There’s a whole world of possibilities to consider – no matter what your ability level
It’s easy to take a look at the market and think all yoga blocks are the same. But there are a number of crucial differences that should be considered, whether you are a seasoned yogi or a beginner. Firstly, the material the blocks are made out of makes a big difference; cork models are great for balancing as they are generally harder and sturdier, while foam blocks tend to have a greater level of “squish”, making them better for restorative classes and back bends.
There’s also size and weight to consider. If you only want to buy one block, you need to make sure it is tall enough to reach. A foam block, meanwhile, will be lighter (they generally weigh between 200g and 400g) and are therefore perfect to slide into your handbag or rucksack if you’re planning to pop to a class after work.
