An ergonomic seat for yoga, meditation and realigning your spine
Transform your posture and realign your spine with the Buttafly
Designed by physiotherapist and yoga teacher TillyLou James, the Buttafly was conceived in her quest to find a more comfortable alternative to the regular rectangular Yoga block for sitting cross-legged on the floor.
Since its launch 3 years ago, it is now the yoga block and meditation seat of choice for teachers and practitioners passionate about the benefits of good posture for their overall health and well-being – as well as to help avoid back pain.
The Buttafly also works well as a versatile prop for yoga, Pilates and similar practices and has the advantage of being lightweight, portable and durable.
For back care the Buttafly provides a simple and unique tool for self-care and can be used for the management of simple back pain.
The Buttafly comes in 3 models
The Standard Buttafly is the classic Buttafly shape with a gently sloping upper surface to support the pelvis in an ideal position for good posture in the cross-legged sitting position.
It is 5 cms high at the front edge – the same height as a regular rectangular yoga block.
As a rule of thumb if you can touch your toes in a forward bend, you will likely find this model just right for sitting.
This model can also be used for chair yoga to facilitate good postural alignment.
As a yoga block for restorative and Yin Yoga, this is the most versatile model.
The Tall Buttafly is the classic Buttafly shape with a gently sloping upper surface to support the pelvis in an ideal position for good posture in the cross-legged sitting position.
It is 10 cms high at the front edge – the same height as two regular rectangular yoga blocks stacked together.
As a rule of thumb if your hands reach your mid shins in a forward bend, you will likely find this model just right for your yoga and meditation.
The Flat Buttafly is for use as a stacker or riser. It has a flat upper surface and is more firm than the other models.
It can be used together with either the Standard or Tall Buttafly.
If you can reach your knees, you will likely require a Tall+Flat Buttafly to sit comfortably in the cross-legged position on the floor.
Some of our least-flexible customers like to use a Tall + 2 Flat Buttaflys – if any higher than this is required, we recommend using a seat with a Standard Buttafly.
The Buttafly can be used for…
