Eye Pillow for Yoga – tool for final relaxation. Beginners Yoga Nederland & Beaumont Texas.

Brought back all the eye pillows I’ve made for my beginners yoga class on Monday nights.  I’m thinking of making new ones, or modifying the ones I already have.  I like the seam down the center, so as to lessen the pressure on the bridge of the nose.

There are a lot of DIY, upcycle, recycle tutorials on the eye pillows.  I don’t put the flax seed, nor lavender in mine.  Just rice.  Plus when we use them in class, I have my students put a tissue down first, then the eye pillow.

The original eye pod – eye pillows for invoking ease and lessening of stress

My Eye Pillow with a seam down the middle for easing pressure on the bridge of the nose.  It isn’t pretty, my stitching, etc, but it gets the job done!  Love it!

Here are some links to popular tutorials for making your own!
