Why Use Yoga Blocks?

Blocks can be really useful in the practice for both the beginner and seasoned yogi. For beginners, yoga blocks can be used when the flexibility isn't quite there yet


How yoga blocks help your yoga practice?

  • Support range of motion, thereby shortening the distance between you and the floor (“bringing the floor closer to you”)

  • Assist in establishing correct alignment

  • Help make yoga accessible to beginners and to those experiencing injury or other physical limitations

  • Bring awareness to properly engage and support muscles in a specific pose

  • Can be placed at the low, medium and high positions to accommodate more or less support

Consider even a simple yoga pose like a cross-legged sitting position. By placing a cork block below your seat, you’re instantly alleviating pressure from the lower back and opening up through the chest, both of which are keys to great posture. More complicated poses, including ones that involve balancing, can benefit from blocks placed beneath one or both hands to increase stability, allowing yogis to focus on other aspects of the pose, like alignment and, most importantly, the breath.


Yoga blocks or bricks are beneficial because they compensate for the lack of flexibility in a yoga-goer; however, choosing the ideal yoga block can be complicated. Nowadays, there are several types of blocks available to suit all people’s needs and you need to take considerations into account when purchasing a blocks.
