yoga blocks

Yoga blocks are blocks used to aid in the performance of a variety of poses. They are used during yoga to provide stability and support for proper alignment. Yoga blocks can be used under hands, feet or seat to deepen stretches safely and achieve proper alignment.

Yoga blocks are usually made of foam. However, some blocks are made of wood. They are also called yoga bricks.

Yoga blocks are great for beginners with limited flexibility

A yoga block in poses like forward folds will help beginners can find better alignment when they have not developed a great range of flexibility. The block also provides a foundation for pelvis tilts and deep breathing.

Strength training

Yoga blocks can also be used for general strength exercises. One example is to put a yoga block in between your legs or holding one in your hands while doing a specific pose.

Yogis with tight or problem wrists can use the wedge to alleviate overstretching or pressure on the joints in poses such as downward facing dog or upward bow.

Wedges are usually made out of foam. However, wedges can be made out of other materials such as wood.
