The Lotus Wrap was designed after a Vipassana Meditation Retreat where I struggled to find a comfortable position when sitting for long periods of time. During that retreat I tied a piece of fabric around my low back and knees to ease the discomfort however it kept stretching out and becoming too loose. This was where an adjustable meditation wrap belt idea was born.
The Lotus Wrap sitting strap allows one to comfortably sit for a long period of time on the ground or floor and maintain focus. Not only does it relieve muscle soreness and lumbar pain when sitting but the art of wrapping yourself activates the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS) which is how our bodies regenerate and repair. People with chronic back pain, hurt legs or injured knees find great comfort in the Lotus Wrap. Quick tip: if your feet fall asleep when sitting on the floor with crossed legs simply sit on the edge of a folded blanket, foam chip block or on a bolster to elevate your torso.
As mentioned, the Lotus Wrap is wonderful in meditation but did you know it is also the perfect tool for Restorative and Yin Yoga, and Stretch class? By keeping the Lotus Wrap in a loop it is easy to transition between extended hold positions, and wrapping the body signals the PNS letting your body know it’s safe to relax and release held muscles and tension.
When sitting in a Lotus Wrap you are ultimately retraining your posture by stabilizing the pelvis which allows the spine to return to its natural curvature. Another way to wear the Lotus Wrap for posture correction is to wrap the shoulders for just 15 minutes a day to bring a positive change in your posture. [See photo]
*** Please note, this Lotus Wrap is quite bulky and therefore not the most comfortable in Shoulder Wrap ***
Designing an eco-friendly product that would help people connect within themselves and ultimately lead an empowered life is amazing motivation. We manufacture the Lotus Wrap locally in Vancouver, Canada to reduce our carbon footprint and maintain quality control. We use high thread count, natural fabrics, along with specialized stitching to ensure the rings will never tear loose, and pull test each ring batch to 250lbs so you will never have to worry about it letting go in a posture. The Lotus Wrap is designed to last and we offer a Lifetime Limited Manufacturer’s Warrantee should your Lotus Wrap ever break or tear. Our packaging is made from recycled paper and compostable plastics, because we want to contribute to happy people and a happy planet.
These attributes and attention to detail are what sets the Lotus Wrap apart from other portable meditation seats and posture trainers. The Lotus Wrap is a superior quality, earth conscious product which brings comfort to your meditation, yoga and posture. It is also a great tension band for fitness training and is very comfortable which makes it perfect for travelling. It swaddles your legs when sitting on long flights or trips and wears as a scarf so no need to pack it in your luggage. Simply wear it through the gate!
BONUS USAGE ~ our doula & midwife friends love using the Lotus Wrap as a rebozo scarf to support pregnant and laboring mamas! The favorite Lotus Wrap poses to support mum & baby are: cow pose, 'shake the apple tree' and a MUST in 'closing of the bones' ceremony.
• Regular 8’ foot length (96” inches)
• XL 9.5’ foot length (114” inches) for those blessed with long limbs or a curvy figure.
Sizing: with a flexible measuring tape or 8’ yoga strap, measure the outside diameter of your body when seated in Staff Pose. If 8’ is too short the 114” Lotus Wrap is the one for you!

HOW DO I DETERMINE WHICH SIZE TO BY?
The 96" inch (8' foot) long Lotus Wraps generally fits most body shapes and sizes in almost all of the poses. The exceptions to the rule are Staff Pose and Shoulder Harness. For those of you blessed with long legs or curvy figures you may want to consider an X-Long Lotus Wrap if the aforementioned poses are important to you.
HOW DO I MEASURE?
Using a flexible tape measure or 8' foot long yoga strap test the poses on yourself to determine whether the 96" inch Wrap will be enough. As long as there are a minimum of three inches of fabric to pull through the rings, it will fit.
HOW DO I STOP THE FABRIC FROM SLIPPING?
Simply spread the fabric out between the two rings with your fingers so it takes up more room and ensure it is not twisted.
This typically occurs if the fabric tail is twisted or is pulled upward, downward or backward (towards the logo). It is best to draw the fabric tail in a straight line through the rings or it can bunch and slip back through the loops. If spreading the fabric out in the rings does not work, simply undo the fabric all the way, ensure the fabric is not twisted and re-thread through the rings.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY LOTUS WRAP?
Instructions for care are listed on each Lotus Wrap tag. Please read the care label carefully.
Machine washable, delicate cycle, tumble dry low or hang to dry, iron low.
Hang to dry to cut down and/or eliminate the need to iron
Wash/dry in a mesh garment bag or place two socks over the rings to stop them from banging around in
