Yoga Balls

Best Swiss Balls for Yoga

When I first started yoga I was a bit worried that I would never be able to hold the poses that the more experienced members of the class achieved with ease.

I felt as though my hands, knees, elbows and feet were all moving in different – an usually opposite – directions! Then, I bought a yoga ball. It was a revelation!

These balls help you with stability, strengthen your core muscles, protect your joints and, best of all, trains the body to move as a unit. I only wish I had owned one in my first few sessions! Don’t make the same mistake:
