Yoga Blocks

Posted on: May 18th, 2010 by

yoga propsNo yoga practitioner’s collection of yoga supplies would be complete without at least one size of varied size yoga blocks.  Yoga blocks typically come in about 4 different materials: foam, cork, natural bamboo, and wood.   Yoga blocks will assist you in extending your poses for proper posture.  You can use them one at a time, or if necessary, stack them—whatever your degree of flexibility calls for.

Foam yoga blocks are ultra lightweight, are very stable, and quite affordable.  In fact, it’s probably best if you have a few of them in your quiver.  Why not give them as birthday or holiday gifts to friends and companions to keep in their yoga mat bags, along with other, sundry, yoga meditation items.

Yoga Balls and Accessories

yoga accessoriesAlong with shopping for quality yoga mats, adding yoga balls to your collection of yoga accessories can make a nice gift to your self for your better well being.   If you’re serious about your yoga, yoga balls are a preferable choice to personal dumbbells, which aren’t as well suited to holding in various yoga poses.  The attractive spheres come in 3 different pastel colors that are in harmony with the subdued mindset that accompanies yoga.

Other accessories you might want to pick up are yoga meditation cushions, stretch straps, yoga paws, and natural cork yoga blocks; blocks also come in foam, wood, or bamboo, for whichever preference.  The natural wood or bamboo blocks should appeal to the ecologically minded individual, as should the EVA foam versions.  Most offered yoga mats are made of either natural fibers or eco-friendly recycled materials.
