The yoga block, sometimes also called a yoga brick, is an accessory used in your yoga practice to, among other functions, relieve pressure on your joints.
It usually serves as a base for your hands, feet and torso in certain postures, and helps you to maintain stability and perform asanas in a way that is right for your body.
As this yoga block is made of pure natural cork, its contact with the skin is pleasant, soft and warm and it stays firmly in place.

Cork bricks are particularly suitable for dynamic yoga. They are harder and heavier than foam bricks and you may prefer them for stability.
In yoga practice, body placement is important to optimise the benefits of the postures. Yoga blocks are designed to extend your body, allowing more comfort and a better positioning of your body.
These blocks will help you in multiple asanas, whether to improve your balance and flexibility, or to relieve the pressure from a part of your body. Whether you are new to yoga or very experienced, they will allow you to practice the postures in the depth that is precisely appropriate for your own body. In Yin and Restorative yoga as well as in Hatha or Iyengar yoga, they are very useful props, allowing you to progress at your own pace while always listening to your body. Everyone will benefit, a yoga brick is an investment for life.
For example, in Ardha Chandrasana (Half Moon), a block placed at the correct height under your hand on the floor will allow you to find your best alignment in complete stability. In Anjaneyasana (Low Lunge) or Hanumanasana (Monkey Pose), a brick in each hand or supporting your pelvis will allow you to work on your flexibility safely.
Our yoga block is also very useful in meditation. Placed under the buttocks, it stabilises your sitting, helps to anchor and keeps your back straight with a good alignment from the hips to the top of the head. The circulation of energy will be optimized, your body will be relaxed and you will be more attentive to the present moment, thus to your meditation.
Its weight makes it a reliable and very stable accessory and allows us to get to know each posture at our own pace, according to our body and our mood of the day.
as the cherry on the cake, its message “Love is the Key” inspires well-being and serenity during our asanas.
