When you need a lift or something to lean on, you can rely on our yoga blocks! Our range is made from natural sustainable materials and high density - select from bamboo or cork blocks. Or for something different, check out the new kid on the er..block - our ‘All-in-one’ cotton block serves as a traditional yoga block as well as a mini-bolster and zafu!
Connection, length and alignment
In standing poses such as Trikonasana and Parsvakonasana, a block allows the lower hand to connect to the ground, even if it can’t quite reach. Using the block as a steady landing pad helps minimise any straining or overstretching in an effort to touch the floor, and encourages integrity with alignment and function of the pose.
Strengthen and engage
For Utkatasana, use a block to help strengthen and engage the arm and leg muscles.
Lift, open and hold
You’ll have to try it to believe it, but solid cork, bamboo or balsa wood blocks are surprisingly comfortable to rest on! In these 2 passive backbends, Supported Setu Bandha Sarvangasana (bridge) pose and Supported Matsyasana fish pose, the blocks invite a gentle blossoming and elevation at the heart centre, while simultaneously holding us so securely that it is actually possible to surrender.
Rest, soften and release
The Supta badha konasana and Stonehenge restorative yoga poses invite deep surrender and rest. Here, the blocks help to hold you in nurturing poses and close the gap between body and floor.
