Sometimes the purpose for props can be confusing. Most just end up avoiding them because they are not sure how to use them. I was one of those who did this when I first started practicing yoga and I am still learning new ways to use them.
Here are three different poses that get easier and more comfortable if you use a bolster. I am pregnant in these photos, but these can be done whether you are pregnant or not.
When seated, put the bolster under your hips and simply sit on top of it. Then cross at the ankles and bend your knees. This is a seated pose most of us do on a very regular basis. But in reality, to get the alignment right, your knees should be in line with your hips or below them. The bolster helps to prop your hips up to achieve this perfect alignment and better comfort.
The bolster I like to use is from Hugger Mugger. I love the quality and comfort it gives. It is sturdy and soft. They have many different colors to choose from as well as other styles.
