Yoga Rocks were invented with optimal movement in mind! 

We look to guide you to a place of confidence and strength in your body, knowing it is possible. 

After years of teaching yoga, our founder, Rose Pelosi, wanted to create a functional way to articulate hand to mat activation, an alignment process that is often times left behind. 

With our hands being part our foundation in every hand to mat pose, this specific articulation can have a profound impact on the rest of the body.

Overall, our goal is not only to bring more awareness to your practice and the way you move, but to create a space where that practice can grow and evolve effectively every time you hit the mat.

You are doing the work, you deserve to progress, and pain free!


 Move better, feel better!


ANATOMY + FUNCTIONALITY: It's not just WHERE you place you hands, its HOW

The human hand is comprised of the fingers, palm, and wrist. These all work together to provide optimal support and integration with the forearm and beyond, as it's all connected! 

It is tempting to rely on the hinge of the wrist, placing the majority of our body weight into the heels of the hands in order to stay steady. Rather than placing our weight here passively, creating excess wrist pressure, we want to firm or heavy our weight into the inner hand (pointer finger and thumb). This area connects us to the larger muscles of the hand, supporting the structure of the wrist with connection to the forearm. Yoga Rocks give us an easy way to consistently support our natural structure in this way. 

With connection and awareness for how we move and use the smaller parts of ourselves, we increase strength, avoid injury, and improve overall alignment.

Heres to longevity in our practice!

The Hand to Mat Connection Explained

Let's Rock!

When practicing yoga, our tendency is to place the majority of our body weight on the heels of the hands. This puts pressure on the wrist joint and causes muscular disconnect.

Squeezing the Yoga Rock between your pointer finger and thumb, you can activate the hand and instantly feel an offering to lift and lighten in the heel of the palm.

As they guide you to firm into the inner hand, you can then work to more easily firm into the base of each knuckle, connecting the entire hand to the mat.  

This activation allows you to utilize the muscles of the hands and forearms, supporting the wrists as well as supportive overall structure.

Forearm activation requires hand activation.

*We suggest a bit of space between the crook of your hand and the Yoga Rock itself for optimal placement, and to insure you are activating rather than using the Yoga Rocks to passively hold your body weight.

Keep in mind your relationship with your Yoga Rocks will grow over time as they encourage awareness for how you move and build strength. 

Give yourself time to adjust to new muscles working in new ways. Yoga Rocks will call on your effort, but reward you with safe alignment and continuous, positive progression in your practice.


Beginner or pro, Yoga Rocks offer a way to activate strength and alignment, all while reaping the maximum benefits of the practice!
