When I got my strap, I immediately fell in love with its beauty. The bamboo strap is so ridiculously soft! I practiced with it relentlessly for days (so much I had to throw it in the wash, went perfectly following their instructions on the box).
While I received other straps at the same time for review I found that I was disappointed with the strength of my Organic Bamboo Infinity Strap. I had the intentions of it helping me mostly with arm balances and noticed it felt like no support at all.
Infinity Strap reached out to me after the review to tell me, “Um, you’re doing it wrong” (just in a nicer more professional manner). They gave me a bunch of information on their straps and recommended that an Original Cotton strap would be better for my intentions. The Bamboo strap was suited more for flexiblity and stretching.
As I read the email I had a “duh” moment. I do LOVE my Bamboo Strap, I’ve found it is the strap I grab most. It has enhanced all my reaching poses from Dancer’s to King Pigeon and it has done an amazing job of opening up my tough shoulders, deepening my bends and folds and helping reach my binds.
Then I tried their cotton strap. I fell in love with Infinity Strap all over again. It is absolutely perfect for arm balances and has helped me progress my press up into a handstand quickly and significantly. The Cotton Strap is so stiff and sturdy, almost the complete opposite of my Bamboo Strap. It is my go to for any tough binds, balances or form correction.
There’s more: I never realized how useful the signature infinity shape was. Using simple loop shapes makes it difficult to pull a limb closer when stretching. Having that stitched center gives you a base for your hands, essentially being two different band sizes in one. I have an endless imagination for the possibilities of these straps during the growth of my practice.
These two straps are unbeatable. The longer you have them the more amazing things you realize about them. They’re pretty genius. The only wish I have is that I could have two of each! I love them so much!
