The More Sustainable Yoga Block
If you’ve used a yoga block before, you’d know that they are commonly used from a foam material. However, cork yoga blocks are becoming the norm thanks to their more sustainable nature and better quality during use. They are firmer, slightly heavier, and much more sturdy. Even better, cork is a renewable, sustainable material that requires no chemicals during production. Keep yourself and the planet more healthy by using a cork yoga block during your routines.
Using a yoga cork block during your yoga poses and routines can provide helpful support and stability. It can help you deepen your stretches safely and prevent injury. Have an easier time establishing the correct alignment by using a yoga block. For those with physical limitations or who are just starting with yoga, using a cork block can be a tremendous help by preventing injury, extending your reach, and allowing you to be more aware of your muscles.
Suggested poses to use with cork yoga blocks:
- Deep squat
- Hero’s pose
- Heart opener
- Warrior 3
- Extended side angle
- Upward facing dog
- And many, many more possibilities!
