Why I Love My Yoga Block

Why I Love My Yoga Block


I love my Yoga Blocks, they are a great part of my practice. In most situations were I to choose a single prop it would be my block. Yoga Blocks are pushed in the yoga asana market as an item that helps you to hold a pose or make poses easier as you progress. While this is true and I do use it to “extend the pose” there is more...Yoga Blocks:


  • Helps in the creation of good body alignment
  • Used as a booster in seated positions (Foam or Cork Block)
  • Can be used to release tight muscles
  • Balances out disproportionate bodies (example: (For Me) short legs, long body)
  • Used as a support for muscle weakness. This can help you work those muscles, and strengthen them with support.
  • Used to navigate a deeper stretch! For me especially in seated forward bend or seated cross-legged forward bend.
  • And certainly used to stabilize the body in certain poses.


There are many more uses of a Yoga Block. For a lightweight wood, cork or foam block, it is a good and useful piece of equipment that I could not do without. The Yoga block is beneficial for both beginners and seasoned Yogi and Yogini's alike. The Yama Yoga Store has all of your essential blocks, my favorite block is the cork block, it is lightweight and versatile!
