Many children enjoy participation in sports; however, without proper precautions, sports can also lead to an assortment of potentially serious injuries. As Children’s Hospital Boston reports, roughly 3 million children under 14 are injured while participating in sports annually. While you can do nothing to take all the danger out of sports, you can be aware of the injuries for which your child is at risk, and ensure that you protect against them as much as possible.
A yoga belt or yoga strap is an ideal yoga prop for the beginner or anyone with flexibility or mobility issues. A yoga belt is a cotton, hemp or nylon-webbing strap, typically 6 to 9 feet long, used to extend the body and allow you increased flexibility. A simple buckle on one end allows you to shorten and secure the yoga belt as needed. While you may need a yoga belt less and less as time goes on, even advanced practitioners may still find a yoga strap helpful.
