If you struggle with hyperextension and strain in your yoga or Pilates workouts, the Yoga-Mad EVA Foam Wedge is perfect for you. This versatile product can be used under your hands, feet or buttocks to help you form postures more easily, whilst preventing injury. The wedge is incredibly lightweight, meaning that you can take it with you to the studio, gym or PT with no trouble.

  • 1 x Yoga Wedge

Who Can Make Gains with the Yoga-Mad EVA Foam Wedge?

Yoga wedges, or planks, are often used by Iyengar teachers and students to prevent hyperextension in various poses. They help prevent pressure and wrist pain in Down and Up Dog, and can be used in Full Wheel to raise the palms. You can also place the wedge under your heels in Down Dog or during a wide squat if you suffer from tight calves. By preventing injury and discomfort, the EVA Foam Wedge allows you to ease into poses so that you can improve your technique.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Lightweight EVA foam for easy lifting and carrying
  • Sloped side to prevent wrist pain and hyperextension
  • Extra 50cm width can be used to support back and buttocks

How Do I Use the EVA Foam Yoga Wedge?

The Yoga-Mad EVA Wedge can help you to find the correct position for a pose and stay in it for longer. Try adding the wedge to some regular yoga poses, including the following:

  • Downward dog: Place under the feet or palms depending which area is more prone to pain to alleviate discomfort.
  • Staff pose: Sit on the wedge in order to elevate the pelvis. This will help you form the pose more easily and naturally.
  • Warrior pose: Place the wedge under the heel of your back foot to make this posture more manageable.

What Is Hyperextension?

The EVA Foam Wedge is best for minimising hyperextension, though this may be a term that more recent starters to yoga are not very familiar with. Hyperextension can happen to any joint, and refers to when it moves beyond its regular range of motion. This can damage surrounding tissues, in turn causing injury or pain. In yoga, this most commonly occurs in the knees and elbows. The wedge provides support to these areas in order to minimise risk.
