Reviews of Gaiam Yoga Block
Review 1: which was an unexpected and great surprise! Most of the time
This is a much heavier block than most foam blocks, which was an unexpected and great surprise! Most of the time, I feel more unstable/unsafe using light foam blocks, but heavy wood blocks are cumbersome to carry around. Looks like with this block, I’ve found a happy medium. The decoration on the side is also beautiful. I constantly have people in group classes asking me where I got this.
Review 2: Absolute Best Value For Your Money
Gaiam does it again! They create such good products; I have two mats from Gaiam, and when I started incorporating blocks into my practice at the studio, I looked for blocks that I could use at home as well. I shopped around (as most people do), and still decided to go with these because of their excellent design and build.
They’re the right size for anyone to use, they’re very sturdy, and the green color is joyful to me. I highly suggest, if you’re looking to start a yoga practice, or your needs have changed, that you get the blocks by Gaiam. I shop around, but I always come back to them because they make the best stuff, and these blocks are no exception.
Was there life before cork yoga blocks??? One of my favorite purchases. I don’t need blocks for aid with poses so much, as I’m already pretty flexible – I use them mainly for restorative poses (for example supported Bridge) so the solid cork is awesome and feels much better than the spongy blocks.
When i use it in a pose to open up more or to work on form, the solid cork block gives me much more stability. It’s pretty heavy too so you get the extra workout carrying it around (just kidding! lol). I did drop it in class once though and the thud was pretty loud – definitely solidly made.
