Hey Areesh,

Any yoga strap will do. Name brands don't matter. I know - a yoga strap salesman would tell you different, but that's what salesmen do. You could even use an old neck tie instead of a strap. If you have work related stress, try Prasarita Padottanasana (wide legged forward fold). If you have high blood pressure (HBP), you can modify it by resting your forearms on a chair in front of you. Keep your head at heart level if you have HBP.

If we consider the word "effective" as Areesh originally posted, there is no difference between a $15 padded strap and a neck tie. But if you are considering the comfort of a premium yoga prop and you value those little creature comforts, while holding a yoga pose for minutes, then the padded straps are the way to go.

All yoga straps are most effective. A $1000 strap would be equally as effective as a neck tie.

Although I've never seen a $1000 yoga strap, I can appreciate the fact that one person sees a major value in one. This is the same for everything. One person pays $20,000 for a yoga teacher training and another pays $600. There is no right or wrong if both people feel happy with what they got.

Good point Perdy! I wouldn't have thought of it that way. At first I agreed with Ashmin, but you're right. Each of us places different monetary values on the little extras in life. I wouldn't spend more than $10 on a yoga strap, but I've spent tons on vacations.
