How to use a Yoga Block

Have you ever wondered how to use a yoga block/brick in your practice? You aren't alone! Here is a video on how to use your prop in class or in your home practice!

Using blocks in a yoga practice can provide several benefits, including:

  1. Increased Flexibility: Blocks can be used to modify poses and make them more accessible, which can help you to gradually increase your flexibility over time.

  2. Improved Alignment: Blocks can help you to maintain proper alignment in poses by providing support and preventing overstretching or injury.

  3. Deeper Stretching: Blocks can be used to deepen stretches by providing an elevated surface to rest on, allowing you to go deeper into the pose.

  4. Increased Strength: Holding poses with the support of a block can help to build strength in the muscles that are being used.

  5. Reduced Stress: Using a block can help to release tension in the body, making your practice more relaxing and reducing stress.

  6. Increased Confidence: Blocks can help to build confidence in your practice by providing a sense of stability and support, especially when attempting new or challenging poses.

Overall, incorporating blocks into your yoga practice can help to make the practice more accessible, effective, and enjoyable.
