Back in December, 2011, I was awarded Entrepreneur of the Month in Asheville, NC. Here is a local radio spot they aired about it. I thought it was kinda cool….

I am a pediatric physical therapist and I have been using three minute eggs for several months to help the children learn about their bodies, support their posture, and be playful at the same time. The children love them. We continue to find wonderful ways to use them.

I love the 3 minute eggs, they have an endless amount of uses and I find them to be very valuable not only in my own home practice, I like to use them for arm balances, but for many of my students who are dealing with issues like arthritis, carpel tunnel and other aches and pains in general. I love the way they can move through a group practice without having to adjust and readjust the bricks. Have not used Silver Linings yet, but they sound great!

I teach yoga in Madrid, Spain, and I first learnt about the 3 minute egg through an ad in Yoga Journal magazine. I found the idea so clean, and so simple that it seemed almost brilliant to me. I have some students with problems in their wrists that are finally practicing arm balances, thanks to the eggs. Other students love them for opening up their tight backs, they feel great. Definitely, a yoga prop that’s worth a try. Hard to believe nobody thought of it until now! (more…)
I love the Three Minute Egg®! You introduced them to me when I was in LA for the Yoga Therapy Symposium in 2009.
I love them for me because they are wonderful to open up my spine in bed or on a yoga mat. I lay over them top of spine to bottom with the highest part of the egg at the thoracic spine and they help me fall off to sleep and also to wake up in the morning. Sounds contradictory I know but it’s true.
If I’m feeling overwhelmed and emotional (more…)
I immediately fell in love with the Eggs when I received them last Wednesday. Your Three Minute Eggs are well made and well designed. The shape, texture and weight of each Egg invites the body to trust its surface!
I am an Occupational Therapist in private practice in San Francisco. I am a yoga student, but not a yoga teacher. I work with young children, school age children, adolescents, and young adults. My clients usually present with developmental, motor, attention and often learning disorders. The severity of their challenges range from mildly evident to very significant and in many cases they possess good to gifted intelligence. I have also followed several autistic students from preschool to young adulthood.
I use yoga as a “therapeutic modality” in my work together with other therapeutic tools as I address (more…)
Blocks have been by far my favorite Yoga prop. I find there’s nothing better to use for removing blockages, for needed support, for propping up body parts in restorative poses. Well, ordinary blocks may need to be stacked aside now that I’ve discovered the 3-Minute Egg.
Fortunately, these are eggs that are vegan-friendly, so named for their oblong shape. They’re fashioned from the same foam material as standard blocks, but their rounded shape gives them the perfect curve for supporting the spine, the neck or the low back in any of the restorative asana interludes that make it possible for me to edit this magazine for hours on end hunched over a computer screen. The rounded edges of the eggs also make them a nice hand-hold for lunges and jump-backs in held poses and vinayasa sequences.
The company’s owner and inventor Jason Scholder has adapted them for use in his own practice and he’s a passionate advocate for their use. He’s not the only one. The other day, I had to scavenge my set from my housemate’s bedrooms, where they had decided to enlist the eggs for their own restorative practices. Find Scholder and the three-minute eggs in the Vendor Village at Bhakti Fest, September 9 -12, or online: threeminuteegg.com.

I feel a combination of gratitude and astonishment when people review the Three Minute Egg® and have this many positive things to say. I of course think it’s a great product, but I’m supposed to feel that way. I invented it! When other people take the time to share their thoughts and recommendations, all I can say is, “Thank you.” So today I am saying a belated ‘Thank you’ to Yoga Deals for doing such a nice write-up on my product. If you have anything you’d like to add, please do! And please share this with your yoga community. I really appreciate it!
the three minute egg is the new block on the mat, but what’s with the name? according to the founder and ‘recovering’ furniture maker, jason (aka creative dude with a bad back), the name was hatched (i couldn’t resist) because of the “great benefits [that] can come from a practice where one holds challenging poses for up to 3 minutes & restorative poses for at least 3 or more.” jason also mentioned, that we should be on the lookout for… (more…)
Every once in a while, someone creates a yoga product that makes so much sense, it’s hard to believe it wasn’t always around. This is most certainly the case with the Three Minute Egg®.
Like most skeptics, when I first saw the Three Minute Egg®, I didn’t imagine it would have so much to offer — or at least not so much to offer me. It didn’t take long to convinc and convert me. There is a bit of a learning curve associated with using the Egg, but the time spent is well worth the benefits gained. Jason Scholder (owner/inventor of the Three Minute Egg) brought two yoga instructors with him to the most recent New York Yoga and Raw Food Expo. The three of them spent three days offering private yoga instruction as well as three free workshops. I spent a solid half hour being led through a sequence of blissful supportive postures, and kept looking for excuses to wander back by their booth.
