What are cork yoga blocks

A cork yoga block is a kind of yoga prop – a yoga block made of natural cork and is extremely helpful for beginners and advanced yogis alike. A yoga block is also known as yoga brick as it is shaped like a brick and provides support and alignment mainly in standing asanas.

When are cork yoga blocks used

Cork Yoga blocks come to great use in studios offering teacher training courses (TTC) as it helps beginners achieve stability and alignment in postures that need advanced flexibility and strength. Even advanced practitioners find blocks useful to explore asana anatomy or use them for deep relaxation. 

Blocks are a must-have prop for Yoga sessions and retreat done with props, such as Iyengar Yoga, Yin Yoga, etc. If you practice at home and follow online yoga tutorials, you will certainly benefit from using blocks to improve balance and deepen the stretch. 

Cork blocks are used to help you find your balance in standing asana, such as a Trikonasana or Parsvakonasana. Initially, it is challenging to extend sideways and avoid folding forward while trying to reach the floor with one hand. Resting your hand on the block is a great way to find stability, avoid over-straining, stay calm and breathe and hold the posture for long.   

Placing them between the legs or holding a block in your hand can help you understand the internal and external rotation of muscles. Thus teachers find this very useful in their classes as it helps the student understand muscle movement and practice with more awareness.  

Blocks are also used to deepen stretches, like in Parivrtta Trikonasana where a tight hamstring may not allow you to lift, twist and lengthen. They are also used to relax and facilitate deep breathing in restorative yoga where it can be used to support your back. It is also used to increase comfort and improve alignment in seated postures. 

Considering you can adjust the height of the block by placing it horizontally or vertically, there are numerous ways in which you can use the blocks. They make arm balances a lot more fun, can help you explore advanced asanas and lifts make it easier for you to understand the pose alignment and explore the posture accordingly.
