  • Great ideas! I just got a set for - 5/12/2016 8:51:19 PM
  • 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. - 5/12/2016 2:41:18 PM

  • 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. - 3/10/2015 4:30:56 PM

  • 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! - 10/20/2014 2:09:44 PM
  • 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. - 8/15/2014 12:51:43 PM
  • 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. - 5/12/2014 9:07:32 AM
  • Thanks for the info. I'll give them a try. - 5/9/2014 6:40:53 AM
  • 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. - 3/15/2014 1:11:56 PM
  • I have fairly short arms even for my 5 foot tall frame, the yoga block helps me achieve the intended stretch in some poses by giving me that extra little boost, when I was shopping for my yoga mat I only bought one, but I plan to go back and get another, also a band.
