Yoga blocks are props that help to support and enhance the yoga practice in a number of ways. Traditionally, the block serves to extend the reach of the arm for many poses, by resting the hand on the block. The block can also be used underneath the body to help open muscles and in as many ways at the mind can imagine.
When selecting a block, there are a lot of options, in terms of dimensions, weight, materials and color. If you are thinking about investing in a block, consider all of your options to find the block that suits your practice needs.
