Product as described. Fabric is a sensory delight.
As a yoga teacher, if I take my bolster for a student to try they always want one for themselves too! Almost all of my private students now have Slow Mo bolsters, they are such a beautiful design everybody falls in love with them.
Features that are really handy that you might not think of are:
The handle makes it really easy to carry and cart around.
They are washable! (My puppy actually weed on my bolster and I was mortified- but then so grateful I could just slip the cover off and wash it!) This feature is so useful!
The sustainability factor is also the main reason I love these- it’s so refreshing to have an eco friendly option so that our yoga practice can leave a soft footprint on the earth.
Thank you for creating such a beautiful addition to my practice and the practice of my students!
I know it’s not always about how things look, but I feel a bit posh having my eye pillow and bolster match! Haha. More importantly it’s a really nice weight and I also love that it’s sustainable and the way the fabric is sourced makes for some very special ‘almost one of a kind’ designs. I’m so grateful for an eco conscious range- they make beautiful gifts as well!
I love the body pillow! It’s a delicious treat during savasana and adds reassuring weight during yin and restorative poses too. I also use it around my shoulder if I’m working at my computer (it’s super snug especially in winter!) and it’s also my favourite prop for pranayama because I often find that sitting on a booster or block is a bit too high… so I fold this in half and make a little dint for my bum to fit in - it’s a really nice support if I’m sitting on the ground for a while.
I adore my natural linen bolster , I did loads of research before landing on this bolster and from all aspects it was well worth it , it looks beautiful so is on display in my lounge , is perfect in terms of firmness and length , has been produced ethically & locally and was hand delivered by Courtney !!
I love the fact that I can support a local small business .
I use it every day without fail , and will be recommending to all my yoga tribe .
I struggle a lot with eye pillows because I have a little nose that's very sensitive to weights being on it. I had a chat with Courtney about this and she was phenomenal and we worked out the best solution. I've recently taken it to hospital after the birth of my second and I'm convinced it was the only reason I slept along with the only reason I managed to sleep with my pregnancy insomnia. It's beautiful to meditate with as well and nice in warmer weather if you chill it for a little bit too. Definitely a great little purchase!
I was worried at first that I wouldn't use it enough and nervous about justifying the cost to my partner. It is now one of the most used things in the lounge, it was amazing during pregnancy to help with optimal positioning, my toddler loves it and my partner has also been busted using it.
I love how the hulls feel when I use it, I love how well it washes up and even if you need to empty it out and wash the inner (I have a toilet training toddler), it's easy enough to refill if you have a bucket big enough to accommodate for the husks. We love our bolster!
Great purchase, very happy with product advertised versus received, fast delivery, quality is high.
Bolster feels the perfect size for me (my height 171cm). This bolster is beautifully made, the fabric feels strong, the density is high and firm but with the right amount of “give” even after a year of use several times a week. In addition to my normal yin/ yoga stretches I also rely on it for helping me get through a body pain condition as well as support for post shoulder surgery.
Only wish I had got the eye pillow combo.
Beautifully and ethically made. Holds it shape very well over time. The perfect amount of support and give to it. Highly recommend, great investment - I can’t stretch without it!
I am so happy I waited to buy a second bolster (my first, I bought over 10 years ago). When I saw this corduroy, up-cycled, locally made one, I invested and it was the best money I’ve spent on yoga props in a long time. Also couldn’t resist to get the cute matching eye pillow. An absolute dream to practice on. Thank you!
I love my eye pillow, and only wish I had of found slow mo co earlier (when I was first opening my studio). I love the fact that the covers can be removed and washed! Currently waiting for my old bolster a zafu to see it’s last days, so I can upgrade to the whole slowmoco collection
I received this along with the scented eye pillow for Christmas and use it almost every night! The weight helps to ground me before bed, the scent - cooling and calming. I’ve also found during this vata season it really helpful to heat the insert before placing on the belly when vata is in excess. Beautiful fabrics, excellent quality !
Product does the job as intended. Order was processed in a timely manner.I am happy with the service. Thank You for the card, a nice personal touch.
I love my new yoga set. It is so stylish that I happily display it in my living room and have been using it to rest on when I watch tv. The only problem is my kids keep borrowing it, I walked in on my 17 year old using the full set for a relax after a study session, it’s a winner!
Great floor cushion! Arrived quickly and exactly as described. I’ve filled mine out with a little more stuffing as it being used regularly but love the use of linen and overall design. Many thanks!

"These are no ordinary bolsters, they are bolsters hand made with consciousness, care and love in abundance. Courtney has put so much thought into ethically made products to make sure they are as kind as they can be to not only us, but also for the environment." - Moni Mudge, Tidal Yoga
"What we love about the bolsters and eye pillows from The Slow Mo Co is that they have high integrity sewn into each seam. The elements that make up these stylish and practical yoga props, from the fabrics to the zips and everything in between are chosen with love and care. The ethical and environmental footprint is the small while the positive impact, both from the way the props look and the way they feel, are unbeatable. Our students love them and they continue to be a huge success." - Bryony Lancaster, Egg of the Universe
"I have been completely blown away by the quality and feel of these bolsters. The comfort has meant I've meditated and practiced yoga more than ever before and my clients absolutely love them as well. As soon as I rest on the bolster I truly do feel held and it feels like a much needed exhale. Thank you for creating such a beautiful product. I would recommend these to anyone and everyone." - Sarah Coleman, Atticii
