Find out how a simple block can improve your yoga practice.
Great intro to a yoga block, looking forward to using one. Thanks coach Nicole
Great need-to-know information. Thanks!
Great ideas! I just got a set for
I was looking at a yoga kit over the weekend and I did wonder what the block was for, I thought it was for standing on for balancing for some poses. Thank-you for the video! If my husband bothered to do any stretches this would help him since he can't reach the floor.
These are an awesome aid when my arthritis is acting up and I can't stretch quite as far as usual! Love mine!
Thanks,I have these blocks,very helpful when just starting,or starting over from health issue or surgerys,love them!!!!
Thanks for sharing instruction. I was wondering exactly how they were used and if I needed one.
Thank you for sharing. I was wondering what those blocks were for! Now I know!! :)
Thanks Coach Nicole. I had never heard of yoga blocks before viewing this video. Any help for my short arms and limited flexibility is encouraging.
This is very informative. Thank you.
Thank you thank you! I have always wondered what the blocks were used for. I am flexible, but can still see the benefit in the blocks. Great video!
Thanks. I've been wondering is this is something I needed to add to my home gym. It seems like it isn't 100% necessary at the moment. Thanks for the info.
I never heard of these before, but I do not do yoga. Intriguing. Maybe I'll try yoga... although I guess I don't know where to get started.
Thanks for the info. I'll give them a try.
I have two foam blocks. I didn't want to spend the extra money for cork or wood, but I was also afraid the foam would break down. I've had them over 15 years, and they are still in fine shape.
A great investment. I also have a foam wedge to tuck under my bottom to keep my pelvis aligned in seated poses.
