A yoga block is a versatile prop that can be used in many different yoga poses to help with alignment, balance, and stability. Here are a few ways to use a yoga block:
- Alignment: Place the yoga block under your hands or feet to help align your body in poses such as Downward-Facing Dog, Warrior II, and Triangle Pose.
- Balance: Use the yoga block as a support while working on balance poses such as Tree Pose and Half-Moon Pose.
- Stretching: Place the yoga block on its highest setting and rest your back knee on it to release tension in the hip flexors in Low lunge pose.
- Relaxation: Place the yoga block under your knees for a supported and comfortable relaxation in Savasana.
It is always recommended to consult with a certified yoga instructor to make sure you are using the yoga block correctly and safely. Also, remember to adjust the height of the block depending on your flexibility, height and the pose you are doing.
