I like these blocks. Better than the foam ones for me. Sturdy and just enough height.Preferred Type of Yoga Practice Vinyasa, OtherLevel of Yoga Expertise AdvancedFrequency (a week) 5-7Perspiration Level ModerateDurability Star RatingRated 5.0 on a scale of 1 to 5
- Lingxiao T.Verified BuyerRated 5 out of 5 stars2 weeks agoReviewingGaiam Cork Yoga Block 3 InchSturdy and dense
I got these initially to do some squat with lifted heels since my usual yoga blocks are 4” and a bit too high for me. I have tried them during yoga as well. Compared to the foam version from Gaiam, these are much sturdier and probably more eco-friendly. However, they are a tad heavier with no giving. To support the back and head during resting poses or as a wedge in between thighs for better alignment, I still prefer the foam kind. Plus in my case, they’re 1” higher/thicker, which I prefer. For the most part, they’re interchangeable IMO.Preferred Type of Yoga Practice Vinyasa, Yin (Restorative), Meditation, OtherLevel of Yoga Expertise IntermediateFrequency (a week) 2-4Perspiration Level ModerateDurability Star RatingRated 5.0 on a scale of 1 to 5
