The Buttafly is a unique aid to be used in supine lying to restore good postural alignment or a sitting aid for effortless cross legged sitting.
Originally designed by a physiotherapist as a meditation seat and yoga block, the ability for it to facilitate a curative release of the spine was a happy accident – and one that has been helping people with all manner of back and pelvic problems for nearly 5 years.
It comes recommended by physiotherapists and osteopaths as a valuable tool for use at home to help break the cycle of poor posture, poor breathing, altered tone of the pelvic floor tone, and pelvic pain.
Made of EVA foam – the Buttafly is lightweight, washable and durable.
A slumped (forward) posture can increase downward pressure on the pelvic floor. This can impact on symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction including prolapse, bladder or bowel incontinence or pelvic pain.
Correct posture improves one’s ability to correctly perform pelvic floor exercises. Your strengthening exercises will be most effective and successful with the correct spinal alignment.
Correct posture promotes deep abdominal muscle activity. Your deep abdominal muscles also play a role in supporting your pelvic organs and promoting bladder and bowel control.
Correct posture enhances diaphragmatic breathing. Diaphragmatic breathing exercises can help to promote the ideal breathing pattern that enhances pelvic floor muscle activity, and making this vital group of muscles more responsive in daily life.
As a seat, the Buttafly offers the perfect support for effortless cross-legged sitting on the floor.
It complements the shape of the body and supports the pelvis in the right way, providing the ideal foundation for correct posture of the spine.
The indent at the back avoids all pressure upon the base of the spine so that the whole length of the backbone feels light and free.
It can also be used for short periods on a chair for the purpose of improving seated posture and off-loading the tailbone.
Please note, the Buttafly is not designed for all-day use at a desk.
The Buttafly is the same height as a regular rectangular Yoga block – 5cms high at the front edge. The upper surface is gently cushioned for greater comfort. This is the correct aid for lying.
Its gentle curves and the wedge shape also make it a supremely comfortable and versatile prop for restorative postures.
