Stable and light - your yoga block
A famous verse from Patanjali's Yogasutra says that an asana should be "sthira-sukha", meaning "stable and light". It's the same with yoga blocks! Your yoga block should of course be able to withstand everything you plan to do with it in the asanas, but at the same time it should be as light as possible so that you can transport it without a lot of ballast (when you take it to a yoga class, for example) and also so that it is safe to use. Both criteria are absolutely guaranteed by the materials used for our yoga blocks. Experience lightness and stability in the asanas - with your light and stable yoga block!
Your yoga block has a good grip
Grip is also an important criterion for a yoga block, because of course you don't want your hands to slip off the block. even if they are wet. The materials of our yoga blocks not only feel comfortable, but also offer you enough grip.
Why a yoga block at all?
What can you actually do with a yoga block? What are the benefits of this yoga aid? With a yoga block you can make asanas more challenging, for example by increasing the intensity of a stretch, or you can make them easier. You can either decrease or increase the distance between the poses, making them less challenging or more challenging depending on the posture. For example, if your hands do not reach the floor but you need to support yourself with them, the yoga block can be used as a bridge. The yoga block can also be used to press against it with both hands, thighs or knees, creating a pressure towards the midline that stabilises the posture.
Yoga blocks are particularly common in Iyengar yoga, but they can also be extremely useful in other styles and are widely used. Yoga blocks are usually purchased in pairs, as two blocks are needed for a variety of different applications. Sometimes, however, a single yoga block is sufficient (cf. for example the example above, in which both thighs or knees press against a block). Most yoga teachers can give you a variety of examples of how the yoga block can be used and can show you how to use the yoga block for your individual needs. The yoga block can help you to refine yoga postures or to approach asanas step by step that you were previously unable to do or that seemed difficult to you

Your extra: the large yoga block
The yogiblock big is just like the basic yoga block a light but very stable hard foam block. The difference lies in the size: the yogiblock big comes with larger dimensions. This yoga block can also be ordered in a discounted double pack.
Your super block: the yoga block in king-size format
The yoga block yogiblock super size lives up to its name. If you need a really big yoga block for your purposes, this model is on the spot.
Your special one: the yoga block with the OM
The tried and tested hard foam block is also available with a special design: the yogiblock big OM variant corresponds exactly to the yogiblock big in terms of dimensions, but is printed with the OM.
Your most beautiful: the flowery yoga block
Another design variation of the yoga block yogiblock big is the beautiful yogiblock big Indian Flower with floral print. The gold-coloured pattern looks simply wonderful on the purple background.
Your unusual one: the yoga block with the wave
The unusual shape of the yogiblock wave is not just a crazy idea, it is really clever: Ergonomically adapted to the natural curves of the body, this yogablock is particularly comfortable to use.
Your friend for "special operations": the oval yoga block
The yogiblock eggis perfectly suited for postures such as the fish (matsyasana) with its egg shape.
Slim but mighty: the flat yoga block

Whenever only small elevations are needed, this thin but flat yoga block can be used well. And last but not least, it can also be used as a cold-insulating seat pad.
