Yoga blocks are a great tool to help you improve flexibility and to help you get into difficult positions where you need a bit of stability. Yoga blocks are useful for anyone who practices whether you are a beginner or an advanced Yogi.
When choosing a yoga block there is a lot to consider from the goals you want to achieve, the style of block and the weight.
Goals: if you have a specific pose in mind that you want to achieve than a block can help you extend your reach until your flexibility has improved.
Style of block: Yoga blocks can come in many different styles. Cork yoga blocks are the most popular but you can get foam blocks or recycled eco-friendly ones. It is a good idea to try them out before you buy so you know what is your preferred choice. Cork blocks are more sturdy than foam blocks and offer a more stable surface while foam blocks tend to be more malleable so they can be comfier on your hands.
Weight: if you travel to a yoga studio you may want to consider how heavy your yoga block is. You want something that is easy to travel with. Foam blocks are great for this as they tend to be lightweight making them really portable.
