How do I use a yoga eye pillow?

Yoga eye pillows are great for relieving stress and anxiety and just generally relaxing. Here are 5 ways you can use your yoga eye pillow:

1. For Relaxation

Warm up your eye pillow – on the radiator for that extra warm glow (microwave not recommended as eyes are sensitive to heat), check its not too hot as you lie down on your mat, or on a nice soft blanket and swing your legs up over the sofa. Place it over your eyes and enjoy the sensation of a warm healing hand helping you to let go of life’s stresses. Breathe a sigh of relief and know that all you need to do is…nothing

2. For tired eyes & Headaches

Cool down in the fridge – for headaches, and tired eyes, take off the outer cover (more hygienic) and place the inner bag in the fridge. Replace the cover, lie down and place the cooling and soothing eye pillow over your eyes and recover from too much visual overload. All you need to do is…relax

3. For a stiff neck or shoulders 

Fold the eye pillow in two so it’s a solid square shape (warm from the radiator can be helpful too). Lie down and place the eye pillow at the base of your neck. All you need to do is…take long exhales and feel the heavy weight of your head drop into the floor.

4. To relieve Back pain

Sitting in a straight backed chair, place the eye pillow, folded in half, between the seat and the area of pain (cold from the fridge or warm from the radiator can be helpful too). All you need to do is…melt your back into the eye pillow

5. For insomnia 

In bed, smell the lavender gently relaxing your senses. If you’re on your back, place it over your eyes, forehead or throat, or find another sleeping position and place it in your hand. All you need to do is…allow your mind to clear and the wave of sleep to enfold you!
