#boldandbigger: Day 103 Mama Kuka YogaSphere™Giveaway

Posted on 13th April, by in Yoga. 11 Comments


Hey Yogis. Here it is day 103 and I just realized I have not done a single giveaway yet in 2014!  I am here right now to rectify this inadequacy on my blog. I am spinning right round:  coming full circle to the four giveaways I did in December of 2013 with one for 2014.



Enter The YogaSphere™ from Mama Kuka.  This ingenious system of mini yoga strap spheres has come to my rescue as a yoga teacher who is eternally on the go.  I teach in studios and gyms and all sorts of locations.  Many of these have no yoga props what so ever.  Now my local yogis know I am crazy for props, straps in particular are huge in my teaching.  Yoga straps, as I have been known to say, are the great equalizer.  They make short arms and long torsos feel the same as long arms and short torsos.  Long legs suddenly do not seem so far away when you have a strap to help you reach them.


What is brilliant about The YogaSphere™ is that in a small bag you have a strap, or combination of straps for virtually any pose!  So that if I want to demonstrate a pose in a location where there are no straps, I have this light, easy to carry collection at the ready.  My students have also tried the YogaSpheres™ and loved the ease of the circular design.  They are ingenious, light to carry and super functional.  What more could you want from a prop?


The lovely ladies at Mama Kuka have given me two sets of YogaSphere™ straps to give away to my readers.  Lucky you, they are a terrific addition to your prop collection!  Here is the skinny on the giveaway:

 What:  Two readers will be selected to each win a set of YogaSpheres™.  This giveaway is limited to the USA.


How: In order to be entered you must be from the USA, and you must do the following:

1.) Comment below with your favorite pose to use a strap.

2.) Like Flying Yogini and Mama Kuka on Facebook.

3.) For an extra entry share this contest on Twitter be sure to tag Flying Yogini and Mama Kuka



When: This giveaway runs from 4/14/14 until 4/24/14 at 6:00 a.m. EST.  The winners will be drawn at random and announced here, on Facebook and on Twitter.


Thanks so much to Mama Kuka for the connection and for the super functional YogaSphere™ set.  As someone who never met a yoga prop I did not like, I can say I LOVE these.

    If I won the YogaSphere strap, I would use it to help me with the side angle pose

  2. Sarah K says:

    I love straps in ALL forward folds. I have super sweaty hands. :-)

  3. Debbie says:

    love straps to help with back bending with many poses!
    what useful easy tools!

    as a cyclist, i have a really hard time getting into arhda baddha padangusthasana without forcing my hip flexors. i think this would be a great tool to help me into the inversion more comfortably :)

  5. gayle says:

    I think it would help me sink deeper in my forward folds.

  6. Matt Brugman says:

    For me it’s supta hasta padangustasana, reclining big toe hold. Being a typical guy with tight hamstrings and hips, I can’t even get close without a strap!

  7. Beth says:

    Love to use the strap during extended hand big toe pose. It helps keep the spine elongate while straightening the leg!

  8. Kia says:

    Gomukasana is a challenge for me

  9. Jennifer (robbins) A. says:

    I just started yoga, so I do not know the different poses’ names. But, I have a DVD, and they use straps during the demonstrations, and I don’t have one yet! So, it would be Amazing to win one! :D
