. You can also roll up a longitudinally folded blanket and then tie it up with rope. Oh, and any old yoga mat rolled up and tied up with a string is automatically a good bolster as well.
What can I use instead of a yoga strap?
As long as fastening is not required, a yoga strap can definitely be replaced by a necktie, scarf, a robe tie, or a towel. Once buckling is required, only a cloth belt with a loop closure will suffice as a substitute.
What are yoga straps for?
Straps are mainly used for stretching so that users achieve wide range of motion. Even people who stretch their legs while doing sitting poses can benefit from these straps. One technique is to grab both ends and pull it towards them while leaning into the pose.
How long do Lululemon yoga mats last?
Mine has held up for over four years without flaking or tearing. If you’re concerned with sweat stains or shoe marks, I’d suggest one of the patterned options, or just embrace those smears as badges of honor of an enthusiastic yoga practice.
