I am a HUGE advocate for yoga blocks! Why? Well they are amazing and here's why...
Yoga blocks never ever take away from your practice. If you find that you don't like using blocks but don't know why, it's a call to action and it's time you grabbed a few blocks for your next practice. They can be a huge benefit in balancing poses AND in deep stretches, they're a prenatal yoga class' best friend and they can be used to really help align the body in certain poses.
The best part is, if you find you no longer need the block or don't benefit from it, just remove it and place it to the side. It's a win-win and a huge component of our yin practice. Sometimes letting the body hang for too long can feel rough or even tense so to avoid that we can rest the body on blocks and gently ease into poses and our edge.
Next time you pop in, grab some blocks and we can work with them together!
