Today’s product review will be about the best yoga blocks with environmental benefits to the end user in mind.
Yoga blocks are useful for the beginner and also for the experienced yogi.
From cork to foam blocks we will endeavor to find which blocks are best for you.
In previous reviews about cork Yoga mats, and how durable they are in a hot enviroment can be a problem with wear and tear.
So be cautious if you love your Bikram Yoga.
No real feedback to say if they are any good in a real life situation.
My only concern with cork is how long will it last.

This product is available as a single or 2 piece option.
1 piece – 4 x 6 x 9 – 10 cm x 15 cm x 23 cm, 1 piece or 2 piece (7.6 cm x 15 cm x 23 cm).

Manduka Cork Yoga Blocks:
Manduka is a well respected name in the Yoga industry.
You know the product will be of the highest quality.
They claim 100% cork harvested under strict regulations designed to conserve the cork oak tree.

Made without toxic chemicals during harvesting and manufacturing.
Sold as a 1 piece 9 x 4 x 6 inches or 225 mm x 100 mm x 150 mm and weighs two pounds or just under a kilo.
The Manduka Cork Block is of a high standard for yoga blocks.
Cork is a natural material that has a firmness not found in foam blocks, and allows you to feel secure in the support it provides.
One of the customer reviews stated they noticed the difference between the foam and cork block and would never use foam again.
Interesting review i will need to try the cork block as i have only used foam in the past.

Wear and tear maybe a factor in hot conditions:

The block comes in a rainbow of colors and 100% non-toxic and Eco-friendly material gets my nod of approval.
They are available in 1 piece and 2 piece packs always good to have the option.
Always best to have 2 blocks on hand maybe you only need one to replace a lost or damaged block.
They are available in 4 inches or 100 mm i speak both
measurements’imperial or metric.
Comment below if you prefer both measurements as i don’t want to exclude anybody.
The only negatives come from people with delivery issues and being damaged in delivery.
Some feel they are a bit soft to always use good to know if this has been a problem you have encountered before with other blocks.

Thicker than most blocks:
I personally have a foam block and have always used foam blocks in my practice of Yoga.
Their appears to be a price difference with cork blocks being more expensive and some brands even more expensive.
Their are many blocks on the market and these are some of the best around with all fitting the Eco friendly requirement which is important to me and most Yoga practitioners.
If i was going to pick one from the cork range and one from the foam range.
I would pick the Manduka Cork and for the foam the Reehut Block which sounds promising.
I am sure you would not have a problem returning any of the products to the supplier if the claim was legitimate.
You have to remember if you constantly use the product there will be wear and tear.
I would love to hear your thoughts about this post or this site in general.
I will answer all the comments on my website personally so drop me a line below if you have any Yoga questions or comments.
I’m happy to help any way that I can.
