These blocks give a tad bit with the foam, which I appreciate, especially when using for restorative poses. I will say be careful around rough surfaces as I have scratched mine up a bit in the zipper of my to-go bag.Preferred Type of Yoga Practice VinyasaLevel of Yoga Expertise AdvancedFrequency (a week) 2-4Perspiration Level ModerateDurability Star RatingRated 4.0 on a scale of 1 to 5

Very pleased with these blocks. My only complaint is they got nicked just from my removal of the outside wrapping. Not bad though. I feel very supported using these blocks, perfect width on middle setting.Preferred Type of Yoga Practice VinyasaLevel of Yoga Expertise IntermediateFrequency (a week) 2-4Perspiration Level ModerateDurability Star RatingRated 4.0 on a scale of 1 to 5
