Blocks, or bricks, cubes, for yoga are called universal accessories that come to the rescue in many situations. The name comes from the shape of the product - a hexagonal box, which, by the way, is characterized by lightness and stability. The sizes of blocks are usually standard: 21-23x11-12x6-7 cm (LxWxH). If the need arises, you can search for models of larger sizes.
Buy cubes for yoga today can be made from different materials. The most popular are:
- wood. Made from pine, alder and other species. The surface can be simply sanded, with additional impregnation or varnish. Of the advantages, it should be noted the sufficient density of the material, the ability to use in complex power practices. Of the minuses: significant weight, plus in the absence of processing the probability of driving a splinter.
- пробка. Изготавливаются такие блоки путем уплотнения и проклеивания частичек натуральной пробки. Так обеспечивается значительная плотность (жесткость) изделия, что мега значимо для различных практик. Еще один плюс, который нельзя оставлять без внимания – хорошее сцепление, не скольжение рук. Минус тот же, что и в предыдущем варианте – большая масса.
- EVA foam. The most popular yoga blocks to date, because they are versatile and practical. May have a different density, as well as a level of softness / hardness. They are characterized by more comfortable forms (for example, with recesses for the hands). Do not cause difficulties when carrying, as it is very light. Grip well with palms. And also, unlike wood and cork, this material allows you to create blocks of a wide variety of designs and colors, which is also important for the general atmosphere. The disadvantages are, with so many advantages, excluded. Unless, one can attribute here that the products cannot be left for a long time under the sun, otherwise damage to the structure is possible.
