Lean On Me
As one of ecofabulous’ favorite yoga teachers says, “stability brings flexibility.” Tempting as it may be to contort your body in order to master a pose, risking pain or injury simply isn’t worth it. Get a leg up—or an arm, for that matter—during sun salutations with the help of Gaiam’s cork yoga bricks and your poses will look and feel more expressive.
Natural and rapidly renewable, cork is one of the most sustainable materials out there. It lends wonderful durability to these indispensable props, so you’ll feel less anxious about leaning your weight into them as you float into Ardha Chandrasana (Half Moon Pose) or stretch into Utthita Parsvakonasana (Extended Side Angle Pose). Trust us, you’ll never reach for those flimsy foam blocks after using Gaiam’s version during a sweat-inducing Vinyasa flow session. Even the most seasoned yogis could use a hand every now and then, so cultivate a patience in your practice and let the cork creations deliver you to moksha.
