Strong and practical, this is our thickest yoga belt, allowing a safe grip without hurting your hands. Widely used in Iyengar yoga classes, they come in a rainbow of colours and feature the original Iyengar metal sliding bar buckle, which can be used to adjust the length. Belts are regularly used in poses such as paschimottanasana (forward bend) and gomukhasana (cow face pose) to extend and lengthen reach.
My fellow yogi classmate is loves using this belt on me! As it's slightly wider than some on the market it makes it more comfortable to work with. It's very good length for when working with it doubled in half length wise. The buckle is also nice and easy to work with as opposed to double "D" ring system. Worth every penny.
Bought the belt along with other products needed for a 12 week course in Lower back pain. As this week is only the 2nd week, I haven't used it yet, but looking through the book which accompanies the course - it will be used later. Pleased with it and also love the colour.
This is a bit expensive compared to some other belts available but the most important thing for me is that it is long enough. I'm 6' tall and most of the other belts are too short for me to use them comfortably.
As I say, its a yoga belt. I went for slightly wider as I'll use it primarily on my arms for inversions so wanted something to "displace" the pressure more. Its very comfy on in pincha/forearm stand. Would recommend if you have sensitive skin or have a low pain threshold as it does the job.
