Whether you are new to yoga or a long-time lover we think you should read this!
We want to put the spotlight on the yoga block and debunk the myth that using one is just for beginners!  Keep reading to find out why...

6 reasons we believe a Cork Yoga Block is an essential every yogi needs:

Master that pose...

While yoga blocks are perfect for beginners to give them a little extra support when starting their practice, they also assist the more advanced students, whose anatomical structures makes mastering a pose without the use of props unstable or even dangerous. It takes time and practice to master those more advanced poses and without a yoga block for support you might not even be able to build up the strength or balance to get there! 

Bring the ground to you...

Our flexibility is one of those things in life that needs constant work - use it or lose it! So, whether you are winding down from a sweaty Vinyasa or slowly flowing through a Yin class, the yoga block will allow you to relax into those more restorative poses. It will support you so that you can still experience the positive effects without exerting as much effort. 

They grow with you...

With multiple heights to the rectangle shaped block, you can adjust the height and support required as you build strength and flexibility into your practice.
There will be times where you flow seamlessly without the use of a block, and there will be times when you feel the need to draw upon its support in what feels like every second pose!

4. Go deeper…

While they can bring the ground closer to you, they can also give you more height! The extra height and leverage you can gain from our cork yoga block while still maintaining a great level of stability and support can assist you to get deeper into a pose. 

5. Insert alignment reminder…

Cue an alignment you cannot ignore. For example, holding a block between your knees in chair pose is the perfect gentle reminder to keep your knees square to your hips while you sink deeper into the pose. This will engage your feet, glutes and core opposed to flopping into it with little thought or effort. You snooze you lose... or drop the block! 

6. Improve your posture with ease…

Whether you start or finish your practice with a meditation, sitting on the lowest height of a yoga block with your legs crossed out in front will effortlessly tilt your hips forward and straighten your spine with more ease. You'll have greater alignment and more comfort to sink into that juicy meditation.
